i want to know how alexa gets its ranking , all i know that it takes hits from people using alexa toolbar .... but is that all ? is there a genius mathematical equation they use ? some sample ratios , may be ? ..... i realy want to know
cause i run a website , 2 month now , and my rank on alexa is growing very high , i know my traffic is growing but there is something making me suspicious , my rank went like this :
when i first launched i was in the 6 millions , then jumped to the 3 millions , then 581,xxx , today i reached 484,741 , and i have a graph on alexa :)
so is this right , or sometime alexa makes some errors ??
and the funny thing is , i am the most active user on my site and i DON'T HAVE AN ALEXA TOOLBAR;) , i use an opera broweser with no tool bars installed
