These are links to traffic ranks for web sites.

I have thrown my marsjupiter.com site in, as I have spent a long time working on it, and it is actually doing well as sites go, but downsizer.net is kicking butt!

If anyone fails to be impressed by these figures, they can expect long PMs explaining just how damn good they are

BTW all the links will say marsjupiter, but the figures are for the relative sites.

They look nice, but I don't have any idea what they mean.
We certainly 'feel' busy to me.

basically it is saying that we are on tordays figures the 169,000th most popular web site in the world. A figure that might not sound too great, hence the need to compare to other sites. Trust me that is is a remarkably good figure

That sounds pretty good. So, any idea how many we're 169000th out of?
I'm serious about it sounding good, there must be millions.

A once popular forum I am admin of, had an acrimoneous split into two forums, both of which are surviving:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0001K7HEG/ref=alx_dp_tr_1/102-8794815-7225764?v=glance&vi=traffic&url=http://www.team-ninja.com/

at 2,6000,000 or so

and the side i was not on:

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0001K7HEG/ref=alx_dp_tr_1/102-8794815-7225764?v=glance&vi=traffic&url=http://www.ninjamicros.com/

4 millionth!

And as I said both of these forums are struggling a bit, but surviving.

How do you find out these figures, do you have to be registered somewhere, or can anyone look.

It is a free service, you go through a registration process, that will tie the service to a particular web site, but you can as you can see by looking at the links, be sneaky and see any sites rank

Flip that's brilliant. Are you discounting the 4 billion porn sites (so I've been told) out there when compiling this?

I think it is literally all web sites, and there are a f&*ing lot of them and a lot of f^&ing web sites

Getting into the top 100,000 as RC seems to be doing on the back of the current RC series, is a big achievement for a web site. For us to show that kind of figure in 4 weeks is worthy of celebration. Actually the figures are meant to waver in accuracy below the 100,000 mark dues to the method of collection, so we might find we just got a bit lucky, but all the same :8

Without getting too technical, how much does it cost, and how do you get your site up in the rankings.

Totally free service I must get it set up for this site and I will post the registration link then.

Getting sites up the rankings, I could go on forever, but at the end of the day it is a combination of being a site people want, and backing that up with a lot of technical tricks and marketing drive. We have I think the ability to do well on all of these

So it's not purely on hits?

Now this is bizarre. type in 'oldmillcottage' on yahoo and the no.1 site is mine.

With 945 hits in a year????

They can only record hits by people with their toolbar installed.

Hence if you have a small userbase, but all using their toolbar you can rank remarkably highly. I have a friend who was developing his web site and had the toolbar, and it seemed to be doing remarkably well

I don't use the Alexa toolbar as I wan't to know how my sites are really doing.

You can sign up for a graphic to display on your site (as I have on downsizer now) at http://www.alexa.com/

Well that's sounding quite good (I think)
