Why Alexa Is More Important To Me Than Google Page Rank

First off I would like to mention that I’m not all that fussed with either of them, but of the two I much prefer Alexa. The main problem I have with Google‘s Page Rank is the way it seems to dominate some bloggers lives. They are so taken up with trying to improve their PR that it affects their blogging style, or worse still, ruins their blogging experience. I noticed long ago that I became a much better and happier blogger once I stopped worrying about PR.

With Alexa it’s entirely different as it’s rating is supposedly due to the amount of traffic that your blog receives. Most people assume that it’s all derived from those surfers who have the Alexa Toolbar installed on their browser. If this is the sole method Alexa uses to acquire data then I would say it was rather limiting as toolbars are only available on Firefox and Internet Explorer.

I have several blogs and so I decided to compare the Alexa Rating of the two busiest ones, this one and What A Load Of Bullshit. Of the two Wassup Blog has the better ranking 71,076 compared to 431,546, but of the two What A Load Of Bullshit gets more traffic. If this is the case why does Wassup Blog have the better ranking? Surely it can’t be because there are more people with the toolbar that visit one blog over the other?

A couple of months back I started to increase my posting frequency to see if that would increase my ranking. I figured more posts would generate more visits which would in turn increase the ranking as more visits equals more traffic. I can safely say it worked as my ranking went from 120,000 to just over 60,000. Unfortunately I was unable to keep the momentum up due to things happening in my offline life and once I slacked off I noticed my Alexa ranking starting to slowly increase.

So on these findings I could make the assumption that posting frequency increases your Alexa Ranking but I know that Mitch of I’m Just Sharing posts more frequently than I do and yet his Alexa Ranking is 115,681, and whist I don’t have access to his Google Analytic my Cool Blog Links site shows that Wassup Blog gets more traffic than he does although still not as much as my Load of Bullshit blog.

This gets me to thinking that perhaps there is another or several factors that Alexa uses in it’s algorithm? If you think about it they would be pretty silly to just rely on one factor, their Alexa Toolbar, to base the way they rank individual sites, although one can safely say that traffic has a lot to do with it.

So, I got to thinking, what is it about my site that differs so much from Mitch’s that enables me to outrank him? The answer could well be  because I have Alexa’s widget, as can be seen in my sidebar, installed on my sites where Mitch does not. This leads me to assume that the widget passes on certain information to Alexa, information that is used to help gauge a more accurate ranking.

So, although my Load Of Bullshit site get’s more traffic than Wassup Blog I update it a lot less frequently. Could it be that the Alexa widget is able to pick up when new posts are made using that as one of the many factors in it’s algorithm?

    1. Thanks for the link Ray. I noticed that the site mentioned a couple of times that they uses the Alexa Toolbar and ‘other traffic data sources’ so one could assume that the widget could well be one of the other sources?
      .-= Sire´s last blog ..Why Alexa Is More Important To Me Than Google Page Rank =-.

  1. I definitely think there is truth to the Alexa widget making some difference. When I installed it on my site, my ranking improved by millions in a matter of weeks. But then again there are plenty of sites with a four digit Alexa ranking that don’t have any Alexa widgets.
    I read on another blog that having MA rated ads, images or themes has some effect on Google Page rank. Do you think that might impact Alexa’s “site definition” of Load of Bullshit”, affecting its ranking, too?
    .-= Aaron´s last blog ..IHRSA 2010 =-.

    1. Hey Aaron, one can always assume that those other sites already have a huge amount of traffic that enables them to have a good ranking. Who knows, perhaps if they were to install the widget their rank may go down even more.

      As to my other site, domain name aside it doesn’t really have any MA content. I leave that for my Top Sexual Aids Blog :laugh_tb:
      .-= Sire´s last blog ..Own A Lumix? Get Involved In Lumix Life Focus On Australia =-.

  2. For as long as I have revenues coming in from Adsense and Chitika everyday, I’ll be okay. Sometimes during the days when pageviews are up, the CTR is worse. I only get worried when unique visits dwindle overtime and hits my revenue earning potential but in terms of Alexa rank, I’m done fantasizing the 100k mark.
    .-= Mathdelane @Software Critics´s last blog ..HOW TO: Remove Fake Antivirus Software =-.

