Facebook Alexa Rank What Happened

Haven’t been a while on Facebook but today I decided to visit it and I checked its Alexa Rank. I saw it is only ranked global on 10. position. There was a time it was ranked almost better than Google. Yes Google still has the first position and Youtube second position. Google is still leading on Alexa Ranking.

I see there are a lot of chinese websites before Facebook, maybe they will as well beat Google, it’s a big market China. Yes of course Facebook is still the biggest social network worldwide, there are about 2.8 billion users. I think they don’t worry about its Alexa Rank, maybe chinese users use more the Alexa Toolbar, because Alexa only counts traffic from users with its Toolbar.

I think Facebook hasn’t lost users, but maybe they have reached the limit of growing. And there are countries they have their own big social networks and anyways there are many social networks around worldwide, it’s a big competition for them. It will be harder as well to generate income if the users use more and more adblockers.


How to improve your Alexa Rank

I don’t know my site hasn’t an alexa rank, the lower the number is the better your alexa rank is. So I write this post about alexa ranking, maybe I get a better one. I wanted to show here my rank but wordpress script doesn’t allow javascript in a post. A few years ago we were able to cheat the alexa rank with boosters and alexa traffic exchanges, but these days are over. I don’t know if you improve the rank with integrating an alexa widget.

For what you need a low alexa rank, it’s good if you selling ad spots, the advertisers will see that you have traffic on your site. If you want to integrate an alexa widget, this is the code:

<a href="https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/jarchevintes.com">
<script type="text/javascript" src="https://xslt.alexa.com/site_stats/js/s/a?url=jarchevintes.com">

Just use your domain name, jarchevintes.com replace with your domain.
