It’s really a pity.
A few days ago, I was doing some research for a story about Medium.
For my analysis, I wanted to look at the ranking of Medium in regard to web traffic — the so-called Alexa ranking.
It offers global rankings and web traffic data on over 30 million websites.
It’s the most popular name in the web-ranking world.
Unfortunately, I found out that it was shut down by Amazon on May 1, 2022.
In their announcement post they stated:
Twenty-five years ago, we founded Alexa Internet. After two decades of helping you find, reach, and convert your digital audience, we’ve made the difficult decision to retire Alexa.com on May 1, 2022.
The Internet tracking website Alexa.com used to be one of the most trusted sources of website ranking, content, and keyword research.
It’s a pity for marketers and anyone interested in website traffic data.