    1. Shit, you get revenue from them everyday? I wish it was coming in everyday. Still, blogging isn’t all about the money now, is it?

      1. You may not have daily revenue coming in from both ad networks but still you’re better in terms of affiliate marketing where I suck a lot. LOL :)

        Blogging has influenced me a lot in many ways though it’s something that I personally don’t talk about not even in my blog, let’s just say it’s something special to me.
        .-= Mathdelane @Software Critics´s last blog ..HOW TO: Export Bookmarks Between Web Browsers Easily =-.

        1. Just lucky as far as affiliate marketing goes I reckon. Still, I wouldn’t give up on it, you just have to find the right product.

  3. This is what I know from Alexa. Among the factors you have already mentioned, one other ranking factor that Alexa uses is the “location” of the traffic. In your example, Mitch’s traffic probably comes more heavily from the US and your blog probably gets traffic evenly from many different countries. In this case, your overall rank will be better because of the different location sources your blog has. Therefore the more traffic you get from international users, the better your ranking will be, despite apparently having more visitors. Hope that adds up to something useful:)
    .-= DiTesco´s last blog ..iBlogZone Moving To WordPress =-.

    1. Although that could be a possibility DiTesco, I’m not sure how accurate that statement would be as both our blogs are non niche related and therefore would probably pull traffic from different sources.

      After checking Google Analytic the bulk of my traffic comes from the States, almost double of what I get from Australia. Then comes England, followed by the Philippines, India, Canada etc. Perhaps Mitch can give us his stats to see if your theory holds true.

      1. That would actually be a good idea, Mitch providing a little about his stats to see if all this theory about Alexa has some truth in it. My Traffic comes primarily from India, US, UK and Australia (that will be you, lol).
        .-= DiTesco´s last blog ..iBlogZone Moving To WordPress =-.

        1. Well, I’m glad I was able to add to the mix :laugh_tb:

  4. This brings me back. I used to care a lot about both PR and Alexa. Then I started to focus on search rankings. PR stayed the same, Alexa tanked and traffic is Way Up. So I guess in terms of eyeballs Alexa could use some major improvements. I used to have my blog about 90k Alexa now I have no idea where it is at, perhaps 300+k I don’t know. I don’t really care either. I get much more traffic than I did with 90k that come in for specific terms like marketing ideas, vs some random hitting the stumbleupon button. I think both PR and Alexa are not worth the time and effort to improve if they don’t get you more of what you really want.
    .-= The Real Josh´s last blog ..Firing on all cylinders online in order to increase your presence and sales =-.

    1. Like I said at the beginning of the post Josh, I like you am not really fussed one way or the other with either of them. Of the two however Alexa allows me to blog without cramping my style. All I’ve done is place the widget there and then gone on with my blogging without a second thought to whether it would affect my ranking from either Google or Alexa.

      I don’t even worry about traffic from the search engines, although I welcome them with open arms :wink_ee: as they’re not likely to comment. As I love the interaction I much prefer the traffic from other bloggers, although these are less likely to click on any ads.

    1. You know me Spooky, always willing to help out a damsel in distress, or was that out of disdress :devil_tb:

  5. I personally don’t bother with either. I do use Alexa to see which sites have links to my competitors, though.

    So many bloggers and site owners are super-obsessed with the Google PR – they use is as a tool to determine if your site is worthy of linking to. I say: if you find a site that your visitors may benefit from then by all means put a link to it within your site.

    By the way, I haven’t been here for a few weeks and just noticed the pretty pick header. Then I noticed the Easter eggs so now I realize what the deal is.

    1. Yep, that’s what I like about this them Kathleen, I can change it’s whole appearance with the click of a mouse. So far I’ve got one for Easter, Christmas and Halloween. When I have time I will work on St. Patrick’s Day, Valentines etc.

      As to too may bloggers stressing unnecessarily with PR, I have to agree. They will be much happier once they stop worrying over it.

