4. Looking for backlinks
It cannot be denied that a large number of backlinks affect Alexa ranking. Maybe you have used a backlink checking site such as Ahrefs.com or Backlinkwatch.com. If you often check other people’s sites with the tool above, you will know the difference. If you have more backlinks, it is usually directly proportional to the number of visitors you attract. So it’s not surprising that this is very effective in reducing Alexa rank.
However, try looking for backlinks from blogs with high pageranks. However, backlinks from 1 blog with a page rank are of higher quality than backlinks from 10 blogs that do not have a page rank.
To find backlinks yourself, you can use blogwalking. For this you have to be careful because5 Obstacles to Blogwalking When Looking for Backlinks are ready to drain your energy. If you find it easy to write articles in large quantities, maybe guest blogging could be another smart solution. However, try guest blogging on blogs with a high page rank because the positive impact is more promising for the blog. As for looking for other backlinks, you can also be active in forums or groups.
5. Claim Alexa on the blog
A fairly effective way to reduce Alexa is to make an Alexa claim on a blog. That is, by installing the HTML code from Alexa.com which you will later install on your blog. That way, your site can continue to be monitored if readers visit it.
However, this claim will be more effective if updating articles and looking for backlinks can run consistently. Therefore, don’t expect to lose if you ignore these two important tasks.
In conclusion, although the decline in Alexa is influenced by several reasons. However, I realize that lowering Alexa rank requires a process and time. Therefore, do the best of your ability so that the blog can develop better and be popular.
