    Hello Preet,
    An informative blog on how to improve Alexa ranking. The steps and tips you have mentioned here are really helpful. I’m just doubtful about how much this will help. Will doing all this really lower your Alexa ranking by significant number?

      Hi Deebak,
      I understand trying to improve your Alexa ranking helps build up blogs. It wouldn’t lower it significantly. Point is it contributes to improving it.

    Hi Preet,

    It could not be better explained than this. Great Job! I am seeing my Alexa ranking dropping big way however traffic is increasing very well. I have seen many other bloggers reporting the same. Also, do you think Alexa Ranking matter these days? I could see it can be easily framed as well. Also, stats are not that accurate too. Would love to hear feedback from an expert like you.

    Best Regards,