  6. Sire I may have to agree with the effects of the Alexa sidebar widget.In fact with the real number of people that come to my blog I shouldn’t even be under 100K to be honest :)Thanks for being one of the coolest bloggers on this PlANET :) You always show up @ the right time Thanks
    .-= John Sullivan´s last blog ..UnderGround training lab =-.

    1. No worries John, I’m glad that I am able to help whenever I can. It makes everything worthwhile.


  7. Twitter:
    Hey Sire,

    You probably don’t remember my article on Alexa from last March, but I also checked things out back then. Most language from Alexa stated that they had taken away some of the power the toolbar brought users because most people had discounted them for that very reason. Many of those folks lost some of their rankings at the time as things became a bit more balanced.

    I think it’s not only the traffic, but the number of people you get commenting here. You get way more responses than I do, from all over the place, and I think DiTesco stated it properly when he said that most of my traffic is from the U.S., whereas yours is more international based on your original location. And, if you look at it, your Alexa ranking really started to jump after you had those two really big posts that got hundreds of responses; you know the two. :ponder_tb:
    .-= Mitch´s last blog ..Workshop/Webinar In May =-.

    1. Yeah, I know the two, but that traffic was pretty short lived and I reckon it really started dropping when I increased my posting regime, which increased my comments thereby increasing the traffic. Something that that little widget was able to pick up on.


      1. Twitter:
        Well, what I’m getting at is that one of the Alexa criteria is links and the like, and man, you got a lot of links from those people as well as to you, and it all helped a lot. I mean, you even got the PB coming here, and look at how many people wrote about you and that post, including me, on their blogs at the time. And those links remain.
        .-= Mitch´s last blog ..Klout =-.

        1. I ain’t arguing with you Mitch, I know better :laugh_tb:

  8. I have to be honest and say that I still know nothing about PR. I think it was on here that I first learned what the initials even meant ;)

    As for Alexa, I’m trying very hard to ignore it simply because I’ve had to reduce posting frequency a little and like you found, it has had an effect on our Alexa rating. I don’t like that so I try not to look ;)
    .-= Eleanor Edwards @ GiveABrick´s last blog ..Why I spent the last 23 minutes singing in the kitchen while my children quarrelled outside =-.

    1. I still look Eleanor, but it doesn’t bother me. If my theory is correct I know what’s causing it and how to rectify it.

    1. I reckon that’s your best bet Pete.

  9. Over the years I think Alexa has improved its estimates of site traffic quite a lot. Traffic graphs from Alexa can now match the graphs from google analytics quite well. The importance of pagerank imho is that, if you have a big site, there is a limit to the number of pages google will index in such a way that they’ll show up in the search results. The higher a big site’s PR, the higher is the number of pages that will perform in the SERPS long tail.

    1. Thanks for adding your viewpoint Jim. I think that while PR is important to a lot of people I personally think it’s a waste of time. If you think about the ones that it should matter to the most, the casual surfer, don’t even know it exists. In other words, the only ones who really care are bloggers and webmasters who do all they can to improve their rank.

  10. I have been super busy with work lately and it’s dropped my posting frequency to just about nothing as of late, my Alexa ranking has started to show signs of “something” as my position has decreased. It did take three weeks to really start to show the drop though.
    .-= Extreme John @Blogging CEOS´s last blog ..UFC 111 Recap =-.

    1. That’s pretty well the way I saw it happening John, a little bit at a time. Which is a good thing as it gives you time to rectify it. With PR once it changes it’s too late, and there is no guarantee that you hard work will get it back again.

  11. Yep, there has been “rumors’ for quite some time about the widget magically lowering rank; it worked for me on DSWM. :)
    .-= Dennis Edell @ Direct Sales Marketing´s last blog ..Holy Power Outage Batman, Not Again! Yep, Another Two Days Shot to Hell… =-.

    1. There you go, another blogger adding to the mix saying that the widget actually works. :wink_ee:


      1. Twitter:
        I just noticed you have those Amazon.com widgets running too. Do you think those could have anything to do with it? Same company.

        1. I don’t think they would Brian, but then again who knows what they’ve put into those codes.


          1. Twitter:
            I added the rank widget and one that asks for reviews. I’ll see if if it helps at all. If not I’ll add a product widget too.
            .-= Brian D. Hawkins@List Of My Blogging Friends´s last blog ..Are You A Blogging Friend To The Extreme Ezine? Get On The List! =-.

