Alexa rank is something that is in every blogger’s mind may he be a newbie blogger or may he be a professional blogger. No matter what all one says about Alexa, but in the end everyone (yes I mean it) keeps a track on their Alexa rank. Even I do so. 😛
But why is it so ? Why is Alexa so important to us ? Why do everyone search for Tip to improve alexa rankings ?
The answer is simple, Advertisers, Paid Posts, Sponsored posts, Paid listings etc etc. Well out there on the internet there are hardly any sites that can give you accurate info about a site’s traffic. Moreover there are some sites who does provide site stats (upto 60-65% accurate) but these sites haven’t been known by all.
Alexa is an old site and that’s the reason half or more than half of the advertisers rely on it. The better the alexa rank of a site, the more the chances of getting advertisers, though the stats and ranking of alexa are not even close to 50% accuracy.
However if you believe that your site has the potential and deserves some paid posts despite having a poor alexa rank, you must check Guide to get Sponsored posts. You may easily make 50-100$ monthly without any extra efforts.
Quick Tips to Improve Alexa Rank
Umm, so coming back to point. Even though it doesn’t matter much but still as per demands, everyone needs a better Alexa rank. So in this post I will be listing some points that can make you understand how to improve your alexa rank quickly.
Extension Based Traffic
You all must be knowing that Alexa has its own browser extension through which it tracks visits of a user and on that basis it works as an Alexa ranking factor. So the best way to get an improvement in Alexa rank is to get traffic from people/users who have alexa installed onto their browser. Well for blogging/SEO niche blogs, as most of the readers of such blogs are themselves into blogging and most probably having the extension installed.
Due to the same reason blogging sites with just even 1000 daily visits have alexa under 50,000 while sites under entertainment niche with daily traffic of 10,000 views are still not under 100,000 rank.
So this alexa extension thing cannot be achieved, but yes its a top factor. There have been many black-hat practices being done to fool by showing alexa that every user has the extension installed. But we do not support such practices and hence we won’t be sharing it publicly.
One more factor alexa sees for ranking sites is the amount of search traffic a site gets. So improve upon your search traffic to see a rise in your ranking. Getting social traffic won’t help you improve your alexa, it may just show some temporary improvements but your rank won’t be stable with social traffic.
Well, its still a confusion among many whether to add the alexa rank widget in the site or not. According to me, it doesn’t do much, and will just increase your loading time by few ms. So just avoid it.
Note: Many sites and even Alexa.com will suggest you to put the widget. But for me it doesn’t really makes much sense.
Update more often
Well yes, this thing does works. Even I have experienced it. The more you update your blog the better the rank gets. So keep updating your blog at a constant & good rate to get some improvement in your Alexa Rankings.
Well, did you read the post ?? Yes, right 😛 !! So how many tricks did you get ?? I guess 0 !!! Well yeah there are actually no tricks to decrease Alexa ranking apart from the blackhat methods (which we do not promote).
To actually get a hold onto your Alexa ranking, all you need to do is just follow the basic principles of blogging and be active. Regular blogging with quality content will definitely help you achieve a good alexa rank.
Alexa is directly related to your blog success, the better your blog gets (in terms of authority, age, content, traffic) the better your ranking will be. There aren’t any tips or tricks that can help you get better alexa with poor blog stats. Just try to understand and with this I am closing up this post. 🙂
