Besides increasing my vocabulary of keywords for uncle Google, this topic is also good for killing my boredom after playing with script or template codes almost everyday.

In order to fulfill the curiosity of the readers who have asked about Alexa Rank, below is some writing of djenggot that deal with Alexa Rank.

What is Alexa Rank?
To define what Alexa rank is, djenggot quotes directly from and here is its original quote;
The traffic rank is based on three months of aggregated historical traffic data from millions of Alexa Toolbar users and data obtained from other, diverse traffic data sources, and is a combined measure of page views and users (reach). As a first step, Alexa computes the reach and number of page views for all sites on the Web on a daily basis. The main Alexa traffic rank is based on a value derived from these two quantities averaged over time (so that the rank of a site reflects both the number of users who visit that site as well as the number of pages on the site viewed by those users). The three-month change is determined by comparing the site's current rank with its rank from three months ago. For example, on July 1, the three-month change would show the difference between the rank based on traffic during the first quarter of the year and the rank based on traffic during the second quarter.
Because the definition is directly from, so it is very accurate and trustable.
How does know the number of traffics or visits in our blog?
As the definition above, the information of visitors or traffics number in our blog is taken from alexa toolbar which has been installed in internet users. If the alexa toolbar is installed in the browser we use, then, will identify how many visitors and page view in our website or blog. After the data is collected, then the alexa machine will automatically make ranking in that website or blog.
Alexa rank starts from 1 and the best ranking is of, course one (1), the same as the ranking in school. The boy with ranking one is the most diligent student in the class. The smaller alexa rank a website or blog has, the better alexa ranking a website or blog gets or it means that ranking quality of the website or blog gets better. It is extremely opposite with google pagerank, if the page rank is high, it means the website or blog is good and has a lot of traffics or visitors. The bigger, the better.
How important is Alexa rank for a website or blog?
For those or blog owners who do not make their web or blog to look for money in the internet, Alexa rank is not important and useful. However, having a web or blog with good alexa rank could be a prestige for the owner because it shows that their web or blog is very popular. Am I right? Well. It depends on us.
For those or web or blog owners who become their web or blog to look for money, alexa rank is very important. Why is it very important? Because money giver websites, such as; Texts Link ads, Sponsored Review, ReviewMe, ask2link and others become alexa rank as the standard. Better alexa rank your web or blog has, more advertisers want to advertise in your web or blog. It means that $$$ will come to your wallet easily.
