Alexa adds new features and reporting options
Alexa has added some new options to their site pages. While I can't take credit for them all, I certainly hope my constant nagging about the "today vs. yesterday" got them to change it. Whatever the reason, I can rejoice! Here is an overview of the changes: geographic reporting, "yesterday", reach figures, and traffic ranks by country.
So here are some interesting stats… of ALL of the web sites in the U.S., CenterNetworks ranks 11,000. Not bad I guess. We also rank 4,396 in Switzerland! Yes! I have been working hard on the swiss marketing plan.
I think these updates are moving in the right direction for Alexa. They have added many useful features over the past few months. As I have said from the beginning, Alexa could be an ultra-valuable tool if we can believe in the data. The key is having publishers, advertisers, metrics analysts feel comfortable with what Alexa is putting out. The simple fact is that it won't matter if they add 5000 great features if the numbers can't be trusted.
And my question from last weekend is still unanswered: with over 30,000 unique visitors on Sunday and Monday, we didn't even receive any increase on the Alexa charts and graphs. I hope someone from Alexa can help me understand why and maybe if there is something broken. Oh yea and get my related links updated.
Here is a screenshot of the new page with regards to CenterNetworks:
