Alexa Web Search - Toolbar Quick Tour
Came across this toolbar while doing some search for a project at workplace. Proved to be very helpful in what I intended to do.
The particularly interesting thing, which is the only feature on which it would score over Google Toolbar, is the Site Info thing. It gives quite a bit of info about the traffic behaviour on the open website, ranging from how many people visit the site, to what do they do once they are here. Also it lists all the websites which link in to the given page with their given rankings based on the traffic over the day/week/3 months. Yahoo is number 1, while Google is way behind from the top spot.
On the same lines, found out more about the Google's PageRank system here - Uncovering Google's PageRank System. Nice read if you are an illiterate in these matters.
PS: This is my first non-test post from BlogThis!
PS: (Deja-vu!) The title to the entry is a stolen one, and has appeared on a lot of blogs I visit. But then, that's what it is - random browsing.
