For the past three or four months I’ve been paying attention to the Techvibes – Vancouver Startup Index. This is an index of the top ranked startups in the Vancouver area based on an average of two rankings – Alexa and Compete. For a few months, our Alexa rank has been steadily dropping (which is good!) and our Compete ranking was n/a, which was good since it then didn’t affect our overall ranking. Unfortunately, last month as we approached the the top 15 sites in Alexa score (around 50,000) in Vancouver we all of a sudden found we had a Compete rank of 300 odd thousand which, of course, destroyed our ranking in the Techvibes index, which averages the two rankings.
