Amazon farm Alexa.com

It is a page in the history of the web that is turning. After 25 years of good and loyal service, Alexa.com bows out as evidenced by the home page of the site belonging to Amazon which specifies: " after more than two decades of helping you find, reach and convert your digital audience, we will be removing Alexa.com on May 1, 2022. "A complete closure to come for this service to which it is no longer possible to subscribe since yesterday.

A domain name that shouldn't go unused ...

What will happen to the domain? We do not know at the moment, but there is no doubt that the idea of ​​recovering it for Alexa must have germinated for a long time at Amazon. Indeed, if Alexa Internet was in serious decline, the trend is quite different for the voice assistant whose success is growing, its number of users continues to grow.

Fascinated by Alexa since the day I received it in beta test, I gradually became passionate about the subject, before deciding to go further by creating a site with Jean-Christophe. An activity that allows me to quench my thirst for new technologies and share my discoveries about the nicest of communities: Les Alexiens.
