Thanks Yakezie! In 18 days, the Alexa ranking for Stock Trend Investing went from above 1,200,000 (Jan 20) to under 500,000 (Feb 7).

I know that you are all used to this; or maybe not impressed by this. But for someone new here like me, it is amazing to see the effect and power of Yakezie.

Isn't Yakezie great?  Just know there's much more to get out of it beyond Alexa, that's just icing on the cake! :) 

In Gratitude,

Yakezie has helped my ranking SO much – I went from 875,000 or so to 354,000 in under a month. Plus it's helped me grow my blog obsession – I now have way too many to keep up with and they're all so great :)

Thanks Funancials. You have put in a great observational post on the double standards of car buying. That is interesting for everyone to read:

I'm already happy to play along.

That's pretty awesome. Mine's gone down 90k in three days. This really is an amazing program.

 I'm looking for editors, beta-readers, and some demographic research for my upcoming novel, Once Upon a Saturn Moon. If you like reading soft sci-fi thrillers, maybe with a touch of romance thrown in, you can find more information at…..aturn-moon

I agree with others who say that the Alexa ranking is just the beginning.  While Alexa isn't a very accurate ranking, it does act as great motivation, especially when it improved so quickly.  As you keep up what you're doing you'll also see traffic and google PR improving.  That is bound to lead to more comments, more advertising requests and more overall success for your blog.  Good luck improving that ranking even more.

Wow! Congratulations! I moved my blog since joining the challenge, so I guess I need to note my current Alexa ranking so I have a better idea of how quickly it falls. That's really incredible!

I started out the other day at 20,912,107 and today I checked and it was 2,994,272.   I was extremely discouraged the other day when i was the 20 million and i was reading on here and everyone was around 1-2 million.


I know it takes time and hopefully it will come around.
