    Thanks for a topic.
    But there must be some bug in Alexa, because almost every site has been changed rank to worst.

    My directory went from 207,000 to 177,000. And my other sites show improvements as well. Not that I care about that number. The precise traffic rank is in my log files. :)

    Alexa just made some changes. Who knows, maybe they will change it back. It's just like Google PageRank. There's not much we can do about it except continue to improve our sites and try to increase traffic to them.

    It doesn't matter anyway. Alexa doesn't bring in money. xD

    Could it be that the base they are using needs to be updated or expand for better accuracy? Me too experience huge fluctuations for no reason at all, at least my logs doesn't say so. More or less given up on it.

    Well I've dropped about 7,000 places, so I'm not exactly thrilled to bits about this change.

    But if it's more accurate, I can't really complain. I shall persevere!

    That happens only to webmaster, seo related sites which are visited by techies having alexa toolbar. My auto, adult sites did not show any alexa improvement, even though the traffic improved by over 100%.
