Is Alexa Rank Important For A Blog?

Wednesday, 5 December 2012 Category : 0

Alexa Rank is measure of a blog's traffic that lets users and the blog admin know of how the blog compares to the rest of the websites in the world.Although the idea of a single rank saying whether one blog is better than an another is appealing but it is just impossible to say whether a blog is better than the other as blog's have their own niche and their style depends on the writer.

Alexa Rank seems to be something that bloggers chase after, everybody wants to be in the top 100K websites in the world, which ensures that you get a lot of money, lot of reputation and appreciation of your efforts in building a successful blog.

But, Alexa Rank has a lot of fundamental flaws which do not ensure a great accuracy when determining the ranks of blogs.So to say it in short, it is not all that important to have a great Alexa rank, it is more important to ensure that you are getting a good amount of traffic directed to your blog through organic as well as social media tactics.

Alexa rank may improve your chances if getting better advertisers and higher paying advertisers but the main thing you need to know is that the advertisers are also becoming very smart, they now know that Alexa Rank can be manipulated to a certain degree and hence it is not very reliable.

I just thought that I should share this with you guys as it was on my mind for a long time.

There are several people posing as webmasters and posting on popular webmaster forums that there are many ways to trick and manipulate your Alexa Rank.One of the most popular ways mentioned, that I saw, was the Alexa Rank Booster Javascript.They claim that playing this Javascript can Increase the Alexa Rank of any site or blog upto the 80K mark.I am not quite sure why they have said it works only till the 80K mark, but many people seem to think so.

Here is the Javascript if you would like to use it -
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.2" type="text/javascript"><!--
function reload(){
var strI=document.stored.Arrayvalue.value;
var str = new Array(20);
// insert target URLs between quote marks in array items below. 
// To add or remove the total number items in the array, add
// lines to or remove lines from the array below and
// modify the number in "Array()" above and "strI" below to
// be one greater than the last "str[]" value below.
str[1]   = "";
str[2]   = "";
str[3]   = "";
str[4]   = "";
str[5]   = "";
str[6]   = "";
str[7]   = "";
str[8]   = "";
str[9]   = "";
str[10]  = "";
str[11]  = "";
str[12]  = "";
str[13]  = "";
str[14]  = "";
str[15]  = "";
str[16]  = "";
str[17]  = "";
str[18]  = "";
str[19]  = "";

if( strI==20){
document.stored.Arrayvalue.value= strI;
var intNumber=Math.round(Math.random()*45000);

</head><body onload="reload();">
<form name="stored"><input type="Text" name="Arrayvalue" value="1"></form>
Personally I feel that none of the Alexa Rank Booster tricks and manipulations work, I do not feel that this Javascript works too, as if it did anyone with even a blog that is few days old should be able to make it to the top 5000 Alexa Ranks.

Let me know what you think about the Alexa Rank Booster Javascript, share with us your knowledge if you have used this code and let us know if it works.

7)Get More Alexa Reviews - 

Try to get more Alexa reviews for your blog or website, this will show that your blog is full of quality.Alexa considers Alexa Reviews as a part of ranking a blog.
