How I Gave My Alexa Rank A Boost

Alexa Rank is something that many people are split down the middle over. Some people believe it is of no relevance and just as many people believe that it helps to show potential advertisers the level of traffic your site generates.

About four months ago I started a small case study to see if I could increase the Alexa rank of my blogs. I used five blogs, this blog and four blogs that started the study with an Alexa rank of 0. I’m going to concentrate on the latter four for this post.

Start of Month 1

http://best-american-law-firms.info – Original Rank – No Rank
http://www.best-student-loan-blog.info Original Rank – No Rank
http://eastlondonhosting.co.uk/blog/ Original Rank – No Rank
http://www.info-about-mesothelioma.info Original Rank – No Rank

Although I had these domains for a while, I had only been posting sparingly on them and thus their PR and Alexa rank were at 0. I decided that I was going to start doing the following:

– Posting at least once a day on all of the blogs.
– Install the Alexa rank Toolbar on my browser.
– Install the Alexa rank widget on the blogs.
– Exchange links with all the blogs.

End of Month 1

http://best-american-law-firms.info – 25,976,098
http://www.best-student-loan-blog.info – 25,779,819
http://eastlondonhosting.co.uk/blog/ – 25,990,519
http://www.info-about-mesothelioma.info – 25,498,803

This was actually a bit of a cheat, month 1 was only two weeks long. I wasn’t sure what to expect at the end of the month, but I was rather pleased to see that all my blogs now had Alexa rank, it may be really high but it’s a start.

End of Month 2

http://best-american-law-firms.info – 1,725,777
http://www.best-student-loan-blog.info – 1,973,714
http://eastlondonhosting.co.uk/blog/ – 1,913,225
http://www.info-about-mesothelioma.info – 1,986,270

Wow just look at that, all I did was post at least once a day and I have increased my Alexa rank on all the blogs by about 90% and on top of that I found out that Google had given three of those blogs a PR3 rating and one of them a PR1 rating.

End of Month 3

http://best-american-law-firms.info – 965,160
http://www.best-student-loan-blog.info – 1,085,900
http://eastlondonhosting.co.uk/blog/ – 1,053,814
http://www.info-about-mesothelioma.info – 1,487,190

Another month goes by where I continue posting at least once a day and I see my blogs rising up by around 700k-800k. My mesothelioma blog isn’t rising as fast because I don’t post every day on that blog. The amount of content you post certainly plays a factor.

End of Month 4

http://best-american-law-firms.info – 747,405
http://www.best-student-loan-blog.info – 915,255
http://eastlondonhosting.co.uk/blog/ – 982,148
http://www.info-about-mesothelioma.info – 1,220,984

Well after the fourth month I have seen each blog rise up over 24,000,000 places and apart from the mesothelioma blog all my blogs are under the 1,000,000 rank. Having the widget on the blog, the toolbar on my browser and posting regular are all certainly major factors.

And all I did was:

– Posting at least once a day on all of the blogs.
– Install the Alexa rank Toolbar on my browser.
– Install the Alexa rank widget on the blogs.
– Exchange links with all the blogs.

I did not do any promoting with these blogs AT all.

Installing the Alexa widget and toolbar is certainly worth considering if you ask me. :)
