Mylot global ranking has risen from 7,860 to 7,122 (alexa) but I don’t believe most visitors come from germany- this is one thing I dont understand, maybe another website exists with the name mylot.

The Alexa ranking is based on the reports from machines which are running the Alexa browser add-in or toolbar. If more of these happen to be in Germany than in other parts of the world, then the results are bound to be skewed. The statistics from the myLot server are the only reliable guide to where most users are from (and which platform, browser and device they are using). Only @mylotbugs has that information. Usually, such information is business sensitive and many sites will not publlish it (or will only give limited data).

@shynu44 Alexa don't skew their results. They are simply the number of people who have Alexa installed who visit the site specified. If more people who visit myLot happen to use Alexa in Germany than in other countires, then that is what Alexa will report.

There is no other website with the name myLot.com There must be servers based in Germany for therm to think so much traffic comes from there
