Importance Of Alexa Rank To Make Money Online


If your goal is to make money fast through the net then one tool that you can not forget is the Alexa toolbar. There’s no question about the importance of incoming links to a site/blog when you are trying to increase the rank of your site/blog in Google. The first thing a lot of webmasters check when linking a site are the Google Page rank and alexa rank.

So having a high Alexa rank will certainly help you if you are trying to get some incoming links and to successfully begin making money online. And there are some reports saying Google also relies on the Alexa rank when indexing a site or a blog but I am certainly not sure how accurate it is. Anyway increase your Alexa rank is not difficult and it certainly is worth the effort since it can certainly help you to reach your goal to earn money quick. Here are some ways of increasing the Alexa rank.

1) Alexa rank is calculated according to the number of visitors who visit a particular site with the Alexa toolbar installed on their browser. Easiest thing to do is to install the Alexa toolbar on your browser and set your blog or website as the homepage. Then every time someone opens your browser it will count as one hit. A very simple method to increase rank very quick. Download Alexa Toolbar

2) Install the Alexa Rank Widget, and when a visitor to your site clicks on the widget it will also count as a hit.
3) Make use of a service like Up My Rank, it’s a site specially made for anyone interested in increasing the Alexa rank of their website or blog.

4) If there is a network of computers at your work place, change the homepage in all browsers to your site/blog and install the Alexa toolbar.

5) This toolbar is used a lot by website owners, so if you can get these webmasters to visit your site it’ll simply boost your rank in Alexa. One way to easily get webmasters to a site is to write content that they are interested in. This will simply make many users with the Alexa toolbar installed return to your site very often. So adding content related to SEO or online marketing or link exchange (people in search of link exchange always check the Alexa rank) is great.
6) Just add a link allowing your visitors to download the Alexa toolbar and tell them how this toolbar can help them. This will certainly make a visitor to your site or blog install the Alexa toolbar in their browser. So when ever they return it to your site it will be a major boost to your rank. Then again to tell them how this toolbar can help them, you have to use it first. Other than just displaying the Alexa rank of a website there are many other ways in which this toolbar can help you.

7) Like I said earlier the Alexa toolbar is used by many webmasters as well as affiliate marketers. So if you can drive traffic from sites that are being visited often by them is another great way to boost your alexa rank. Buying links and banners from sites that webmasters and affiliates often visit is another way to get visitors to your site with the Alexa toolbar alredy installed.

8) Request friends or family members to use the Alexa toolbar and to change their homepage to your site. A simple thing that can make a big difference to your ranking.

9) Take part in forums such as Warrior Forum and Digital Point Forum and leave forum signatures when you reply to a post, a lot of webmasters use these forums. It can boost you’re Alexa rank as well as drive quality traffic to your site. Read my other post on Easy And Effective Ways To Drive Traffic to learn more about driving traffic.
10) There are reports that the Alexa toolbar is mostly used by Asian web surfers. And it can be true since there are many websites based in Asia that’s currently in the Alexa top 500. So taking part in forums or social networks or any other blogs or sites with a high no of Asian web surfers is a great way to increase your rank.

11) Use bookmark sites like Diigo, Digg or Stumble upon since many webmasters and affiliates use social bookmarking sites so it can be a great way to drive traffic from visitors to your site with this Toolbar installed.

As mentioned its so important to have a high Alexa rank if you really want to be succesful and make money fast. These are simple things that can help you get closer to your dream to earn money online.
