Bloggernoob dot com used to have an awesome Alexa rank. I was hoovering around 50k. But now, my alexa can barely maintain under 150k. I check out other blogs in my niche and i noticed that their Alexa Rank fell too. What’s going on with Alexa? I know that they recently changed the way they calculate the rank. Are they targeting “make money online” blogs? Do you guys knows what the deal is?
Internet ranking systems are not accurate but necessary for blog monetization. This blog has more traffic and links then ever, but is suffering in the Alexa rank. Why is that? Google PR can magically appear and disappear with every update. Technorati misses a lot of links to you site and compete and quantcast are just ridiculous.
Can any body come up with an accurate ranking system? It’ll probably never happen because the internet is filled with people trying to game the system. There are way too many spam sites and hackers. The best way to measures a site is by looking at a composite of all the different ranking and link measuring charts.
