Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

I'd like to compare the traffic rank for some of the more popular sites in different categories. If I search Alexa for webmasters.stackexchange.com, for example, the only result is all of Stack Exchange. Similarly, if I try to search for answers.yahoo.com I get the results for all of Yahoo!. How do you separate out a subdomain when searching for the traffic rank of a site? I've tried manipulating the Alexa traffic stats URL with no luck.

I don't think you'll be able to get a rank for a subdomain, Alexa groups subdomains together, the only stats visible by subdomain is the percentage of traffic

from Stackexchange.com Site Info on Alexa:

Alexa Subdomain Stats

So you can determine your own subdomain site rank based off % traffic

Thank you. This gave me enough information to come up with a reasonable estimate. – Bill the Lizard Jun 1 '11 at 11:20
Buddy your answer is wrong . Now subdomains are getting different alexa ranks, blogspot.com hosted domains like example : love.blogspot.in has different alexa rank and hubpages subdomain are also getting different alexa rank. – user45082 Sep 28 '14 at 12:22
