Alexa Ranking Dramatic Shift

It was 8:30am in the morning 17th April 2008(to the States it might be 8:30pm 16th April) and I logged in into my Personal Computer. Guessed what, I was shocked to see my Alexa Ranking dropped from 700k to 2 million ++. Oh my, what is happening??

I think that Alexa has started to change their ranking for webs and blogs alike. I see a sudden dramatic change to the alexa ranking that I was trying to search for an answer on the world wide web. Seems so far not a tid bit mention about it.

Either they have gone the google ranking way and decided to modify and enhance their codes. Or they perhaps had some glitch in their code and debugging it. Well, imagine from 700k to 2 million drop is a lot. I would go for the new codes that they are implementing. Let’s wait for more news from Alexa before we confirm it yeah.

Slight Update : Looks like it was announced on Alexa Blog with the new Alexa Ranking system.

Some excerpts from the site….

Looks like we can look forward to a new style of rank for Alexa Rank
