How much value do you put in Alexa Ranking for websites?
How many of mosaicHUB members value Alexa Ranking for websites? If your answer is no, then which alternative tools do you use to check the ranking of your website?
The only metric that matters is conversion - how many people click the CTA, call you up, fill-in a form, sign-up for your product/service, etc.
Everything else is a distraction.
In practice I think it depends on your goals. **Alexa ranking is a vanity metric after all.**
You can rank in the top 10 of Alexa and make zero dollars in profit. See http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/wikipedia.org
I think it's good to use as a comparison tool, but the best comparison tool is your own internal metrics for pageviews, signups, returning users, etc. Beat those every month and your alexa ranking will increase, no question.
Not relevant compared to google. It turns out that even your google ranks don't mean what they seem as most companies place less value on the number of visitors than they do on having a low bounce rate (less than 50%) and a higher ctr.
I think Alexa ranking is very essential to judge your ranking ,check yourself all top web site in Alexa ranking giving excellent business ,so if you rank 15000 you must get business check global ranking of Mosaicl Hub is 31,884 but we all love the site and site getting popularity day by day
Alexa is not an important indicator for us or our clients. We utilize Google Analytics, GoSquared, and moz.com for much more in depth understanding of traffic patterns and growth, also for SEO we love Advanced Web Ranking. These tools utilized together give us a much more relevant understanding of site utilization speific to our clients' needs.
Yes but also use SEO link assist tools to check keyword ranking, competition, social and full auditing. Woorank is also a good tool as well as Google analytics and webmaster.
Not much. While traditional SEO metrics are something to consider, I liked to focus on making a website a destination for new and returning visitors promote the site social and grassroots methods and let the traffic build naturally.
Alexa doesn't give you objective data about website traffic ranking. woorank.com gives you more great value about website ranking.
It seems that Domain Authority and Moz rank has become more relevant than Alexa
None. I look at the business goals and if a site is meeting them and if you want external validation I would look to someone like http://www.authoritylabs.com for keyword ranking.
I feel 70 percent you can judge the performance of your site from Alexa ,other you can judge through how much feed back you get but Alexa ranking is important to judge site performance
Maybe not all that important, but it is certainly something worth considering.
Its all about traffic. Rank is based on traffic. All of them base it on the same general scale.
Alexa is still an important ranking tool, i tend to use it basically with other ranks and optimisation tools. Most of the time something like http://woorank.com or http://dareboost.com will give you more info about your website.
Alexa is a great ranking tool, but this is not hte only tool. I use SEOTools for ranking my wemsites, it includes Alexa, Google PR, and other ranking engines
Alexa is essentially traffic only, which doesn't really matter unless you are in the top 500 or so...I would focus on your Google Webmaster tools and your average ranking for individual keywords. Google ranks the best sites, not the most popular or fancy, so I give them the most cred.
Take your Alexa ranking with a grain of salt for in my opinion it is a useless metric. Alexa will not efficiently or accurately track your traffic and they will not be able to serve as any sort of indicator in respect to SEO. In fact all Alexa does is track a small fraction of people that actually have the Alexa toolbar installed. I'm also told that the toolbar is considered to be “adware” by MacAfee while Symantec another major anti-virus program considers the toolbar “trackware.” The toolbar is not installed on any of my sites. I'm also told that if you wanted to ”game” Alexa; it is actually quite easy. - PWD
The answer to this question involves a bit more than the obvious. First of all you should ask yourself what the purpose of your website is, or the site you are optimizing. Is it a eCommerce site, a personal portfolio, an corporate profile or a social network. The list obviously goes on.
Yes, we use Alexa, but it is just a nice number. For business decisions and SEO we rely on Google Webmaster tools
