Good morning, there is more in the world than just the US

29.03.2005 - 00:04 / filled under default

When will they ever learn? Just came across a post in an Adsense Forum:

There posts somebody:

I have since some month 2000 visitors a day and 1.3 up to 5% click rate. Suddenly I was fired from Google AdSense. Invalid clicks. But I am complete innocent.

In this case, I do not need all the log files from Google to tell him, that he is a liar.

Just the Alexa toolbar is enough.
Yeah right. Everybody on the world - especially Germans - install the Alexa Toolbar.

Just a little example: My main blog in german is beissholz.de and the Alexa ranking does tell me:
Traffic Rank for beissholz.de: 4,103,032
Which seems really unimportant. But this blog is much better:
Traffic Rank for useful-sounds.de: 555,220
Fact is: beisholz has six times the traffic / subscribers this blog has. But because this blog is in english and Alexa is very spread in the US, it has a much better standing in 'ranking'.

So much for a proof in using Alexa ranking in a different country ...
