How to Increase Alexa Rank of your Blog – Top Secrets Revealed

Alexa is one of the many ways to evaluate the traffic of any blog or website and mainly used by advertisers. But now a days there is a buzz going on between bloggers to compete each other according to Alexa Rank. Amazingly some bloggers easily achieve high Alexa Rank with low traffic and some times it looks like that its rankings are not 100% authentic. Although its rankings are not directly propositional to your blog traffic but still they can give you some idea of how well is your website doing.


How Alexa Rank Works.

Before we move onto the top secret points of how to increase Alexa rank of your blog this is important that we understand how Alexa Rank works. Here is what they say.

The Alexa Traffic Rank is calculated after collecting aggregated data from Alexa Toolbar users over the period of three months. The metric combines the amount of page views and user traffic. Traffic and page views are calculated per day, and then calculated from the average of these two numbers after time.

If you are still  confused with Page views and user traffic than read my detailed article on Difference Between Hits, Page Impressions, Visits and Unique Visits.

Its a myth that if you get more traffic from Facebook than your Alexa Rank will improve. Well personally i think that it works and when ever my blog gets traffic from Facebook my rank improves. Also try to be active on webmaster forums as these forums are mostly visited by bloggers and they often have Alexa toolbar installed into their systems.

5. Update your blog daily on same Time.

Try to update your blog daily and i know its very difficult but not that difficult if your blog is about technology or news related. Also publish your posts on same time.

  4. Hi Moshin Ali,
    great tips, thanks for sharing.

    I could add that in order to increase your Alexa Rank,
    you should write content related to webmasters : most of the webmasters use the Alexa toolbar. So if you want them to visit your site and increase your Alexa ranking, then you may write useful articles related to SEO, Internet Marketing or webmaster tools.

    • Mohsin Ali Waheed says:

      Erik you are absolutely right, i have seen many blogs related to blogging, SEO etc ranked higher in Alexa while they have very little traffic.

  5. Sohail says:

    I am already following this secret except no 08.

  6. Aasalamwalekum bro,
    Such a marvelous content it is!
    I liked it and i am agree with your 8th point (8. Post daily at 12 Mid Night.),
    It really works better, as i am using my hostel Wi-Fi and usually it doesn’t work between 8 Pm to 11:15 Pm (India Time) then i posted either about mid night or early in the morning and i observed that day my alexa decreased about 10,000 to 12,000.

    Nice to see both Alexa Gurus on your site. As Ammar is already in your list of best PAKI bloggers .

    Congratulations to both of them.

    Thank you for sharing knowledge with us :)

  7. Amit Shaw says:

    OMG Alexa Guru?
    BTW Thanks for Featuring My Name Mohsin. First of all you have already mentioned some superb Points over here. Yeah I am agree with your all points. Dialy updates and timely updates plays a vital role to get good alexa rank. But its depneds oN Niche. Because getting good alexa rank on Blogging or IM Niche is tough than TechBlog. Tech arena is rapidly growing and we are able to see daily new tech updates so we can update regulary but for IM niche it being tough because we don’t have much to write we have to research and have to write quality article too.

    I highly recommend to all newbie bloggers don’t depends on Alexa and PR. Yeah its important only for Advertisement and nothing else. So focus on Quality and if you want to write quality article then it required time so it would’nt be possible to update daily.

    ***Write for Readers Not For Search Enginee or Alexa/PR.***

    Mohshin already mentioned all points apart from this if you want more tips then alwasy welcome, Send me Friend Request or Msg on facebook(Which Mohsin mentioned on the end of article). I will try to help you to get good Alexa too ;).

    Don’t Try to do any Black Hat Method to achive quick success. History says Success needs time.
    Do it right so that you reap the rewards.
    Thanks. Have a Nice Day.

    • Mohsin Ali Waheed says:

      Amit thanks for visiting and giving the precious information to my blog readers. I totally agree with you that we have to focus on writing quality content not on Alexa Rank and Pagerank etc but you know its human nature that we want quick success rather than working hard.

  8. Shahid says:

    Feeling proud to call Amit as Alexa Guru……….:) He is really.

  9. Hope the steps will really help…

  10. Hammad Baig says:

    Awesome tips I really like this

    • Mohsin Ali Waheed says:

      Thanks Hammad for you comment. Do apply these tips and let me know if it works for you or not.

  11. John Ernest says:

    I actually could not see how posting at 11:59pm can help you gain a lot more traffic. But, I do think it would be great if you have subscribers or regular visitors who are from other time zones. That way they will be able to be the first to read your blog and eventually be the first to comment and everyone loves being the first commentator because it has the most potential to be a great backlink.

    • Mohsin Ali Waheed says:

      John the other reason to post at mid night is that when you publish post it will also be published on Facebook and you know now a days posts can be quickly hide in the main stream. So your post can be seen by maximum people which means more traffic.

  12. saad naeem says:

    Great post Mohsin , traffic is not the main key when increasing your alexa i have a site with 1000 visitors and it has alexa of 1000,000 , and another site with 100 visitors a day and alexa is below 200k . its just weird how the algorithm works

  13. Salman Qamar says:

    I am new to blogging. But can u elaborate point 8 a little more?

  14. Waleed Ahmad says:

  18. Main Uddin says:

    Mohsin Ali Waheed @ You have missed one point here that Alexa gives preferences SERP of AOL .Why they they prefer AOL which I don’t know .Another CAUTION i think must utter here that those webmasters or bloggers use Google Adsense to monetize their contents they must avoid more traffic from Facebbok.Reason is know to all.

    • Mohsin Ali Waheed says:

      Main Uddin thanks for your your tip. As far as Facebook traffic is concern one should not totally depend on it. You are very right that Adsense enabled sites should be very careful about it.

  22. Ahmed says:

  23. Hi Mohsin
    Alexa -> The sexiest term among the bloggers(especially for noobs)
    The best way to attract new bloggers to any blog is writing about Alexa ;) I know Alexa rank is a foolish thing to measure any blog success, but it’s vital for ads.
    It’s a good measurement to track the competitors traffic, keywords etc. Thought it’s not so accurate, it can help to track them.
    Great post brother :) Keep helping your readers(count me in!).

    • Mohsin Ali Waheed says:
