In this post I am going to share 12 tips to increase Alexa rank. Some people considered Alexa as the only authority to judge the quality of your site, specially bloggers give much importance to Alexa but in my personal view it is not an only judge to measure the quality of your blog because I realize that there are many blogs which have high traffic and quality and content but their Alexa rank is poor, but at the advertisement point of view Alexa is important. Many advertisers would reject you because of poor Alexa ranking therefore if you want to get direct ads for your blog then you must need to improve your website Alexa ranking. After making a blog the next step for blogger is to write quality content at his blog and after that the bloggers wants to get traffic to his blog therefore he is using different techniques to attract visitors. To improve Alexa ranking traffic is necessary because it is the big factor which Alexa uses to rank your website at by analyzing through various sources.
What is Alexa Rank?
Alexa is an information company founded by Brewster Kahle and Bruce Gilliat, Alexa is owned by Amazon. Alexa gives information about websites by analyzing their traffic, by the content which the website published and some other factors. Alexa receives information from Alexa toolbar, Alexa gives a widget and a toolbar, you have to install widget in your website and toolbar into your browser. Alexa will rank you based on bounce rate, for how much time visitors stay at your website and how many page views a website got.
Claiming your website is the first step towards improving your Alexa ranking, you can get control of your site at Alexa if you claim the ownership of your website. It will help you to increase your rank at Alexa. Alexa has many plans for website owners, if your site is new and have not huge traffic then select free plan but if your site has huge traffic or a business website then I would suggest you to go for Alexa Pro Plan. You can edit your site details there. If you want to get certified ownership then Alexa will not allow you with a free plan.
Second and another easiest way to improve your site ranking is to keep Alexa widget , with the help of this widget you would see that your site ranking is improving in only few days, I observed this when my friend install this widget at his blog then his blog ranking improve from 340,000 to 235,000 in only few days. Therefore I also have this widget for my blog.
Another best way to increase your rank is to use the Alexa toolbar in the browser and ask your friend to download this toolbar at their browsers. This toolbar is free to download, with the help of this toolbar you can analyze your blog with your competitors . The toolbar will also show your world Alexa ranking and your country Alexa ranking.
A Review about Alexa is another proved way to improve your Alexa ranking, you have to write an honest review about Alexa and you must have a link in your blog post to Alexa.
There is a review option for websites and blogs at Alexa where your readers and bloggers can submit a review about your blog, so ask your readers, friends and bloggers to write a review about your blog. This trick also worked well for the bloggers and they increase their ranking in few days.
Another thing which help you to increase your is backlinks from directories which is relevant to your niche because alexa would also track your sites backlinks like Google track your backlinks to rank your website at search engine.
I personally do not like traffic exchange sites because its seems little immoral to me for bloggers because with the help of traffic exchange sites you would only reach only few visitors and they visits your website again and again to get more credits. Traffic exchange sites also have many disadvantages which you have to keep in mind when using. But with traffic exchange sites you can improve your Alexa rank and you can also improve your site bounce rate.
Fresh content is very important for the health of your blog you have to feed your blog with daily fresh posts, readers like the blog which updates daily and with fresh content. Google rank your site high at search engine if you are updating your blog regularly. Try to give respect to time and publish post at fix time, it would not only increase your readership and bounce rate but will also increase your Alexa rank.
When you sit to write a blog post then you must keep in mind your readers that which type of content they wants from you, always try to give a unique and quality content to your readers. Your every post would be a best one. If you lose quality then automatically you would lose readership which will result in decrease in Alexa ranking.
Social Media is a big weapon for bloggers and internet marketers to promote their content. Be active in social media and interact with your followers as much as possible, share your best and new blog posts there at one of the best social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, stumble upon, Digg and Pinterest. This way you will receive maximum visitors and your content would be share by your users and it will increase your community and your readership as well as your Alexa ranking.
Commenting on other blogs will not only increase your readership and Google page rank but also increase your Alexa ranking because Alexa also tracks your backlinks so always tried to get backlinks from the similar niche websites and websites which have high page rank. Approximately all blogger use this proven trick.
If you are new to blogging and have a low Alexa rank and low readership then starts guest blogging it will help you a lot to get targeted followers and will increase your rank. Try to write for blogs which has same niche and try to write quality posts as you write at your own blog. With guest blogging you will receive backlinks from the blog where you write a post, Also allow other bloggers in your niche who want to write guest post at your blog. You will see with these backlinks your blog Alexa ranking will improve in only few days.
