Hi Warriors,

My blog site got a sudden drop of over 200k in google ranking. (Data from Alexa).

From 500k ranking to nearly 800k.

This concerns me alot and I'm not sure what to do about it.

Any idea? Did any of you experience similar case before?

Appreciate your feedback and suggestion on how can I overcome this challenge.

Thanks.

Regards,
Alexander Ang

    There is nothing to do about it. Alexa is a completely useless metric that has nothing to do with SEO. Ignore it and move on.

    Mike's right. Alexa is worthless, and the number your getting from them is pretty much worthless at that ranking anyway.

    Don't spend to much time worrying about it.

    I don't think you have to worry about it. If you are getting enough traffic don't waste your time thinking about Alexa ranking. They are useless.

      But why Alexa Rankings are Nonsense and Useless??

      So many webmasters believe the opposite and recommend to use Alexa as an important indicator or metric when it comes to improve the website ranking

        Those webmasters are clueless.

        If your analytics says you have 2 visitors a month and you have made not one sale, does it help if Alexa says your ranking is 849 in the world and that your site gets 450 visitors a day?

    Given Alexa ranking's connection to you making money, I advise the following (you don't need to do all, or in the order I suggest):

    eat scrambled eggs
    go for a walk
    maw some grass
    buy a candle.

      If you were disappointed in your results today, lower your standards tomorrow.

    This thread subject dropped out of reality about the same time alexa dropped.

    Coincidence?
