Alexa Ranking System

Lots of you know Google Page Ranks for sure, but what about Alexa.
First of all alexa don't rank pages but whole sites. Second if Google Page Rank is based on the pages that links to you, Alexa is based on the Traffic and this make it more real!
Alexa compare traffic between sites and give top 500 sites, and also a search engine to search the top 100,000 sites.
Then getting in top 100,000 is so hard? Yes so hard but why not getting linked in the Top 100,000 ?
This is another thing but the thing that I liked most in Alexa is the real ranking
For example : number 1 is yahoo then 2 is google 3 is you tube 4 is live (ms) and 5 is MSN.
With Alexa, you can know the sites that are linking to you and their rank. and now the rank help you more than Google PR because you know the site traffic and how much it can drive traffic to you;)

The ranking in alexa shows the total traffic being generated in your website. There are various steps involved in improving ranking in alexa. First of all it is suggested to download the alexa toolbar. Then the content, which is written, should include write-ups on alexa search engine. But a low ranking on Alexa does not indicate that the traffic is not being generated on Google, Yahoo and MSN search engines. Given the fact that Alexa ranking for a site is calculated on the basis of how many visitors with the Alexa toolbar installed have visited that particular site, the results can be inaccurate most of the time.

For those who thought that Google has the monopoly as far as search engines are concerned, well, think again. Though Google is still at the top, it has started receiving competition from various quarters albeit at a smaller scale. Alexa is one search engine that was thought to give some competition to Google in some quarters of the world. On the lines of Alexa and Google Trends, Complete, Inc has come up with Snapshot. Snapshot is thought to be much more accurate then Alexa but there are certain limitations that might thwart the popularity of Snapshot. Firstly, in Snapshot one can compare only three sites. Secondly, sites with less that 10000 uniques are excluded and thirdly, this is available only for the US audience. These three limitations still keep Google the favorite followed by Alexa.
