    Alexa shows different results

    Does anybody know why Alexa in recent days shows different results for the same web site?

    What do you mean? Could you be a bit more specific?

    Today and yesterday I have visited my web site for several times. Sometimes Alexa shows my web site ranking is 421, 446 and sometimes it shows 233,782. The same thing happened with SitePoint and the other sites I have visited.

    If you read their help, you will find out that Alexa ranks those web sites by people who visit them while they are on Alexa. Maybe fewer people visited certain web sites on certain days. Dunno know.

    I found this answer on their FAQ pages:

    The toolbar and the overview page retrieve traffic ranking data from two different sources which are not always updated on the same schedule. If there is a difference between the two rankings, the ranking on the overview page will be the most up-to-date number.
    The only problem is that results on overview page are not the same, too.
