Few days back I found this article http://www.crunchytricks.com/2014/07/10-methods-to-increase-alexa-ranking.html and it helped me a lot. I think it took around 10-12 to reach 1 lac alexa ranking of my newly created website.
Try taking help of an expert on sites like SEOClerks, listingdock etc. They got very low fees.
Install alexa tool bar in your computer. Also ask your friends and relatives to do that. With the usage of that tool and visiting the website as well through it will for sure increase your alexa ranking.
Alexa's evaluation algorithm places a heavy weighting upon the number and PR quality of the backlinks which are "hooked into" your site. The other typical SEO factors do figure into the ranking of your site, but obtaining the greatest number of high-ranked backlinks is one of the quickest ways to elevate your Alexa score and ranking position. Incidentally, large numbers of low-ranking or irrelevant backlinks will work against you. Good content and some intelligent social engineering will work best to assist you in obtaining the greatest Alexa rankings.
I think the first question is why you would so so worried about your Alexa ranking unless you were a media company. Alexa rankings, as Eddie points out below are questionable at the outset because their methodology really doesn't mirror usage of the web.
Secondly the real value in ranking is where you are on a search page. And as Collin rightly points out to do that is through deployment SEO best practices. Another one is to start SEM and paying for placement (drives more traffic and Google likes making money so they tend to bump up advertisers sites) and even developing a Social campaign and even advertising itself. The basic thing to do it so get people to go the site and get then to come back often. Rankings like nothing better than legitimate traffic.
Yes, agreed with the others. Design an editorial calendar that incorporates your content education with top trending on all social media terms. Launch 2 press releases a month minimum and distribute through free wire service unless you buy a subscription service $40-$800 a release depending on who you use.
Optimize your SEO key terms, and leverage your editorial calendar to post on all your social spaces (linkedin, google+, FB, TWitter, Pinterest) ; whatever makes sense for your target audience. Post several times a day using a tool like Hootsuite.
I recommend Blogdash to create a campaign so that bloggers will cover your stories- do at least 5-7 articles a month on what you know and let them propagate online on their blogs and drive awareness to your web pages.
SEO is a combination of onsite and off site tools and techniques...most of all, it takes time. Those that have been out there longer than you will get higher priority. So be patient and you'll start to see results over months of disciplined work.
The focus should be on more traffic, more sales, better customer experience. Focus on those and you'll find rankings really don't matter.. They look after themselves.
to increase Alexa rank the easiest way is to install Alexa toolbar on all staff computers and have all staff visit your website as much as possible
Alexa is very un reliable, we help many companies with their internet marketing through SEO, example one of customers gets 4000 hits a month and there Alexa raking is over 8 million when we have another client just started with us gets 300 to 400 hits and his ranking is 1.2 million. Analytics is a better way to track your site..
One of the quickest ways of improving your Alexa ranking is to use content curation. You simply write a brief lead-in to a high-ranking site's content (a particular post that is relevant to your website), maybe put your spin on the topic, and then link to the other site's post. Using anchor text usually works better for the link than just putting the URL.
To check out content curation in action, you can visit:
And, as mentioned, to become a high ranking site with ongoing 'good' Alexa ranking, you do need original and regularly updated useful content on your site.
Hope this is helpful,
