    Alexa Update
    So Alexa has a new feature that lets you see what other sites are owned by the same person as a site you type in.
    Just enter a site and see the results on the lefthand side of the page.
    I spent an hour or 2 checking out, and saving some information on some of the competition.
    But apparently their information is not 100% accurate(big suprise).
    Kind of glad most of my sites are whois protected....

    Isn't it the WHOIS protection that screws it up? I have my domains guarded and, thanks to that, it associates any other domains protected with the same anonymous cloak as mine! Apparently, I own many sites about lolitas and girls that are barely 18. I'd be slightly offended if I thought anyone took Alexa data seriously.


    edit: it says I also own chucknorrisfacts.com so it isn't all bad I guess

    That feature has been there for years, it just rarely works correctly or is always inaccurate. They just now corrected a listing with my visualintensity.com domain for a site I did own, but haven't owned since 2003. No amount of emails would get them to remove it as a "site I also own" even though it's been 3 years.

    And to this day it still lists my contact info as the owner for that old domain, and a rant I left in the comments for that domain about the bad information in April of 2004 still exists.

    They have listed 4 new sites now, but only one that I really own. The other 3 are just sites I run for people, my info just happens to be on the domain registrations.
