What is Alexa Rank?

Alexa Rank is just another rank of websites which is calculated by www.alexa.com (a subsidiary company of Amazon.com) based on the number of visitors visiting the site who has Alexa toolbar installed on their web browsers and number of Backlinks (no matter whether it is do-follow or no-follow) a website has, pointing from other websites or webpages.

What is Importance of Alexa Rank?

Like other webmasters, I too personally feel that there is no such importance of Alexa rank for a blog/website as it can be easily tricked for better ranking. It does not have any connection with Google PageRank. But still some bloggers and webmasters give emphasis on Alexa ranking of a website, as it may be a factor in evaluating the value or worth of your blog/website and it may play some role in valuing the advertisement space on your blog. Some bloggers also think that Alexa is the next thing after Google Page rank to evaluate a website.

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.
