    I have seen Alexa ranking of Hubpages drop from 174 to 190 after the Google Algo Changes i.e. in about one and half months. Does Alexa ranking hold any significance or it is not that important.

      Just to add the latest Alexa ranking of Hubpages has dropped further and now stands at 192. Is this alarming?

      Though alexa ranking is not correct, but it is a very good indicator to get an idea about traffic of a site in comparison to other sites.I've seen in my personal site that its ranking goes up and down according to the rise and fall of traffic.Alexa rank 192 is not alarming at all, I think hubpages ranking will bounce back.

        I have to disagree with you here. I managed a website for several years whose main competitor had an Alexa ranking much, much higher than ours, but about one-half the traffic (and earnings).

    It's a flag in the wind at best. I wouldn't pay too much attention to it.

      Thanks for your response Ironher. Hubpages Ranking has dropped almost 20 places since the Google changes back in Feb so thought should share and discuss on i with fellow hubbers.

    Good question, Sid Candid, very relevant. Irohner is right, I think, even though there may be some loss of prestige.

    Alexa is jsut an indicator, it is not even an accurate indicator since it for the most part only tracks people using the Alexa Toolbar.

    This means that tech sites are favoured heavily by the alexa rankings system.

    I think it is important indicator for the traffic to any sites. Further better alexa ranking means google more frequently visit to the site.
