Hey Harsh, today I got 170 visits to my first post and soon after that when I
was checking for alexa rank , it’s showing NO DATA :( :(
Please can you tell me what is the problem??
I’m very sure many of you when start a new blog doesn’t see alexa rank or stats. This is pretty normal and initial 4-5 days you may or may not see your alexa rank.
Once your blog is added into search engine or any link pointing to your blog, Alexa bots will quickly pick your new domain and you can see your alexa rank within no time. Though in some cases it takes almost 20-30 days before your start seeing alexa rank on your alexa widget. Though I suggest you to install Alexa toolbar for your browser so that Alexa will keep getting stats. Also Alexa toolbar helps a lot in increasing alexa rank. Alternatively you can consider adding Alexa widget on your blog which also helps Alexa to calculate about your blog popularity.

Do let us know how much time it took in your case before Alexa started showing details for your site. And are you using Alexa toolbar on your browser or widget on your blog?
