One of the most widely used website ranking systems, Alexa.com, will be shutting down soon after 25 years of service under Amazon’s ownership. Because it is one of the best techniques for establishing a website’s ranking, I was surprised to hear the news. There will be no SEO or website ranking analysis tools available through the Amazon Alexa paying subscription service after the end of the next year.
This means that we will have to switch to a new platform in order to keep track of website data and rankings.
The API of Alexa will be disabled immediately if the service’s Internet connection is terminated. This suggests that we will have to move away from Alexa by the end of 2022, at the latest. Before Alexa is completely shut down, Amazon has said that customers can export their Alexa data.

After two decades of helping you find, reach, and convert your digital audience, we’ve made the difficult decision to retire Alexa.com on May 1, 2022
If you’ve already signed up, you can keep using Alexa Internet until it’s completely shut down on December 8th. Despite its popularity, the reason for its demise remains a mystery. Furthermore, the company has not explained why Alexa Internet was rejected.
In the past few years, service traffic has declined, and the company has unable to restore its prior position despite numerous attempts, according to the report. As of yet, the company’s social media accounts have not been updated with this information.
