Alexa Rank


I have been working for a little while now at increasing the visibility of – One factor from my years of research into SEO and tools for the promotion of websites on line has been the Alexa Rank of domains. Just as Google creates a set of indexes and pigeon holes in which the search engine owners pigeon hole your site, then similarly the ranking of your site by domain is important as well, this is a factor for consideration in ranking within various search engines.

On 17th May 2015 was ranked on as 9,910,064 – this was before any intervention by myself and now since plugging away at promoting in various ways both on Social Media and elsewhere this is now what is seen today Sunday 14th June 2015:

Alexa Rank
Alexa Rank 15th June 2015

That is 2,012,059, a change of over 7 MILLION places in Alexa Ranking Order in just under one calendar month.
