Gibt keine wirliche Alternative zu Alexa - und natürlich "spioniert" Alexa, aber das ist ja schließlich das Prinzip. Daten sammeln andere Dienste auch und Google würde man ja wohl auch kaum als Spamware deklarieren ...
Without purchasing one of Alexa's expensive Plans, websites are systematically underrated and given a low ranking. They suggest that their ranking is authoritative and based on visitor statistics, which isn't the case, simply because they don't measure all rated websites. In fact, they force you to purchase their plans, if you want to be on their Alexa Ranking with actual statistics, since they rate websites even if the owner doesn't want to or objects, for instance when a (free) statistics service (like StatCounter) is already in use.
Alexa's business model is a clear fraud. Thank you not, Alexa/Amazon.
Honestly, I can't imagine anyone trusting Alexa. They might very well be victims of the Consumer-Stockholm-Syndrome. Snap out of it people!
It's just disgusting! It's just perverse! A naked man masturbates openly in front of the camera and shows even anal sex! And Google shows something! Any child can see it! One would have to sue Google - that those pigs are pure open access for everyone "
