My alexa information for shoemoney.com has always been wrong. Its always showed information for a site that I dont even own. This has recently buged me a lot.

Shows data for Humanic.at

Its weird because I have a site about online marketing and many people
keep bringing this to my attention. What do I need to do ?

I have never had any affiliation with humanic.at

To my suprise they responded really fast with:

Dear Jeremy,

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our automated procedures for determining which hosts are serving the same content may sometimes be incorrect and/or out-of-date due to ownership or content changes.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:

http://info.alexa.com/data/details/editor?type=contact

We appreciate and thank you for your interest in Alexa.

Best regards,
Alexa Internet Customer Service

We will see how it goes……

  1. Wow! I have been trying to get the information for one of my sites updated for… must be 5 years or more. Every time I stop by Alexa, update my info, put the alexa text file of my site but nothing has ever changed. Maybe now that they are charging for their API they have to have information that is accurate.

  2. Yeah, my thinkbling.com website has never shown the correct image even after I emailed them about it.

  3. Actually interesting and special post. I like things such
    as making more homework, developing writing skills, and also related things.

    These kinds of secrets help in being a qualified individual
    on this topic. This page is very helpful to myself because people like you committed time to learning.
    Regularity is that the key. Conversely it is not
    too straightforward, because has been designed to be.
    I am not an expert just like you and plenty of times I feel actually
    giving it up.

  4. Every weekend i used to pay a quick visit this web page, for the reason that i
    want enjoyment, for the reason that this this site conations genuinely pleasant funny material too.
