That’s it, Alexa sucks!

2 Jul

I’ve had some doubts about Alexa as a metrics tool, but now I’m sure: it stinks. Don’t get me wrong; I already knew that Alexa is far from flawless, but I didn’t think it was this bad.

Because this blog is still in beta (you’ve got to keep it 2.0…) I haven’t posted a link to it anywhere. Besides Erik-Jan -who happened to track his Technorati RSS and saw a new link pointing to his website-, I didn’t receive any visitors. Erik-Jan + me = two visitors last week. According to Alexa, Wiep.net was ranked 209,704 last week…

    You can always try other alexa-like-services like http://www.quantcast.com :)

    For instance http://www.quantcast.com/seomoz.org tells me that there are more females readin seomoz and that the most active age group is above 55… ehh, that doesn’t seem right… ahh well never mind.

    Yay Alexa rulez!
