    Last time I checked, my score was ‘0’. Today, mine is 18,766,246. I guess that is an improvement since at least something shows up! Thanks for the help and tips! I have installed the toolbar as recommended. You’re the best – so glad I found you on Sverve!

    Since I added the toolbar I noticed that my alexa rank has improved too! It is nice watching those numbers go down. My alexa rating was 2 million something since my blog is on the newer side. Since then it has dropped down to 1,444,307. It is a very nice improvement!

      Great increase – just look at that 1-month figure for the results over the last 30 days – awesome!

    I changed a few things on my site- so i don’t have anything past the 3 month mark. right now it is 961,000 ww and 343,000 us. i know this is down from the first check…but didn’t write it down.

      The site looks great Becky. Thanks for sharing your results. I was wondering about quilting and your site looks so bursting full of resources. Right now I just make clothes, but I do love the look of all the glorious quilts I see online – I’m not sure I have the patience for a big project. But I’ll be dropping by to see what I can learn and look for a weekend project one day.

    Don’t get too excited about Alexa. FCG was at the 100K mark, then Alexa re-organized (I think) and it dropped but then it went back up. And down… Their swings are HUGE, crazy, and most importantly theiy bare no relationship to the actual traffic that I get on my site. So, personally, I consider them ‘useless’ to ‘nice to know’… depending on my mood and what time of the day it is ha ha… ~ Rose

      I quite agree – traffic is much more important than the ranking and it is by no means an accurate way to compare one site to another. But its nice to track site metrics and having a good score is just one of the things you can promote in your media pack or on your advertising page to try to attract sponsors. Every time mine reaches a new milestone, it feels good to record that the site is growing or improving in some way.

    I couldn’t find how to get both 1 month and 3 month. As of today (almost a week plus one month), I am 8,277,466. It’s down 2,224,906. That’s progress, right? I couldn’t download the toolbar for Safari. 🙁 I could download Chrome and the toolbar, but I don’t know if that will help me if I am not normally going to use Chrome. Or will it? What is your recommendation?

    Thanks so much for linking up at Creative Wednesdays with Pink Recipe Box! I can’t believe I haven’t even heard of Alexa before. I definitely need to look into it now!

      I can see your score is really good for the US Jann, so lots of your visitors are local to you. Hope you keep improving during 2013. Deb

    Hello Everyone ,

    My website Alexa rank has dropped in the past 1 month:
    18 May, 2014: 450,000 Global Rank
    But Now:623,278 Global Rank
    Definitely something big has affected my global ranking and I’m not able to figure it out.
    Please help.

      Have you suddenly had a lot less traffic than before? Or had one or two really popular posts last month that have now trailed off? Alexa is basically a traffic tracker, so perhaps the profile of your visitors has changed. Last month you were getting more visits from browsers with the toolbar and this month, not so much. It’s a bit of a mystery!


What do you think?
