Encourage your site’s visitors to install the Alexa Toolbar - This will ensure that every day that they visit your website, Alexa will count it and incorporate the information into your Alexa rank.
Home Page Matters - Ask your visitors to make your site their browser’s home page. You could even include instructions on how to do this with different browsers. Bring them back with incentives. Regularly updated and informative content is a great incentive for visitors to keep coming back for more.
Alexa Autosurfs - Try Alexa autosurf programs or link trains. These often bring substantial improvement in the short term, but not so much in the long term. They are best for new websites.
Keep in Mind
- You want your Alexa rank numbers to go down, not up. An Alexa rank of 100,000 or lower is the most attractive to advertisers, but many are interested in advertising on sites with higher numbers as well.
- Link trains are frowned upon by some search engines. It’s up to you to decide whether increasing your Alexa rank is worth the risk.
- If you are also interested in increasing your Google PageRank, you’ll need regular links coming in as well,hence get backlinks by commenting in other people’s blog or by link exchange.
Cheers and keep learning.
