Are you impatiently waiting for your Alexa
Ranking to increase?
Want to know what is the secret of Alexa ranking? It is the quality and quantity
of traffic to your site and how you convert those visitors that determines whether or not you will be a success.
Alexa.com's traffic rankings are based on the usage patterns of
Alexa Toolbar users over a rolling 3 month period. If you are working on a website you can help to increase your Alexa ranking simply by having the toolbar running when you view the web site. Alexa typically allows you to view 4 different default date spans: 3 Months, 6 Months, 1 Year, 2 Years. Now if you want a better idea
of your site ranking, you can find out statistics for one month or any other period up to 4 years by manipulating the URL.
To do this, simply go to the graph you want to see using one of Alexa's default time spans,
Now look up at your address bar and and then modify the part of the URL that looks like this:
- Now simply change range=3 to range=1. Now you will have a better idea if your site is ranking better than it was before.
In this range parameter, "d" = day, "m" = month and "y" =
Replacing "&range=3m" with "&range=10d" will cause the graph to span for 10
Alexa ranks sites from 1 to 5,000,000 and sometimes higher. Ranking 1 has the most traffic and so on, anything below 250,000 and you should be getting some decent traffic levels.
