    Please tell me on what basis Alexa Ranking is evaluate. I heard that Alexa show Ranking among those website who are opened in the browser which have installed Alexa Toolbar.

    Yea it averages them out but only counts traffic from their toolbar users. It gives a good basis to evaluate on but is not something to rely on by any means. When buying / selling a site you still need AWstats or Google analytics.

    Yes, you are right, the traffic status is based on the traffic from the visitor with alexa tools installed only

    Hey Akash,
    why to bother about Alexa ranking as it is not true and only based upon the number of visitors of your site with Alexa toolbar..Sometime, it shows high traffic due to high bounce rate of a site then why to trust on the traffic on the basis of Alexa rank..
