    Alexa is somewhat useful for SEO but I wouldn't depend on it. Its a good way to look at the competitions top links and which words are bringing in the most traffic, which is not always right. However just because one site says it has more back links then another doesn't mean its true. Alexa only counts some links, you could have hundreds more that it doesn't show. At most its a starting point

    Hilarious, every statement you just made, you also contradicted it in your own followup.

    So, is it useful for SEO or not, are keyword comparisons useful or not, link counts are definitely not useful ( your own statement), so what makes it a good starting point ? Not seeing it.

    What WZ said. If it's not even remotely accurate (and it isn't), how can it possibly be a good starting point?

    What makes it important? Keeping in mind that you already said that it shows "backlinks" with no explanation as to why "backlinks" matter.

    WHAT INFORMATION?

    You've made that statement multiple times now. What information does it show? What "complete details" does it provide? What accurate information does it provide that actually can help someone out?

    In other words, really think about your answer before you go spitting out a random meaningless sentence.
