Yeah, it's pretty cool, but has also made me think about how true this ranking really is:
- Although I am getting a lot of traffic, in truth, it is far less than you may think.
- Due to being on that page, I am not getting a lot of referral traffic from that page. I would think that the further up you get, the more viral traffic that you do get
- Alexa is strongly skewed towards the internet marketing crowd. This is because it is a lot more likely that Internet Marketers have the tool bar installed than the average person. A couple of my sites receive 10s of thousands of visitors a day, but because of their niche barely hit the top 50k some months.
- Apart from the ego and my wife quite liking being with the 6th hottest guy on the internet is there actually any advantage of having a high alexa ranking?
Anyway, those are my thoughts. What are yours?!
