    I'm just wondering how often do Alexa update. ?

    I've got the Alexa toolbar installed, and it updates my overall ranking on a regular basis, but the number of sites linking in is static.

    Well it would seem mine has been stuck on 14 for over a month now, yet I know from Google analytics I have loads more than this, or does Alexa treat links differently to Google.

    Alexa is still the same confusing thing as it was before everybody give different meaning to alexa rank for me I think it shows the increasing number of traffic I mean if the traffic is table your alexa will not drop but if your traffic increase than your alexa will drop

    Oh you mean their metric system. Actually the lower the traffic, the higher the number is. The higher the traffic, the lower the number Alexa gives. It means that their metric sys. is different from Google's PR. It's quite the opposite.

    e.g. Google's PR: Highest=10, Lowest=0 or n/a
    Alexa: Highest=1, Lowest=n/a or Millions.

    They update once a week, usually on the Monday. If your site rank is in the top 100k, you get updated every 24 hrs.

    Um, Alexa has nothing to do with reputation. The lower the rank, the more traffic you get.