            1. Didn’t know there was a widget that asked for reviews. That’s interesting.

      2. Just don’t grab the widget that also shows incoming link numbers; it is incredibly inaccurate and can make ya look real bad.

        It showed like 300 for DSWM when it was in the thousands. lol
        .-= Dennis Edell @ Direct Sales Marketing´s last blog ..Attention Readers of all Kinds! – Multiple Articles Comin’ Atcha!! =-.

        1. Yeah, I’ve never liked that particular widget as all I was interested in was the rank.

    2. Yet I installed the widget and it hasn’t helped at all. My rank is like 1.6 million. I was getting pretty close to 500K a year ago, yet traffic is slightly up.

      When I installed the widget I didn’t notice any difference and in fact Alexa says my traffic is down since the widget was installed but it is up.

      Here’s my theory. Who is coming to your site? Sites about blogging and sites that would appeal to more technically minded people are going to draw more people who use the toolbar.

      Do you have the toolbar Sire? I bet you do. When I was commenting here a lot and you were visiting my site more in return, Alexa said I rated highly in Australia.
      .-= Ned Carey´s last blog ..2010 Howard County Tax Sale Anounced =-.

      1. Yes I do Ned, but I don’t think that’s the whole answer. As I said in the post my BS sites gets more visitors but this site ranks better, and yet both sites displays the widget. That’s why I made the assumption in the post that perhaps it is able to determine which sites has newer content and adjusts the ranking accordingly. I say this because I do update this blog more often than the other.

        Then there is my Scenic Adelaide blog which also gets a lot of traffic but ranks even lower and doesn’t display the widget.

        EDIT: Sorry Ned what I thought was the Alexa tool bar turned out to be a third party add on. Not to worry though as I’ve just now installed it so my Alexa rating should now go through the roof LOL

      2. Well a quick look at the Load of BS blog tells me that more of the general public would be interested in it. However this blog which has a lot of how to blog/how to make money blogging will attract a much higher percentage of serious bloggers.

        I suggest the readership of this blog is more likely to have the Alexa toolbar and that is what causes this blog to have a higher ranking.

        Of course as you sarted out in the post it just isn’t that important either way. What matters in not your ranking but how much traffic you acctually get.
        High rank no traffic = Bad
        Low rank high traffic = Good
        And that is true whether we are talking Google, Alexa or anything else.
        .-= Ned Carey´s last blog ..2010 Baltimore City Tax Sale Announced =-.

        1. That’s quite possible Ned, reckon we will never know. Maybe I should run a poll. Now there’s an idea. Thanks mate.


  12. Twitter:
    My Alexa rank has always been high on my blogs. Truthfully I haven’t done much to lower it. I thought the toolbar wasn’t a factor any more. I read that about a year ago, I don’t remember where. I just installed it on my firefox lol

    As far as the widget, you will be seeing that on the Extreme Ezine :)

    Like Mitch mentioned, links must have something to do with it or why else would they track it? Their widget displays the links in.

    Do you think reviews has anything to do with our alexa ranks? I would encourage everyone to run over and review my blog on alexa as a test lol

    For the most part, I wasn’t interested in alexa rank. Then I began to see many of you dropping way down there and I see no reason to stay behind.
    .-= Brian D. Hawkins´s last blog ..Google Alert Shows Blog Comments Are Indexed =-.

    1. Actually, the review may have a factor in it. I may have to do a post requesting review exchanges, you do one for me and I will do one for you type of thing.

  13. I’m just starting to get into a lot of blogging and I don’t really care about the PR. Traffic is more important in my eyes. I figure if I have good content and create a good environment around my blog then it will do fine. I’m also blogging for fun. I don’t really plan on making money through blogging. If I was blogging to make money then I would probably pay attention to the numbers a little more.
    .-= Anthony @ Innovatively Simple´s last blog ..Things I’d Rather Do #1 =-.

    1. I’ve seen your blog and I reckon you’ll do fine for sure. Traffic is certainly better than PR as the more traffic you have the more likely you’re going to get some interaction.

