How does a new site not even 5 months old, few backlinks get page 1 status on such a high competitive keyword phrase?

I am just assuming this is the reason why i am, Google either like my concept, or they are giving me a chance?

If your site is pretty new they might give you a chance because of this fact alone. But you can't rely on it as Google can put you into the sandbox soon and it takes time to recover. This is often the case with new sites that rank high for competitive keywords. Something's odd with them and it won't take long that they're gone for a while.

i guess alexa ranking gives the precise info as rather the google page rank is to do with nothing as it do not maintain the records......no updation!!

Hi Buddy, Would you mind just checking that for me sometime (live share prices & share prices) in US.

I got #2 on my PC but my business partner (about 5 miles away) got #5 (in UK)
It may just be that if you recently logged out of G it remembers the position (??)

Thanks.

Default Alexa

No alexa wasn't much useful to me. I had been using nibbler for sometime now.

Default Nibbler

http://nibbler.silktide.com/

It is quite useful for showing weak/strong areas of your site.

It is also good fun trying to get to No.1 (which we did with Shareworld some months ago!)

Mind you I find it hard to "test your website" now it has been altered. Maybe you have to register.

Alexa was slightly more useful when you could do a comparison with another website and that would throw up more detail (graphs) on your own site even if your ranking was below 100,000.
Also they had more data on bounce rates etc. than they give now.

Alexa is not much to be worried about. Google PageRank is important. There would be many who would ask you to ignore the importance of Google PageRank. But, the fact is Google PageRank is one factor which will affect your Google Ranking. The important thing to consider is building quality links on high PageRank webpages which will help you improve both your search engine ranking and PageRank.

Such has been the received "wisdom" for many years. But a simple check of SERPS for any keywords you like quickly reveals that this is no longer the case.

Many sites with very low PR (2 and below) now often outrank PR6 and 8 sites.

Default Alexa and Google are Fine. Linkscape isn't

Alexa can update daily, Google updates whenever they feel the need, Linkscape, however, no matter how hard they try, can't get their indexing done.

First the capacity was too small, then the software had bugs. Now they had a hardware failure. They are trying to expand to 100billion and their system keeps biting back. They did announce that they will try to have it done by the end of the month. So, for all who track Linkscape rankings (MozRank) , just hang in there. They really are trying
