Are you in confusion whether to check Alexa Ranking or not ? Then here’s Why a Blogger Should Not Check Alexa Rank ?
Alexa is the free web tool which ranks the websites all and is well known among bloggers. It is something that every new blogger checks everyday but question is “Does it really worth ?” I’ll say a BIG no since Alexa is no more ranking website based on the number of visitors. Instead Alexa is now ranking websites and blogs through REVIEW system which is useless.
Reasons Why Blogger Should Not Check Alexa Rank
Makes A Blogger Careless
Alexa just makes a blogger careless since it will just show a good figure for rank to make the blogger believe that the blog is getting up.
Kicks Blogger Out of Competition
Since the Rank figure through reviews is false therefore it would always keep the blogger in misconception that he is getting good rank everyday and he is heading up among competitors but the scenario is all on the other side instead blogger would be getting out of competition.
No Gain in Visitors
Increasing Alexa Ranking through reviews doesn’t have any relation with the number of visitors. Alexa will just increase ranking because someone visited their website to write a review for you website. If one is smart enough to think “What he is getting” and “What Alexa is getting” then he will himself stop using Alexa Toolbar and other Addons because Alexa itself is getting traffic when someone write a review and blogger in return just gets a Fake Rank figure.
So think many times what matters much “Real Traffic” or “Fake Rank Figure“.
Instead use StatsCounter or Google Analytics as these give real stats to let you know on which niche to work and from where to get more visitors.
