How Alexa Statistics Work Posted July 31, 2012

Alexa statistics are great for comparing different website traffic or overviewing traffic trends for long periods of time. It is very useful when comparing more than one website at a time.

We have integrated Alexa statistics on along with our other helpful information sources so you have every stat you need in one place! The Alexa index is massive, with millions of websites in it.

Some of the drawbacks to Alexa though are the lack of data for small websites. A website has to be in the top 100,000 on the Internet, which typically means 10,000 visitors monthly or more. Again, it is hard to say that the traffic estimation side of Alexa is accurate, but the traffic trends tend to be.

Trending can be a very important factor when judging a website. It is best to use Alexa directly for comparing or simply trying to obtain an idea of a website's history online, reviewing the ups and downs that are typical on any site. You can however use our site directly to pull the Alexa charts so you can view without having to leave our site, and make it more helpful for your report.

That is the idea of - every web stat you need in one place, without having to go around to a dozen website in search of the information you seek. You can get everything you need right here, right now.
