    Alexa rank is very important for any website or blog. As Alexa calculates the performance of our site globally and ranks the site ,we have the possibility of knowing where we stand amongst the other competitors or websites.
    The post mentions some methods both white hat and some black hat techniques by which we can boost up our Alexa rank.

  8. As per my tricks use forum for that purpose. Continue increase your forum posting day by day. Exam: If you create 2 forum posting in 1st day then 3 day you must create 4 forum related to your niche. I think your alexa ranking going down.

  9. There were a couple here that were new to me. I wish there was a way to translate Alexa Traffic rank to real traffic numbers. I think the biggest challenge is the rank doesn’t directly translate to traffic numbers.
