This Alexa Rating Malarky

Recommended Posts

Not an exact science, can't ever replace your own stats. on unique visitor numbers etc., but this is shocking :o


Personally I think there`s been a huge over reaction to the `ickle tweaks on the forums and there hasn't been that much change since Fubra took the helm.

I'm genuinely gutted that numbers have fallen away so quickly :( We're not even registering a reach for yesterday from a figure of around 70 per day....

if memory serves it only tracks visitors with an alexa toolbar installed to their browser

Whilst that is correct do not underestimate the connection to Amazon, the largest on line retailer on the planet and the tracking in and out of the site thereof.

All the sites I`m involved with follow a fairly regular pattern, unique visitors down, next day Alexa rating down. Visitors up, rating up. Whilst not precise, some days the ranking/reach is puzzling and open to question, over a month the figures are uncannily accurate. Alexa ratings can be tampered with by utilising crude software to appear to increase traffic, doesn`t help with advertisers who will still want to see other evidence; hitwise, neilsen, your own stats etc. Also until your rating is around 100K it is difficult for Alexa to gauge traffic, but overall a very useful comparison tool amongst the other free to air metrics. ;)

I'm finding the site so annoying I can hardly be bothered. Only if I get more annoyed by a poster than the site will I post much.
