Apart from traffic stats, site linking in stats is updated once in 3 months.

How To Increase Alexa Rank :

So, let me talk about some of the factors, which any blogger can apply and get better Alexa ratings. If your site have good Alexa website rank, you can always showcase as trust factor and ever advertiser are more likely to trust sites with good Alexa rank.

1- Write Content with great quality and unique information

First and foremost thing to increase Alexa rank is to write quality content. It will help you to improve website traffic and another thing is Google loves quality Content. Good content always strikes high-ranking in SERP’s and will help you to increase the amount of traffic on your site.

As, I mentioned above, Alexa rank is directly related to traffic coming to your site, so more traffic you are getting, you have more chances of getting higher rank in Alexa Website rank. Also Alexa have search analytics tab, which shows the traffic your site is getting from search engine, which also improves over the time. If you are new to writing content which drives huge traffic, I suggest you to read following posts:

2- Think outside of the Box

Write guest post: It’s also a great way to increase Alexa rank. Guest post will help you to build back links, having good number of back links will improve Alexa rank and sites linking in number will go high. While writing guest post don’t forget the point no.1 quality content. You can also consider commenting or other methods of build backlinks, which will help you to increase sites linking in stats and gradually it will  have positive impact on overall site traffic and Alexa ratings.

3- Write Regularly, more often

I think it is the backbone of this system to increase Alexa rank. Write regularly for your blog and that will definitely help you to increase your Alexa rank. No one loves dead blogs where blog is updated once in a while, everybody wants good content on regular basis. You must write 1-3 post daily if you are a beginner in blogging career. You will see the result that how fast your alexa ranking is increasing.

4- Put Alexa Rank Widget

Having an Alexa widget on your blog/website will help you to increase Alexa ranking. It will show the current Alexa ranking status of your blog/website . All you have to do is register your blog/website to and paste the code in the source code of your blog.

Bonus tip: Alexa review

Some time back, Alexa added review feature for sites, where you and your readers can give their feedback and rate a site. I’m not sure how it impacts over all Alexa traffic rank, but still good number of positive reviews add into trust factor of your site.

You can see an example by clicking the review tab on SML Alexa stats.

You can encourage your readers to write a review for your site or best way is to send out an Email newsletter to your loyal subscriber and let them know about a place, where they can add testimonial or review of your site.

Some other methods which you can use buy traffic, which helps in boosting your traffic or may be an active social media promotion like Reddit. Flipboard can send huge traffic in a short span of time.

There are many web services which claim to boost Alexa stats, but I recommend to stay away from them and keep your ranking genuine and legit. After all, a good & genuine alexa rank will work as ego boost for you and for your site.

Anyways, these are some of the tips which will help you to increase Alexa rank and I would love to know if you believe in Alexa traffic rank and any other method you would like to share for boosting stats for your site?

    After reading Reviews from others’ here on this article, I am satisfied about my site’s rank, whatever it is and will keep on writing the same way without worrying about Alexa Rank.

  5. I’m wondering how long it takes for Alexa to rank websites because I am presently getting decent traffic to my websites via ppc and Facebook but my website is still not ranked. This has made it difficulty for me to get accepted into most affiliate programs because these programs seem to use data from alexa to determine if you can send them enough traffic.
