    Lightbulb Are Alexa's traffic rankings accurate?

    I'm hearing conflicting stories on this. I use a site's Alexa ranking to decide whether to advertise or exchange links with them.

    I only notice that tool updating in every 24 hours. Moreover, when advertising or exchanging links, I don't look at alexa stat, but on the number of backlinks as well as the PR (these two are far more important in SEO than those Alexa numbers as far as I am concern)

    I think a combination of Alexa tools and Google Analytics works well. In Alexa, I get to see a quick look at my competitor's backlinks, where their traffic is coming from and going to from their site.

    Alexa is not a reliable tool and can easily be fooled to achieve higher rankings. Just search google with how to get high alexa ranking and you'll learn that its so much easy that even a newbie can do it with no problems at all. Many webmasters do not consider Alexa at all when buying/exchanging links unless its on a pretty high side.

    Alexa is indicate the traffic results and ranking only it is not any concerned with SEO or Google. I always do SEO for Google not for Alexa.
