    Thank you for sharing and enhancing my knowledge about Alexa. Through your blog I got to more understand the importance of Alexa ranking. Statics and the usage of Alexa ranking, why its not so popular all this stuff helps to take better decision around Alexa ranking and its a great way to attract more advertisers. So, in short one cannot rely only on Alexa ranking but it should not be ignored too.

    Very Informative slides.Its true,Alexa ranking totally depends on Alexa toolbar but there is no denying Alexa ranking impacts users interests to follow any blog or website. Digital marketers prefer Google Analytic tool over Alexa, however Alexa has a upper hand of providing site owner information over Google Analytic.

    The size of the audience that Alexa collects data to determine ranking is too small as it is only the traffic coming from people using Alexa toolbar. Also Alexa does not collect information from sub domains or sub pages. However if the website traffic is generally high, then Alexa helps in segregating the source, inturn helps in website monetization.

    Alexa provides information about traffic data like ALOQUA in oracle. It shows the ranking and popularity. High Ranking increases interest in people to follow the blog or website.

    When there is so much clutter out there in the world wild web – Alexa ranking serves as one of the filters to sieve through them.

    Also isn’t it time for Alexa to take social networking factor while ranking today’s sites?

    Alexa offers you to get status on your website & can be used as a metric to measure your website’s performance. But the inaccuracy of information makes it just another option. But Alexa ranking is still considered by many.

    Alexa ranking is one of the tool that provide information about traffic data. Though it is not as good as famous tools like Google analytics. It helps us to know the views of the readers who read our blogs or any website. Help us to know some fair approximate ranking about the particular site and our blog as well. High Ranking in Alexa increases interest in people to follow the blog or website.

    Alexa ranking can be used as a competitive intelligence tool to compare the traffic of websites, but it is not accurate. Alexa can only capture data about a website if its visitors have the Alexa toolbar installed in the browser.

    I think Alexa is one of the best tool available, as it shows Ranking of the website and popularity, on which basis one can get noticed about company.

    Its good to point out the limitations of the data set. Especially in that it is skewed towards webmasters and techies. In my experience if your Alexa rank is above 100,000 it is very hard to estimate traffic. However, the dataset is pretty good for the top 50,000 websites and besides it the only tool we have (even if it is not so good).
