    Why alexa Rating differs?

    I just checked one of my blogs alexa Rating in the alexa toolbar and alexa site (alexa/siteinfo). It was showing two different ranks. Do you have any similar problems for your sites? Why this is so? How it is happening. There is a difference of 20000 in between the two Ratings..

    Strange, it should be the same. Maybe the one on the web is still displaying the cached results?

    The Alexa website is usually most-updated, so I guess the toolbar is updated later than the website itself. Or like badmash says, maybe they're displaying different types of rank...

    Greetz!

    The data for the toolbar is most probably cached to save on CPU/ Server load.

    im still unsure what alexa ranking mean.
    Alexa ranking shows how popular a site is. Its calculated by how many visits a site has daily by those who have the Alexa Toolbar installed.

    Here is the Rank of Netbuilders
    The lower the rank the Better
    (But also note that webmaster forums usually have a higher rank since alot of webmasters use the toolbar. Creating a dubious ranking)
