Help With Alexa Ranking

Hi All,

I have been working on a site for about 30 months now. The Alexa ranking of this site use to be between 400000 to 450000. But in the last 6 months its dropping at a very steady pace and now has reached 780321.

I have been using almost all the techniques out there, article marketing, directory submission, bookmarking, video etc. The only thing I have not done is a self hosted blog and forum posting as I am not familiar with the topic. I have been using these for almost all of the 30 months that I have worked on this site.

In July this year the owner gave me a new set of keywords to work with. I managed to get about 25% of them within the first 3 pages of google by now but the Alexa keeps dropping every single day.

What do I do to improve the ranking of the site. Please help.

Hey felgall, it actually works. This morning the rank was 775500 now after I installed the toolbar and refreshed the site a few times. Now the rank has shot up to 771326.

Thanks a ton felgall, god bless.

Thank you guys for your help. @felgall thanks a ton for the tip. @cbp my job depends on this answer…

Alexa rank is calculated according to the traffic which comes to your website. Lesser Alexa Rank = More Traffic. More the Alexa rank it means there is no traffic for your website. So try to bring traffic(users) to your website. Do Bookmarking and concentrate on social networking. IMO don’t give more importance to alexa rank. It is not stable and always change. So never bother about it.

Tell the friend who was visiting your site with the Alexa spybar installed that they need to reinstall the spybar so that their visits will boost your Alexa rank back up to what it was. One person with that toolbar installed visiting your site every few days should be enough to recover your Alexa rank back to what it was before.

Nothing you do with the site itself will have any impact on Alexa rank.

Can I suggest anyone asking about the Alexa ranking get banned. Every week there is a new thread on this going over the same thing.

Alexa is crap. Alexa is meaningless. Alexa is useless. Alex counts for nothing.

An improvement or a drop in the Alexa ranking counts for nothing.

I think you are not being truthful Please explain how a fraudulently obtained Alexa ranking actually helps a site.

I came acros this gem of a lie on the Alexage website:

Take advantage of the relationship between Google and Alexa. Alexa rankings have a major impact on Google search results; the lower the Alexa ranking, the higher your site would appear on Google search results.
Alexage are a fraud for claiming that.

Positive reviews of your website on Alexa can help you to boost your overall rank and you’ll be noticed in Alexa listings and your SERP will climb through the ranks.

This can be done manually or you can hire someone on Fiverr for $5 like this one:

It’s up to you to decide how much is your time worth

What a load of nonsense. Have you even read this thread before posting? Do you actually know how the Alexa ranking is calculated? Care to explain how Alexa rankings actually affects the SERPs?

Alexa rank attracts advertisers and people who need reviews from your blog which means more quality incontent backlinks to your site and this will definitely affect SERP

Recently I got a request to write a review on my blog only because my blog had a top100k alexa. Also, people do this for high PR sites…

plz can some body tell me Alexa rank is important for google? and if i imporve rank in Alexa its impact on google rank also and kindly tell me also impact will b possitive or nagative?

Yes certainly Alexa Rank is important certainly it improves ranking for Google as well. Google give importance to every web page having sound visits and certainly it will leave an positive impact to google.

Alexa ranking is based on the Amount of traffic and the number of quality backlinks. Nothing more than this, any method you can adopt to increase the traffic and backlinks.

Since when has the Alexa ranking had anything to do with back links? Care to explain?

The more back links you have the higher your Alexa ranking would be. It’s because more people are visiting your site and your site traffic is increasing.

For improving your Alexa ranking first download the Alexa toolbar and use it every day to visit your own website. Alexa even gives you the ability to co-brand the toolbar with your own logo and give it away.Encourage your website visitors to add their positive testimonials on Alexa’s detailed listings page for your website. This can be done by placing a link to the appropriate Alexa page on your website and asking visitors to “Click here to rate this website”.Try to get dugg or stumbled. This will bring massive amount of traffic to your site and contributes a lot to your Alexa rank.

lots of webmasters have installed alexa toolbar so if you write webmaster related articles to attract these people then your alexa rank will reduce.

Why do you care what your Alexa ranking is? Doesn’t really mean a whole lot and it can be manipulated quite easily. I’d worry more about your search engine rankings and how much traffic you’re getting.

Anyone can manipulate Alexa rank if they want to with this and hundreds of other methods. So anyone who knows what they do is not indifferent!! Alexa means nothing unless you are trying to sell your site-I have a site that gets 300 visitors per day but focused in one country and Alexa are more than 1 million.
