Alexa Viral Train

Alexa Traffic GraphI was searching for Sohemoney's SERP scripts on Google, when I stumbled on a freelance web-designer - Darjan Panic from Slovenia, who joined an Alexa viral, link and after reading the piece, I felt that it is worth giving a try in order to improve my Alexa ranking (Agloco Hours blog is currently ranked 603,159). It is important so that we would be able to measure, in the next few weeks and months to come, if this Alexa train is really working.

The Viral Feeds and the Viral Tags really worked for my two blogs. The last three weeks has really improve the Technorati ranking and authority of my blogs. Telenovela Love Garden inched up from 19 to 31 while Agloco Hours leaped from 34 to 89.

I would be watching to see in the next one to three weeks, if this Alexa viral experiment would take my Alexa rank from the present 603,159. In the blogosphere, Alexa ranking is a major metric used by many advertising networks to determine how much money to pay you for participating in their projects.

The blogosphere has exploded with a buzz of ingenious link-building strategies in the last three months. The reason for this is the urge by bloggers to make more money with their blogging activities. Such monies would be bigger if they have higher rankings- Tecnorati, Alexa, Google page rank, etc.

Today names like Carl Ocab, the 14-yr old whizkid blogger, Gary Lee, Andy Coates, Jimmy Huen, Ilker Yoldas are all synonymous with viral trains, either, of the Technorati, Alexa, Icons, Tags, Feeds, etc. I am once again jumping into this Alexa Viral train through this post.

According to Carl:

"The idea is to make a list of bloggers with an Alexa redirect link to their
blog. We all know that if you go to a site through an Alexa redirect, the visit
is recorded by Alexa and it adds to your rankings! Cool"

To participate, just follow the rules:

Alexa Redirect Train by Carl Ocab

1. Write a short introductory paragraph about what and how you found this Alexa Train, and the benefits that would accrue to any blogger that participates in it.

2. Start copying from the “~Start Copying Here~” above, and all the things listed without removing the links (Of course, the train would be no use without those links)

3. COPY the Rules and ENTIRE List below and post it to your blog. Please, don’t change the links of the blog

4. Move all the sites labeled “Newcomers” to the list labeled “Oldies”
Add as many sites that you want to include in the train and make their link like this: then invite them to join the train.

5. Visit all the listed sites! (That’s not much work! Remember, if you plant good seeds they will also grow good) and look at your high Alexa ranking next week!
