Overall Satisfaction with Alexa

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.
  • It helps us show the ROI and reach of our work. Since implementing Alexa into our tracking and reporting, along with other tools, we've seen greater retention with our clients b/c we are able to better show the reach and results of our labor.
  • Compete
We used to use Compete until it changed what it does entirely. Alexa was the best option after we did research. It is more granular in the numbers it provides too, which is good for what we do.
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.
