Check Your Site Statistics

 I stumbled across this site which gives multiple statistics for any site. Instead of using multiple sites to retrieve your PR’s and alexa/Technorati: ranks, this site has it all in one! It can find out all the information with one simple click. (although it does take a while to load all the stats)


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.
