    How Does Alexa Track Traffic – Do They Really Have a Grasp of Your

    #

    How Does Alexa Track Traffic Do They Really Have a Grasp of Your Traffic?

    There is a lot of misinformation floating around the Internet in regards to how Alexa tracks traffic, how Alexa rankings work and how they impact your SEO rankings (or don t). I want to add some clarity to this situation so within this upcoming thread I am going to be walking you through Alexa, how it works, and help you decide whether or not it serves any importance towards your online campaigns and success.

    So if you are ready, I am going to get right into the inner workings of Alexa.

    How do Alexa Rankings Work?

    Alexa rankings display several metrics. These include Alexa traffic rank, Traffic Rank in US, Sites Linking in, and, within their charts, you can see the different fields that you can graph out your website history (see example chart below)

    Track network traffic

    BIG QUESTION: But where does Alexa get their data from and is it reliable?

    Alexa gets their rankings from the Alexa Toolbar, which people install into their browsers and it basically tracks their activity around the Internet, the websites they visit, and how often they visit.

    This is where they get most of their data from, so they really do have a minute set of data to work with as only a small fraction of people actually have the Alexa toolbar installed (guestimates say around 15-20 million downloads many of these no longer active), with a good deal of these being people that are Internet marketers who want to track their Alexa rankings.

    Along with that, they claim to get data from other unknown sources as well (yeah ).

    Another concern is the fact that the toolbar is considered to be adware by MacAfee while Symantec another major anti-virus program considers the toolbar trackware because of the nature of how it works (it tracks and stores all of your web activities). If you have it installed, you can best bet that all of your activities are being tracked and the data you are using it for really is deemed quite useless, because it is not real traffic data.

    How to Increase Your Alexa Ranking?

    If you wanted to game Alexa, it is actually quite easy (I will get to that).

    But first, the most obvious way would be to get more website traffic to increase your Alexa rankings right?

    Wrong. More traffic does not equate to higher traffic rankings in Alexa. In fact, in late 2012 I personally ran some tests and comparisons between two completely independent websites just for peace of mind and to validate all of my assumptions about Alexa over the years (that it was more of a gag site than anything).

    In my test, Website A was getting 20,000+ unique visitors per day, and Website B was getting just over 1,000+ uniques per day. In other words Website A was getting 20 times the traffic of Website B, yet the Alexa rank had Website B getting double the traffic within their reporting.

    Completely bogus. Alexa ranking data is completely bogus. The obvious, but ineffective way to get higher Alexa rankings would be to get more traffic to your website but this is simply not the case. The correct way to get higher Alexa rankings is to get more people to visit your website that have the Alexa toolbar installed.

    I am not going to go into details, but based on my first point there are very few data triggers that Alexa has to work off of that are not publicly available. They have no access to ACTUAL website data (only the owner of a website has access to actual traffic stats).

    The traffic data they use is based on their toolbar, so naturally the more people that visit your site that have the toolbar installed will improve your Alexa rank (hint, hint).

    How to Check Alexa Rank?

    Many of you are probably wondering where to go to find out your Alexa rank. You can actually do this directly through their website, or you can install their adware toolbar (not recommended).

    Track network traffic

    Again, take your ranking with a grain of salt. It won t benefit you in any way knowing your Alexa, nor will it be a sound indicator of how your website ranks compared to others out there. The reason. They DO NOT have this data!

    If you are interested in finding out where your website ranks in Google, an important metric when determining your SEO effectiveness there are tools that can scan Google s search results and tell you where you are ranked (what page you are on) under specific keywords.

    If you want to find out what page you are ranked on in Google, I recommend that you use Jaaxy.com for this.

    Alexa Ranking Package, Is it Worth It?

    On the Alexa website you will notice there are many different services they are attempting to sell you. You will see something similar to this within the Alexa sidebar when you are on their site

    Track network traffic

    I also have personally tried these services (Get Certified Metrics) for testing purposes and can honestly tell you that you are buying into an empty offer.

    The Get Certified Metrics is a service where you have to pay to give Alexa your accurate data. Shouldn t they be paying you for this? You will see absolutely no value from doing this and if you are even remotely interested in taking advantage of this, please do save your money.

    Does Alexa Rank Have Anything to Do With SEO?

