8 Ways to Increase Alexa Rank

How can you increase your Alexa rank? Alexa is a subsidiary of Amazon.com. It is a ranking system based on the level of traffic a website receives from people with the Alexa toolbar installed.

You may want to increase your Alexa rank because advertisers, ad networkers use it as a gauge to determine the popularity of your blog. So if you are someone who is making money from advertising, you would definitely want to increase your alexa rank as it helps you bargain for an ad price. Sites like reviewme.com determines review price based on your Technorati rank and Alexa rank.

Increase Alexa Ranking

  1. Download Alexa toolbar free. If you are using Firefox, I recommend you to use another plug-in called SearchStatus which not only displays the Alexa rank but it also shows page rank details, no follow links, meta tags, keyword density of a page etc
  2. Put an Alexa rank widget on your blog. Each click will be counted as a visitor.
  3. Encourage your friends or colleagues to use Alexa toolbar. Explain them about the tracking system of the toolbar. Ask them to rate your Alexa website profile.
  4. Try to get dugg or stumbled. This will bring massive amount of traffic to your site and contributes a lot to your Alexa rank.
  5. Write content related to webmasters. This is because most of the webmasters use Alexa toolbar. You may write and post articles related to SEO, webmaster tools. Webmasters always look for new tools and may revisit your website to gain access to the tools. Promote your articles on webmaster forums and social networking sites.
  6. Buy links and banners from webmaster forums. A well displayed ad can bring lots of webmaster traffic to your site and boost your rank. But you need to have unique and good content on your blog to attract more and more visitors.
  7. Write about Alexa and post in your blog. Bloggers love to know about different ways of increasing their Alexa rank. This may eventually increase traffic and your rank.
  8. You may try Alexa autosurfs for a new site or blog. They may work for new sites having almost zero Alexa rank. But they are not a long term solution.

  2. deakaz says:

    Interesting post.

    However, if you copy and paste that first paragraph into google you will find it has been copied many times. I’m also fairly positive that those tips have aswell, without any changes being made to them.

    I love this blog, but think you or the team need to be careful in the future when it comes to guest posting.

  3. Chris Peterson says:

    I don’t thinks that all step will help to increase ranking.

  8. Haresh says:

    Alexa Toolbar is the best idea, I believe. And, the widget is the next best.

    I’ve been using the firefox version of it i.e. Alexa Sparky and it definitely helps increase the blog rank of sites I visit.

  9. Steve says:

    Alexa.com is full of BS! Totally unreliable page ranking system and traffic stats! Easily manipulate your page rank by downloading and installing the Alexa Toolbar then browse the pages of your own website and see your page rank improve by 50,000 or more. Unless the website is in the Top 1000, all data from Alexa is a bunch of crap! Not recommended for use as a basis for website performance whatsoever!
