Alexa Web Search -- For Webmasters

Alexa Web Search -- For Webmasters: "There are a few reasons that Alexa may not have visited your site. Perhaps your site is new or we haven't discovered any links on the web that lead to your site. Or perhaps we haven't had any Alexa users visit your site. It is also possible that your web site administrator has disallowed crawlers from visiting your site - please read the information about robots.txt that we have provided above.
In any event, simply by visiting your site with the Alexa Toolbar open, Alexa will learn of your site and add it to our list of sites to visit, thus ensuring your inclusion in the Alexa service and in the Alexa archive.
If you are the type of person who won't be satisfied until you get to click a button that says 'Crawl My Site,' then we have just the form for you. Simply type your site's web address into the box below, and then click the button. Alexa will include your site in the next crawl of the web, usually within 8 weeks of submission."

The journey of Alexa- The Web Information Company has never been a smooth one. Alexa that has been in the scenario almost from the start of the Web had seen immense growth and popularity and then a pretty morbid phase. However, it went back to the drawing board and sketched out new ways to pull back the company to steadiness. Several new innovations and changes have been made to Alexa since the time of its inception partly to stay in sync with the changing times and demands and partly to combat its competitors. As for example, till some time back the popularity of various websites was measured by the data collected from the users of the Alexa toolbar. However, the company went for a change in April 2008. Today other factors, apart from the Alexa toolbar, are also taken into account to determine the popularity and traffic of a given website. However, the point to ponder is that the “other sources” that are determinant of a websites Alexa rankings are not clearly cut out. They are vague and misty. Nevertheless, Alexa is still one of the most credible and powerful players of the web.