  14. Sire you have mentioned really some good point, we can not believe on google page rank but can believe on alexa rank. Many bloggers just blogging since a long time, but their page rank do not increase, but even some bloggers gain good PR within a few months. So bloggers upset when they do not see any PR improve on their blog.

    But Alexa ranking system is quite simple, that you mentioned here posting frequency greatly matter on alexa rank, my blog alexa rank was very good before, but as my posting frequency going decrease my alexa rank also going decrease. That means if you busy on your blogging work you can expect your alexa rank increase.
    .-= chandan´s last blog ..10 Work from Home Money Makers =-.

    1. That’s right Chandan, people usually feel better about certain things if they see something change due to something that they’ve done. Unfortunately that’s not always possible with Google whereas it is with Alexa.

      Either way it shouldn’t matter as long as you enjoy blogging.

  15. Hi Sire,

    I find it interesting that you care more about Alexa ranking than Google page rank.

    I’m of the opposite view and here is why: Google page rank is about trust. How trustworthy is your site or blog. It doesn’t care about how much traffic you get.

    Alexa, on the other hand is largely about traffic. When I compare the data I get from Google Analytics with those I get from Alexa, there is such disparity that one of them must be grossly inaccurate.

    My research has shown that it’s Alexa. Their tool bar data features predominantly in how they rank. Their widget makes the ranking slightly more accurate.

    Those who don’t have the widget seem to get better rank which is very puzzling but from what you wrote it can sometimes be the other way.

    I would say that the more visitors having the tool bar installed you have the better Alexa ranking you’ll get.

    If your friend Mitch gets mostly visitors without the tool bar and you get more visitors with it, your Alexa ranking will be much better even if the overall number of visitors is the same or even higher on Mitch’s blog.

    The same would apply to your other What A Bunch Of B.S. blog.

    I hope that Alexa will start using more data for their ranking and that it will use only accurate data. Lately I’ve seen some changes they’ve made but they don’t indicate any improvement but rather impairment in the readings.

    My hope is that their work on it is still in progress.

    .-= Vance@Gurus Nightmare Report´s last blog ..Marketing With Alex 3.0 Preview, Gurus Nightmare Alex’s New Ebook =-.

    1. I care more for Alexa because it doesn’t affect the way I blog. I don’t even have to worry about it. With PR it’s different, too many people obsess about it and for what, so they can show it off to everybody?

      I don’t see how you can say that PR is about trust. Where does trust come into it. I’ve seen sites with no or little PR that are a lot better than sites ranked higher than them. Sometimes sites with higher PR simply know how to play the system or have other people do it for them.

      As to the widget, if Alexa does use it to monitor traffic, and I’m not saying that they do, what could be more accurate than having a widget installed on your site?

      1. About Alexa and their widget: I still have it on my blog, but before I put it there I did some investigating as to what other bloggers had to say about it.

        And they were almost evenly split. I don’t remember the exact numbers but it stuck to my mind that two A bloggers whom I both respect had opposite views and the more junior one finally kind of conceded that the one who decided to remove the widget had a point.

        They finally agreed that the accuracy was questionable.

        I know that it’s questionable because sometimes when Google Analytics shows I’m getting more traffic, Alexa indicates that my traffic is down. Unless there is a considerable delay in what Alexa shows, I have to say that it stinks.

        Moreover, the most prevalent search keyword for my blog visitors according to Alexa doesn’t show in Google Analytics at all. I choose to trust Google.

        As for the PR, yes it can be manipulated for quite a long time but any manipulation of Google is temporary.

        The PR trust is based on the quality of links the blog or site has which indicate the neighborhood of it, what company it keeps.

        Since robots do the crawling and rating it is not perfect and that is why the content of some low ranking blogs and sites can be much better than the content of high ranking ones.
        .-= Vance@Gurus Nightmare ´s last blog ..Marketing With Alex 3.0 Preview, Gurus Nightmare Alex’s New Ebook =-.

        1. I’m not sure what the delay is with Alexa’s recording but I think that Google’s analytic is delayed about 24 hours. As to Google getting PR right, I reckon it’s accuracy there is pretty suspect as well.

