20 Ways to Increase your Alexa Rank

Here is a collection of methods you can use to boost your Alexa Rank. Most of these tips are derived from several fellow webmasters I know who claimed to have derived positive results through their experiments with the Alexa Rankings.

Some of the other tips were derived articles and sources, which I have duly referenced at the end of this post.

To increase your Alexa rank in the long run, I would highly recommended that one focus on developing quality content which attracts and maintains a large audience instead of purely focusing on artificially increasing your Alexa Rank.

Great link-worthy content will leads to an natural increase in site traffic and is an excellent way to passively increase your Alexa rank.

It is important to emphasize that you should devote most of your efforts in growing your site audience alongside integrated implementation of any of the following tips below.

  1. Install the Alexa toolbar or Firefox’s SearchStatus extension and set your blog as your homepage. This is the most basic step.

  2. Put up an Alexa rank widget on your website. I did this a few days ago and receive a fair amount of clicks every day. According to some, each click counts as a visit even if the toolbar is not used by the visitor.

  3. Encourage others to use the Alexa toolbar. This includes friends, fellow webmasters as well as site visitors/blog readers. Be sure to link to Alexa’s full explanation of their toolbar and tracking system so your readers know what installing the toolbar or extension entails.

  4. Work in an Office or own a company? Get the Alexa toolbar or SS Firefox extension installed on all computers and set your website as the homepage for all browsers. Perhaps it will be useful to note that this may work only when dynamic or different IPs are used.

  5. Get friends to review and rate your Alexa website profile. Not entirely sure of its impact on rankings but it might help in some way.

  6. Write or Blog about Alexa. Webmaster and bloggers love to hear about ways to increase their Alexa rank. They’ll link to you and send you targeted traffic (i.e. visitors with the toolbar already installed). This gradually has effects on your Alexa ranking.

  7. Flaunt your URL in webmaster forums. Webmasters usually have the toolbar installed. You’ll get webmasters to visit your website and offer useful feedback. It’s also a good way to give back to the community if you have useful articles to share with others.

  8. Write content that is related to webmasters. This can fall in the category of domaining and SEO, two fields in which most webmasters will have the Alexa toolbar installed. Promote your content on social networking websites and webmaster forums.

  9. Use Alexa redirects on your website URL. Try this: . Replace with the URL for your website. Leave this redirected URL in blog comments as well as forum signatures. This redirect will count a unique IP address once a day so clicking it multiple times won’t help. There is no official proof that redirects positively benefit your Alexa Rank, so use with caution.

  10. Post in Asian social networking websites or forums. Some webmasters have suggested that East Asian web users are big Alexa toolbar fans, judging by the presence of several Asia-based websites in the Alexa Top 500. I suggest trying this only if you have the time or capacity to do so.

  11. Create a webmaster tools section on your website. This is a magnet for webmasters who will often revisit your website to gain access to the tools. Aaron Wall’s webpage on SEOTools is a very good example.

  12. Get Dugg or Stumbled. This usually brings massive numbers of visitors to your website and the sheer amount will have a positive impact on your Alexa Rank. Naturally, you’ll need to develop link worthy material.

  13. Use PayperClick Campaigns. Buying advertisements on search engines such as Google or Exact Seek will help bring in Traffic. Doubly useful when your ad is highly relevant to webmasters.

  14. Create an Alexa category on your blog and use it to include any articles or news about Alexa. This acts as an easily accessible resource for webmasters or casual search visitors while helping you rank in the search engines.

  15. Optimize your popular posts. Got a popular post that consistently receives traffic from the search engines? Include a widget/graph at the bottom of the post, link to your Alexa post or use Alexa redirection on your internal URLs.

  16. Buy banners and links for traffic from webmaster forums and websites. A prominent and well displayed ad will drive lots of webmaster traffic to your website, which can significantly boost your rank.

  17. Hire forum posters to pimp your website. Either buy signatures in webmaster forums or promote specific articles or material in your website on a regular basis. You can easily find posters for hire in Digital Point and other webmaster forums.

  18. Pay Cybercafe owners to install the Alexa toolbar and set your website as the homepage for all their computers. This might be difficult to arrange and isn’t really a viable solution for most. I’m keeping this one in because some have suggested that it does work.

