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!

What is Alexa rank?

Alexa is a web information company which gives rank for blogs based on its health and traffic. Lower the number, better the Alexa ranking.

What have I done to get good Alexa Rank?

* Once my blog was set up, I registered in Alexa.com and added my blog to it.

* I have installed Alexa widget on my blog and added the Alexa toolbar too in my browser.

* I maintain a consistency of publishing 2-3 posts per week. I create unique posts and a WordPress PluginSEO by Yoast” helps me to publish the optimized blog posts.

* I’ve written simple Alexa reviews for my preferred blogs and request my lovely blogging friends to do the same for me.

* After publishing my post, I use Ping site named Pingler.com to tell the search engines that I have got a new post in my blog.

* I update the FB and G+ fan page with my new blog post.

* I make it a point to share the post in social networking and social bookmarking websites like FB groups, Twitter, Pinterest, Stumble upon, LinkedIn groups, Reddit and Delicious.

* I understand the benefits of participating in blogging communities and so I stay active in Blokube, Indiblogger and Bizsugar. Recently I joined in Triberr too.

* I have a good list of Dofollow and Comment luv enabled blogs with which I work on blog commenting.

* I continue to contribute my worthy guest posts on good PR blogs (at least 3 per month).

* I usually inspire my visitors to leave their valuable thoughts through the comment section with my blog posts and by replying to each comment with enthusiasm.

* I never forget to share the valuable blog posts on my social networks.

Yes, I have the toll bar but I now rarely take a look at it, though I know that it’s gradually dropping for me and so has the PR rank improved – I guess once you know all is well, you don’t worry much

      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 😉

  32. 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.

    • Many thanks for your advice Nwosu, sure will try my best as you told.

      Am pleased with your views related to Alexa rank, hope this adds value to my post.

      Keep coming here to leave your valuable suggestions :)

  33. Hey nirmala glad to see your alexa getting increased day by day as advertisers always gives importance for advertisement and thanks for sharing your strategies

  34. 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.

    • Thanks for speaking your views related to Alexa rank Pawan.

      I too like you, not giving much importance to Alexa, but it is improving regularly,

      Its good that you are doing some genuine blogging activities like mine, keep it up!

  35. Varun Saini

    Hi Nirmala,

    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.

  36. marilyn cada

    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)

  37. This is simply a nice job well done. I see you’ve been working so hard on your blog and it has paid in the long run. Thanks for this article, it would serve as an encouragement to newbie bloggers.

  38. 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.

    Regards
    Charmie

  39. Hi Nirmala,

    Read your post for the second time today. Don’t know how I missed commenting here ;P

    Feels great to see you improving your Alexa continually, it’s now on 65K! Great achievement!

    Because Alexa, Google PR and DomainAuthority are the most important metric for any blogger to monetize blogs, it is good to attempt improving them.

    • Its ok, Suresh! it happens sometimes.

      Am feeling good to get the appreciation comment for my Alexa rank and am not doing anything specific to improve it. But it is good!.

      Thanks for your boosting comment :)

  40. 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.

    • Thanks for sharing your blogging and Alexa history with me.

      5 posts per week? Seems good and hope you are a full time and professional blogger.

      Am a part time blogger and taking the time out for blogging :)

  41. Thank you for sharing what you did to get a good Alexa ranking. I also implement a lot of the things that you do. I’m glad to see that your score has gone up. Keep up the good work!

  42. that’s really awesome. but do joining sites like tiberrr and blokube really help you to increase your blog community or not. Just want to know this :)

  43. Hi Nirmala , you clearly explain me why Alexa is important for bloggers. I had joined social media websites to increase my blog traffic. Triberr, blokube , blogster are my favorite communities for promotion.

  44. Nameste Nirmala Ji!

    Thank you for your amazing guidance, I am a newbie blogger and i have been doing extensive reading to maximize my effort with every single step.

    Piyush

  45. i am now trying to decrease my alexa rank. as you know it is important to get some adviretisement banners. anyway, thanks for the great post. it will be very useful for me.

  46. 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

  47. hi nirmala madam,
