Amazon to Retire Alexa SEO Tools in May 2022
It’s a big loss for the entire digital marketing and SEO community as we’ve heard news of Amazon retiring one of its flagship SEO tools which has been around for years now. We’re talking about Alexa.com which was founded 25 years ago all the way back in 1996 and which has been used by the entire search marketing community ever since then.
The effectiveness of the brand led to it being acquired by Amazon in 1999. While it initially only provided rankings of websites based on its traffic, the site later went on to provide complete SEO tools and analysis for websites, like site auditing and backlink checking. Apart from having a wide range of marketing tools, the site went on to always been known for providing accurate Alexa Rankings.
