Hello and thanks in advance for any help with this.  I am working on this REMOVED and every time I want to analyze it using Alexa the site url changes to REMOVED.  I am wondering if the site is a sub-domain of REMOVED or if somehow the websites are linked, which I don't want them to be.  I have attached a screenshot. Thanks again

So I can check what keywords are bringing in traffic.  I know I can also use Google products for this but I just want to use Alexa as well.  Any idea's on my original question??

 

Thanks

Alexa only has data on site visitors that have the Alexa toolbar installed in their browsers, and given that Alexa apparently has no data on the site in question .... that number will be ~0.

Still seems weird to me that another websites data pops up.  I believe that the person who owns that website (seacraft) use to own the website I am working on (yachtfitters).  Just as long as this is not a sign that the two websites are interconnected somehow.

Are they sharing an IP address or server?

I checked that, and no.

 

It's just the usual kind of Alexa nonsense, their database has no information for that actual site URL so it shows something it 'decides' is close enough 'cause it's about yachts and things.

 

Just search engines doing what search engines do. ... Offering the user an alternative.
