Increasing Your Alexa Ranking
This is a little bit off topic as it has got nothing to do with Debt, Money Saving, or Money Making, or has it? I often write about debt issues and other stuff as mentioned above, I also occasionally write about making money from your blog. So I figure the better your Alexa Ranking the more money it may be possible to make from your blog.
I have noticed that the better my Google Ranking and also my Alexa Ranking, the more inclined companies are willing to pay higher priced for the privilege of advertising on this site. So with that in mind I have started a little experiment to see if I can increase my Alexa Ranking.
On the 4 January 2014 I decided to advertise my Alexa Rank directly from this site. On the day that I placed the code on this site my ranking was 306,864. My understanding is that by having this code on my site, it can help to improve my Alexa Ranking. Today, four days later as I write this post, I see that may ranking is 306,849. So an improvement of an amazing (sarcasm) 15 points! So a smidgen of an improvement over four days.
I did also read that by having a link directly back to Alexa there may be a chance of again improving my sites ranking – so as a result I have placed a link back to Alex from this post. So lets see if this has any great effect on my blogs ranking.
Just maybe if I am able to improve it some more, I may be able to attract more trade to this site and make more money?
