Alexa just updated about two days ago and BloggerNoob dot com has now broken the 50k mark. The Noob is the owner of a Alexa 49,237 blog. Woohoo. But this doesn’t mean much. I’ll tell you why.
Although Alexa is the most popular ranking system for websites, it is very inaccurate. It can easily be gamed and manupalited. For example, i’ve looked over the entrecard popular blogs and i noticed that all of them have great alexa rankings. I visit these blogs and see nothing special. These bloggers just spend a lot of time dropping cards and putting ads on other popular entrecard blogs. But this works. It works cause the people who are on entrecard all have the Alexa toolbar installed. So every time an entrecard blogger comes to drop on their site. They get some more alexa juice. These popular entrecard blogs depend on the fickle and high bounce rate traffic of entrecard. It’s a good way to build up ranking and it’s cool that they get a lot of traffic. But if that’s their main source of traffic, these sites will eventually fall. I’m sure Graham over at entrecard has plans to limit these power droppings.
If you’re a noob blogger and are looking to build up your alexa ranking. Get on entrecard and become a power dropper. Buy some entrecard credits and start advertising on the popular blogs. It will get you a lot of useless hits. And that will get your alexa ranking up. I can almost gaurantee it.
