The above two pictures will show how I improved the Alexa ranking of my website from over 17 million to under 250,000 in less than four months. Well if you would care to believe me, I wish to share that this was the first time I hosted a website of my own and was very excited about it. However had absolutely no knowledge about how to go about it? I had never heard about WordPress till I registered my domain. Still I have been able to improve the Alexa Ranking of Website as is clear from pics. So how did I do it? I have covered in detail about my experiences in another post. However I am listing below in very brief format, some very simple steps which I had come to know and learned about by googling as much information I could during this short but exciting journey.
1)Write Guest Posts for Other popular blogs which are on same subject as yours
2)Comment intelligently and thoughtfully to articles in other popular blogs as often as possible.
3)If you are running some offline business and send a lot of mails, add the details of your new website under your signature with a subtle request to check it out and recommend suggestions if any.
4)Write as often as possible but a minimum of one to two articles every day. I would recommend writing and posting upto a maximum of five articles everyday which however should be 100% originally thought and written by you.
5)Install Alexa toolbar in your system and always visit your website using the toolbar.
6)Write on interesting, latest and boiling issues in the field about which you are writing. It does make sense and is Google Search friendly to write on current topics and latest trends in your field
7)Make the title of your post thought provoking and interesting. The title itself says a lot and pulls in reader to try clicking on it and thus making them read the first line of it. What is point of writing tons of English if no one is reading them. A fraction of that hard work in thinking of and writing a good title can go a long way.
8)Publicise your articles and posts amongst your friends and family members on Facebook Twitter and other such social media without being too intimidating and assertive. The invite should be very subtle and should not appear to be forced upon.
9)Last and not the least, don’t tend to give up especially when you are working hard and the results don’t show up. At times there is a lag between the effort and the results on the website ranking. So the trick lies in being persistent as you will find that the weaker casual ones will eventually give up paving the way for hard working ones like you to go higher relatively easily.
I think if you just follow these few steps which I follow religiously all the time while writing and maintaining my website, I feel that it is not going to be difficult to achieve what I have achieved. Here I also wish to mention that improving the Alexa Ranking early on is very easy. However the real struggle and fight begins when one approaches the higher ranking after breaching levels such as 500,000 and 250,000. One needs to be persistent, hard working and passionate about it all the time to achieve success. And as they say, ‘ Do what you Love, the Money will Follow’
