Alexa Ranking, Do I Care?

Today, I received a surprised back link from my good blogger colleague, Sir Azwan Hadzree, happily announcing that he has improved his 3 months old blog Alexa Rank. Yeah, we did thought of challenging each other on improving our Alexa rank but did not publicly announce it and the mutual agreement was signed about 3 months ago. However, due to 2 unique reasons, my Alexa not only dropped but I lost the saga. Those reasons are:

1) I forgot about the alexa war.
2) I was focusing on other net activities.

For record, presently, Azwan.my Alexa rank is 737,479 while cyza.us is 1,575,379. So, what should I do now? Should I challenge him again and try to kick his ass? Say another 3 months and we checked on our Alexa ranks and Google PR? What do you guys think? What do you think Azwan?

I’ll follow majority of the commenters input. Final decision will be made this Friday midnight.

What the hell is Alexa Ranking?

For the sake of those of you who aren’t sure what is Alexa Rank, Alexa is a very powerful tool used to rank web site traffic. You can find out how your web site traffic stacks up against all your competitors (in my case, Azwan.my)! Besides using alexa.com, you can also alexa ranking tool to find out how well your site ranks up against millions of other sites on the Web.

Remember: “The lower the Alexa ranking number the more heavily visited the site.” Some examples are:

cyza.us (rank 1,575,379 🙂 ), amazon.com (rank 14); weather.com (rank 64); cnn.com (rank 26); google.com (rank 5); Yahoo.com (rank 1). These rankings are generally consistent with the amount of traffic they have.
