If I’m going to advertise in a blog, other than page visits and views, I will check their 3 ranks. They are PageRank, Technorati Rank and Alexa Rank. Now in this article I’ll share some tips to improve the Alexa rank of your blog. When I started HB, it’s Alexa rank was around 700k and now it is around 70k (and now it is 10K). Credits go to you people only. Thank You!
What’s the use of Alexa Rank?
Webmasters, advertisers and ad networks use your blog’s Alexa rank to determine the worth of a link on your website. Advertisers and other people approach you after seeing your blog’s Alexa rank. Fortunately, I experienced these things. Even BuySellAds (BSA) approves only if you have a good Alexa rank.
Tips for improving your blog’s Alexa rank
#1 – Use Toolbar : Install Alexa Toolbar. Alexa currently has toolbar for IE and Firefox only, hard luck for Chrome and Opera users. Now set your blog as homepage in both the browsers. You can do this in your relatives and friends house or even in browsing centers. You can also download and install HBB Alexa Toolbar.
#2 – Use Widget : Many blog owners found this tip useful. Placing Alexa Rank Widget in your blog helps a lot. But it is worth trying.
#3 – Consistency : Alexa rank automatically improves if you update your blog frequently with good contents. Update your blog daily for a better Alexa rank.
#4 – Write About Alexa : Many bloggers love to learn the tips for improving Alexa rank. They’ll link to you and send you targeted traffic. It is better to keep ‘Alexa’ as a category or a tag.
#5 – Reviews And Ratings : Some bloggers claim this tip has something to do with Alexa rank. Try to increase reviews and ratings for your Alexa website profile. You are most welcome to write one for HB.
#6 – Update Info : Update your listing data and blog’s site info using their Self-service tools. It gives a professional touch to it.
#7 – Claim The Blog : Create an Alexa account or use your existing Facebook account and claim your blog. You can verify by uploading a text file or using a meta tag code.
Though many people don’t believe in Alexa rankings, it is still ruling the blogosphere.
