For all you Alexa fanatics out there, some changes have been made to the Alexa Traffic Rankings section that may be of interest to you.

Update Information for New Sites
For new sites that have no information in the Alexa database, the owner of the site can now add information about the site to help Alexa start tracking data on the site.

With this new feature, Alexa now allows you to:
1.Click a link to have your sites thumbnail updated (takes approximately 2 days)

2.Update your site's contact information (name, address, phone, email, etc...)

3.Confirm your email address (must be an email address of that domain)

4.Click a link in an email they send you to approve these changes

After these few basic steps are complete, Alexa says your site's information should be update within a few days.

Alexa now provides you with a graphical representation and percentages of where your site's users are coming from. The following is an example of what you will see:
