Yakezie Challenge

Proud 
Member of the Yakezie Challenge

I have committed to join the Yakezie Challenge.  It's not too late for you to join either!  " The Challenge is a 6 month long process where you strive to breach three respective Alexa ranking hurdles of 200,000, 100,000 or 50,000, depending on where your rank is to start.  What’s important to realize is that the Alexa system isn’t perfect and isn’t the holy grail of website analysis.  It’s just one of many ranking systems out there which help measure our progress.  There is a strong correlation with your ranking improvement and the amount of activity on your blog, and it’s one of the best systems we’ve got.  It’s also the default ranking system for many blog lists around the world."

When I downloaded the Alexa toolbar and checked my ranking, it was 6,197,171.  Definitely room for improvement!!  So here it begins... A commitment to improve my blogging skills and improve my ranking. Join in if you haven't already!

Hmmmm, I'm always confused about blog "ranking". I don't blog for money, just to meet new friends and put my thoughts on paper. Perhaps I should try to make money on it as well? Who knows. You'll have to let me know if your ranking gets better! :)

Hi Sharon,

I am competitive by nature, so seeking to improve my ranking is more of a personal challenge than a monetary one. That is not to say that I would not mind earning additional money from my blog, I wound not mind that at all :)

By the way, when I visit your blog, your Alexa ranking is a little of over two million... You are doing great!

You're improving already. Your rank is up to 6,191,978 in a short while. Moving in the right direction slow and steady is good.

Thanks Sandy! It is certainly going in the right direction

Welcome!

Here's to the challenge and Alexa domination :D; I don't blog for money either, but like you I'm competitive, and I spend so much time blogging anyway I figured this was a great way to get even more involved in the community.

Welcome to the Yakezie Challenge!

As I write this you're at 3,339,316! So you've almost cut that number in half in one week! That's amazing progress.

In a way I want to do this but another side of me says: MEH

My ranking sucks because I don't put in those special efforts to make sure I don't link to "bad" sites that don't have a high ranking or whatever

I also don't solicit enough, but.. I just feel like if they want to read me, they will. NO need to force them

Hard to say. I'm torn :)
