Alexa traffic rankings losing its importance



Perhaps the truth. I did not check my alexa rank until I was applying blog reviews at reviewme. When I checked, it was saying some 2,148,879.I did not expect that. Fairly I get around 100 unique visitors a day. I was not surprised to find that almost 1,000,000 sites ranked above my site were a fraud and they were not near to get around 50 unique visitors.

The reason is simple.

Alexa is not giving due importance to sites ranked above 100,000. They just calculate it on the basis of visitors to that site who have alexa toolbar installed.

Alexa toolbar uses an ActiveX control which is not supported by Firefox. Its I think only supported by IE.

Only 50 % of current Net population use IE. Out of those I think around 10% -5% might have installed the Alexa toolbar{Or even low!}. Your site may hardly get a visitor with Alexa toolbar installed. So how would you get a low rank?

Now Webmasters are taking the advantage of it. They just install the toolbar or ask their friend/network and visit their own site daily. This results in a fair increase of their rankings

I tried it myself .My ranking increased from around 2,148,879 to 1,515,890 in just two days for about 5 pageloads of my site.

The picture above says that If I continue to visit my site like that, I'll get a rank of around 70,000{or even less ? :-)}

So you can increase your traffic rankings simply by visiting your own site and having the toolbar installed or ask your friend to do so. And interestingly this now has become a booming business. I saw a site which promised my Alexa traffic rank around 100,000 if I pay them 500$.I’m surely not going to do that.

I don’t think after this system has been discovered Alexa rankings should be given importance for ranking a site.

  3. As we know SEO is search engine optimization. This is done to improve ranking in the search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN, Alexa etc. A client looks for the ranking on the first page with relevant keywords from SEO work. The website coming on first page with relevant keywords is easily noticeable by a visitor and thus can fetch ROI. In SEO Content also plays a major role. Virtual Studio Pvt Ltd also provides SEO services. In the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) world, search engine rankings speak for themselves! If an SEO company can rank its own site on the first page of SEO search results, that company has already demonstrated its professional effectiveness. As you may notice that we rank on the first page in Google with keywords like IPTV services India, live demand streaming services India, etc. Virtual Studio has enabled its clients to be on the first page with keywords like business hotels in Gurgaon, budget hotels in Chennai, etc.

  8. Everyday, new auctions are created websites with Coach Outlet sales. Now, obviously not as many Coach purses are sold as others, but because for many, the Coach Luggage is very expensive.

Coach Legacy has launched the latest and hot designer purses to match individual style at affordable prices.
