I own a 3 year old site with about 400 articles.


This site is doing average of 500 unique daily traffics majorly from search engines.


I am expecting that the alexa ranking should be around 500,000-700,000
base on my monthly traffic of about 15,000.


What do you thinks and has being your alexa ranking performance to your unique traffics.


Because the way i understand alexa ranking is the more traffic one get, the lower the
alexa ranking.

I really need this for advertisement purpose.

Thanks

    i have daily visitors more than 1000 and my rank is only 2.3mill, so low traffic to get 500 000+ ranking is impossible. Best way to get it lower is you have to get more traffic in *Edit mine is online retail shop, why it could differ from other sites in this thread (have good SEO organic visitors usually 45% and up) but i have noticed also discrepancy it jumps from up to down, cannot trust Alexa at all...

    I have alexa rank of 76,XXX on a new website. Only 1,300 visitors a day. Only thing I've done is write articles about SEO. Mainly on a subject popular in India. Seems a lot of people in India use the alexa toolbar. Every article I write causes my alexa rank to drop a little more.

    I have another website 3 years old has alexa rank of 1,359,XXX and gets 2,000 visitors a day. Alexa rank sucks in comparison, but it has nothing to do with SEO.

    Its just a matter of writing about SEO topics, especially if they target the indian SEO community.

    @trade4861 It has nothing to do with the topic (well probably it does, but for different reasons, read below). Alexa can only calculate the traffic IF the visitor who enters in a website has the Alexa toolbar installed on their browser.

    You have a higher ranking when you write about SEO probably because most of your readers are interested in internet marketing. Almost all internet marketers have the toolbar installed. In other words, if 100 visitors enter on your site but only 30 have installed the alexa toolbar, then Alexa counts only 30 visits and not 100.

    One of my websites had alexa rank 800,XXX with only 100 visitors a day.

      Well the topic involves internet marketing, kinda. But yea, I understand how alexa works.

    Alexa is good for nothing really. However, some still seem to measure success based on the rankings. A friend has his site in the 30,000 range and hardly gets traffic, most comes from links. Organically ranks for only a couple keywords. His site is also based on article marketing... kinda. Most all his traffic comes from India

      I just want to share my experience with Alexa.
      My website (about krav maga ) has bin jumped from 7 million to under 1 million alexa rank in just 3 months!
      But the amount of traffic which I^m getting is still the same!
      mybe 10-20 visitors per day!
      So what a hell is Alexa purpose about ? if somebody gets with a Alexa Rank of 2milion some 500 U.Visitors per day and somebody with some 930000 just 10. visitors what is Alexa immportance at all??
      I^m big diasapointed and confused with Alexa! Why Google doesn^t bring something more accurate,more better instead of this crap called Alexa?

    Alexa rank is a worthless statistic, unless you are using it as a selling point to sell your website to people who don't know that it's worthless.

      Right now, we see approx. 1,000 visitors daily, and have an Alexa rank of 194,XXX: Soccerwidow | About Football Statistics, Betting Maths, Value Betting and Strategies

      Prior an optimising exercise (improving the SEO descriptions, reducing bounce rates), which started three weeks ago, we had approx. 700 visitors a day, and a 'proud' Alexa rank of around 140,XXX.

      Now, increased visitor numbers, but dropping in Alexa like a stone.

      It's really useless if you don't write about SEO, and blog optimisiation. However, there are loads of advertisers who pay a great attention to Alexa ranking.

    Alexa is only accurate for the top 100,000 websites and even then not so accurate. Don't think about it too much bro.

      High alexa rank make sens if you can sell advertising space on your website.
      The main reasons why people purchase alexa rank improvement services for their websites is not to gain more traffic but to justify their existing traffic in an eyes of potential advertisers.
      I have see sites pulling in 3-4k uu per day and still rank above 100K

      To an average advertiser who's audience is 100% English speaking your website needs to be:
      1. under 100K
      2.with most traffic coming from US

      So, if your website has tons of traffic yet, your alexa rank stinks,
      Or
      Your alexa rank is great except 99% visitors come from India

      You may need professional alexa services.

      Besides your global rank ,alexa service will improve traffic parameters like:
      - page views per user , on average 6-9
      - bounce rate, low - only 1-3%
      - average time spend on site, on average 6-9 minutes
      - number of visits via SE, around 20-30%
      All this with 100% traffic coming from US ( rank 1M-50K )

    Alexa not only measures the amount of visitors, but the amount of time the visitors spend on your website, and it only measures those with the toolbar installed.

    Believe it or not installing Alexa on every computer that works on your website's browser, will help considerably. My Alexa rank is the lowest when I work on my website the most, not when I have the most visitors, which is when I actually do not have time to work on the website anymore.

    As was said above, if Alexa is a priority for you, your priorities are way out of alignment. Unless of course you are flipping websites to some poor souls that do not know a better way of measuring the true value of a website.

      Same here, At the early stage when I tweak a new site , add new content,onsite seo etc spending frequently 1-2 hours a day, the alexa rank drops to about 400K after only 2 month.
      Then after site is done and i visit it only few short times per week rank goes back to low millions again.
      Unless it was a SEO related site, in which case then rank does improve farther with each uu visitor on its own.

    Holy cow. Spamming alexa. Come on WF, get a grip on reality.
    Digging up old threads to spam is just as insane as even thinking
    that alexa matters.

    Here's a free and easy way of improving alexa. Put your site in
    a big autosurf. Some of the biggest and baddest alexa sites are
    autosurfs and other traffic exchanges. Now, how meaningful is that?

    Alexa gets data from people who install their toolbar - not very savy internet users. Completely useless and very easy to fake rankings. You should focus more on search engine position for your keywords because this has real implications. Being #1 for your keyword in Google means lots more than being #103,543 in Alexa. Alexa data does not mean anything.

    Alexa ranking is not based only on traffic. It is calculated from many of factors such as traffic, traffic sources, total of backlinks, time on site, bandwidth used, ...

    Alexa ranking is 100% worthless. Never use it for anything meaningful.
