How do you improve your Alexa traffic rank? – Over the last 3 months we’ve been completely obsessed with working towards improving our Alexa traffic rank. Just in case you didn’t know, Alexa is an Amazon company, and it is the web’s most popular website ranking system, ask any webmaster or web developer.
The system works by using the highest numerical rank (i.e. 10,000,000 or more) to represent a website with a weak 3 month global traffic rank or change, in other words its telling you that there are 10 million or so websites out there with a better 3 month global traffic rank than yours.
Whilst the lowest numerical rank (i.e. 100,000 or less) represents a website or blog with a stronger 3 month global traffic change, meaning there are only 100 thousand websites out there with a better 3 month global traffic rank the yours, simple.
