Why would you want to increase your Alexa rank? Webmasters, advertisers and ad networks use your blog’s Alexa rank as a gauge to determine the worth of a link on your website. If you depend on link or site selling as a form of monetization you’ll definitely want to increase your Alexa rank, because it’ll increase your bargaining power when it comes to ad pricing. ReviewMe, Text Link Ads and Sponsored eviews are just three of the networks which base your ad selling strength on Alexa Ranks. 20 Ways to Increase your Alexa Rank Here is a collection of methods you can use to boost your Alexa Rank. Most of these tips are derived from several fellow webmasters I know who claimed to have derived positive results through their experiments with the Alexa Rankings. To increase your Alexa rank in the long run, I would highly recommended that one focus on developing quality content which attracts and maintains a large audience instead of purely focusing on artificially increasing your Alexa Rank. Great link-worthy content will leads to an natural increase in site traffic and is an excellent way to passively increase your Alexa rank. It is important to emphasize that you should devote most of your efforts in growing your site audience alongside integrated implementation of any of the following tips below. 1- Install the Alexa toolbar or Firefox’s SearchStatus extension and set your blog as your homepage. This is the most basic step. 2- Put up an Alexa rank widget on your website. According to some, each click counts as a visit even if the toolbar is not used by the visitor. 3- Encourage others to use the Alexa toolbar. This includes friends, fellow webmasters as well as site visitors/blog readers. Be sure to link to Alexa’s full explanation of their toolbar and tracking system so your readers know what installing the toolbar or extension entails. 4- Write or Blog about Alexa. Webmaster and bloggers love to hear about ways to increase their Alexa rank. They’ll link to you and send you targeted traffic (i.e. visitors with the toolbar already installed). This gradually has effects on your Alexa ranking. 5- Use Alexa redirects on your website URL. Try this: . Change for you url's blog/site. Leave this redirected URL in blog comments as well as forum signatures. This redirect will count a unique IP address once a day so clicking it multiple times won’t help. There is no official proof that redirects positively benefit your Alexa Rank, so use with caution. This and more tips you can find it at If you know another tips let me know it:P

Yes I have heard of it but I am not using this. Though I have had downloaded this software on my desktop but I don't do anything with that.By reading your description I think it is an essential tool to be added to my blogs too. I would definitely try this later on as I am not able to get much traffic to my blogs. I will also go through your Blog in details and try to do the needful.Thanks for your information.
