    Its good for your website, because if you check google alexa rank it will show 1 so 13 is not bad.

    I pay no attention to Alexa, but as far as I understand it, you can't say a particular number equates to so much traffic. Alexa ranks sites in comparison to other sites, so the lower the number, the more popular the site is overall - but that's all that the rank really tells you.

    Alexa Rank 1 has more weight age then Alexa Rank 13. As TechnoBear said, lower the number, the more popular the site.

    There is no doubt that Alexa tool can't measure any website traffic. The only way to know traffic is through a site's server logs or web analytic tool installed on it.

    Thanks for clearing this i thought high Alexa ranking is better like google PR, but it's not and i learnt a lot about it by searching because of your post and as far as traffic is concered if a site's alexa is under 100,000 it would get more traffic

    Alexa ranking is totally dependent upon your website traffic and if your Alexa ranking is high, that means it has a very low traffic, and if your Alexa ranking is low that means your website has a very good traffic. Low Alexa ranking is good for the website. If you have 13 Alexa then it is good for your website it shows your website have a large number of visitors.
