Alexa Logo

The May Alexa Top 1 million sites PageRank check has now been completed and a summary of the analysis of the data follows.The Alexa list includes 1 million URLs, however this was stripped to the domain level and duplicates were removed therefore you will see less than 1 million PageRank checks in the results. The checks were completed over a number of days in May using multiple proxies. There were a few malformed URLs in the list that did not resolve so no PageRank value was recorded for them.

Total URLs Checked: 989519
