Analyzing a Website for Links Traffic

    I just found out about Alexa and saw it detailed the links to the website. It was fascinating to see that Ask had half of the incoming links as HubPages yet the last Google Panda update had Ask higher in the search engine than HP - hopefully the Google Gurus will correct this mishap.

    In regards to analyzing a website, other than Alexa, what other tools, websites can be used freely to analyze a website?

      I find SEOquake to be really helpful.  It has google, yahoo, alexa and more.  Try it out and see if this is what you're looking for.  Hope this helps!

    Alexa Stats are absolute JUNK.  They are manipulated and mean nothing.

    NOBODY in the "REAL WORLD" uses Alexa.  Only idiotic spammers who think that running up totals artificially will somehow help them do it.

    Seriously.  Ask the next 100 Real World people you meet to name 3 search engines.

    If they can do it, I'd bet less than 1% would come up with Alexa.

    The Real World uses Google and Yahoo... and to a lesser extend AOL and Bing in the United States.
