    Hey, BHW members, I have issue. My websites are about 2-3months old, I am getting some visitors, but why Alexa's rank doesn't appear on webs?

    Alexa is very slow to update website stats. Verify that your site is added on Alexa by submitting it and verify the property.
    You can also use their banner that show stats on your website.

    Because you're obviously receiving traffic from users that do not have the Alexa Toolbar installed on their browser. Keep in mind that Alexa only counts visitors to your site from those who have their toolbar installed.

    I hope this will be the reason for your issue. Also you don't have to worry about alexa rank.

    Thanks,
    Bart

    Alexa Ranking Takes Longer than usual to show up your ranking

    All the above is true. On another note, what exactly do you want to do with Alexa rank. I've always wondered what purpose it has other than to scare a marketing manager somewhere.

    It doesn't. It's kinda like PageRank - although even less meaningful metric. Unless one is either trying to sell the site, or sell links from the site, neither Alexa rank nor PR means anything.

    And why i have a website with verified ownership by alexa and in alexa dashboard i can see basically the same amount of visitors i get on my website? As you know, if you verify ownership of your site on alexa, you can see how many visits you get daily on alexa dashboard. And when i checked who visits my website, i can see only 1-2 people with alexa toolbar, and all the rest has no alexa toolbar at all. Can you explain that?

    Also i can check who have a toolbar and who's not, not on alexa, i have other stats tracing methods.
