How to get lower Alexa rank?

Hi everyone,

What are some ways through which we can achieve lower alexa rankings? Is it just about traffic? If there is increase in traffic to a website, then will the alexa rank improves?

Alexa rank is not accurate and does not reflect accurate traffic websites receive.
If you keep tracking code on each of your page then it may track all visits to your website.

I have never cared about Alexa because it's useless. The only time you would show this on your website is when you are trying to sell advertising space because potential buyers would be able to see what country you get the most traffic from.

Focus on getting quality backlinks in which helps in improving rankings which brings in traffic. The more unique traffic to start to get, in do time the Alexa ranking will go down anyways.

Look, without constant traffic your website is a waste of space on the internet, focus on traffic and rankings which helps you a ton.

Thanks for your suggestion. It means people using different tools and services for increasing traffic for short term are just wasting their money and time. I'm now looking into quality content and doing some effort for backlinks. I hope this will help in long term.

I agree with snakeair. Alexa is not showing the exact figures all the time. They show rough ideas, but you should not follow the alexa and don't get affraid if it goes down. We have seen sometime it show hike in alexa with traffic higher traffic than before.

Try to increase website traffic and hits, Higher traffic and visitors on the website will lower the Alexa rank.

I'd say, you need to increase the web traffic, this way Alexa rank will decrease.

Also I heard people use the Alexa widget, and this can also decrease your Alexa ranking.

Thanks for asking. As you know very well if our keywords rank well so automatically traffic will come & If we want to Improve keyword ranking so we need quality content & backlinks.

We can use social sites for improve traffic.

I use social sites all the time but If my followers will not share/retweet my content that I wouldn't be getting a ton of traffic. Make the social media posts eye catching and well post just enough to force them to view your website for all the information.

How has social media promoting has worked for you? Care to share your experience? I've did many times on this forum already. You might get banned soon if you don't start paying attention in the threads.

the authority of your site on the web is translated as your Alexa Rank.

I don't think alexa rank is so important... create quality site & bring organic traffic... Alexa rank will automatically increases...

Just to mention it took me over 4 month for Alexa ranking to be even stated as part of my website analytics while i has seo efforts in place with good pratcices used i think. But i see no correlation between my Alexa ranking going lower (= good thing) and my actual SE ranking.

You have to create more content for your site in order to get a lower rank on Alexa. Write , write, write.
