If you’re running a website or if it’s a niche block, then you must know what Alexa is. Many webmasters give more important to the Alexa Rank, after Google Page Rank. You won’t believe that many of them judge your website/ blog by just seeing your Alexa Rank, nothing more, even they knows Alexa better than Google PR. Alexa rank can also give you advertising offers, as many advertisers decide to put ad on your website/blog by just checking your Alexa Rank.
They think, if your Alexa rank is good then all are OK, means your visitors, page views, impression, etc. In real, Alexa Ranking is just rubbish and it doesn’t deal with your actual visitors or page views. But looking at its demand a webmaster need to know what is Alexa Ranking and how to get better Ranking in Alexa.
First of all we need to know what Alexa is. It’s a subsidiary of Amazon.com, which defines itself as a web information company. They usually rank every website/blog based and update it in a daily basis.
After it you should ask, how they measure rankings. As we said, Alexa is just rubbish that judges your website’s traffic in an unfair way. How fool! They only records those hits which pass through their system that means either you need to put an Alexa widget/plugin on your website/blog or your visitors have to Install Alexa Toolbar on their browser. It’s found that, generally niche blog or technology blog got better Alexa ranking as compared to other blogs. Anyways there is nothing wrong if you try to increase your Alexa ranking. Now the time for tips;
Tips to increase your Alexa Ranking:
1. Alexa Toolbar: If you want to increase your Alexa ranking then you should Install Alexa Toolbar on your browser, even you also ask your friends, relatives, visitors to install the toolbar on their browser.
2. Claim your site on Alexa.com: After claiming your website on Alexa you will have full control over your site on Alexa. It will let other to know who is the owner of the site and also helps you to increase in ranking.
3. Install Alexa plugin/widget on your site: It’s needed because Alexa only counts those hits which pass through their system.
4. Try to gather techy traffics: This tip is actually beneficially. If you’re able to gather decent traffics of techies and bloggers then they will discuss about your site with others and your network will increase. In other way, most of the bloggers and techies will be installing alexa widget or toolbar on their browsers. So you can fulfill your target.
5. Link back to Alexa: Try to write a review about Alexa ranking and also give a link back to it.
