Two weeks ago I went on a quest to increase my Alexa rank.
So I started looking around for info on how Alexa’s rankings are determined and what to do to increase it.
I was already blogging pretty regularly, but I’ve added that Alexa ranking (bottom right corner of my site), started to focus more on building some good links and my ranking has increased. Alexa doesn’t show they’ve noticed the links yet so I think just giving them a more accurate look at my traffic is what’s helped so far.
So I’m asking you what advice you’ve got!
I had to laugh at myself as I just realized there’s a 3 month averaged rank (the one I was watching) and a 1 month rank. Yes, I’ve been paying close attention (sarcasm). I think I remember noticing it before, but I really should have been tracking that one along with the 3 month one… and I might be as blind as a bat but I can’t figure out where to see my actual daily rank.
I’ve checked Alexa occasionally over the last year or so, mostly when going through ProBlogger’s 31 Days to Build a Better Blog and figured it’s an interesting way to watch my progress, but haven’t obsessed over it. Should I be more concerned about my ranking?
What’s your opinion on Alexa? Any tips on how to increase rank?
