Alexa rank is very important for bloggers and we always check our alexa rank regularly. Actually alexa rank is important because according to alexa, It will rank any site according to site popularity and number of visitors and number of backlinks also but all I can say is it doesn’t depend on traffic and backlinks only.
You can check March 2015 report of this blog in which i got only 1800+ visitors and at that time alexa rank of this blog was nearly equal to 100k.
Currently, Alexa rank of this blog is 89,719 worldwide(check current rank) and 3,349 in india. This rank is very hard to get for you if you don’t have it before reading this article. After reading this article, I promise your alexa rank will be improved. This are the techniques that worked for me also it worked for many other bloggers too! So, let us start with first point,
1. Niche of your blog
Yes, You will think I am mad but continue reading because i promise you will agree with me. Niche of your blog matters a lot for alexa rankings. It happens that Blog-1 is getting 1000+ visitors a day and its alexa rank is in 6-figures(100000-999999) and Blog-2 is getting 100+ visitors a day and has alexa ranking in 5-figures(10000-99999). This blog is Living example of Blog-2 type blog. Alexa rank improvement of this blog is shown below:
For example, this blog is on blogging,SEO and social media niche. It clearly means that this blog is getting bloggers and webmasters as a regular visitors. Majority of bloggers has Alexa toolbar installed in their browsers and alexa loves that blog which has visitors who has alexa widget installed in their browser. So, this blog has higher rankings. Not only this one but take any blog which is related to blogging,SEO and social media, alexa rank will be higher.
On other side, Think about any health blog. Visitors of that blogs may be a normal person, or any medical student who don’t care about alexa rankings of that blog. So, they don’t have alexa ranking toolbar installed in their browsers. So, Alexa rank of that blog will be purely dependent on traffic. Improving alexa rank quickly just by only increasing traffic is bit hard. So, if you have any blog in which you don’t get webmasters and bloggers as a visitors and your alexa rank is not higher then don’t worry about alexa.
When I was newbie in this blogging world, i was just thinking that alexa rank can be improved using traffic but after creating and selling some blogging niche sites, I came to know about this fact. So, bloggers if you think that alexa rank is dependent on only traffic then read this again 😉 . You are also blogger and has alexa ranking toolbar on your browser and currently you are on my site, Tomorrow my alexa rank will be improved more.
2. Frequently updating blog
You can’t expect higher alexa rankings if you can’t update your blog regularly with new content. In this case, niche doesn’t matters. You have to keep updating your blog to make your visitors come back on your site and to attract new visitors also.
If you will not update your blog regularly then no matter on which niche you have blog, You will lose alexa rankings. Let us take an example of my old blog which is sold currently. At it best, alexa ranking was 113xxx worldwide before 20-30 days with traffic of 50-60 visitors a day. When i sold it out, New buyer is just using its content i think and that blog is not live. It means that after getting sold, It is not updated till now or even it is not live.
Now At 5th of April 2015, Its alexa rank was 147,451. You can see that niche doesn’t matters in this case. You have to update your blog with new content as i do so that you can see improvement in alexa rankings. I recommend you to post articles steadily. For example, I have 5 articles and my aim is to improve alexa rankings with this 5 articles only. What i will do is i will post article daily(Will take 5 days) or will post on alternate days(will take 10 days) rather then posting all 5 on single day.
So, After giving 2 examples in this case only, I think you are now confirmed that updating your blog frequently will help you to get higher alexa rankings.
3. Giving backlink to alexa
Yeah, this is also a quick way to improve alexa rank. When i was working on my old blog which is currently down. I used to find different ways to improve alexa rank quickly. First of all, I found this technique on one blog whose name is now not remembered by me.
I thought let us try this technique also, So what i did is i wrote one article on alexa rankings and after that i also saw improvement in alexa rank of my blog. So, this technique also worked for me and I recommend you to use this technique to get your alexa rank higher quickly.
This technique is recommend by many bloggers and this worked for me. So, Try this and from this article, I also gave backlink to alexa. Can’t believe, Just check 2nd paragraph, 1st line or see below given image 😉 .
