Nonsensical Alexa ranks

Lucia from BigBucksBlogger wrote a detailed article showing how nonsensical and untrustworthy Alexa ranks are. I’m glad that she did. After some months browsing through Alexa, I had already realised that the ranks displayed over there don’t do justice to the real traffic of many websites. Still their system is highly regarded in several ad marketplaces. Go figure.
