I was wondering if anyone could offer up rough estimates that could tell me how many hits a day move you into a given Alexa rank ?
- Top 5,000
- Top 10,000
- Top 50,000
- Top 100,000
- Top 500,000
- Top 1,000,000
I know this is incredibly subjective and thus the broad brush strokes with the number ranges... BUT I've got a site currently ranked just over 1.2M worldwide and over 500k in the USA (http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/fstr.net)
Pretty cool for something hand-built on weekends (pat self on back)
I was applying to an ad-platform and was told that their program doesn't accept webmasters who have an Alexa rank of greater than 100,000. (Time to take back that pat on the back I guess).
I know that my hits in the last 30 days are somewhere on the order of 15,000 uniques and 20,000 pageviews. So I'm wondering how much harder do I have to work to achieve my next "goals"?
I'd like to break into the top million, then re-evaluate from there. It'd be nice to know what those targets translate into (very roughly of course).
I imagine that alexa ranks and tiers become very much exponential as you move up the ranks, but even hearing annecdotal evidence from other webmasters would be really useful to me.
(ie: I have a site that is ranked X and it got Y hits in the last 30 days)
