How to Increase Alexa Rank?

Do you know what Alexa is?

When I tried to join a pay per post site, they asked me what my Alexa Rank was. I had no idea what Alexa was. I thought it was just another name of a site that I needed to join which was not really the case.

Alexa is another search engine like google and yahoo. Alexa has its own rank and this rank means a number of times your blog was visited by a visitor with an Alexa toolbar. That is right. In order for the visit to count, the visitor should have an Alexa Toolbar.

So how do I increase my Alexa Rank?

1. I should encourage my friends to download that toolbar and then visit my blog.
2. I found this redirect URL,, from a "how to increase alexa rank" site. It says that it should help increase the rank by leaving that URL into a forum or a comment.
3. Then, join an auto surf or traffic sites like Trafficswarm to get traffic. This one might work temporarily but temporary hits are okay while I am learning.

I installed my Alexa Toolbar today and we will see what happens next. I will try those three things listed above. I will let you know when I get good results.

The Alexa rank is measured according to the amount of users who’ve visited a website with the Alexa toolbar installed. Alexa toolbar is an application developed by Alexa Internet. Its primary use is to measure website statistics. This toolbar collects as well as gives some valuable information. Once you install it, the Alexa toolbar monitors all your surfing and collects information about what domains you visit. They use this data to rank web sites. The traffic rank they assign to websites is based on 3 months of aggregated historical traffic data from millions of other users and is a combined measure of page views and users. Webmasters, advertisers and ad networks use your blog’s Alexa rank as a gauge to determine the worth of a link on your website. If you depend on link or site selling as a form of monetization you’ll definitely want to increase your Alexa rank, because it’ll increase your bargaining power when it comes to ad pricing.
