How to Improve alexa rank of my site

by 83 comments
Hello Everyone,
I've heard that to improve my website's alexa rank alexa widget is needed. And beside this alexa toolbar is also needed for visitor's browser and many others.

But I want to find some effective ways.

If you know about it please shear with me.

Thank You

    Tariqhoque,

    I would suggest not putting too much weight on this metric. There is a lot of debate around the web as to how accurate and useful it is. Some people say that the data is totally exaggerated and skewed, others like to use it. Alexa collects its data by a tool bar installed in the browser for users. If users don’t have the tool bar installed, they are not counted in the data. So in theory, if a website had visitors that were well aware of the Alexa tool bar and didn’t want it installed, that site would have a horrible Alexa ranking. That’s probably a horribly extreme example but you get the idea.
    In a nutshell, there are probably lots of other things you should be working hard on before you start worrying about this.

    Hope that helps,

      I completely agree I think Alexa is useless - but I understand why people would want to find a way to increase Alexa results, seeing as it's one of the factors automatically rated on Flippa auctions...

      And I hear tell that it's quite easy to fake a high alexa ranking if you have a bit of a budget - by hiring someone with the right equipment & know-how, to simulate thousands of website views on browsers with the Alexa tool bar, seeminfly all from different IP ranges....

      You're right. I uses have a terrible Alexa ranking. When I installed the toolbar after about 3 to 4 months my ranking went from about 7 million to just under 150,000. When I removed the toolbar within a month my ranking dropped to around 3 million.

      I've tested this several times and it's always the same; and with the changes they've made over the years to monetize their data, if you're a marketer looking to see how you rank on the internet Alexa is not the way to go.

      I've had people call me to brag about their Alexa ranking... Didn't Zeekler even use it in their sales pitch?

      So aside from usual BS, there's always unusual BS.

    Okay. I'll shear ya. Spin your site on something useless,
    like a autosurf traffic exchange. Especially a big one.

    Watch your alexa go up.

    I'd rather watch grass grow.

    Alexa, I might add, is the way I tell people to build web empires

    Alexa is own and operated by amazon. Yes amazon. They have
    a huge footprint online. I wonder why nobody but me ever
    points that out?

    When you realize alexa is run by amazon, doesn't that show you
    what the site really is for?

      Try to get more traffic to your site. Write a review of your site on Alexa and ask your visitors to do the same. Add fresh content on your website regularly and write guest posts on other blogs to get quality backlinks.

    Alexa rank depends on the traffic to tour site.So you have to take measures to increase the traffic,which can be done by socializing on social media sites and Bookmarking on top sites such as Stumbleupon,Reditt,delicious etc.

    1. As I always say quality matters.If you write quality posts then others will automatically link back to you and thereby increasing backlinks and traffic as well which increases your alexa rank.

    2. Share your posts on social networks like Facebook,Stumble upon and Digg.These sites not only brings massive traffic but also helps in increasing your Alexa R

    3. Comment on other blogs which are under the niche Blogging and Technology with good traffic and link back to your blog.In this way build more links from blogs with good traffic because backlinks are crucial as you might have noticed that alexa even calculates the number of backlinks you have.

    4. To gain full control over your site.Claim your site on Alexa.com.This will help others to know who owns the site and helps you in ranking better on Alexa.

    If your like to increase the alexa of your web site than u need to get mot traffic on your web site

    At first I thought Traffic = Alexa Rankings but then I tested a site, threw a "paid" high quality theme on it and purposely went for as minimal traffic as possible. Alexa rankings started to go up just because of how the site looked. Traffic was about 1-5 visitors a day(mostly spiders) and rankings still increased. Keep in mind I had basically ZERO content to duplicate content/pictures. I did hit the site with fb likes/tweets/g+'s though. I would say site quality/looks and if you have social signals incorporated is a huge Alexa ranking factor.

    Just my 2cents

    Increase the traffic to maximize the number of visitors using Alexa Toolbar. Alexa only counts the visitors who have the Alexa Toolbar installed in their browser

    This is a ranking system set by alexa.com that basically audits & make public the frequency of visits on various websites.The algorithms according to which alexa traffic ranking is calculated is simple.It based on the amount of traffic recorded from users that have the alexa toolbars installed over a period of three months

    Don't try to decrease it. This will happen automatically. Try to build high quality backlinks and if you probably get traffic from SE, then everything will happen automatically (as I said!)

    This is not true. there are not any rule that to improve alexa rank you required alexa widget. Alexa fetches automatic your sites visitors. alexa rank only depend on visitors number of site. if your have 400 to 600 visitors daily on your site it should be near 50000.
    high alexa rank indicate low visitors number on your site and low alexa rank means your site having lots of visitors daily.

    IMO, alexa ranking is not important you should concentrate on Google ranking which is important in SEO.
  • Profile picture of the author ProSence
    As alexa rank is mainly for traffic so of course, you have to increase traffic of your site, then Alexa rank would improve itself, there is no doubt of this really.

    You Should Carry On Your Link Building Techniques To Improve Traffic Of Your Website. The Alexa Rank Will Improve As The Number Of Visitors Improves. But One Thing That You Should Keep In Your Mind Is The Quality Of Content.

    why alexa is important to you ?
    Alexa is only the way to calculate your period time of traffic. You got increasing traffic in this time, and next time, your site can be descreased traffic.
    To me, alexa is only reference method
