You may recall that I wrote about joining the Yakezie Challenge a month ago. Part of the challenge is to reduce your Alexa rank to under 200,000. So, on either March 4th or 5th, Fat Guy Skinny Wallet, dropped below this mark approximately 29 days after entering the challenge.
What Is An Alexa Rank?
First, Alexa Internet, Inc is owned by Amazon.com. The Alexa rank is the company’s way of ranking the top sites in the world. To do this, they count the amount of traffic that a website gets, and then uses that data to establish their list of the most popular sites in the world.
As I write this (on 3.7.11), my Alexa rank is 195,764 – much lower than the 437,998 that I had when I first entered the Yakezie Challenge! My new goal is to reach 100,000 by the end of tax season (the tax return deadline is actually April 18th this year).
Unfortunately, their data is based off of Internet users who have installed the Alexa Toolbar to their browser. So, if you want to help Fat Guy Skinny Wallet, or my main site (KNS Financial) gain a better ranking, download the toolbar and visit my sites daily!
The toolbar is actually quite useful. First of all, it tells you the current Alexa rank of whatever site you are visiting at the moment, and allows you to see more data about that site (here is Fat Guy’s Alexa page – don’t forget to leave a review while you’re there). It also displays the top 10 stories of the day, and also the top 10 searches. It even links with your Facebook profile, if you’re into that.
So, not only will you help my Alexa Rank by downloading the toolbar, you’ll also get a number of benefits!
