ALEXA: A while back, I wrote: “Various readers complain about Henke’s reliance on ratings. That’s a fair criticism, to a degree — the numbers are based on the rather thin network of people who’ve downloaded the Alexa toolbar to their browsers. If even a few dozen InstaPundit readers added the Alexa toolbar it would probably produce a noticeable upswing in the rankings of InstaPundit and the blogs I link to.” I don’t know how many people did this — I got emails from a few — but since then InstaPundit has gone up from 38,000+ to 19,000+, roughly doubling its Alexa position. This may demonstrate that Alexa is iffy, but thanks for boosting my ranking in the process of proving it!
