Another issue which is quite famous with Alexa is that, it ranks Yahoo! at 1st position, while among the web surfers, Google is generally more popular than Yahoo.
The most common reason for Google being at 2nd position is that, Google redirects most of it’s users from it’s gTLD “.com” to various ccTLDs like “.co.in” or “.co.uk” or “.co.my” etc. And moreover many other services or web sites from Google like Feedburner.com or Blogger.com or Orkut.com are not counted in to Google by Alexa and so they have their own Alexa ranks, when you add all the traffic of these websites to Google, then Google will clearly leave Yahoo! far behind.
But right now I am NOT talking about the other services or websites of Google.
I am just considering Google.com vs Yahoo.com. For the first time Google.com is now overtaking Yahoo.com according to Alexa.
So here, in the next two screenshots you can see that Google has been already been given #1 position for it’s daily and weekly traffic.
While Yahoo is now at #2.
So for those who do not beleive Alexa’s reports, then here’s the comparison from Compete.com
