My Alexa rank is going down, Any Suggestions

18 replies
Hello Everyone,

I was planning to raise my Alexa in 50K first and then in 10K but unfortunately it has slipped to 105K from 92 K. I think the reason is my Alexa in my own country is going down. Do you have any suggestions how can I improve my Alexa in my own country? Do you know any guaranteed way of taking my Alexa to top 50K? Please share your knowledge and ideas. I am really looking for something helpful.

Thank You

    The Alexa rank climbs up when you have a lot of traffic, inbound links and therefore content. The only thing I'd invest into these days is content, content and more content :-)

    Yes - ignore it altogether. Stop looking at it and build your business instead. Trying to improve the "Alexa rank" of your site is a completely futile ambition.

    alexa, i agree - same thing as checking your google rankings daily. instead of caring about that the one thing you should do is improving your site and serving your readers. alexa, google and co will do the rest

    That is right. Traffic plays a major role in boosting your Alexa rankings..and backlinks too. But ensure you have appropriate content to drive traffic because the more value you provide to your readers the better traffic and rankings as well.

    The Alexa Rank can be way off. I have websites that get hardly any traffic but have a rank well under the 100k mark. It's not something to worry about. If you are looking to get a better Alexa rank with the goal of selling your site then building multiple traffic streams and monetizing your site in a solid way with longevity in mind is something much better to focus your time on.

    It is irrelevant and generally doesn't matter. I have seen many strange things - Alexa traffic dropping and at the same time traffic jump sky high!

      No surprise there - all it can measure is the number of visitors to a site who have the "Alexa toolbar" installed and running in their browser at their time of their visits (and those people are all "other internet marketers" - nobody else uses it). It isn't even a "rough estimate" of any other traffic at all.

      A few years ago, when I used to look, its "findings" for all my sites bore no resemblance at all to my traffic: I had both very high traffic sites "ranked" nowhere, and sites with very little traffic ranked in the top 30,000. It was all just irrelevant nonsense, but once you understand what it actually claims to measure, that's fairly predictable.

      You say that, Nitesh, but actually you've been given plenty of potentially very helpful advice about your site in several other threads, when you've asked for help - and you've apparently taken no notice at all of any of it. I'm mentioning this not to try to offend you, but because I'm really wondering whether you can actually believe, yourself, that you're "looking for something helpful", when you never seem to take any notice of it, when it's offered ... and the glaringly obvious problems with your site are exactly the same now as they were months ago.

    Alexa is irrelevant. My best sites have Alexa in the millions. If you really want, you can buy some bot traffic to boost it.

    You should concentrate in increasing your backlink value by using high level backlinks, Alexa is not always looking on the traffic but, also, on the value of your links.

    If a site has an Alexa ranking around 2,500 can that be seen as positive, or we should ignore the ranking even in that case ?

      Personally, I like the Alexa toolbar for one thing, which has nothing to do with IM. I use it for the periodically updating hot pages, mostly news stories that I probably would not otherwise see. Anyway, though they do still rely on the toolbar for their rankings, they have moved away from it being the sole factor.

      That high up the rankings, I'd assume the site's a big deal, but Alexa should always be taken with a grain of salt and can easily influenced by the target audience.

    Why do you care about alexa? How is it making you money to have a good rank?

    Cheers,

      Unfortunately, this isn't even true. It's easily possible to have a huge flow of consistent traffic and an awful "Alexa rank", if the site doesn't attract internet marketers (i.e. users of the Alexa toolbar). People tend to reply, in threads on this subject, on the basis of an underlying assumption that Alexa rankings are roughly proportional to overall traffic volumes, but that isn't actually so.

    Go to your website and hit the refresh button all day.

    ...lol i'm kidding (kinda). Don't worry about Alexa ranking. My hunches tell me that if your sales were crazy high everyday, you wouldn't be worrying about something like an alexa ranking... which can be EASILY manipulated.

    Don't worry about Alexa ranking! Just keep focused on delivering and updating your blog etc! There are things we can't "control" and it's best this way! Quality first...then the rest!

    Monja is right! Concentrate on content!!

    Good luck
