Steps to Increase Alexa Rank

A site becomes popular only when it gains more volume of traffic to its site. More traffic to your site will get you ranks from Google and Alexa. Plenty of people think that having a Page Rank from Google is the most important thing, but the truth is having both Alexa and Google rank is the best way to become a popular site. A site with PR 0 or 1 with Alexa rank less than 100k is more valued than a site with PR 3 0r 4 with alexa rank more than 1000k.

Before we get started with the 10 methods, we l define what alexa ranks is, as there are plenty of new bloggers, publishers are joining lately and this post would be benefit for new users as well.

The traffic rank is based on three months of aggregated historical traffic data from millions of Alexa Toolbar users and is a combined measure of page views and users (reach). As a first step, Alexa computes the reach and number of page views for all sites on the Web on a daily basis.The main Alexa traffic rank is based on the geometric mean of these two quantities averaged over time (so that the rank of a site reflects both the number of users who visit that site as well as the number of pages on the site viewed by those users)-

1) Good link worthy posts – You may publish 100 posts, but some 2 to 3 post can drive you more traffic to your site. So it is important to write link worthy posts, so that people often visit your site for your content

2) Install alexa tool bar – Visit the site and install their toolbar to your browser. So every time you visit a site you can see their alexa rank. Through which you can comment on high alexa rank sites, which will help you to gain more traffic as well as generate links

7) Pay per click – Buying campaigns from advertisers like Google search engine will drive you more traffic.

8) Concentrate on your country first- Alexa measures a total rank as well as separate ranks for every country. So it is a must you concentrate on topics which drives your country people.

9) Title Tags- Post your title in such a way, so that the visitors search matches your title tag

10) All said and done – From the top to bottom of the post you must have seen only two or three important words i.e. Traffic, links, visitors. Comment on high pr site like CNN, Engadget, Hufftingtonpost,Mashable etc..
