Ke uhaʻi nei i nā pūnaewele 100,000 o Alexa

Eono mahina o ka hana nui ʻana, akā i kēia lā ua nānā au Alexa a ua haki i ka hōʻailona 100,000 (3 mahina awelika).

Inā wau e koho, e ʻōlelo paha wau he 10 a 20 mau hola i kēlā me kēia pule ma kaʻu blog no nā mahina 6 i hala iho nei i kiʻi iaʻu ma laila. Lana koʻu manaʻo e kui aku ia ma mua o ka Makahiki Hou, akā maikaʻi wau me nā lā he 2 keu.

No ke aha wau e kaʻana nei i kēia? E like me nā mea ʻē aʻe, manaʻo wau he mea maikaʻi ke hoʻonohonoho i nā pahuhopu nāu. ʻO Alexa ka mea kokoke loa iaʻu i kahi 'Pūnaewele Pūnaewele' no laila haʻi ia iaʻu pehea ka hana a kaʻu pūnaewele i nā poʻe ʻē aʻe āpau. Hāʻawi ʻo Technorati i ka hana a kaʻu blog i nā poʻe ʻē aʻe. Aia wau ma lalo o 12,000 a lana ka manaʻo e hana i nā blog 5,000 kiʻekiʻe ma ka hopena o ka makahiki.

He aha kaʻu hana ʻokoʻa? Ua hana hou wau i mau hana hou ʻelua, kekahi ʻenekia ʻimi ʻana i kahi ʻenekini, kekahi o nā tweaking o kaʻu mau anakuhi, nui o ka blog e ʻōlelo nei ma nā blog ʻē aʻe, nā trackbacks he nui ... akā ʻo ka hapanui ua hoʻāʻo wau e kū ʻoiaʻiʻo i kaʻu ʻike ʻana i ka pono o kaʻu blog. hana ana. Makemake wau e kaʻana pololei i ka ʻike e pili ana i ka kūʻai aku ʻana a me ka automation.

Hoʻololi ʻokoʻa kaʻu mau kumuhana, hoʻohui i kekahi manawa i kekahi ʻike pilikino (no laila ʻike ʻoe iaʻu iho) i nā kumuhana e pili ana i ka papahana (kahi ʻāpana o ke ola o kēlā me kēia mākeke - pololei a ʻole ʻole paha), hoʻolaha a pehea e loli ai ka ʻike o ka mea kūʻai aku, blogging and pehea ia e kōkua pono ai i ke kūʻai aku ʻana, a ʻoiaʻiʻo kaʻu mau rist periodic.

Me he mea lā e holo pono ana ia, a hauʻoli wau e leʻaleʻa ana ʻoe iā ia. E ʻoluʻolu e haʻi iaʻu inā aia kekahi mau kumuhana ʻē aʻe āu e makemake ai e ʻike iaʻu e uhi ana. A ʻoiaʻiʻo, e hoʻomau wau e kamaʻilio pololei iā ʻoe e pili ana i nā pilikia aʻu e kū nei e pili ana i nā ʻenehana kālepa.

    Absolutely, Sean… Alexa seems to get more accurate the longer you wait. I think it’s because Alexa utilizes a ‘random’ sampling to estimate reach. So – over time, it tends to be more accurate. That’s one of the reasons I pay more attention long-term and 3-month was my goal rather than ‘today’. I’ve peaked quite a bit on the daily as you’ve seen with your site, but over time is what matters.

    “Wow” and “Uh Oh” are definitely what I’m after. I work hard at the blog so the last thing I want to see is that I’m putting off folks rather than acquiring and keeping subscribers. It’s simply a measure of my performance.

    It’s also a great indicator since I consult a number of other clients on their blogs. If I can’t grow my own reach, I’m not sure they should be listening to me! It’s a lot like hiring an SEO expert that isn’t in the top 10… don’t bother!

    Doug,
    Congratulations! Being the token nerd in my office I’ve done a good deal of SEO work myself trying to get our blog noticed and read. We’ve been moving up in Alexa as well but haven’t yet broken the 100K 3-month mark. So I know EXACTLY how hard it can be.

    Thanks for a good blog, keep at it.

    I think Alexa results do get more accurate the bigger the site/traffic. On a smaller scale people can encourage false results by getting a bunch of people to install the tool bar and visit each others sites (I have seen a couple of these sites popping up recently)

    Personally, I measure site success by how useful it is and by feedback. A way of quantifying that for me is by looking at my server?s web stats and watching a steady trend of increased traffic.

    If you want Alexa to give you a more accurate record of your traffic you can install a widget that will let Alexa know every time your website is visited – not just when someone with the toolbar visits.

    It's now June 30, 2009 and I have just stumbled upon your Jan 3rd post… Let offer a late congrats on your achievement. Under 100,000 in 6 months is quite an accomplishment.

    We rolled out our lates website in Nov 2008 and we have finally got our ranking under 1 million. We are projecting that we will be under 100,000 by years end.

    Well, keep up the good work…

    Hi Doug, right now my Alexa is somewhere between 105k-110k, what can I do to get over the hump and below 100k. Great site and even better information. Keep up the good work, thank you!