    Recently it appears that many folks have been vastly misinformed as to how Alexa works and what the purpose of Alexa is. There are folks going around the Internet touting an Alexa score as some sort of indicator as to how well a website ranks in Google or how it reflects website success.

    However, Alexa rank has no correlation to SEO or how well a site gets indexed. So if someone tells you that Alexa means something and tout it as a reason to join their service, you may want to head the other way.

    Secondly, Alexa offers Web Analytics toolkits for $149 per month. This service is a complete redundancy if you have Google Analytics (which is free) and in fact, the Alexa Advanced Plan will offer you inferior data to that you can get with Analytics and Webmaster Tools, both free services offer by Google.

    Track network traffic

    So Alexa will not efficiently or accurately track your traffic and they will not be able to serve as any sort of indicator in respect to SEO. If you want to get SEO help, the best thing you can do is to learn about it yourself and there are services out there that can help you out with this. If you want to get help with your rankings in Google, you can get up and running know with some REAL education. Get rolling here!

    I hope this has added some clarity to the whole Alexasphere and if you do have anything in addition to add, any Alexa experiences or any questions about any of this content, drop me a note below and I will be more than happy to discuss.

    What is network functions virtualization (NFV)? Definition from #network #function #virtualization

    #

    network functions virtualization (NFV)

    Network functions virtualization (NFV) is an initiative to virtualize the network services that are now being carried out by proprietary. dedicated hardware. If successful, NFV will decrease the amount of proprietary hardware that’s needed to launch and operate network services.

    SD-WAN Buyer’s Guide: What to Know Before You Buy

    In this two-part guide, analyst Lee Doyle reveals the top 7 SD-WAN trends to watch for this year, and our editors compare 13 leading SD-WAN products in one handy infographic to help guide your purchasing decision.

    By submitting your personal information, you agree that TechTarget and its partners may contact you regarding relevant content, products and special offers.

    You also agree that your personal information may be transferred and processed in the United States, and that you have read and agree to the Terms of Use and the Privacy Policy .

    The goal of NFV is to decouple network functions from dedicated hardware devices and allow network services that are now being carried out by routers. firewalls. load balancers and other dedicated hardware devices to be hosted on virtual machines (VMs ). Once the network functions are under the control of a hypervisor. the services that once require dedicated hardware can be performed on standard x86 servers.

    This capability is important because it means that network administrators will no longer need to purchase dedicated hardware devices in order to build a service chain. Because server capacity will be able to be added through software, there will be no need for network administrators to overprovision their data centers which will reduce both capital expenses (CAPex ) and operating expenses (OPex ). If an application running on a VM required more bandwidth, for example, the administrator could move the VM to another physical server or provision another virtual machine on the original server to take part of the load. Having this flexibility will allow an IT department to respond in a more agile manner to changing business goals and network service demands.

    NFV is different from software-defined networking (SDN) but is complementary to it; when SDN runs on the NFV infrastructure, the SDN forwards the data packets from one network device to another while the network routing (control) functions run on a virtual machine in, for example, a rack mount server. The NFV concept, which was presented by a group of network service providers at the Software Defined Network and OpenFlow World Congress in October 2012, is being developed by the ETSI Industry Specification Group (ISG) for Network Functions Virtualization.

    VPN – virtual private network

    Related Terms

    A v irtual p rivate n etwork (VPN ) is a network that is constructed using public wires usually the Internet to connect remote users or regional offices to a company’s private, internal network.

    Privacy, Security and Encryption

    A VPN secures the private network, using encryption and other security mechanisms to ensure that only authorized users can access the network and that the data cannot be intercepted. This type of network is designed to provides a secure, encrypted tunnel in which to transmit the data between the remote user and the company network.

    The information transmitted between the two locations via the encrypted tunnel cannot be read by anyone else because the system contains several elements to secure both the company’s private network and the outside network through which the remote user connects through.

    The first step to security is usually a firewall between the client and the host server, requiring the remote user to establish an authenticated connection with the firewall. Encryption is also an important component of a secure VPN. Encryption works by having all data sent from one computer encrypted in such a way that only the computer it is sending to can decrypt the data.

