    Is Alexa Ranking is really a good way of judging the sites progress (traffic, page view etc.), as heard that it is used mostly be the webmasters (having Alexa tool) ?

    Personally I just use Alexa ranking as a guide rather than as a source of accurate figures. Alexa is more accurate for the top 100,000 sites, after that it becomes less reliable.

    That would depend on what your objective is for ranking those sites. You could use Google Page Rank or http://www.compete.com/.

    Naturally most webmasters would prefer to rank highly, especially as potential advertisers may use ranking as a guide to the best sites for them to advertise on. However, the quantity and quality of visitors to your site is much more important than how you rank on a third party ranking service.

    Same with Fergal, I just use it as a guide. Never really checked it unless I accidentally clicked the Alexa toolbar on my browser. :p

    You can also check www.websitegrader.com
    Although it's kinda similar to Alexa, it could still help you as a guide.
