Thank You for Decades of Insight
On January 7th, 2022, I wrote a post thanking Alexa for many years of awesome service of providing valuable stats to web designers.
In that same post, I shared that Alexa.com would be discontinuing its service on May 1st.
When I wrote that post back in January, I thought it might be fun to track my daily Alexa ranking for global and the US.
The End of Alexa.com
Alexa Internet, Inc. is an American web traffic analysis company based in San Francisco. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Amazon.
On Wednesday, December 8, 2021, Amazon announced the cessation of its website ranking and competitive analysis service, which has been available to the public for more than 25 years. Alexa service will discontinue as of May 1, 2022.
Today, May 1st, marks that day. What they call “discontinued” I see as the passing of an old friend. Au Revoir, Alexa.
