It’s already Friday and this is a post I planned on getting out on Monday of last week, yeah it’s safe to say I am running behind or I am just suffering from a lack of motivation to write blogging tips. I have a pretty crazy day ahead of me, so this will be a quick post to give you a few tips that might help you increase your Alexa ranking.
The Alexa Toolbar is a free toolbar that will not only allow you to track your own blog or websites ranking, it will also allow you to see where other blogs rank on Alexa.com. Another benefit to having the Alexa Toolbar installed on your browser is that it also offers some form of credit in increasing your own Alexa ranking, because each time you visit your own site with the toolbar installed.. it helps your ranking.
I really can’t take credit for this I have to give this credit up to Cristina Bledsoe from The Star Celeb for getting me involved in this to some degree. Basically one of your blog readers that is a blogger takes a moment to write a review in regards to the reasons they like your blog, in the event you read their blog as well you can return the favor.
This is pretty simple and I can see where it would be effective, the key here is keeping the chain honest. Don’t write reviews for blogs that you really don’t read, and don’t expect people that don’t read your blog to write reviews for you. Keep it real, and if you feel like it you can review Extreme John here.
3. Reach Out to Your Readers
If you put a tremendous amount of work into your blog and you have built a nice community amongst the folks that read your blog take a moment to reach out to them right on your blog, ask your readers to rate and review your blog on Alexa.
Don’t get frustrated if this doesn’t come together for you right away, not everyone is motivated to write a review for someone else and it might take a little time before you really start to see the results you want.
Who knows maybe after writing this I little post with some Alexa ranking tips I might get a review or two out of it (hint hint). Either way if you found this useful take a moment and leave a comment, you might want to subscribe to my rss feed or follow me on Twitter.
