    If you have to choose just one data parameter to compare sites, that would be number of unique visitors. That is the hardest parameter to grow too.

    I am surprised you are making secret out of it. I assume your advertisers expect you to share this number, not how many likes were given, how many posts and pms were posted...

    That is really interesting, @Grilled. Not surprised that USA is about 29% but somewhat surprised how high India is (but maybe higher percentage Chrome with Alexa browser extension there?). No doubt India is more and more important in domain business as @Michael noted in a recent interview with @equity78 . So Canada is way less, but does its inclusion mean it is the third highest contributor to the stats, and all other countries are less than 3.7% of total? Would seem surprising if so, perhaps. Like UK, China, Germany etc. less. Go Canada :xf.smile:.

    Because your 8,000+ posts helped achieve that.

    So did r.m's. and r.j's, heck, there might even be a rob(a-z) helping to contribute here.

    The point being, namePros wouldn't be the same without you @frank-germany ...

    Like it or not, you have become a lot of folks go-to german guy around here.

    I've bought into some of what you've post. Albeit never a .de domain, but I do appreciate your opinions and viewpoints.

    Do online friends/acquaintances count as a benefit? or being apart of a niche community?

    Having high India traffic ratio almost ensures warped Alexa ranking towards greatly overestimating it.

    As the ratio of people engaged in web related services are very high there, they also tend to install Alexa way more than people in the West would.

    On the other hand, Alexa could be wrong about NP geography completely, as a consequence of the same issue with skewed preference for Alexa geographically, Alexa is completely off about geography of visitors.

    According to Alexa, for Rightbrand the main traffic source is India too with 41%.

    Reality? India is number 3 at just 5%, with US being #1 with 35% and Canada #2 with 9%.

    So it overestimated India traffic by 8 (!) times, again because of overrepresentation of Alexa toolbars in that geography.

    Here is the screenshot of my stats for last 3 months by country.

    I tend to agree with this. Especially since the industry already has too many "suppliers" (all of us are, lol) and so it is not obvious that an increased number of new participants is beneficial for the industry (as a group) or to any individual participant. Registrars and other service providers are natural exception.... On the other hand, competition is fine. Where would the industry be should there still be just 1 team ( Yun Ye + tons number of employees who handregged netsol drops in 1990something and monetized the result with generic yahoo feed - short but basically correct description of the "roots")? Hope that the content posted may at least prevent some newbies from thinking that they can make a lot of $$$ fast and with little or no effort.

    Alexa screenshot suggests that the forum has a lot of visitors from India. A great country, and an origin of a lot of highly gifted persons well known worldwide - no doubts. At the same time, various analysts report that a great %%% of spam and other questionable stuff are from India : - (

    A benefit of a large forum (from a practical point of view) is that if one has a problem (bad customer service received from this or that supplier, or more deep problems), should it posted here, this will definitely help to resolve an issue. Posting the same on a personal blog may not be noticed by anybody. So is general fraud detection like known cases of shill bidding - came to light only because of this forum.

    Alexa is least accurate for websites with low traffic because it lacks sufficient data to estimate their traffic.

    Not sure what you are implying here.

    I wouldn't call 100k+ over 3 months "low traffic".

    I have a site that gets millions of visitors a year and Alexa is as wrong in that range.

    If you had access to np ga stats, and something tells me you don't, you would see that Alexa is grossly inaccurate there too. I am positive Indian traffic is closer to 10%, not 40%.

    Reach and opportunity.

    As NamePros grows, the community can benefit from more:
    1. Viewers of your content (e.g., your viewpoints, marketplace activities, contests, and signature)
    2. Networking opportunities (e.g., shared-interest relationships, partnerships, and career opportunities)
    3. Shared knowledge and news (e.g., stay informed on best practices, trends, strategy, sales, analysis, and tools)
    4. Advice and support (e.g., fresh ideas, perspectives, and lesson-filled experiences)
    5. Financial trades (e.g., buying and selling)
    6. Confidence in yourself and others
    7. Recognition and status
    Not all of these will apply to everyone, but the opportunities exist.

    The unique benefit of communities is that our success as a platform is dependent on yours and the value that we provide you. It's a mutually-beneficial relationship. :)

    Daily changes were not discussed.

    I referenced changes over months.

    The whole Alexa being able to infer geographical data for a site based on people installing its toolbar is a myth.

    Alexa is a very very rough approximation of overall traffic ranges.
