Alexa is the most biased traffic indicator around...it's retarded that some sights actually use it to determine which sites to give review products to. I understand they need to have some sort of standard, but using Alexa is just wrong. I remember getting denied over at HCW by a manufacturer because we weren't sub 50,000. Got about 5 people to install it and now we're at 10,000....anyway, I have it running right now so one more hit for your guys 8)

Thanks, and I agree with the retarded part. They should look at the site before deciding based solely on numbers.

Yes, it's very frustrating for we smaller sites. It's also very expensive to continually purchase products to review. Luckily, we are starting to build some contacts for sample review material and an get some items on loan. Love your occupation, btw.

lol, thanks, I had to go and check to see what I put in there :P

A good idea sample wise might be to see if you can make contacts with other online sites in your area. I know HCW used to share samples with a couple other sites in the early days. Vendors are more willing to send something out if it'll get reviewed by two or three different writers.

Good point, that would definitely make it easier on the pocketbook. It would also be good, overall, for our readers. I have about 5-6 sites that I frequent where I trust the reviews. We sometimes review the same products and generally come up with comparable conclusions. Styles may differ, but the ratings are about the same. That's why I go there, I know they are truthful. :D

Yeah, right now I'm down to about four sites including HCW and here. I lost a lot of respect for a lot of people after reading some KT400a reviews

I agree that Alexa ratings are a little retarted.. but right now.. its what might get our leg through the door with our foot. It would be great if some of our readers would install the toolbar. to help with our rating a little.

Back on the Alexa wagon again. I didn't think it would matter anymore until I requested hardware from an unnamed manufacturer and they denied us because of our alexa rating. So... I installed the stupid toolbar again.

Alexa is soooooo terrible. I have a site that continues to grow, but the ranking is plummeting. At one time, well before the site was popular, the Alexa rank was around 15,000... and in no way was it justifiable. Now, traffic has gone up perhaps 50x what it was then, and then rank is down in the 50,000 range.

If you get a dozen or so regulars to install it, you can bump your ranking easily... And although I do hate it, I use it since I know so many marketing pinheads out there trust it for deciding what sites are worth sending things too.

This may sound like cheating... but I installed alexa on IE and only use IE for COD. Everything else gets Firefox.
