Alexa is a web analytics company owned by Amazon. Alexa is a refreshingly unique web analytics tool, very easy to navigate, extremely insightful and perhaps is the only tool having the feature of competitive intelligence. Let’s learn how to increase Alexa Ranking by taking an example – let’s say of the popular newspaper ‘ The Hindu’.

The Hindu has a web edition of its newspaper – ‘’.

Let us assume that the top management at ‘The Hindu‘ wants to analyze the effectiveness (reach, popularity, engagement etc.) of its online newspaper by using Alexa and also compare it with the same parameters of its competitors say NDTV. The management is using only the basic free plan.

By entering the website url- in the space provided, the management gets the comparison of ‘The Hindu’ v/s ‘ NDTV’. This feature is available in the upgrade version .

How does Alexa work?

Alexa ‘estimates’ the various web analytics parameters as discussed above for all websites. If the user wants accurate ‘site metrics’, he has to install the Alexa generated ‘tracking code’ on each page of his website. This piece of code then tracks the actual web data and hence is completely accurate. Then the user gets the Alexa certified ‘webmetrics’.

Alexa provides services like competitive intelligence, SEO audits, Keyword searches, keyword queries, accurate online intelligence that give actionable suggestions to improve the website performance. Thus the user can improve the popularity( traffic, engagement and loyalty) of his website on the internet.

These Alexa ranks are considered to be quite reliable and many advertisers depend upon the Alexa ranking of websites to display their advertisements.
