When it comes to what you need to know when it comes to getting traffic, it’s important to know the difference between the Alexa and Google analytics. By this you can figure out what you need to do in order for you to get more visitors. And you know what that means…. Lets look at the differences between the two….
What would you do to make your blog popular?
If you’re trying to monetize your blog, you want to target who you’re writing to and get as much of that targeted traffic you can.
There are so many bloggers, including myself at one point, who are running around pulling their hair trying to figure out how to get traffic to their site. There are so many tips out there that it can be overwhelming to all of us, especially beginners.
You have your blog set up, and maybe write 2 or 3 times a week or a month, but yet you get “No Shows” or very little traffic and this can be very frustrating. So what do you do in a case.
This is a time to figure out how you can measure how well your blog is doing and what you can do about it to make it better as far as getting more traffic.
Well this is where the Alexa Rating and Google Page Rating comes into play.
Now from what I learn and for you to get an understanding, Alexa and Google page rating are really estimates of how well your blog is doing. Sometimes the numbers aren’t as accurate as you want them to be, but it gives you an idea of how much you want to go about promoting and tweaking your marketing campaign.
The more accurate approach when figuring out your analytics as far as traffic goes is to know how much unique visitors came to your blog. You can find this using the Absolute Unique Visitors Report within Google Analytics.
But for now let’s go into the differences between these to ratings.
As I did, and many of you may have thought that the Alexa and Google Rating were pretty much the same. I thought the only difference between them was the name itself LOL. The main difference between the two is what do they analyze and estimate.
When it comes to the Alexa Rating their main concern is how many visitors are coming to your blog. They want to know how many people are coming to your website and they rate that accordingly. Their ratings is in descending count where one million would be the least amount of traffic coming and 1 being the high amount of traffic coming to your blogsite.
Now on the other hand when it comes to Google Page Ranking, they measure the number of quality, relative incoming links according to your niche that are coming to your site. They based their Page Rank (PR) on a scale of 1 to 10, where 10 being the best and 1 being the worst.
Now as far as how many times they rank your site, Alexa Ranking is a lot more frequent than Google Page Ranking. From what I noticed, the alexa ranking is just about almost everyday, while google page ranking is between 3 or 4 times a year.
Now it’s Your Turn!
I hope this gives you a better understanding of the difference between the alexa rating and google page ranking. Did you think they were the same before? Did you believe they were right on target as far as ranking goes or did you already know they were estimates of how well your blog is doing?
