When I started getting serious about blogging, I placed an Alexa widget on my blog to track my ranking. It was around 8 million ++. I was so embarrased that I removed the widget.
As I was doing my daily blog rounds, I read about a post by Lord Story that Alexa would only track your rankings if you have the Alexa widget installed on your blog. I immediately put it back.
Now the trick is to make it go up. Hmmm... care to share your Alexa tips?
