    I am ranking for many longtail keywords which do not have any competition

    google external keyword tools report that
    each of these are being searched monthly from 140 -800+ times a month...

    in short keywords I am ranking are on 1st - 4th position on the first page or in some 6/7 times on first page. total monthly searches would be 7000+ for these keywords

    but alexa reports
    global rank 2,300,000+
    backlinks 200+


    while backlinks which exists are many more

    what should i understand from this.

    is alexa wrong.. or there is some problem with my seo...

    this site has mixture of duplicate and original content and many pages are indexed and new pages with original or duplicate content get indexed quickly...


    but conversions are low...
    bounce rate is 50%

    do you guys trust google external tool reporting?

    Alexa's backlinks are inacccurate, as with any tools. That depends on the depth of their database.

    As to Alexa ranking, what do you expect? I have a site with more than 400.000 page views per month but still ranks lower than 1 million.

    Actually opal, it may be that your friend not link site on relevant site, thus there is no visitors. But you can suggest him for video promotion also. it also create much lead. perhaps it will help.
