The file does not completely load, just the first 65k listings.
I’m using ms Excel.

Excel is limited to 65k lines, you will have to import it into a database in order to work with all the data.

Thanks Frank, I should have remembered that.

Hi Frank. Thanks for pointing this out. After I read your post
today, I downloaded the Alexa top million sites file to a dedicated
server and wrote a tool to let me search/parse using my browser.

The data is pretty interesting. In addition to checking on competitors,
it’s possible to get a list of top trafficked domains by domain extension.

For example, I found…

565,805 sites using .com
70,640 sites using .net
48,810 sites using .org
13,135 sites using .info
3939 sites using .biz
3628 sites using .tv
3107 sites using .eu
227 sites using .mobi

If you would like to try the tool out, it’s located at and can search the entire list in about 5-10 seconds.

Thanks again!

Use Excel 2007. The limit in the new excel is 1M, or 2^20.

Is there any online website that provide online alexa daily ranking checking instead of downloading the file every day?

@forumku: I’d check the website for that.
