Has Your Alexa Rank Gone Down Or Dissppeared?

So my rank was doing fine at 4 million with a steady flow of traffic of about 50 hits. Al of a sudden one of my posts got more traffic and i averaged 150 a day. All of a sudden my Alexa rank disappears and my rank was no longer available. Some sites suggeset they had change there Algorithm every now and then which calulates how much traffic sites get.

Some Random Info about What and how Alexa works:

  • How does Alexa work? A site’s ranking is based on a combined measure of reach and pageviews. Reach is determined by the number of unique Alexa users who visit a site on a given day. Pageviews are the total number of Alexa user URL requests for a site. However, multiple requests for the same URL on the same day by the same user are counted as a single pageview. The site with the highest combination of users and pageviews is ranked #1.
  • My new site doesn’t have a rank, how long does it take? You will have to be patient and give it 3 months to give you an accurate rating. The longer your site has been monitored by Alexa the better, it gives more of an accurate level of reporting.

 Mean while to help get your your Alexa rank back up in action i suggest you do the following:

  • Submit your site to Alexa and your details so it can update the thumbnail and start indexing your site. Goto the following url and change the ending to your domain:
  • Download the Alexa Toolbar – This will help increase your rank and get it moving again. If you blogging post about it and get readers to download the toolbar as well.
  • Place a Alexa Rank Wiget on your site – This helps Alexa keep a check on how many people are visiting your site and will boost your rank.
  • i’m sitting at 2.7mil

  • “Place a Alexa Rank Wiget on your site – This helps Alexa keep a check on how many people are visiting your site and will boost your rank. ”

    Its actually controversial as to whether or not this actually does anything. This site claims to have direct word from ALEXA that it does nothing.

  • Yea, direct letter from alexa proves it doesn’t work :(
    Oh well, it still looks good on the site. I have a theory though, what if people click it and view your actual alexa page rank site? Will that increase the rank?

  • I just ignore whatever Alexa says because I hear alot of news on how inaccurate it is. I hear is better… but I’m not sure.
