Alexa, a company owned by Amazon.com, is a search and data site which stores the collected information in an Amazon-like format.
Where does Alexa receive its information? The information is received from the users of the Alexa Toolbar, a browser enhancement.

permits keyword searches from any site on the Web. Although the Alexa Toolbar and Google Toolbar are similar, they have a major

- A website with a Traffic Ranking of 8,000,000 is not receiving much web traffic.
- Conversely, a website Traffic Ranked at 3,000 is visited hundreds of times daily.
Among the nifty graphs displayed on the Alexa Toolbar are Reach, Traffic Rank, and Page Views Graphs. Reach, which is expressed
as a percentage, indicates the number of users visiting your website. Because daily traffic is usually not a good indication of traffic
rank, the traffic rank is based on a three month traffic data of millions of Alexa Toolbar users. Interestingly, the page view measure
also record the number of pages viewed by the Alexa Toolbar users.
Alexa provides the code to allow websites to display these graphs and
statistics on your own website, see example of Traffic Rank Indicator (above left).
