    if you gamed your alexarank then no. And even if it's legit - NO! There's no minimum for any industry, it all depends on how interesting the site is and how well the niche converts, and how well your design attracts users eye to ads etc etc.

    Alexa rank is one spoke of the wheel of success. As Stationmate says, there are multiple variables to success, good content, great design, hungry niche etc. However, if you have a site that is important to you and potentially the public, having an Alexa rank that is moving toward good recognition can certainly help the process, by itself though, it is of little value.

    Alexa between 35000-50000 is about 200 visitors a day what money you except from that?

    So whats the reason why alexa wont capture this traffic? I have several sites with alexa lower than 50k but traffic is not higher than 200 UV/DAY Also records on Awstats google analytics and statscounter are almost identical so i must admit that alexa score is relevant to 200 UV/day.

    I noticed your in estonia, is the alexa ranking your referring to for estonia or worldwide? For example my site is ranked 347k global and 167k in US.

    Alexa rank isn't a sole factor of traffic, there are other metrics calculated. Not to mention you can't compare revenues with traffic or alexa rank, it's just plain stupid and makes no sense.

    This thread further proves the point that there is 90% mis-information floating around on the web and especially on forums. I guess some people just like to be heard wether they are correct or not.

    Well said LightHouse.

    I've got one site that has an alexa rank of about 60,000 and it gets over 3k uniques daily, and earns me about $20 per day via CPC ads

    I've got another site with alexa of about 30,000 that only gets about 600 uniques per day, but earns me $40+ per day in product sales

    Alexa, like Big G's PR, is basically a useless number to waste time looking at or worrying about. I focus on earnings and actual traffic (from my stats) instead, because they pay the bills for me.
