IPE taking on Ibibo!

I was just checking out the alexa rankings of this new site I read about in Deccan Chronicle (yeah! sometimes I do read newspapers ... no, I actually dont!!). Its apparently the firstIndian pr0n toon star (the IPE in the title stands for Indian Porn Empire)!! Her name is Savita Bhabhi, and the site is a daily comic strip of her shall we say "exploits".

I compared the pageviews of savitabhabhi dot com to ibibo dot com (no links, I do not wish to link myself to these sites), and lo behold! check out for yourself ...

Just an interesting piece of stats and comparison, if nothing else. But, isnt it interesting to note that the same time the traffic stats on ibibo went down, those on savitabhabhi went up.

Sidenote - What do you think would be ibibo's target market?

PS - This post in no ways is an attempt to offend any of the owners of the sites mentioned.

"ibibo dot com (no links, I do not wish to link myself to these sites),"

Hee hee hee... with due apologies to Rahul Razdan :)

but if you see the line for ibibo, it's not really a decline, it's mostly a flat trend, and if anything, it's a bell-shaped curve.

but the inference is hilarious :)

ibibo's target market apparently seems to be people like you, given the fact that you know about this site. [:p]
On a sidenot, what makes you think that the traffic on ibibo went down anytime? Control chart the stats and you will find that the "downtime" that you are talking about is in fact the process variation and wouldn't be considered as a trend down yet.

@ashish - well, at first I thought I would simply compare the traffics, but notice the dips and the rise in both the curves.. its almost perfectly timed :-) ... but you realize, that to reach conclusions like these, I have to jump logic somewhere ;-)

Alexa Internet, is a California-based subsidiary company of that is best known for operating a website that provides information on the web traffic to other websites.
Alexa collects information from users who have installed an “Alexa Toolbar,” allowing them to provide statistics on web site traffic, as well as lists of related links. It uses these data to form Alexa ranking. There is some controversy over how representative Alexa’s user base is of typical Internet behavior. If Alexa’s user base is a fair statistical sample of the internet user population, Alexa’s ranking should be quite accurate. A known source of bias is the self-selecting, opt-in nature of Alexa traffic tracking software installation, but the significance of this bias on rankings is not reported. Alexa ranking measures traffic ranking collected from Alexa toolbar users. High alexa ranking has no relationship with high google ranking, yahoo ranking, and etc.
Ranking in Alexa is significant as it can significantly increase your bargaining power when it comes to selling advertising on your site. If advertisers see that your site has a higher ranking, they are likely to think that they can sell more of their products and services by having a link on your site. This means that you can charge them higher fees for that link.
