Alexa traffic

by Ani David 10 replies
Seriously I dont understand why my alexa traffic keeps increasing. When I had low traffic it was around 500,000 globally but my traffic increased gradually but alexa rank went up to 1,200,000. I want to know why this is happening and does alexa rank really counts?

    Why do care about alexa ranking its a third party metrics has nothing to do with the SERP's.

    And anyway alexa ranking takes time to get updated may even take a month or two to show the rankings according to your present traffic.

    Well, Alexa metric is actually not a ranking factor at all, but rather an estimated number of how much traffic your site is getting. There is no access to your website statistics either. So, it's recommended to pay more attention to Google Analytics data for example and other ranking factors rather than Alexa.

    Alexa is not rank factor. we can't completely believe to Alexa ranking. It is exact ranking method. Check another rank methods.

    Alexa traffic is not accurate and doesn't affect your ranking in any search engine. I run such test around 2015. During 3 month I was able to boost my Alexa ranking well, but search results at Bing and Google wasn't affected at all.
    So just ignore Alexa, it is easy to manipulate Alexa rank and Search Engine not use it at all.

    When, oh when, will they finally decide to take down the Alexa site and bury it in the trash heap of other worthless sites like DMOZ so that irrelevant questions like this will cease?

    Alexa tells you up front that for sites that low, the stats are meaningless.

    Well, they're all meaningless.

    I can't believe people check their alexa for anything more than entertainment.

    Alexa is not consider as ranking signal. It is just third party metrics that provide data of that depends on your daily traffic & user behaviour.

      No, Alexa has NOTHING to do with your traffic and user behavior. They cannot see that. They guess how much traffic you might be getting based upon rankings. It is a completely worthless website!

        It is not a worthless website. Amazon makes millions from webmasters using their services. It's part of their webmaster and seo services. They can give you a plethora of valuable information if you are willing to pay for it.

        Amazon wants to be the go to for webmasters, big websites, and big companies. And they are winning the cloud game at the moment. Tons of big websites use amazon internet and information services. Which can be a problem. If amazon servers choke, like they did recently, a swath of US companies are down for the count.