  19. Use MySpace . This is a little shady so I don’t recommended it unless you’re really interested in artificially inflating your Alexa Rank. Use visually attractive pictures or banners and link them to your redirected Alexa URL. This will be most effective if your website has content that is actually relevant to the MySpace Crowd.

  20. Try Alexa auto-surfs. Do they work? Maybe for brand new sites. I think they are mostly suitable for new websites with a very poor Alexa rank. Note that there be problems when you try to use auto surfs alongside contextual ads like Adsense. They aren’t also long term solutions to improving your Alexa Rank so I suggest using with caution.

Resources on Alexa Rank

Several of the tips listed above were taken from Maki article on Alexa Ranking.

Websites that are ranking well can suddenly find that certain pages, or even the entire website now are listed on the very last page of google results - they have become one of many hit by the google 950 penalty.

According to ComScore's August 2008 search engine rankings, YouTube is now the number two search engine in the world, surpassing Yahoo.

YouTube fetched over 2.6 billion search queries that month, trumping Yahoo's 2.4 billion—though Google itself still reigns supreme with 7.6 billion queries (together, Google and YouTube field 10.2 billion).

It’s also worth noting that Google owns YouTube, thank makes Google #1 and #2
A simple look at most people’s log files will show that Google is larger than Yahoo, MSN, ASK and every other engine combined.. they are where Microsoft was with the desktop 10 years ago…

Youtube has overtaken Yahoo and is now the number 2 search engine in the world. Attached is three months report (courtesy comscore) that clearly shows how you tube enjoys more than 2.5 B queries.
How can we benefit:
Number of Backlinks: All the links are no follow but still appear on yahoo site explorer.
Traffic: Drive traffic to our websites. You tube serves more than 100 million videos per day.
Thought: Links can be added in description and same videos published on our blogs. Videos ought to be very informative to have organic trafiic and hits.

Posted by VPPS Group | 10/21/2008 | 48 comments »

- The request has succeeded. The information returned with the response is dependent on the method used in the request.

- The request has been fulfilled and resulted in a new resource being created.

- The request has been accepted for processing, but the processing has not been completed. The request might or might not eventually be acted upon, as it might be disallowed when processing actually takes place.

Non-Authoritative Information (since HTTP/1.1) - The information received is not from the server that the information was requested from, but from another source.

No Content - There was no content to be given for the request. For instance if you click on a hyperlink, image map, or button that isn't linked to anything or doesn't do anything.

Reset Content - A script has reset the displayed content.


Partial Content - Only partial content has been displayed. This could be due to bandwidth, poor caching, bad html, or other reasons.


Multiple Choices - Indicates multiple options for the resource that the client may follow. It, for instance, could be used to present different format options for video, list files with different extensions, or word sense disambiguation.


Moved Permanently - The requested resource has been assigned a new permanent URI and any future references to this resource SHOULD use one of the returned URIs.


- The requested resource resides temporarily under a different URI. Since the redirection might be altered on occasion, the client SHOULD continue to use the Request-URI for future requests.


Not Modified - If the client has performed a conditional GET request and access is allowed, but the document has not been modified, the server SHOULD respond with this status code.


Temporary Redirect - The requested resource resides temporarily under a different URI. Since the redirection MAY be altered on occasion, the client SHOULD continue to use the Request-URI for future requests.

- The request requires user authentication. The response MUST include a WWW-Authenticate header field containing a challenge applicable to the requested resource.

Internal Server Error - The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request.


Not Implemented - The server does not support the functionality required to fulfill the request. This is the appropriate response when the server does not recognize the request method and is not capable of supporting it for any resource.


Service Temporarily Overloaded - Server congestion; too many connections; high traffic. Keep trying until the page loads.


Service Unavailable - Server busy, site may have moved, or you lost your dial-up Internet connection.


