First off…don’t even bother about those ‘ i got my brains from a box of Cracker Jack ‘ Alexa haters…Alexa is a very good tool to determine traffic and they recently improved it to make it even better…
generally, as I said in the last post this is how it boils down:
anything over 1,000,000 has little or no traffic to speak of
sites between 500,000 and 999,999 are very low traffic
sites between 250,000 and 499,999 are low traffic but have potential
sites with a traffic rating between 100,000 and 249,000 are medium traffic sites
sites with a traffic rating between 50,000 and 99,999 are high traffic sites
and, of course, those with a ranking between 1 and 49,999 are the top grade sites with tons of traffic.
Alexa is also a good indicator of whether or not you should advertise on a site…using the above figures you can determine if the price you are paying is giving you a good return in potential traffic.
