If the shit fits.

While catching up on the newsfeeds this weekend, I stumbled across a perfectly wonderful quote by Evan Williams.

He pretty much sums up every discussion I’ve ever had on this particular subject, to wit …

“I only point to Alexa graphs from now on when they help illustrate my point, since in general it’s full of shit.”

I think I’ll just point to this post the next time someone attempts to use Alexa data to prove their point.

    So true. Only time I ever dredge Alexa is to add numbers to a report for a client.