          Like I said at the beginning although neither of them bother me all that much I still prefer Alexa over Google.
          .-= Sire´s last blog ..Win A Trip For Two To Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion =-.

    1. Naturally one would expect more from Alexa than just using data from a toolbar. Sure that would have some influence but to assume that it’s the only piece of data they use is weird.

  16. This conversation reminds me of the DoFollow – NoFollow debate. I get confused!

    I look at my Alexa ranking every day as a way to gauge what’s happening whenever I make a change. I have the widget and the toolbar installed. I link out to people through blog carnivals that I’ve recently started. I guest post a lot. My Alexa is heading in the right direction. I don’t know what Alexa does behind the scenes. It makes my head hurt when I think about it too much.

    By the way, I just noticed your number of comments for your Top Posts. Wow! I feel like a comment groupie now. I’ll be back. I like to follow the crowd :D
    Whatever they’re measuring, I’m happy with the mix of things I’m doing to impact it to go in the right direction.
    .-= Cheryl @ blogging tips´s last blog ..blogging tips from expert bloggers – get attention from people who can’t see =-.

    1. Yeah, I’ve seen those nofollow dofollow arguments and to tell you the truth it’s not worth getting involved, Best thing to do is go with your gut and do what you think is best for your blog.

      As to how Alexa works, best not to worry about it, just keep doing what your doing and let Alexa do it’s thing.

      Thanks for dropping by, always love to see a smiling face.

    1. You and me both Jayce.

  17. Alexa definitely uses other factors besides traffic. I know another blogger that definitely gets twice the traffic I do, yet my site has a better Alexa ranking, which I’m not complaining about in the least. But there are other factors – I have no clue what they are.

    One thing that I think hurts blogs trying to focus on PR and SERPs is that the blog owners have to focus on one topic to get good ratings, as opposed to covering muti-faceted subjects. Plus bloggers get discouraged and even drop out of blogging altogether when Google dings them, whether or not they have lots of readers, comments, or other factors that prove their blog is good, no matter what Google says.
    .-= Kikolani@Blogging Tips´s last blog ..Fetching Friday – Resources Mashup & Getting Hot on Sphinn =-.

    1. And that is exactly why I don’t worry about Google. I just had an email from them saying that they’ve deactivated ads on my Top Sexual Aids site which I thought I had removed anyway as it only ever displayed public ads but it appears I had missed one. If I was anyone else their actions may have hurt my feelings. :laugh_tb:

  18. That’s some pretty interesting observation. I used to think that the Alexa ranking was based solely on traffic, and I’m sure a lot of people do.
    .-= Scott´s last blog ..Compare Forex Trading Software =-.

    1. That’s probably true Scott, but I reckon Alexa uses more than just traffic when coming up with it’s stats.

  19. Hey Sire,

    I use alexa mainly as a guide to have an idea of where I’m heading in terms of traffic. I also use it as a motivational tool especially since my blog is new. Its really cool to see my ranking improve everyday, it gives me the drive to keep working. :)

    Its a pity that google analytics does not give ranking comparisons with other sites because I think it would me more accurate. I also conducted an experiment on a couple of sites I built and found that alexa was just way off. Check it out on my blog and let me know what you think: http://samswebguide.com/2010/03/02/alexa-traffic-rankings-inaccurate-room-for-improvement/

  20. It goes to show you though how inaccurate Alexa is. I have the same situation where I have a website that gets 4 times the traffic of another but the Alexa ranking is higher.

    But although it is not completely accurate it beats any alternative in traffic measurement.
    .-= Danny @ DoFollow Blogs´s last blog ..DoFollow Vs NoFollow Debate =-.

    1. Yep and there are times that you just have to take the best that is on offer at the time. Still, I like Alexa because it doesn’t affect my blogging style, which Google would if I was bothered with trying to better my PR.

  21. Ever since I started the Monday, Wednesday and Friday update thing on my blog, my Alexa rank has been steadily improving and now you mention that the Alexa widget might be able to give it a boost, I seriously contemplating giving it another try. It would have been better if they had some kind of tracking JavaScript you could install in your footer.php instead of using the widget.
