What is the Alexa Rank?

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) –

Improve Alexa ranking

To improve Alexa rank up to a point, just follow these simple steps:

1. Add Alexa Site Widget: As I said you need to let Alexa know about your blog, so what better way you can find than adding an Alexa site widget at your sidebar which let Alexa know about your pages when your visitors access them. Just put this widget and will assure you your Alexa rank will definitely be improved. If you wish to hide the Alexa widget from displaying on your site, you can do that too, by modifying the code. Search for this on the internet, and you will get the answer. UPDATE: Alexa widgets have been retired as of October 2016.

2. Install the Alexa toolbar: This also serves the same purpose as the Alexa site widget, as it sends information of a particular page to Alexa. It is available for various browsers on the Alexa website.

3. Encourage others to use the Alexa toolbar: But like Alexa site widget which is available on each page and is helpful when a page is loaded either by you or your visitor, Alexa toolbar doesn’t serve the same purpose. It is helpful only when most of your visitor uses it. So encourage your visitors to use the Alexa toolbar.

4. Get reviews: Ask your friend and visitors to write a short review of your blog at Alexa, this will also help to improve Alexa ranking. You can use Alexa review widget for this.

5. Claim your Site: Claim ownership of your site to easily update your site information and engage your users by responding to reviews of your site.
