Did Alexa miss the real traffic of your web site?
I believe that you do something about it.

How to Improve Your Alexa Ranking

Install Sparky: Alexa Toolbar

You can install your Firefox Alexa Toolbar and set your own site as your default home page. Your own traffic to your site may contribute a bit. But nobody can really understand how they calculate the ranking.

Alexa Widget does not help Alexa Ranking – Proven or Not

Someone post a blog saying he has proven that Alexa Widget is useless in helping your Alexa ranking. The reason:

To prove my point, I checked the code of the alexa widget which is a script pointing to a .js script. Curiously, I opened it and to my surprise found nothing but three functions, namely: AlexaSiteStatsWidget (For getting the code of the widget) , getFullURL(For getting the webites URL) and encode64(For putting both onto the page).

This observation is not really correct as fwaggle.org said

What browser you use, what operating system you use, your geographic location, and how many times youve been to the site – all of these things can be trivially tracked just by you loading an image from a remote server. The fact theres no obvious javascript to track this information doesnt mean that its not done.”

I agree with Fwaggle in that point. Whether or not Alexa put that tracking into their ranking calculation is always a myth.( or trade secrete?)

It doesn’t hurt much if you just put it on your site. So one way that may help Alexa record your traffic like Sparky is to put Alexa Site Widget on most pages of your site like this one:
<SCRIPT type=’text/javascript’ language=’JavaScript’ src=’http://xslt.alexa.com/site_stats/js/s/a?url=99people.com’></SCRIPT>

<SCRIPT type=’text/javascript’ language=’JavaScript’ src=’http://xslt.alexa.com/site_stats/js/s/a?url=chinesebay.com’></SCRIPT>

( I know the ranking is low now. Kaibo2.com was one higher ranking than 200,000 , the bigger the number, the lower the ranking )

Update Site information

Update Alexa Site Information using their Site Owner Tools at http://www.alexa.com/edit/ This may be pretty useful for brand new domain.

To many people, Alexa ranking does not mean anything because they complain about its inaccuracy. Estimates or stats may never be accurate, but still it is a benchmark, something better than nothing. Some people sing praise about Compete, but their number can be much worst when we look at my clients’ site rankings and their web server logs and Google Analytics as they do not listen to users’ input and feedback, only doing what they ‘think’ is correct.

PostHeaderIcon Dot-tel (.tel ) domain heros – new technology

Well, Dot-tel may not be using ‘new’ technology, but it certainly open up a new perspective for Internet world.

If you are so used to the .com or .net domains, you need to think carefully before you buy a .tel domain because .tel domains may not be what you expect.

PostHeaderIcon ScottsMoneyBlog.com Is Scam or Not

Before you sign up ScottsMoneyBlog.com, think carefully and read all the fine print. For many people who did sign up from his link, they feel being scammed. Why? Check this out at http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/scottsmoneyblog.com/postid?p=1511690

If they tell the visitors up front about their Terms and Conditions (the fine print at the bottom), which are usually ignored when they excite the visitor so much and push visitors with the time-is-running scare tactics, they would never say they are scam. What does the fine print say? “You have also subscribed to a fourteen-day trial to IPlanFinancial for just $38.34 a month and every month thereafter should you chose not to cancel. Prior charges for all programs are non-refundable but bonus subscriptions can be cancelled and future charges stopped at any time by calling toll free 888-247-3851.

If you choose to sign up for this product and pay the recurring monthly charges using a debit card you hereby provide pre-authorization and consent that FreshKeywordIdeas.com may charge $77.82 on a monthly basis. ” Does it sound familiar? People may also find this kind of selling pitch at PayDayProject’s offer. Among them, you can find BlogToolkit.com. Some good friends of mine forwarded this fine print about BlogToolKit.com: “Also, by continuing you understand this offer includes a 14-Day Free Trial to the BlogToolKit.com website, which can help you create an additional income using the tools and strategies inside. After the 14-Day Free Trial period, you will continue to enjoy full membership at an affordable $39.95 per month billed automatically to your credit card. Rest assured, this FREE bonus offer can be cancelled at anytime during the trial period or anytime thereafter by simply calling (800) 890-7947” after they were charged on their credit card before they knew it.
