Alexa - see traffic details

Came across Alexa.com today, via a client. You can search on a URL, then you get a ’see traffic details’ link. It gives you information such as daily reach, rank and daily page views, and where people go from the site analysed.

I haven’t fully checked it out yet, but it seems to work from information collected via the Alexa toolbar you can download. They claim 10 million people have downloaded the toolbar since 1997. There surfin’ behaviour is recorded in to their database and that’s how they can give you traffic details on your site (details).

Interesting though this may seem, I don’t think it’s very representative. Then again I’m biased because it didn’t have any information on any of my sites.
