    A great post. There is a debate about Alexa widget. Some people feel that it does have any impact on the blog while others feel that it does reduce ranking on a blog. Reading your post has made to decide to add the widget on my blog but do I add it on widget sidebar or header

    1. Hi Ikechi It’s nice to know that you’ve finally agreed with putting the alexa widget on your blog.
      Probably the footer is one of the best places to fix yours, although every individual is entitled to their opinion.

    Nice to see such great information about Alexa rank. I think besides blogging communities webmaster forums are also a good source of users who use alexa toolbar. As alexa counts visitor of their toolbar as valid visitor, these kind of visitors can make major boost up to any website.

    Alexa ranking is indeed chased by everyone now. I hope everyone reads your note that SERP and alexa ranking are not related.

    My advice above all you have said will be to create great articles and wait for 1 year before going to take Alexa seriously.

    Nice tips buddy. Take care. 🙂

    It’s a nice advise you’ve dropped here, as a newbie one doesn’t need to start thinking of getting a low alexa rank as this can be very frustrating and might even push you out of blogging.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  16. Hi Larry
    Usually Alexa rank of blogs on blogging niche remains impressive because community of such blogs is also bloggers who install its tool at their blog and as a result whichever blog they visit it receives the juice and its ranke move higher (lesser in count).

    It is right to say that blog post frequency helps a lot to get the rank higher but it is not rule of thumb. Many bloggers post once in a week and even once in a fortnight but they have quite impressive rank.

    Thanks a lot for one of the most perfect post on this important topic as most of us fully know the main factor an advertiser considers to issue an ad to blog is obviously its Alexa rank.

    1. Hi Mi Muba,
      It’s great to see you here, actually blogs in the blogging niche are privileged to getting a good alexa rank result, almost all their visitors are bloggers and almost every blogger if not all have the alexa toolbar installed on their browsers.

      Thanks for your spice up here.
      Do have a wonderful day ahead

  18. Alexa rank is not worth to invest precious time.
    It can be easily altered, also they are now forcing users to take a paid membership to get the data which was free previously. Lastly Amazon spies on the end user through Alexa toolbar.

  19. Hey Larry and Emmanuel,

    Thanks for writing this.

    Although i don’t pay attention to alexa. I would say concentrating on it is a waste of time and resources.

    I believe its not all about alexa but about getting results on the blog.

    Is the blog making money?

    Are my readers enjoying my writeups?

    Am i adding values to the readers?

    Am i helping people via my updates?

    That is what they call blogging.

    Anyway, i have been able to pick one or two things from here.
