Today I am not writing any technical post. This post is out of subject for this technical blog. But the intension of this blog to reach more and more people to help community so I am writing this. In this post I am going to explain few tips for improving Alexa rank for your technical blog.

What is Alexa Rank? is a private company founded in 1996. They defined themselves as the “Web information company”. But in simple words for us Alexa is a company that measures web traffic in almost every site on the internet through their toolbar plugin. On the internet Alexa rank becomes a standard in the webmasters world. If you have good Alexa ranking then there will more people,advertisers,sponsors and visitors will be attracted your site.

Tips for increasing Alexa rank on your technical blog:

I am not kind of guru on this. I am just sharing what I have learnt from the experience. Followings are few tips that will help you increasing Alexa rank.

  1. First thing I need to clear that alexa rank and google page rank are both different. So If you are having higher page rank that does not mean that you will have higher Alexa rank. Both are measured in different way.
  2. To have perfect Alexa rank first thing you need to is to claim your site at You can claim your site via putting a meta tag suggested by them. That way can access your site better and you could have possibly better and accurate rank over there.

Why we should write blogs and do community work

I am doing blogging since last 5 years and I have seen lots of people asking the same things. Why do you write blog? do you have any side income for this blog? Why you are so active in community ? I am answering this questions almost every day. So I decided to write a blog post about it. Following are the reason why I am writing blogs and doing community work?


I like to help people and that is one of the main reason behind the all blogs and community work. Also helping other is a great way to learn new things. Because other person may be facing a problem which you never encountered during your professional life or project you are doing!!. At the end of you can feel proud that you help somebody.


I have to learn lots of things everyday to write my blogs. Some one said Teaching some one is best way to learn new things. It apply here also when you write blog or answer question on forum.

Earn Award and Get famous:

This is one of the advantages of writing blogs and doing community things. People will know that you are having such knowledge in respected fields. I have got Microsoft Most Valuable Professional award 3 times due to my blogging and community work. But remember one thing your first intension of doing communication work is to help people. All other things will come as other benefits.

Communication skills:

Once you communicate with lots of people and write blog it will definitely increase your communication skills. If you are writing some blogs then its going to increase your writing skills also.
