jkOnTheRun on Alexa


jkOnTheRun is a TypePad blog which means it is on the blogs.com network.  I don’t know how many blogs there are total on TypePad but from what I’ve seen it’s a whole lot of blogs.  I was messing around on Alexa today trying to see if I could get the Alexa ranking for jkOTR.  I wasn’t able to get it since Alexa seems to lump all blogs on blogs.com into one traffic number but I did find something that blew me away.  According to Alexa’s numbers (and I have no idea how accurate they are) jkOTR is the fifth most visited site on all of blogs.com!  It also shows jkOTR traffic to account for 2% of all blogs.com traffic.  Wow!  This just blows my mind (not hard to do) so I’m going to go rest now.  Am I interpreting this correctly?




Kay, I agree that Alexa figures are suspect but the point is I think the relative numbers within Alexa are pretty accurate. The statistics they show for blogs.com are so huge that they have some basis in fact and I suspect are pretty representative of the traffic within the blogs.com domain. At least, I hope so. :)


Dont want to take away your joy but I dont trust Alexa much. Plus, as far as I remember – the Alexa figures are based on users who are using IE and have Alexa disabled – which I dont for example :)

but still – being listed is good
