    This question will be in regards to sites that don't cheat their alexa ranking.

    Does anyone know if there are stats out there that show a correlation between alexa rank and UV a day?

    Alexa rank=10,000 so this means site gets 25,000 UV a day.

    Something along those lines. I know it won't be exact but I would love to see if there is something like that out there. Or if you have a site that does pretty decent on Alexa it would be interesting to hear your Alexa rank and UV a day.

    I have not heard of any such estimation, but I wanted to mention that it probably won't not be a linear scale. I would guess something like a log curve where lower low X values have high Y values and and approach 0 gracefully as X gets larger.

    You might be able to create one by looking a tiers of a handful of known sites.

    Compete gives some of this data and you could break it up into increments of 25K and go from 0-2000000 and look up compete numbers for 1 site in each tier. Plot it on graph paper and manipulate a log equation until it fits the curve... then you can plug any alexa rank into the equation and find where it lands on your curve for the traffic estimation.

    Math isn't all bad you know. ;)
