    hey guys.. I'm so confused :?

    Here is this site: www.phing.com
    Based on G analytics data the traffic is 4k+ a day /// Google provides 47% of the traffic (stats: http://www.seethestats.com/site/phing.com)

    But Alexa ranks this website #194.899 in the world????

    What am I missing here?

    I went little bit deeper to check the number of actual ads => proof of an active classifieds website, and here you go (it covers only Computers & Electronics category):

    please shed some light here as I feel I'm really missing some huge piece of info :?

    tx

    p.s. this isn't my site - I'm investigating my distant competitors ;)

    well, the only explanation I have is:

    1) Partly Alexas ranking system depends from its toolbar usage.
    2) Every user who uses Alexa toolbar contributes information to Alexa
    2) This site isn't getting users that have an Alexa toolbar

    ... still, it looks really strange :?
