Learn about your site's popularity through Alexa.com

If you want to understand how your site racks up against other sites in your country or against all Internet sites then you’ll want to head on over to Alexa.com.

This web property, owned by Amazon, keeps track of each website gathering intelligence about the top web sites on the web. To use the site simply type in the URL of your web site in the search bar and Alexa spits out a wealth of stats on your site.

This is gleaned primarily from users of the Alexa toolbar, but also the company says, from other unnamed sources.

The data you want to look at is your site rank on the Internet and also in your country if you have geographically relevant content.

Sites linking in to your site shows its popularity (and likelihood of search engine love). If you are in the top 100,000 sites you’ll see traffic flow, audience snapshot, search queries ad various other useful information.

As you an see we didn’t do very well, but this is typical when a site is new. If you check Alexa.com today against the image captured in this post you’ll see we are coming along quite nicely since Feb 2012.
