Blogging Resource Tips
There are numerous analytic tools available on the Internet to assist in online business blogging. A valuable tool that you should use is the Alexa Toolbar. Even better, this tool is free.
Internet Tools – Blogging Strategies
I’ve been doing some blog tweaking lately. Recently I’ve installed the Alexa Internet Toolbar. Apparently it’s working out well as my Alexa rank has been steadily decreasing. Also, I’ve switched to the Wordpres Genesis theme since I’ve redesigned my blog.
If you have a blog, you might want to consider an Alexa toolbar download to improve your SEO and stats. Theoretically, the Alexa toolbar isn’t spyware as it doesn’t retrieve any private or personal information.
Alexa blog is owned by Amazon, and ranks sites from 1 to 5,000,000 and sometimes higher. Ranking #1 has the most traffic while anything below 250,000 and you should be getting some decent traffic levels on your statistics report. This information can be used to determine how well your advertising campaigns are going and how your traffic levels are growing over a period of time. Since I sometimes write product reviews and have a PR Media Kit, I monitor these statistics and update my Media Kit periodically.
This information can also be used to determine how your fellow bloggers are doing and keep you one step ahead of them. The tool provides you with essential information regarding any site you’re looking at, including your own. If a company approaches you claiming they have lots of traffic, you can just pull up their site and review the Alexa statistics. This allows you to verify who’s receiving a significant amount of traffic and who’s feeding you a line.
So now you want to know how do you use this tool? First, you download the Alexa Toolbar as follows:
1. Go to Alexa.com
2. Click “Download Alexa Toolbar” at the top of the page.
3. Click “Install” on the next page.
Reload the page you are viewing and the toolbar will appear across the top of your browser.
If any of your readers have the Alexa toolbar installed, any time they visit you, it will help your rankings. In turn, when you visit their sites, you’ll be building back links while helping your fellow blog buddies out.
Why not try an experiment for a month – download the toolbar and monitor one of your sites. Once you see the data you receive and the way it can be interpreted and used, you won’t know how you survived without it!
