I have an Alexa Traffic Rank widget on my website, http://Drums.yolasite.com/ , but I don't know exactly what it is doing. Could someone fill me in on this?

Alexa traffic rank basically gives your site a placement on the world wide web for how much traffic your domain gets. The number one domain, which is google.com, means that their domain gets the most traffic on the Internet, and then it goes up from there. So, the lower your number, the better your traffic rank.

However, this does not work the same for yolasite.com subdomains because your website is a subdomain of the main domain yolasite.com. So at this time the traffic rank for yolasite.com is 2,913, and this will be the case for all yolasite.com subdomains.

So really the only way for the Alexa traffic ranker to work properly is with a top level, custom domain.

I hope that makes sense.
