Okay! As bloggers, the two major things that show marketers, business owners and other cooperate bodies how successful your blog is, are; Google page rank (PR) and Alexa rank. If your blog can have a good PR and or a better Alexa rank, your blog will have more business opportunities than you’ll ever imagine 🙂
But you just can’t get a high PR or a Best Alexa ranking without climbing the ladder gradually. And how do I mean climbing the ladder gradually? You need to build yourself quality traffic streams, have friends and your blog readers share your content on social media and elsewhere…
Reason for the post
Now, a friend was truly anxious to know how the Alexa ranking system works. Because he is running a mobile site and he gets 500+ unique visitors per day. But the thing is, most of his visitors visit his site through operamini, ucbrowser and other mobile web browsers. We all know that mobile browsers don’t have the facility to use the Alexa toolbar right?

Even with his good amount of traffic, his ranking is still not dropping the way he planned it would be. So he wondered 🙁
Sometime back, he approached me and ask me a question – “Baba, how does alexa rank truly work?” believe it or not, that’s a lovely question to ask, or don’t you think?
I would have given him the answer right there, but I decide to make it my next post, why? Because I truly want you guys to contribute to the post, so he’ll truly know more about the Alexa ranking and from your own point, how it truly works.
Aside him, I know that many people out there are also trying to learn how the alexa ranking system truly works…
But first, let me talk some more about the Google PR and the Alexa Ranking…
What is the best way to increase your blog’s PR
You know, I read somewhere that in other to get a good PR, you must have some good amount of traffic, get enough social signals and your blog should also be lively. Yes! These are the key ingredient to increase your blog PR.
In reality, if you want to simply increase your blog’s homepage Google Page Rank;
- Allow it to be shared across social platforms: If you are using WordPress, try adding social plugins or if you are using blogger blog, try adding some good social bar to your blog,
- Let people talk about your blog: Try to make your blog as engaging as possible, create post that people will love to share and refer other people to, create that lovely post that other bloggers would love to link back to.
- Push traffic to it: You don’t need to have 50,000+ visitors per day before you can have an increase in Page rank, as long as you have a reasonable amount of traffic that can help you with the above tips, you are good to go 🙂 .
Try the above tips and I assure you that you will have an increase in page rank.
Sometime, when you check your blog posts, you will discover that some of your contents have a higher PR when you compare it with your homepage. That is because those contents get more social shares and engagements.
To increase your Page Rank, you don’t need to have extra tools or to be that seo expert. Thank God, Google have made it easy for us 🙂
How can we increase our alexa rank?
I also read that in other to increase my alexa ranking, I will need to do some few things, which are;
- Install the alexa toolbar
- Have people, your blog readers do a review of your blog over at alexa’s site
- Create a custom toolbar and give your readers to download
- Locate communities of bloggers that uses the toolbar, so your rank will increase if they visit you.
Those are the things i need to do if I want to get my alexa ranking to a favorable spot – at least, that’s what I read, right? 🙂 .
Now if you watch, you will see that in other to get your rank up, you must have their toolbar installed. And also, the people who visit your blog need to have the toolbar installed as well. Why? Because, they give ranking based on the record their toolbar sends out.
If you create two blogs on two different categories (niche) – let’s say the “making money” niche and the “house sales” niche, you will discover that the making money niche site will have a better Alexa rank than that of the House sales niche, even if the House sales niche is getting more traffic than the Making money niche.
The reason is simply because; people who will be visiting the making money niche sites are bloggers or entrepreneurs who wants to make money online. And you know almost all bloggers (if not all) have the Alexa toolbar installed on their browsers.
How does Alexa rank truly work?
Now to make my subject more clearly to you guys, let me ask you the same question as I was asked; how does Alexa truly work? Is it only when people review your blog on their site, install their toolbar on your browser and the browsers of your visitors, or is it something not mentioned here? I truly need to know!
