How does my Alexa rank get reduced day by day?

This post explains “How does my Alexa rank get reduced daily” for my readers and newbie bloggers.

The current Alexa rank of my blog is under 70K and it is reducing day by day which is a good sign.

I started this blog in the month of January this year. Till now I have written up to 42 posts and have contributed 14 guest posts for same niche blogs. Few days back, I even updated my Facebook timeline with a statement – “Completed 40 posts with 80K Alexa rank in six months – I feel great”.

I was humbled with the number of Facebook likes, wishes and messages from my blogging friends and influential bloggers. I even received few personal messages asking me “how you got good Alexa Rank?” and also “Are you specially doing any tricks to get it?” and so on. My only reply to the second question was a big “No”.

Yes, I am not implementing any specific trick to attain good Alexa rank. Few of the newbie bloggers questioned me “What you used to do after publishing your blog post?” I summarized my activities briefly to them but decided that I should describe it in an elaborate manner to my readers.

I am not going to provide any tips to my readers to improve the Alexa ranking, but would share answers to the question – “How does my Alexa rank get reduced day by day?

If you are a regular reader of my blog, then you might be aware of my favorite style of starting from basics. Yes, here, even in this blog post too!

  13. Absolutely brilliant. You made this so wonderful by providing very easy steps to increasing ones’ ranking. I’ve had my rank reduce only to have some issues that kept it out blogging for a while. It has really increased on a sad side but I’m ready to get it all back to reducing once again. I’d surely use this post as a reference. Thanks for this great work Nirmala

      Yeah, i used to take care of my every blog post in such way that it should be useful for my readers.

      Stay tuned here to have a look @ the magical articles 😉

  16. Though the Alexa ranking may not be such an accurate score due to their information gathering methods in ranking any site, it is mainly a measure for improvement and advertisers really consider it in choosing whether to advertise on a site or not. I can see you have achieved a lot in just few months of blogging, the lower it gets the more competitive it becomes. I will advise you intensify your efforts even more so as to be among the first 10k before the end of the year.

  17. I don’t really give much importance to the alexa rank. I do check the alexa rank of most of the blog I’m visiting but that’s just the number. Sometimes, a blog receiving thousands of visitors may have 2L alexa rank and vice-versa.

    I’m already following most of the points that you’ve mentioned. That’s probably the reason why my alexa rank is so low.

    You have written a great post. Guest posting is one of the best way which will help you in lowering the alexa rank of your website. I also am trying to lower my alexa ranking by guest posting at various forums and moreover you also get backlinks with the same method. Thanks for providing a great article. I will try other methods too.

    woah. as of this commenting, your post received around 100 responses

    i want to blog consistently but i cannot do so since i do not have a nanny yet for my two year old son so the responsibility of taking care of him lies on me. i can only focus on commenting on other blogs and create a few short articles. i really miss creating huge lists of info for my readers (e.g. 110plus commentluv enabled blogs)

  20. Hello ma’am,
    Well while I was reading your article I got confused with your statement “That my Alexa is reducing from 75k”, and I was like…how can this be too cool for any blogger. Then I thought mathematically that Oh..!! Here the blog fame is inversely proportional to the Alexa ranking.
    Jokes apart, to built such a quick and remarkable ranking in such a competition is not any easy task to do.
    Bookmarking your post. :)
    Thanks a lot for sharing this secret.

  21. Wow, congratulations. Both your blog and our blog are of the same age. We started our blog on 1st of January, and we’ve published more than 100 posts (or to be exact, 5 articles in average for every week).

    I personally use Alexa as my personal target. By knowing that my Alexa ranking is lowering, I know my blog is getting better and better.

  22. I normally don’t focus a lot on Alexa. I haven’t installed the Alexa widget on my blog.

    So assume I get 10000 visitors who don’t have an Alexa toolbar installed it won’t reduce my alexa rank. (health niche)

    On the other hand if I blog about technology (most technology geeks have Alexa toolbars) and around 100 visit my site, my alexa rank will see great improvements
