My Alexa Ranking Is Slowly Improving

Thanks to everyone who has given me a link on their blogs, though the number of links in since installing my Alexa Widget has been at 31 permanently my Rank is improving so it must be counting them. My Google Page Rank is still at zero hopefully that will follow in rising since the blog has become more active again and I'm listed in a few directories.

I also found out from someone who commented here that the way Alexa Ranks are decided has changed too it's not only down to toolbar users activity on your site so I have some hope at least.

I'll finish by posting this photo of Me and Justin Hawkins with my friend Roger taken when we met him after the Hot Leg Gig I went too at the Wedgewood rooms. He's a really nice bloke he even gave Roger a bottle of water while they were performing because he was sweating at the front and asked for some water, which I found quite touching, as I've seen people passing out from dehydration at gigs and being carried over the barriers and the artist doesn't even blink. In fact we probably would have died of dehydration on the way home if he hadn't given us the water as we had no money at all, we had to beg the people behind us in the que for pennies just to get on the ferry. Then we had to walk 2 miles to the venue me in these stupid stilletto heels you wouldn't belive could be so painful to look at them, then stand for the gig and walk back 2 miles to the ferry terminal. We then found we'd missed the 1am one so had to wait until 3am in the terminal, and when we finally got back we had to walk about 4 miles back from fishbourne to Ryde. So thanks again for the water Justin. :)

The journey of Alexa- The Web Information Company has never been a smooth one. Alexa that has been in the scenario almost from the start of the Web had seen immense growth and popularity and then a pretty morbid phase. However, it went back to the drawing board and sketched out new ways to pull back the company to steadiness. Several new innovations and changes have been made to Alexa since the time of its inception partly to stay in sync with the changing times and demands and partly to combat its competitors. As for example, till some time back the popularity of various websites was measured by the data collected from the users of the Alexa toolbar. However, the company went for a change in April 2008. Today other factors, apart from the Alexa toolbar, are also taken into account to determine the popularity and traffic of a given website. However, the point to ponder is that the “other sources” that are determinant of a websites Alexa rankings are not clearly cut out. They are vague and misty. Nevertheless, Alexa is still one of the most credible and powerful players of the web.
