Marketing guru, Seth Godin has just launched Alexaholic, a traffic ranking list of 937 Web 2.0 companies. It was designed by Ron Hornbaker of Propsmart.com. Keep in mind that the stats are based on data from Alexa, which in turn is only based on web surfers that have installed Alexa’s toolbar – so the data will be a little skewed towards webmasters, SEO types and the like. That said, most of these sites are still in Beta anyway so the larger Internet population probably wouldn’t have heard of many of them.
Anyway, a quick scan of Alexaholic’s rankings reveals:
- Zillow.com (at #33) sits on top of the rest of the Real Estate 2.0 crowd (hardly a surprise there)
- The surprising ommission of Trulia.com (perhaps due to Ron’s Propsmart affiliation?)
- The not-so-surprising ommission of Redfin.com (which looks less and less like a tech play and more like a discount broker everyday)
I didn’t dig through the list exhaustively, but for anyone interested in the goings-on of Web 2.0, Alexaholic seems like a good place to get started.
