In the past few weeks, I have tried to increase my web site traffic. I have tried many ways to improve my wordpress blog and also tried to increase my Alexa traffic ranking. I have not really done anything really dramatic to increase my web site traffic. However, with some improvement and tricks, I do see my Alexa traffic ranking dramatically increase. Well. You can argue with me that those changes I made don’t do any good to my web site traffic. I can’t argue with you, because I have done some many minor changes and joined many communities. My traffic ranking was 5.5+ Million. So any changes will make it look dramatic. However, after I did a post few days ago. Increase Alexa traffic ranking by 5 million points in 10 days – Just Stumble! My Alexa traffic ranking went up to 1.2 Million. It’s still not good. However, my web site traffic boots dramatically.
Increase Alexa traffic ranking with Alexa traffic ranking – a chain reaction to boost my web site trafficPosted by : 6 Comments
For the past 7 days, I have not had any instance of down time with my blog hosted on ANHosting.com. It was great. About two weeks ago, my site was down for almost every 2-3 days. It was not a good experience while I have low traffic. I even found out that my site was not fully indexed by Google while my site was down. I look at Google Webmaster tools and found many “Network unreachable” error under Web Crawler section.
I have post many and many problems I have had on my other “Never Down” blog on Blogger.com. I have list few of the post here for you to read what was killing me.
ANHosting.com was down twice in 5 days
ANHosting is back – Two hours after cooling problem at datacenter
Experience with ANHosting.com – Two Thumbs Up!
ANHosting.com is UP
ANHosting.com down 3 times in 8 days
ANHosting.com – Power Outage for 2+ hours
ANHosting.com down again in 5 days
ANHosing Outage – Over Heating
ANhosting unreachable – No phone, no online support
I was on and off with ANhosting.com. Now I am happy with ANhosting for the past 7 days. Even better, I have made a little profit and already covered my cost to host at ANHosting.com for the whole year. Isn’t that nice? I can pretty much say that I host on ANHosting for FREE!
Is it possible to increase Alexa traffic ranking by 5 million points in 10 days? Yes. I did. What does that mean to me? Why I still think that Alexa traffic ranking won’t do any good to my site. Is Alexa traffic ranking too easy to be manipulated? Would you get more benefit from it, if you have high Alexa traffic ranking? Does it drive more traffic to your web site?

First of all, the screen of my site was old. I have since changed my blog template to the new one two months ago. So Alexa did not update my screen. As I mentioned in the previous post, I use Alexa redirect to redirect traffic to my blog. Well. The only two places I used the Alexa redirect were on that post and on MyBlogLog.com page list. I took it out on June 6th, 2007 after reading the following blogs on the Internet, which claimed Alexa does not work and sucks.
