      it does not mean that user with alexa tool bar not installed will not be counted as your websites visitor, that just means that visitor with alexa toolbar will improve your alexa rank much faster.

      that’s what i thought

    I am getting kind of weird results in Alexa compared to Google Analytics. I have equal, if not less, visitors from Nepal, India and USA. Alexa shows 100% of visitors are from USA. Google Analytics shows about 25%, 18% and 35% and balance others. I have been ranked only in USA. What happened to my Asian visitors? What is the reason that could happen? Anybody does have an answer? Appreciate it.

      Hema@ You probably had chosen USA as your secondary ranking country. So, alexa will show you your global and USA ranking only, not for Nepal or India or any other country.

      That’s what I’ve understood so far.
