You can do it!!  Especially if all of us with Alexa toolbars visit you often!

I went from 2.3 million in March to 138 now.  This is what I did (copy and pasted from my blog)

 

1) Install the Alexa Tool Bar and visit your site at least daily.

2) Claim your site on Alexa.

3) Install the Alexa widget on your site

4) Post regularly, at least once a week, more is better.

5) Create links to your site by:
 a) Listing your site in free directories
 b) Getting listed on website or blog top lists
 c) Publishing articles with your link in the author box.
 d) Commenting on other people's blogs.
 e) Posting a link to your site on forums or within your forum profiles.
 f) Answering questions on sites like Yahoo Answers and siting your url as a resource.
 g) Using social media and social bookmarking sites.

 

I also visited all the sites where I knew I had backlinks with the browser that had the Alexa Toolbar.  No idea if that works but I felt like I was showing Alea where my links were :) 

 

Submit to DMOZ and Google directories too if you have not already.

PA and DA?  Is that like page views, daily visitors, etc?  A lot of the programs I work with look at Google Analytics to see how many visitors I get.  But they also do take Alexa into account and Google Page rank.  Along with this they also look at how many social media followers I have.

Do any seasoned Alexa Veterans have any advice for me?  I have been working on my Alexa since March.  I went from 2.3 million to 145K globally and I am at 30K in the US.  I feel like I have plateaued. My score has not really budged since them.  My links in seem to go up by a few each week but the score stays the same. 

 

Any tips for pushing through to the next level?

I know Yakezie challenge is all about Alexa. But, lately I haven't seen an interest in market for Alexa rank. It's all about PA and DA lately. Advertises have easy access to your SE visitor numbers, then don't go by Alexa rank. 

 

So, just concentrate on webmaster tool, DA and PA. And stop worrying about Alexa or any other rank. Even when some look at it, the moment they find Yakezie logo on the site, it doesn't matter any more.

Hi everyone,

 

My name is Steve and I've been blogging over at Kapitalust (formerly The Silver Maple Leaf) for 1 year and 1 month. I think I heard about Yakezie when I started back in July 2013 but didn't look much into it. I went through a bit of a blogging crisis, almost quit, and now back with a refocused sense of what I am doing and writing about!

 

My Alexa ranking is 940,061 and I hope to have it below 200,000 by the time the 6 month challenge is up!

 

I'll be announcing my Yakezie challenge in tomorrow's weekly roundup post!

Thanks for having me everyone!

Hi everyone,

I'm Nina and I blog at RichLife.io. I'm interested in joining the challenge but my blog is so new (a month and two weeks) that I am not even ranked in Alexa yet. Should I wait until I get ranked to make my announcement post or can I already get started? Do I understand correctly that to be eligible to join I need to make a blog post announcing it and then after 6 months join in the next round of invites? It seems like a great way to hold yourself accountable so I'd like to start off on the right foot.

Hey Yakezie Challengers,

We're back! It's been a while (two kids and a new house later), but I'm ready to tackle this challenge and win this time. My rank is currently, 525,037 now. I've been blogging since 2010 – but not with the consistency that is needed. My internal goal is to reach 200,000 by the end of the year. I've been less than focused on blogging and hopefully reconnecting with the challenge will change that!!! Here goes…Wink

Hi.  A few minutes ago I wrote a very long post here giving you all my blogger life story.  Somehow it disappeared, it seems. Isn't that always the way?  So, I will now post a shorter version, which is probably better for everyone :)

 

I actually undertook my own personal Alexa Challenge back in March.  I blogged about this. However, I am not sure if I should post the link because I suspect that might be why my post disappeared before.  Suffice to say that in March my rank was 2.3 million globally and over 300K in the US.  Today my rank is 144K globally and 30K for the US.

 

I have been blogging for a very long time (over ten years) but really only committed to it 100% (I dropped all my other work at home jobs) for a little over a year. 

 

I look forward to being a part of this community and connecting with others.  I'd love to read and comment on other blogs and share them, too!  Is there a specific forum I should be heading to so that I can do this?  I am literally brand new and still feeling my way around.

Awesome progress. Looking forward to making more progress with this challenge this time.

I started the challenge originally a year ago, but had to take a hiatus after just a few months. I probably should have re-joined when I started back up again in April with a 600,000+ rank, but oh well! I'm currently at 180,548 and am ready to get below 100,000!

Hi Ben,

I'm restarting as well. Looks like you've been on fire. Looking forward to restarting the challenge.

Hi! I'm Sarah and I'm joining in on the challenge. My website is brand new so I don't even think I am ranked on Alexa. Excited to see where this challenge takes me and looking forward to meeting fellow bloggers!

 

Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Hi Sarah,

Welcome. Good luck to you. Hope you find this challenge helpful. Make sure you add your site (and other social media networks) to your welcome message so others can connect with you.

I responded to your other post (just FYI).

Hi I'm Lance with http://www.healthywealthyincome.com (site born in late July) and I'm starting out on the challenge!  I'm from Utah and watching the leaves change colors in the mountains.  

Officially I am at 328,716 on Alexa today, but I was around 2.5 million when I first got the alexa bar last month.  I look forward to seeing how far I can get.
