And There Goes Our Alexa Rank!

By Daniel Scocco

I woke up today and was browsing through my RSS feeds when I came across an interesting post from Problogger: Alexa Announces ‘New’ Rankings.

It looks like Alexa is now using other sources apart from the toolbar to draw its traffic metrics, and as a result all the previous rankings were shuffled. Problogger used to have a 2,600, and now they are at 12,900. Daily Blog Tips used to have a 14,000, and now we are at 68,000.

The objetive was to remove the bias towards tech websites, where a greater percentage of the visitors would have the toolbar installed. My initial impressions is that this new ranking system might work better in fact, because Daily Writing Tips, not a tech blog, kept its previous Alexa ranking.

How did your Alexa rank change?

    We never experience any drops in our ranking so maybe not all are affected of the change in Google.

    The ranking of my website has dropped from 4 to 2. Can any body suggest what to do?

    Even my website’s ranking dropped, though by couple of thousands only.

    Strangely, we are seeing a consistent increase in the number of unique visitors through Statcounter.com, the changes in Alexa ranking are slightly dis-aligned.

    Wondering, how to make our visitors install Alexa Tool bar!!!
