Is Alexa Rank Important To You?
« on: 11-06-2011, 20:29:31 »
hi all,

Just need to hear your thoughts around Alexa ranking and its importance to you as SEO.

For me, Alexa rank is a great intelligence tool for positioning your web site in your niche.

While page rank shows importance, alexa rank shows popularity.
Together, makes more accurate measures for your web site.

In my point of view i never give to much importance. Although alexa ranking is getting popular in the seo field but personally i don't work at the sites just to improve the alexa rank of my sites. Alexa rank will improve day by day automatically when your site will get popular and have backlinks.

1) starts showing Alexa ranking chart when you get into the top 100k sites.
2) it feels a lot better than having a 6-digit range.
3) At the top only 100 000 100 000 sites are there. So it's quite an achievement.
4) sold 25k Alexa top 100 000 list of sites, and so on. Now these lists are also giving away a free download. Several companies through these lists, generate business opportunities and buying advertising. If your site is in the list, then you can create additional revenue streams for you. Moreover, it can also bring opportunities to appear on TV. or media.
5) If you have a site with less than 100 000 Alexa ranking then people will buy more advertising on their website.
6) A blog with good Alexa ranking gets more subscribers and comments, as most people think that sites with fewer rows than Alexa for high traffic.
7) A site with a good forum for Alexa ranks get more members, and members will also be posted as they expect one more referral traffic from their own sites, through their links posted on this forum site.
8.) Some advertising networks also give importance to the ranks of Alexa. It also offers some are reserved only for the good Alexa ranking of web sites.
9) The lack of other parameters on the basis of Web site traffic by external means is also a reason why Alexa rank is used.
10) is very popular and do not forget that his company Amazon.com.
Alexa changes its algorithm sometimes backwards, which changed several rows website.
Here are some good things about this change.
1) Install the Alexa toolbar and visit your pages often do not influence their ranks as much as I used to. Alexa currently does not reveal other ways in which you are calculating your statistics.
2) All the blogs that say that Alexa ranks manipulation is easy to have its own ranks in millions!
3) Auto Scripts etcpara Alexa ranks manipulation no longer work.
If you like Alexa or hate them useful or misleading, you simply can not ignore.
We suggest that you use our services Alexage to improve Alexa ranking, and start enjoying more sales and more income from your blog, or web store.

I never bother about Alexa ranking. This performance metric is not accurate... Its mere a rank allotted on the basis of Alexa traffic (visitors with Alexa toolbar on their system)
There are many other important metric in this world to worry about.

This is a ranking system set by alexa.com (a subsidiary of amazon.com) that basically audits and makes public the frequency of visits on various Web sites. The algorithm according to which Alexa traffic ranking is calculated, is simple. It is based on the amount of traffic recorded from users that have the Alexa toolbar installed over a period of three months. This traffic is based on such parameters as reach and page views.

Alexa rank important when one wants to know the present situation of the traffic to the site. And its just the numeric value provided by the tool so that numeric value is not the perfect. Ya its true that it can help to make strategy whether build the more traffic or do the work as do currently.

Nope, Alexa rank means nothing. All it is is a 3 month average of visitors/traffic. Higher Alexa rank = More traffic.

The only times when Alexa rank should be considered important, is when:

A. Buying banner advertising slots (more eyes on your ads)
B. Posting a great guest post (more potential visitors, aka "traffic-jacking")

Alexa rank is nothing to do with the SEO. It automatically improve once you get regular visitor.......It keeps increasing and decreasing with the amount of traffic. However, some organic seo services provider company thinks that it is important as it provide the clear picture where our website is standing as compared with the other website available on the globe.....
