    I understand that Alexa rank is important, but I just don’t get why it would be important for a business to have their stats shown on Alexa. I don’t see the connection between my customers and Alexa. Does higher Alexa ranking affect Search engine results? In any case, I will gladly take any opportunity to improve my overall web presence. Thanks for the post.
