      Alexa is a company that operates a website providing information on web traffic to other websites. It gives sites a rank based on tracking information of users of its toolbar (Alexa toolbar). As it only can monitor stats from users of the alexa toolbar there is a lot of controversy over whether the stats are a true representation of a site's popularity.

          Very debateable.

          I would personally suggest that it's roughly on a par with licking your finger and holding it up in the air in order to determine wind-speed.

          That is to say, it's broadly correct, and gives accurate enough information to determine rough trends. But it's probably not accurate once you get down to resolutions of 10,000 or less (actually, perhaps 100,000 or less).

            It is accurate (owned by Amazon), thing is it does not track sites which do not have very high volume. If you are interested in site statistics for your own site have a look at google analytics.
