  • Computer Chat Alexa ranking

    Hi,

    Could somebody explain why we lost almost 500% in Alexa ranking?

    Our traffic is still the same as it was 4-5 months ago, when we starting to lose good rank.

    How this could happen?

    People with the Alexa toolbar installed stopped visiting your site or uninstalled the toolbar.

    Install the toolbar on your computer, refresh your forums a couple hundred times a day and your rank will back where it was in no time.

        What do you mean? That it has been compromised or what?

        If that is the case, then alexa is pretty much irrelevant. And I wondered why some less visited portals have better rating. Advertisers want still good rating though.

          From what I've read, most people don't find Alexa ranking of much importance anymore. Everything gone Google mad instead.

            Always has. Alexa rankings have always been very arbitrary and have never reflected worth or real traffic value. This is one reason why it hasn't been built into browsers with the 5 generation. Go to their webpage and looking at the "Hottest Pages Right Now" listing.

            Anyway, Amazon is putting more resources into A9 these days than they do with Alexa.

              No, I am not talking about it being compromised, obviously. See what Wayne just posted, those are basically my arguments.