    Main Network Protocols

    There are three main network protocols for use with VPN tunnels. These protocols are generally incompatible with each other. They include the following:

    A set of protocols developed by the IETF to support secure exchange of packets at the IP layer. IPsec has been deployed widely to implement VPNs. IPsec supports two encryption modes: transport and tunnel.

    The Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol is a technology for creating VPNs, developed jointly by Microsoft, U.S. Robotics and several remote access vendor companies, known collectively as the PPTP Forum.

    Layer Two (2) Tunneling Protocol is an extension to the PPP protocol that enables ISPs to operate Virtual Private Networks (VPNs).

    Consumer Versus Corporate Services

    Consumers use a private VPN service, also known as a VPN tunnel. to protect their online activity and identity. By using an anonymous VPN service, a user’s Internet traffic and data remain encrypted. which prevents eavesdroppers from sniffing Internet activity. VPN services are especially useful when accessing public Wi-Fi hotspots because the public wireless services might not be secure. In addition to public Wi-Fi security, a private VPN service also provides consumers with uncensored Internet access and can help prevent data theft and unblock websites.

    Companies and organizations will typically use a VPN to communicate confidentially over a public network and to send voice, video or data. It is also an excellent option for remote workers and organizations with global offices and partners to share data in a private manner.

    Virtual private dial-up network (VPDN) Explained

    One of the most common types of VPNs used by businesses is called a virtual private dial-up network (VPDN ). A VPDN is a user-to-LAN connection, where remote users need to connect to the company LAN. Another type of VPN is commonly called a site-to-site VPN. Here the company would invest in dedicated hardware to connect multiple sites to their LAN though a public network, usually the Internet.

    IP “Classful” Addressing Overview and Address Classes
    (Page 1 of 2)

    When the first precursor of the Internet was developed, some of the requirements of the internetwork, both present and future, were quickly realized. The Internet would start small but eventually grow. It would be shared by many organizations. Since it is necessary for all IP addresses on the internetwork to be unique, a system had to be created for dividing up the available addresses and share them amongst those organizations. A central authority had to be established for this purpose, and a scheme developed for it to effectively allocate addresses.

    The developers of IP recognized that organizations come in different sizes and would therefore need varying numbers of IP addresses on the Internet. They devised a system whereby the IP address space would be divided into classes. each of which contained a portion of the total addresses and were dedicated to specific uses. Some would be devoted to large networks on the Internet, while others would be for smaller organizations, and still others reserved for special purposes.

    Since this was the original system, it had no name; it was just the IP addressing system. Today, in reference to its use of classes, it is called the classful addressing scheme, to differentiate it from the newer classless scheme. As I said at the end of the introduction to this section. classful isn’t really a word, but it’s what everyone uses.

    IP Address Classes

    There are five classes in the classful system, which are given letters A through E. Table 43 provides some general information about the classes, their intended uses and other general characteristics about them:

    Table 43: IP Address Classes and Class Characteristics and Uses

    IP Address Class

    Reserved for experimental use .

    Looking at this table (and at Figure 60 ) you can see that the first three, classes A, B and C, comprise most of the total address space (7/8ths of it). These are the classes used for unicast IP addressing, which means for messages sent to a single network interface. (The blocks also include associated broadcast addresses for these networks.) This is what we usually consider normal IP addressing. You can think of classes A, B and C as the papa bear , mama bear and baby bear of traditional IP addressing. They allow the Internet to provide addressing for a small number of very large networks, a moderate number of medium-sized organizations, and a large number of smaller companies. This approximately reflects the distribution of organization sizes, approximately, in the real world, though the large gulf in the maximum number of hosts allowed for each address class leads to inflexibility and problems.

    As you can see, the classes differ in the place where the dividing line is drawn between the network ID and the host ID portions of the addresses they contain. However, in each case the division is made on octet boundaries: in classful addressing, the division does not occur within an octet.

    Figure 60: Division of IPv4 Address Space Into Classes

    (I don t really need to explain this one, do I? J )

    Classes D and E are special to the point where many people don’t even realize they exist. Class D is used for IP multicasting. while class E was reserved for experimental use . I discuss IP multicast addressing later in this section.

    President Donald Trump is right that DACA was never intended to be a permanent fix for immigrant young people. Congress has a chance to right the president’s wrong on this issue, and senators and representatives from Kansas and Missouri should be part of the solution.
