Alexa Ranking of your Blog is the second most factor after Google Page rank which is looked upon by webmasters. When I have contacted advertisers they often asked about my blog Alexa rank and traffic report from Google Analytics. There is no way to auto increase Alexa rank rather you have to work really hard for that. In the previous article I have discussed Penguin Tool to analyse your Blog traffic after Google Search Algorithm updates. And I have talked about drop in my Blog traffic also, for that I am working day and night to find out the reason and taking every necessary step to rebuild traffic. My first step was purchasing a good SEO Optimised WordPress Theme from Mythemeshop and second is trying to increase Alexa rank. I strongly believed that there is no method to increase Alexa rank quickly, but the factors listed down below are certainly going to help it increase over a period.
Alexa.com is a web information company that ranks each site based on their traffic and other factors also. As your traffic keeps changing and so is the rank changes daily. Sometimes I see that a Blog with higher traffic doesn’t have higher Alexa rank than a Blog with Low traffic. The answer for such variation is Alexa only records those hits that are passed through their system. There are two ways to meet that
- Your Visitors have installed Alexa Toolbar
- Your Blog has Alexa Widget
Nobody can ask their visitors to install a toolbar to get higher ranking in Alexa for their Blogs. Second option is the best and easiest way to increase Alexa rank of your Blog.
Top Tips to increase Alexa Ranking for your Website Blog
1. Install Alexa Toolbar
Ask your friends and Blog visitors to install Alexa Toolbar, so that whatever traffic comes on your Blog passes through Alexa system.
2. Install Alexa widget on your Blog
This is the most important step that every Blogger should do. This will help your Blog traffic gets counted by Alexa system as now visits will pass through Alexa System. If you don’t have Alexa Widget or Badge go to “Alexa Traffic Widgets” and enter your Blog URL and hit on button “Build Widget”.
3. Claim your Blog on Alexa
