Yaro has posted a follow up article on the Alexa Rank experiment. This experiment involved installing an Alexa Rank Widget on your web site or blog and watching to see your Alexa Rank improved. The results appear to be mixed. Of course, this all has to be taken with a grain of salt because none of us knows for sure what factors are included in Alexa’s algorithms.
My own results have been satisfactory if not stellar. I started out with an Alexa Rank of 739,195 and right now the widget is showing a rank of 616,241. This is about a 16.6% improvement since the beginning of the experiment. It’s true that the Alexa Rank for this blog has been improving slowly over the last few months, but this appears to be the largest increase over such a short time.
If you’ve had some success or even none with this widget, let me know in the comments section.
