Love it when Alexa updates

alexa.jpgAre you guys happy with your new Alexa update? I am! My humble blog is now 300k. Pretty soon i’ll be in the five digit ranks. I think it’ll be a tough climb from that point but coming this far hasn’t been that hard. It just goes to show that most bloggers don’t really work on their sites.

There are certain tricks you can do to speed up your climb on alexa.

1. Download the alexa toolbar and set your blog as the homepage.
2. Whenever possible use the alexa redirect just replace my URL with your own.
3. Place the alexa redirect to your URL on other people’s sites. Whenever you leave your link, try to leave it as the redirect to your site. I recently did that on my youtube page.
4. Keeping posting on your blog. The most posts you have, the most traffic you’ll get. Not really a trick. Just your plain, old fashioned, vanilla, missionary position way to increase your alexa rank.

    You get paid for your regular blog? Or is it for certain topics or even elsewhere?
    I’m not sure my blog has a wide interest base.
    It’s kind of a niche thing.

    Hi, yes I was pleased to get below the 1 million mark on Alexa! Still a long way to go, but in under two months I’ve also travelled a long way too!

    At lease, I feel with Alexa, I have realistic goals to aim for. Google page rank is another thing altogether!

    witchypoo- You get paid for any type of blog. You can still find posting gigs for you niche, or find something similar and take the opportunity.

    I have found that it is pretty easy to get under the 1 million mark just by going through the normal actions of editing and publishing posts, including surfing around my own blog occasionally when I’m trying to find a post to link back to from a current post.

    I’m using the Firefox Search Status extension, and it seems to work pretty well for crediting page views at Alexa even though I haven’t been really trying to “game” the system lately.

    My Alexa rank has consistently stayed in the 300,000 to 400,000 range for the last few months, and I get very little traffic other than what comes from my SEO efforts (mostly Google search traffic, and most of these visitors probably don’t have the toolbar installed). I haven’t done the redirect trick yet; it seems like kind of a “grey hat” thing that might annoy some people, but it might work for things like forum signatures.

    Create Rss Feed is a 100% free service that allows you to convert partial RSS feeds into full text RSS feeds. It is currently the most used website for people who want to view full text RSS feeds and for autobloggers.

    Hi there, a very good read and it sometimes just takes someone to post something like this to make me realise where I’ve been going wrong! Just added the site to my bookmarks so will check back now and then. Cheers.

    This turned into quite helpful – at the beginning I didn’t agree with this although the end it proved to be incredible. Great for every man and woman … if you think that this data was not enough, read it again and you will definitely see.

    Your article was hands down an excellent read & I enjoy good content on the net because alot of it’s unoriginal. I recognize that in the area of site content it’s pretty much King in the case of getting a site ranked and so on (most likely why I found this). I have made some webpages now and am working on an internet mini jobs marketplace type deal made for members to visit and buy and sell services to other users. So I have to spend some time on getting some article content and other stuff on there and so forth. Anyway take it easy and continue handing out well written posts.
