What if I used Alexa toolbar? I am an Opera user, and Alexa toolbar is available only on Firefox and Internet Explorer.
What’s Alexa? It’s the most recognized website analytics founded by Amazon, that collects data through a toolbar installed by the users. The website gives how many visitors approximately visit certain websites. The truth: Alexa is not reliable at all. There’s no real use for having Alexa toolbar, beside a few tools to get to know the fame of a website from unreliable data. The most of the users of Alexa toolbar are developers, which makes the public using it a niche. What’s more, Alexa is available only on IE and Firefox, that together cover 87% of the users, but still leaving out the people using more exotic software – that usually are the most experienced users.
Now, FoOlRulez has always been in rank 160.000 and 230.000. It’s pretty unreasonable for my point of view, because there’s lots of websites with less visitors than us being in top 50.000. So, I decided to use Firefox on FoOlRulez.org, and see how big of a difference it makes.
They say Alexa is just that fragile. Then, I want to break it.
