    Foking the TeakDoor stats

    There a lot of sites that claim to give accurate traffic reports on different domain names, alexa.com is one of the main ones.

    These traffic reports rely on people downloading their toolbar, the toolbar then reports back to the main site where you have been and this is how they rate the traffic for different sites.

    A couple of weeks ago I downloaded alexas toolbar and used it for 24 hours, in alexas traffic report our stats changed from 10 page views per person to 38, the next day was 56 I believe, they use Yankee time and i downloaded and started using it halfway through the day, now we get like 4,000 unique visitors perday, yet with just me downloading the toolbar I could throw the stats like that.

    So why not download the toolbar for a day and see how much we can change the stats, your avg and spyware wont like it as it is classed as a data miner cos it reports back, but tell your avg etc to ignore it for 24 hours, alexa is a few days behind in its reports so it will take a few days, but here you can view TeakDoor stats, and here you can download the toolbar.

    Hope you have more info than this DD. I know what visitors have entered into their search engine, which engine they used and where I ranked on that search engine.

    Also get location page visits and durations, out clicks, plus what they had for breakfast.

    Well almost.

    ^This hasn't actually got anything to do with the real teakdoor stats, it's throwing a company that gives stats a curveball, also as we get over a million page hits per month I don't go into the proper stats that carefully, ie where they came in, how many pages read, and where they left to.

    i think you will find that at least 800,000 hits are from CMN hitting refresh on his repo points page

    Yet looking at this on orientexpat you wonder about the accuracy.

    They aren't right, the whole thread is about throwing the stats way off mark, on a normal static website they can be used to give a reasonable indication of traffic, on a forum, well I threw it by 80 percent in 24 hours have a look at td stats in 3 or 4 days time when they are on alexa, I think a couple of people will download the toolbar, see how badly the stats get thrown then

    This sounds strange, surely Alexa must control for IPs so multiple refresh would be counted once, not multiple times, unless one IP through different point in time during the day is counted multiple times.

    Jesus what a fuckup situation, I have the right site to test the stats thing.

    Well the stats for the 2nd are out and on alexa, but there is a slight problem, that malaysian sex minister who was videod shagging some bird was big on the search engines so we got loads of hits from singapore and malaysia, tomorrows stats should show a increase if anybody downloaded and used the toolbar, stats can be viewed here.

    What does the scale on the far left represent? Page hits?

    If so, isn't that graph showing a declining trend given that the smallest number of the scale is at the top?

    It shows ranking

    So being 65000th is better than being 100000th
