Update Blog at Regular Time interval to get Good Alexa Rank
For good alexa ranking of your site, a blog or website needs to be updated at regular interval of time with good content. If you do not update your site regulary, even after achieving good Alexa rank, Alexa can demote the rank of your site. For this, it is not compulsory that you should update your site daily, but make a routine to update your site/blog with specific time interval instead of updating it any time. If you can not update your site daily, then atleast make sure to update it in weakly or monthly basis like you can update it twice or thrice in a week.
