    I've determined Alexa is pretty much useless in determining a site's traffic or popularity. That big surge was from me when I had the Alexa toolbar installed. If one user can have that much of an effect, it doesn't speak highly for the technology...

    Very interesting stuff. Yeah, that spike looks like some sort of hiccup from Alexa.

    Some folks will use the Alexa data as a metric, but in my opinion the data is too easily manipulated. Again, those wild swings in early 2004 were when I had the Alexa toolbar installed. If only one user can have that much of an effect.....well...



    The concept is a good one, but only users with the Alexa toolbar installed contribute to the results. It would be cool if browsers had this built in, but this inevitably would raise privacy concerns.
