How to increase your Alex traffic rank?

In my post Alexa Rank which I wrote less than a month ago I have decided to improve my Alexa traffic rank from 2.7 million to below 1 million. As you can see, this goal was reached in less than 3 weeks (my Alexa traffic rank is just above 900,000 right now). The Alexa traffic is rapidly continuing to improve every day! How did I do it? Was it hard and expensive to do? No. Not at all. Just follow four steps, easy!
  1. Install the Alexa Toolbar for Firefox or Internet Explorer. Make sure you browse your site every day. Ask your friends to do the same. Every time you browse your site, Alexa Toolbar will communicate your visits to the Alexa Ranking Engine, which will update your ranking.
  2. Make sure you promote your website among the webmasters, who are likely to use the Alexa Toolbar. One of the best webmaster communities from which I benefitted a lot is housed by linkreferral.com The nice thing about this tool is that you have the option to use it for free.
  3. Make sure you backlink with other webmasters. It will keep traffic and other webmasters coming to your pages. In order to see your link in this blog, visit About Link Back Link.
  4. If you can afford it, launch a small Google AdWords campaign. You can keep your budget small. Put a limit on daily expenditures. Also, make sure you keep a prudent limit on the amount you are willing to pay per each click. My advice is to keep the limit at 10 cents per click.

Advantages of hosting with Blogger

Have you ever wondered why so many people are hosting their blogs with Blogger? Here are the answers:

  1. Blogger is free. OK, but there are other free services.
  2. No forced advertisement on blogs.
  3. A fairly liberal monitoring policy which reduces the risk that someone will shut-down your blog because they don´t like it.
  4. Your blogs are there to stay. Unlike paid services, you don´t have to worry that you will lose your blog because of a missed monthly hosting payment.
  5. Also, if something happens to you, e.g. you win a lottery and give up blogging, your posts will stay, unless you decide to delete the blog.
On this happy note, here is the latest link.

How to get indexed by search engines?

Following a question on search engine indexing, here´s my answer.

Is it easy to get indexed? Yes. Follow these steps:
  1. Write something original, don´t just copy paste from Wikipedia (many people do) or steal the content from other people.
  2. Exchange links with at least one indexed site. You can check whether the site is indexed by copying some of its content and pasting it into the search bar. Try the main search engines. If the site is indexed, it will come up at the top of search results.
How long does it take?
  1. For very popular sites, indexing is frequent. If your site has not been indexed yet, it might take time. Exchanging links could help to get noticed by search engines.
  2. I checked my previous posts and all of them have been indexed. This means that if your link was posted in my previous posts, the search engines would have visited you by now.
How to get a link on linkbacklink.blogspot.com?
  1. Just follow simple instructions which you can find in About Link Back Link.
