    Not really. Can be easily faked, has little real value these days. Some advertisers want to see it but unless the traffic is real they won't advertise for long.

    No, Alexa ranks aren't worth considering.

    Yes, alexa ranking is important. One site has low Alexa means the site has visitors and it has some traffic also. So you get a backlink from that sites sure you get benefits.

    Alexa provides you a rough estimated data of your site traffic. Hence it is not precise or accurate. However if you are selling ad spaces on your website or blog, some of the advertisers try to look in to your Alexa ranking before going into a deal. In SEO point of view it is useless.

    Although the Alexa rank may not be 100% accurate, as to a lot of professional traffic estimate tools out there, it still serves as a guideline on estimated traffic to a particular website. If that website has a good amount of traffic, it still bumps the Alexa rank higher - thus you can't say that Alexa's ranking is wrong, etc. Although it may not be able to keep track of the traffic 100%, a high traffic site would definitely command a low Alexa rank, and it can still serve as a useful tool in gauging the overall traffic that site is receiving.

    Alexa doesn't matter! The important metrics that you can check for a blog such as Organic Traffic, TF, CF, DA, PA, OBL are worth!

    No, almost nothing at all.
    It's very easy to manipulate.
    Of course, some, especially noobs, they care about it!

    Not really,it's only a guide.
    It's sometimes handy to compare certain sectors,but,no,it's not an accurate metric.
