Financial Samurai recently launched the Yakezie Challenge…a challenge for bloggers to improve their Alexa ranking while also helping to promote other members of the challenge so they can improve their own ranking.
My goals for this challenge are as follow…
- Achieve an Alexa ranking of under 200,000
- Increase my readership and traffic
- Write some guest posts on other blogs to build my reputation
- And most importantly…network with other bloggers and make some friends.
Now I’ve never really paid much attention to Alexa rankings because I think they are flawed. But I have to admit that they hold a lot of sway in the blogosphere and having a high ranking site can open a lot of doors that would otherwise be slammed in your face.
As I start this challenge on March 8, 2010 my Alexa ranking is 1,615,590 so I have a loooong way to go to reach the top 200,000. But I’ll get there one step at a time.
I really think the Yakezie challenge is an fantastic idea. The key is for everyone involved to help each other as much as possible so we can all pull ourselves to the top together.
So you’ll be seeing lots of fellow Yakezie challenge blogs in my link roundups and posts. And if you have your own blog why not step up and join the challenge?
