Any application that links to or displays information about web sites can be enhanced with data from the Alexa Web Information Service. What you can do is only limited by your imagination; some ideas include:
The list of top web sites is available through the Alexa Top Sites web service.
Alexa Internet uses crawling, archiving, categorizing, and data mining techniques to build the Related Links lists for millions of web URLs. One technique used is to analyze links on the crawled pages to find related sites. The day-to-day use of the Alexa service also helps build and refine the data. By looking at high-level trends within the millions of URL “paths” created by Alexa users, we can deduce relationships between web sites. For example, if many users go directly from site A to site B, the two sites are likely to be related.Please note that since the relationships between sites are based on strength, Related Links lists are not necessarily balanced. Site A may appear in the list for Site B, but Site B may not be in the list for Site A. Generally, this happens when the number of sites with strong relationships is greater than ten, or when sites do not have similar enough content.
In the URL Information action, the traffic data is updated daily. Most other information in the URL Information, are updated monthly.
No. The Browse Category action only offers a browse feature. For any given browse node (category), the service responds with subcategories, related categories, top sites within that category, and more.
The Sites Linking In action returns a list of web sites linking to a given web site. Within each domain linking into the web site, only a single link – the one with the highest page-level traffic – is returned. The data is updated monthly.
