    I don’t really understand why people are so much concerned about increasing their Alexa rank. While a good Alexa rank really matters to measure the amount of visitors a site might have, we should understand that it is more important to understand why kind of visitors a site is receiving. Because this is the only one factor that makes sure how much the site would earn.

    High Alexa rank doesn’t guarantee high earnings. It depends on various different factors. A site owner has to make sure that the site receives only the kind of visitors it needs. Even if the visitors are not high in numbers, the site can still generate enough profit.

    Also alexa rank is not something we should try to increase or we can increase. We should let it increase on its own. Because that’s how it should work.

    However, the article is pretty informative and should be helpful for anyone wanting to increase the Alexa rank.

    I am sorry if i said anything wrong. But it’s what i have learned from my experience.
