Alexa Rank or Google Page Rank

Google     11 November 2009     11 Comments

Which one is most important for any website or blog- Google Page Rank or Alexa Ranking?

Infact, both keep their importance at its own place. While Alexa Rank aims to overall rank of any site in whole web, Google Page Rank on the other hand, determines the importance of any site in the web.

Alexa Rank
With Alexa Rank, you can measure the traffic stats, global reach, search percentage, pageviews etc. of any site. But I would rather say, Alexa Ranking is not accurate. I have seen many sites with traffic of 3-4 k visitors daily and having alexa ranking around 2-3 lakhs.But also I have seen some sites with even 500 visitors daily and keeping their alexa rank under 1 lakh. But then also a good Alexa Rank can show your sites good impression in front of others. There are many ways to increase Alexa Ranking. Keep visiting here; I’ll be soon posting them.

Google Page Rank
Google’s PR states the overall popularity of your site over the internet. It mainly depends on backlinking i.e. how many other websites are linking you. Still there are ways of How To Increase Google Page Rank. You should also check How To Increase Backlinks for a Blog. If your PR is good, you can get some traffic-love from Google as Google trusts your blog to that level.

But, I’ll say none Alexa Rank or Google Page Rank helps in determining the traffic of any website. Some sites with PR as 0 gets around 1000 visitors as on daily average from google while some with PR2 even still counts less than 100 visitors/day.

Again, high PR can prove your dominancy over internet.

    I would prefer both of them.. just for knowledge purpose.. i can rather say that they were just a scale for our success in the web…

  2. Nice info…. thks for the comparison between google and alexa

  3. having a good google page rank sites traffic will increase from google search engine and also in other search engines.

    there is no use of alexa rank. any one can manipulate it

  4. Ricky says:

    I dont believe in both. They are the rough estimation of the blog. Although alexa ranking is unpredictable it is a good way to evaluate the traffic of the blog.

  5. I t is very easy t manipulate Alexa as well as Google page ranks. We must decide the popularity of a website by the exact total visitors it gets, but it is not possible!

    In my opinion, i prefer Google PR, because Alexa Rank is “weird” in their ranking, i see some websites with a little traffic with good ranking and 0 PR in Google and not very good amount of readers. Alexa is not very accurate like you say, some good websites can only have 1M ranking and i read somewhere that someone has 6M in the beginning, then, someone with Alexa toolbar visits his sites and his ranking went to 1M with just one visitor.
    But in term of marketing/website flipping, both are important.

  9. TechChunks says:

    Both are like “Necessary Evils”. Even if you don’t believe those rankings there is hardly anything you can do about them, as long as the advertisers love those rankings!
