by Lisa Stewart: Increase Traffic By Blogging
I have tried this on a few sites and without fail all of the sites Alexa ranking went up significantly. I am going to try here.
I have just moved the site over to this sever as well as revamped an energized it in last month … so will be a good opportunity.
One of the techniques used to manipulate Alexa traffic ranking is placing the Alexa Traffic Rank button on your site. I have no REAL evidence that it works. I know that sites I placed the tool on went up- but that could be any number of factors.
Get Better Alexa Rankings
Looks like this:
At the time of this posting, November 4, 2007 the Alexa ranking is 1,508,140 . And yes, this is a crappy number, especially for a site that is owned by a site owner specializes in rankings. I neglected this domain for a long time and then moved it and basically starting from scratch. Will be a good opportunity to implement techniques and see how they are working in real time.
Why should you care about Alexa? I am not sure if you should, but I know some advertisers do- so at worst you should be aware of its existence and its impact. Alexa is supposed to measure traffic to your site. Not what kind or targeted just plain traffic. Some advertisers think that more traffic is always better. As value is a perception and not a real thing then a good ranking in Alexa can mean more money for you.
I have found than you can manipulate and get a higher Alexa ranking if the Alexa’s developer widget, Alexa Traffic Ranking tool is installed. You can get your own here: http://www.alexa.com/site/site_stats/signup. Takes about 2 minutes or less to do.

What’s Your ranking? Would love sites to post when they first install the Alexa Traffic Ranking Widget . Just post your site name, URL , date and current traffic rank below. Let us know what results you have.
I think I may post a page just for this purpose…
