Alexa Rank and a New Blog


I'll do a fun post later tonight, but I have a couple of blogging notes to share. I'm pretty happy that my Alexa rating just went below 200,000. It was 196,215 all day today. Still can't get above 0 in Google PR, but I think I need more links from other web sites.

My other bit of news is that I've started another blog, one that's much more mercenary. With all the blogs I'm maintaining I seem to have learned a few things along the way. And I would like a blog where I can review products occasionally or blatantly promote EC contests, etc. I DON'T want to do all that here. So, anyone who is interested is welcome to visit me there. If you just want to stay here for the fun stuff, I don't blame you one bit. This is merely for your information.

The journey of Alexa- The Web Information Company has never been a smooth one. Alexa that has been in the scenario almost from the start of the Web had seen immense growth and popularity and then a pretty morbid phase. However, it went back to the drawing board and sketched out new ways to pull back the company to steadiness. Several new innovations and changes have been made to Alexa since the time of its inception partly to stay in sync with the changing times and demands and partly to combat its competitors. As for example, till some time back the popularity of various websites was measured by the data collected from the users of the Alexa toolbar. However, the company went for a change in April 2008. Today other factors, apart from the Alexa toolbar, are also taken into account to determine the popularity and traffic of a given website. However, the point to ponder is that the “other sources” that are determinant of a websites Alexa rankings are not clearly cut out. They are vague and misty. Nevertheless, Alexa is still one of the most credible and powerful players of the web.

Martin- I see that you came here by searching for blogs that talk about Alexa and then using the comment to post links to your own site. That is really close to spamming. Thanks for your thoughts. If I see this same post on another blog's comments, I'll be back to delete it.
