    Alexa is continually crawling all publicly available web sites to create a series of snapshots of the Web. It has developed intelligent bots and crawlers that collect publicly available data from websites. It has also developed a toolbar that collects browsing behaviors of users. Whole of this data is analyzed at Alexa servers and is used to create features and services like
    • Site Information: Traffic rankings, search analytics, demographics, and more
    • Related Links: Sites that are similar to the one you are currently viewing
