What is Alexa Ranking?
Alexa is another tool that can help you to recognize and analyze your website’s SEO rankings. It is an amazon.com company which ranks your website based on how much traffic you are getting. The lower the numbered ranking you have, the better. A ranking of 100,000 or less is considered a good ranking.
Alexa may not always be the most accurate SEO tool, so I highly recommend only using it with other tools, such as page rank, links, google analytics, yahoo site explorer, etc. However, Alexa can give you a good impression of your initial visitor traffic total and is very easy and helpful to use when comparing several websites traffic.
You can look up your alexa ranking by downloading the alexa toolbar or on the alexa.com website.
3 Simple Tips for improving your Alexa Ranking
- Write Unique Content!
(good content=more visitors=better alexa ranking)
- Spread the Word.
Use social media, social bookmarks, directories, and overall optimization to get your site out there.
- Write More Content, More Often.
The more you write, the more you are going to be likely to have an optimized website, more people are going to be likely to visit your website because you are giving them good information, and therefore your alexa will improve. The more content you put out there, the higher the stats of people who could/will visit your site.
