Question About Alexa Rankings
Just a couple of newbie questions about alexa.com...
I read a lot of info about seo and a lot of people talk about this site. I was just wondering if anybody uses Alexa to gauge their sites and if it is a useful tool when it comes to optimization?
If it is,then does anyone exactly how it works? I don't know if I can believe the numbers.
About 45 days ago I really started focusing on trying to increase traffic to my site and I starting using Alexa to mark my progress so to speak.
At that time, my blog's Alexa ranking was 15,949,741.
As of today, it is now 3,052,527.
My questions are is this a good thing? And is this growth too fast or too slow? I don't use any tricks or gimmicks, and I haven't bought any "guru's 'gizmos" to increase traffic. For that matter, I don't even submit my articles to anyone. I just put it out there and I use twitterfeed to post it on my facebook page and twitter ( I only have 12 people following me on twitter).
So is alexa.com a good way to check my blog's rankings?
