Default Does Alexa Ranking Helps In SEO?

Alexa rank will not help in SEO. Having a high or low alexa rank does not help a site one bit. It is just to attract or impress people. A low Alexa ranking means that a site has more visitors from those with the toolbar installed.

I have read in a article, which makes me surprise. I have pasted the same below.

"The best way to improve an Alexa ranking is to install the toolbar and just visit your own site a few times a day (and even better if you can get a friend to do the same) and then watch the big improvement in the siteís Alexa ranking. Make sure you do not visit your competitors site, as just visiting them will improve their ranking! This makes a mockery of the Alexa rankings."

What is your feedback on the same.?

Google rank has nothing to do with Alexa rank.

I am sure that alexa rank will not in seo. It shows global rank. If any website have alexa rank less than 1000000 then your site have a good rank.

Less than 1000000 means site rank for the keywords?

Default Alexa rank and SEO

Alexa is just a tool like any other that you can use to evaluate your positioning. installing a tool bar and hitting your website may be a bug that can affect this ranking but it has very little impact on your websites ability to attract users and increase your sales opportunities.

Focus on good content.

Yes, good content for a site always plays an important role in ranking a website in search engines. After the recent panda update, the content which is ranking for the keywords will not help anymore in ranking. Google panda is simply nothing but "saying good bye to low quality content".

You should concentrate more on your content and building links the natural way and not on any other factor like Alexa Rank. As all these things automatically improves if you are sharing good content on the web.

I also do agree with the statement of borgninestallon that Alexa Rank is completely misguiding and can be improved by downloading their Toolbar.

Hi Friends,

There is no relationship b/w Alexa ranking and Google Page ranking. Alexa ranking won't help in SEO page ranking. If you installed Alexa toolbar and submit your site, then the rankings may differ. You can view the traffic and visitors status as a supporting tool. That's all Alexa toolbar is useful.

Thanks and Regards

Many webmasters think alexa rank is very much important to improve SERPs.But there is no relation between alexa rank and search engine ranking.Alexa rank just shows how much popular your website and getting traffic and gives a rank according to that.But we can not rely on those stats because those stats are never exact.Alexa picks data from only those PCs where alexa toolbar has installed.