Gateway Timeout - Most likely the client has lost connectivity (disconnected from the internet) or the client’s host is having technical difficulties. This could also mean that a server that allows access to the requested server is down, having bandwidth/load issues, or otherwise


HTTP Version Not Supported - The server does not support the HTTP version used by the client. (This usually occurs if the server is using an OLDER version of HTTP than the client.)Connection Refused by Host

  3. Research Keywords - Create a list of the most relevant keyword phrases for your site. Then choose a few different ones for every page. You should never choose keywords that are general they are rarely used by themselves.
  4. Check for Design Problems - Does your site use Frames, Flash, JavaScript, Image Maps or Dynamic URL's? Unfortunately any one of these design elements can confuse the search engines spiders.
  5. Keywords - Due to the high amount of competition for general keywords you may need to change your mind set and think of "long tail keyword phrases" (2 to 3 word phrases).
  6. Hyperlinks - Try to include your most important keyword phrases within the hyperlink text.
  7. Incoming Links - When choosing sites to link to be certain to only choose those sites that are industry related
  8. Use a Robots.txt File - Include a robots.txt file at the root of your Web site.

Here is a new contender to Google on the horizon. Its called "Cuil".i.e.

With hours of being launched Monday, Cuil - a new search engine created by former top Google engineers - was already being touted in the blogosphere as the next Google killer. But unless Cuil (pronounced ‘cool’) can develop an ad platform to rival Google’s, Cuil will have a difficult time challenging the search giant.

Cuil currently offers no ads on its pages. And the company claims it won’t monitor a user’s search habits in order to target advertising the way Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft do. That’s an ambitious goal. But one of the biggest advantages of Google has over its competitors is that it can provide better search results because it has its massive advertising platform supporting it.

Hi All,

What about u guys ....

Methods not to be used in SEO

  • Hidden text or links.
  • Misleading keywords or keyword stuffing.
  • Cloaked pages or sneaky or deceptive redirects (keyword-stuffed landing pages that quickly redirect to the real page).
  • Doorway pages made only for search engines.
  • Duplicate sites or pages.
  • Monthly submissions to search engines (a waste of time and money).
  • Mainly Optimizing Meta keyword tags (a waste of time and money) but important for some directory listings.

Typically, you can download the free Google Toolbar and if the PR box is grayed out instead of white, your web page has been banned. Google's new 3.0 Toolbar however is giving some false readings at this time.

What is a Search Engine?

A tool that enables users to locate information on the World Wide Web. Search engines use keywords entered by users to find Web sites which contain the information sought.

What is Search Engine Optimization?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. It is a process, in which a web page or a web site is optimized for search engines. By optimization, a search engine such as Google finds the page, includes it in the index, and displays the page when someone is searching for information.

From the Source
Short for search engine optimization, the process of increasing the amount of visitors to a Web site by ranking high in the search results of a search engine. The higher a Web site ranks in the results of a search, the greater the chance that that site will be visited by a user. It is common practice for Internet users to not click through pages and pages of search results, so where a site ranks in a search is essential for directing more traffic toward the site.
SEO helps to ensure that a site is accessible to a search engine and improves the chances that the site will be found by the search engine.

Attracting more traffic to your blog.

Search engine optimization (SEO) is what a search engine brings up when a topic is searched. Understanding the concepts of SEO is important to learning how you can enhance your blog rankings. It is key to remember that popular blogs with excellent content, and ones updated often, do much better in the search engine rankings.
Make friends.
The Web is becoming increasingly social. Associating with other business bloggers can only help your traffic. If you link interesting content of other business blogs on yours, they are more likely to return the favor and link back to you.
Blogs need to be original and provide exceptional information.
There are many business blogs that just re-use current information and re-package it. If you want to attain a successful blog it is important to provide innovative content, not old news.
Useful resource.
Turn your blog into a valuable resource. If your blog is prominent people will be more inclined to share it with others, link to it and talk about it. All of these things mean better blog ranking and more traffic. Your blog rankings will soar if your blog becomes a valuable resource to you target audience.
Web directories.
Submit your business blog to web directories. Directories that list your blog will give you one more link to your blog. This allows you to steadily increase your link popularity. In turn you will also boost your blog's search engine ranking.
Attracting more people to your blog is not an easy task. If you are serious about using your blog as a tool to propel your business, it will take time and effort to acquire more traffic.
