incongruity with google search volumes and alexa ranking  Reply with quote  

There is a website that is at the number one position for my target keywords almost every time I search those keywords. It has been this way for at least a year. That keyword is searched 300-400 thousand times per month, and yet alexa ranking has the site not showing in the top 100 000. This makes no sense to me. Shouldn't that site be getting higher traffic than that?

There are many kinds of factors for this result. You know high Pagerank does not mean"High Traffic". And "High Traffic" does not mean 'High Pagerank". There are many websites with low pagerank doing much better than websites with high pagerank.

Also, one of the reasons could be that Alexa only shows data from the users of the website that have the Alexa tool installed. The toolbar is is popular in the US but not that widely used in the rest of the world.
