We use the Alexa ranking scheme throughout the organization. Most importantly when delivering the website we have to make sure it matches the standards. Additionally, it helps to guess and analyze the page rank of the website which is live and on production. Web analytics and SEO is a major use case of Alexa in our org. We fetch data and other web scraping tasks using top Alexa rank pages.

Best in Industry standard for website ranking. Whatever website you go to, whatever website traffic you generate, one must visit Alexa ranking for all the websites they visit. One must not get confused with Amazon Alexa which is a virtual assistant. We use Alexa mostly for tags and marketing tactics for web analytics.

Alexa is well suited for marketers, SEO practitioners,bBusiness growth development. Toolbars, On Page SEO management, keyword and tag management are some of the best features which could help you grow business. Alexa ranking sometimes gives irrelevant tags and keywords. There are chances where you find a keyword suggestion on Alexa and the same keyword would bring no profit on other websites.

We are in the preparation phase to launch different ad campaigns and expand our business to the next level. Learning about Alexa is one of the steps to prepare for our goals. We want to create a meditation mobile app serving the company's mission with Alexa. However, right now, our main focus is to increase traffic to our website and build a strong reputation before officially using Alexa. But it is on the list.
- It is easy to navigate through Amazon Developer
- Even for a non coder, it is very thorough and easy to go through setting up steps
- Testing for Alexa is also awesome since you can use simulated websites for it instead of buying the actual device
- Although it is easy to build an Alexa skill, in the end there is still some Java script coding involved. More instruction on that could help users finish building a skill. I had to spend a day looking up what things are for the final step. It was a bit time consuming

The person could conveniently find their group of customers that would be in need of their service. Technology students who want to excel in building phone application, Alexa would be a good practice.

Our organization used Alexa to try and identify website traffic trends so we could better understand who was coming to our website, where they were going, how long they were staying and what content resonated most. Our goal was to use the data to be able to provide better content for our users.

If you are looking to begin an initial dive into website competitive analysis on a relatively low budget, then Alexa is a good option. They have a number of different options, so you can pick the plan that is right for you depending if you want to focus only on basic web traffic analytics or focus more on SEO.

Alexa is used by all employees in our company to track metrics on various media websites. It helps us build comprehensive real-time and monthly reports for our clients using accurate analytics/data that support our efforts in media relations and other areas of PR. With the numbers Alexa provides we can better track progress, challenges, opportunities, and more.
- It sources website analytics for most websites we're interested in tracking.
- Each website's dashboard is easy to understand and pull numbers from.
- We can get very nitty gritty with the numbers we're pulling or keep it simple by just pulling basic website visitor stats.
- Not all websites are included, and there isn't always a rhyme or reason for who is or isn't in Alexa.
- It would be great to have more subset URLs tracked vs. only the main website URL. This could really help companies track more direct correlation between numbers and work being done.

Alexa is perfect for PR agencies tracking analytics for their client reporting -- especially if media relations is a core competency for them. We use Alexa almost exclusively for our media relations efforts and showing the reach of our media coverage, the potential of a media opportunity, and more to our clients.
