Alexa Updates Numbers: Should We Care?

Back in "the day," Alexa was a very talked about tool for checking the traffic data for a third party site. These days, people know to take Alexa's data with a grain of salt. Alexa data can be easily spoofed and tampered with, at least - that is what I am told, so just be careful when using it.

That being said, DigitalPoint Forums has a large discussion on Alexa. They claim it has just updated their numbers.

Scanning the thread, it seems like most webmasters are happy with the new results. One said:

Both of my sites had a massive 1000% change as of the Alexa update.

Again, be careful when using this data.
