Probably, you already know this little secret among bloggers and online writers -- that there's one best way to improve a blog's Alexa traffic rank (TR). If you still don't, then this post is for you.
No, I'll not be talking about back links nor about quality content. Instead, I'm telling you now to put the Alexa widget in your blog. Wait after 2 weeks or 1 month and you will see favorable results for your site. Some bloggers say that this tool makes it easier for Alexa to monitor the traffic coming to your site. Without it, Alexa will not recognize the activities in your blog.
To get a smaller number for your blog is what you should aim for, i.e., if you care about your site's performance. If you don't, it's not really a problem.
It will take a little while before you'll achieve a 6-digit or a 5-digit TR (new blogs usually have 7-digit or 8-digit figures). Google's Alexa rank is 1; Yahoo's rank, 4.
You will notice that after receiving a dramatic change in your blog's TR, it will reach a plateau. I actually had this feeling that my blog would stay forever at 2,443,794, but I was wrong. Now it has a 2,394,919-Alexa TR.
The most important thing for you to do is to take the first step in improving your site's ranking by getting the Alexa Traffic Widget.
