    If you care about promotion of a website then yes Alexa is important. It is basically the same as SEO and getting people to your site so yes it matters a lot for promotion

    In terms of ranking your site on a search engine, Alexa rank does not matter much if at all. I use it more as an analytic tool for my traffic but nothing I worry too much about unless it is a big project

    I think one reason Alexa rankings matter is when talking to potential advertisers.

    It's so funny to see some of these people that don't know what their talking about and are wrong, say some of the things they say.

    It's kinda a meaningful metric for webmaster related sites, outside of this industry users don't have the toolbar installed, so it becomes less meaningful. I have seen plenty of sites get much more traffic then sites with a higher alexa ranking.

    Yes. Alexa, like Google PR, matters when you sell your website. Buyers will check before make their decision.

    Alexa ranking is traffic ranking. Site having alexa ranking 1 means site have maximum traffic among all the websites. If you need to improve your alexa ranking link you website in high quality relevant sites.

    I personally don't. Alexa is nowhere near accurate and most traffic from the US (the traffic that matters) is not recorded because Americans don't have the Alexa toolbar. We see it's worthlessness...

    Having links don't increase your Alexa rankings. Having traffic does and only if they are using the toolbar will it be recorded anyway...
    ---
    oh ya, BTW, to both of you, Alexa can be faked very easily. Another thing we are aware of so another reason we don't use it...

    ---

    when your ACTUAL, REAL stats show you large increases.

    Thanks for the details about Alexa..

    Rightly said, Alexa rankings matter if you rank below 100000..
    Alexa ranking is a matter of concern for the webmasters and for the sellers who want to sell their domain..

    Alexa ranking takes the aggregate of three month traffic data and it is a combined measurement of page views and users which is taken by the use of alexa tool bar.

    For those or blog owners who do not make their web or blog to look for money in the internet, Alexa rank is not important and useful.For web or blog owners who become their web or blog to look for money, alexa rank is very important.It is important in that case because money giver websites, Texts Link ads, Sponsored Review, ReviewMe, ask2link and others become alexa rank as the standard. Better alexa rank your web or blog has, more advertisers want to advertise in your web or blog.
