I look at my alexa rank once in a while and then compare it with my real user numbers. So my ranking varies between 70.000 and 120.000 but my average visitors a day increased from 5000 to ~ 8000 a day in the same time. So whats does this say – Alexa is maybe interesting for sites with a alexa ranking below 10.000 but not for sites like tinywebgallery which is around 100.000 as you see at the user numbers.
I actually don’t care about alexa because this blog is for TWG/TFU/JFU and stuff related to this. I only wanted to see if more people come to this blog because of this alexa article.
So all TWG/TFU/JFU users – this is only a simple experiment 😉 .
Have fun waisting your time with alexa.
Below you find some lines you should think about in the alexa forum:
I see this line in blogs just about every day: “How to boost your Alexa Rank.” or “How to Boost Alexa Rank in 2 Steps” or “Boost Alexa traffic ranking” They are inevitably filled with misguided musings posted by fools who can’t be bothered to learn the facts before blathering about some get-rich-quick scheme.
Here’s a perfect example. In this blog post, he says you can boost your rank EASILY by following his simple steps. That post was from August 9th, so he should be in the top 100 by now, right? Wrong. In fact, he barely cracked the Top 100,000. But, his rank did go up… did his scheme work? No, of course not. It is just that people who have the Alexa Toolbar noticed his post and visited his site, pushing his rank up.
Then there are the blogs that tell you to put one of our Alexa Widgets on your site. They all claim that your rank will improve dramatically. But, of course, it doesn’t work. That would be ridiculous, right? But you wouldn’t know that if you read these blogs.
Of course we can’t forget the people who will charge you to increase your rank. I wonder how much money these services have made over the years. I can tell you with absolute certainty, that you may as well burn your money in a voodoo traffic pyre while chanting “Alexa” over and over. Maybe that will work. But these programs definitely don’t and you can look at their traffic rank as proof. If that isn’t enough to convince you, how about this… even trying to boost your rank through these means is resorting to fraud. That is no way to run a business.
So, how do you increase your Alexa Rank? Get more traffic to your site. Make good content. It is that simple.
