Is Alexa Ranking Not Based On Traffic?


Hello, Blogger community I have a Question on Value of Alexa, because I am seeing many blogs with 1000 to 1500 Daily Page-view, But their Alexa rank is very good, I know some blog which have below 10k Alexa with 1000 daily Page-view, Then how we can sure that Alexa giving right ranking as value of site? and How Advertiser can believe on Alexa quality value, Thanks.

[Solved] Something about ranking of my blog

I have changed the topic title Mahendra. Can you please re-frame the question? Thank you.


What all I know about Alexa on the basis of my experience is that it’s ranking system don’t take only the traffic into account. But many other things also, like Backlinks.

Alexa’s traffic estimates and ranks are based on the browsing behavior of people in our global data panel which is a sample of all internet users.

Alexa’s Traffic Ranks are based on the traffic data provided by users in Alexa’s global data panel over a rolling 3 month period. Traffic Ranks are updated daily. A site’s ranking is based on a combined measure of Unique Visitors and Pageviews. Unique Visitors are 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 unique visitors and pageviews is ranked #1.

So the the website having less daily visitors but better Alexa might be having more number of unique visitors and backlinks.

Hope this will help you and make you understand how Alexa rank is determined @Mahendrakumar. Keep asking questions. Stay in touch.

Happy blogging! Naman Kumar

Hello guys The most important factor for improving your Alexa Ranking is Traffic but not the usual traffic. You need laser targeted traffic to your blog or website to improve your Alexa Rankings. Its the traffic from Bloggers, WebMasters, Geeks that is going to improve your Alexa. Bloggers/Web Masters are the people who install Alexa Toolbar on to their browser, so try to get traffic from them.

If you get 100 people who installed Alexa Toolbar daily then you should get a Alexa below 100,000 in the next one month.

To get Alexa Below 50,000 you should get about 200-250 per day.

To get Alexa Below 20,000 you need to get around 300-500 visits, who have installed alexa toolbar.

To get below 10,000 you need to get around 500-800 visitors per day.

If you have about 1000-1500 visitors who installed alexa toolbar then you can easily get your Alexa below 5000 in the next one month.
