Its weird because I have a site about online marketing and many people

Thank you for contacting Alexa Internet. Regarding the listing of the sites you mentioned:
When Alexa crawls the Web, it merges together sites which we think have the same content. When we merge two or more sites, we combine their traffic to form one ranking and list them under the domain with the most traffic. With tens of millions of domains on the Internet, our automated procedures for determining which hosts are serving the same content may sometimes be incorrect and/or out-of-date due to ownership or content changes.
We will separate the sites during our next update of the service. After we have separated the sites in 1-2 weeks, you can submit contact information for your site at:
We appreciate and thank you for your interest in Alexa.

We will see how it goes……
