      Wow Tania, that’s a big number. I’m sure that will come down soon. Alexa just tracked my visit for one! I love that entry table redo – I only wish there was access to cheap or free furniture here in the Caymans – I’d be all over it.

    I also think it’s important to note that once installed Alexa does collect your browsing history. Some consider this spyware, and there may be a few downloads that may be unwanted by those who have installed the bar. Just a head’s up to go in with eyes open.

      Thanks for the note Patti – you are right that this tracks our website viewing statistics but I don’t think we need to worry about it being too big brother and keeping files on us personally. These days with cookies on every site, each time you visit a site with advertising etc your visit is tracked including where you came from, and where you went afterwards. If you use any Google product then they track every little thing about you too. And I’m pleased to say that I’ve not noticed any issued with popups or downloads since using Alexa – but users should review their terms and conditions on the site if they have any concerns about the data that is collected. I consider the term spyware to mean something more malicious – where an unintended download is tracking your keystrokes or logins for suspicious reasons and I’m sure that Alexa doesn’t do this.

      I’m very familiar with your site, and thank you for the link, it sends a few visitors my way for the Pinterest patterns board. Your reputation figure is already great – lots of people linking into you which means you must have great content. I’m sure this ranking is going to improve quickly for you. I’m off to visit your page now, and give it a view from my toolbar!

    I have used Alexa for a long time, and with my old site, I made it to 108,000. Then google deleted my site as spam (I was on blogger). I started a new site, and it started out as 6 million. In about a month and a half, my current rank is 258,116. I have gotten back most of my old follwers and even some new ones. And now I’m on wordpress. I’m going to visit everyone so far and see how you’re doing!

      Of course there is hope – I can see it all over your site! It seems you need to get yourself noticed a bit more – you have an interesting perspective, so shout about it and share. Check out the linky party directory and see where you can share your posts to draw in some new readers and hopefully subscribers too. And photos – the internet is becoming more and more visual – especially among women users who love pinterest. Include great pictures on your posts to make them pinable and shareable for even more readers. Thanks for reading Cheryl.

    Last week, it was 1 107 641 when I first checked. Can you give me any good news about these scores? =)

      Hi Monica, good news that the overall ranking is going in the right direction. A lower number is better. It is not perfect, but it is a ranking system you can use to get an idea of how your traffic compares with other sites in your niche. But of course its only an idea. The only exact way to compare would be to use real visitor or page view numbers, and bloggers don’t usually publish this info – although you can often find it on their advertising pages. The only way to really make a big difference is to get more visitors, and visitors with the toolbar installed will count towards your ranking. In the end, it always comes down to the same thing – write epic content which readers keep coming back each week to read, and want to share. More visitors=more page views = more subscribers=better rankings = more opportunities = more clicks = more affiliate sales/views on your adverts = more money.

      Oh dear – you have the highest possible rating – no rating at all. Look on the bright side – it can only get better from here and you are just starting out. It takes a while to get noticed and attract a loyal bunch of readers. I just visited your site so my toolbar counted a visit for you. I hope in a month you will be reporting a number.

      Hi, and thanks for leaving your rating. I’ve visited your site and your Facebook page and although you have a lot of followers, you are struggling to get any interaction, comments or likes it seems. One thing I don’t see on the site is a newsletter sign up – this can be a great way to get readers to come back regularly and promote your offers directly to their inbox. I’ve got a mailing list series coming up very soon which could help you.

I started in Mid-May of this year. I am with Blogger, even though my research leading up to opening my site was pointing me to WordPress. I was just scared of it. Anyway, My World # is 2,846,144 and US is 255,132. Sites linking in is 71. I’ve downloaded the toolbar, so I just need to restart my computer.

        It’s just because your site is so new Gina. It’s only been since mid-May, so about 8 weeks. But I can see you have built up a great following in that time and the site and projects look great. It will take a while for your keywords to settle and search traffic to come, but then you should see a steady increase in visitors.

      I’m sorry to say that 4000 views in 8 months is quite low, and although your data will be recorded by Alexa, it doesn’t put your site high enough up the list of sites that they produce a page of results for you yet. If you can continue to grow your traffic and start to register higher up the list of sites, then eventually you will get a starting score and you can grow from there.

However, my stats have a curious change, my overall ranking has decreased a bit but my US ranking INCREASED. It went to 611,916 global and 91,254 US ranking. Hmmm…Could that mean that less people from the US visited the site?

      Hi Maria, The rankings are averaged over time, but are updated daily and sometimes you will see wild fluctuations – and yes, sometimes the overall ranking can go down while the US can go up a little. It all depends on the mix of people who visit the site. It isn’t a really accurate way to rank your site, and you can see this if you compare your site to others with similar traffic that might have a wildly different Alexa rank. It’s just one of the ways to measure your site and should be used in conjunction with all of your other stats. Don’t worry too much about short term variations – its the long term trend of increasing traffic and improving ranking that you want to see!
