    • Thanks Rudd for your valuable feedback. You ask in your comment that mostly top bloggers did not add alexa widget on their blogs. According to my experience alexa should increase if you have installed its toolbar. most of the advertising network like Media.net also consider it as well as if you have poor Alexa rank then your ads will not approve. Alexa widget is important in this scenario that it easily shows your reputation among the world of blogging.

  • Hi Mairaj,

    This is a very elaborative guide which is pretty simple to follow if someone is wishing to add the Alexa widget. But just wondering whether this really helps in improving your Alexa rank.

    We all know that Alexa rank is not the most important ranking factor now a days, as DA & PA are gradually taking that place. But for many a cases (like for advertisers to target a site) the site’s Alexa rank plays a very strong role.

    Thanks for sharing. Take care 🙂
