Alexa's faults are fairly well known, but it's still a good approximation of the relative traffic that a site receives. It's certainly no more unreliable than Wikipedia, which is cited here to discount Alexa, in an irony win.

Alexa is certainly much more unreliable than Wikipedia. And geez, this article has references all over, including multiple refs to O'Reilly books, Symantec, and Alexa site itself - I think these can all be considered as reliable as it gets.

A few years ago someone compared some articles in English Wikipedia and the Encyclopedia Brittanica and found the error rate to be similar. (I will try to find info about it, if you want.)

Wikipedia is pretty reliable in my experience as well - I've actually been in the process of editing a defaced page and seen someone else do it first, and it wasn't any big top news item or anything either, just some obscure page regarding history..

Some might not realize, but Wikipedia has a Recent Changes page, and pretty much all the time there is somebody wasting his time checking all changes that look nasty (like deleting everything, or adding slur words - these things are mentioned on the RC page itself). There are even automated scripts that automatically undo suspicious edits by suspicious (new/unregistered) users.

(I'm actually a Wikipedia editor and admin, too, so I have some knowledge about its inner working and I'm willing to share it ;) - but only the Polish language one, so not everything might be applicable to English language one.)

That describes me to a T. I got a physics degree and I know ancient history inside and out. But grossing dollar 1? Not my forte.

I blame society.
