After 3 Weeks Alexa Updates Again

Movers and Shakers of the Nigerian Web SpaceYesterday, Alexa updates its ranking again, after three weeks delay due to new algorithm that included other baskets of metrics. This new updates proves that Alexa truly has a better (though undisclosed) metrics than her former sole ‘tool bar’ metric.

Below is the latest Nigerian Websites in order of importance according to the latest updates by Alexa. Remember that I did a piece on Nigeria’s foremost Indigenous websites last month. As Usual this doesn’t include yahoo and Google which shared the first 3 positions because, by my judgment, they aren’t indigenous websites.

Three new web whizkids emerged in the last three weeks on the Nigerian scene. The first in the list of movers and shakers is Telenovela Love Stories, which leaped from 401,000 to 39,000 (15th position), followed by Naija E Cash, and a new forum based in U.K called New Nigerians, it is patterned after our Noble Nairaland Forum. How far New Nigerians would go cannot be determined now, as people felt it was just a carbon-copy of Nairaland. The web has a way of punishing duplicates though …

  1. Thanks for your observation. I noticed that more and more Nigerians are beginning to support my new blog. So much encouragement and technical help has been enjoyed by me in the past two months that I started the blog.

    It feels nice to be loved. As usual, I am PROUD to be a NIGERIAN! Long Live Nigeria! Cheers. 😉
