Why My Alexa Rank stopped updating ?
We got to seen that from a long time despite of having high traffic our blog alexa rank is not updating. There are many bloggers who are checking daily their alexa rank because it plays an very important role in attracting advertisers and advertisers means Money.
Why Alexa Rank is not updating frequently ?
It is due to slight change which is rolling out over Alexa. They are working hard to increase Global traffic panel which will provide more accurate site traffic data estimate even if you are not a premium user i.e Non-Certified member.
Most probably this update will roll over in Next month, where you will get more deeper insight and better estimation of alexa traffic rank. Benefits of this update are :-
- Accurate Traffic metrics
- Sure-shot Overall Traffic stats
- Accurate Ranking
- Insights of your Competitor’s site
And those who have Alexa rank under 100k will notice that there rank will fluctuate more frequently as compared to before.
NB: We all know Alexa traffic estimate is based on traffic who are using alexa toolbar in their browser so alexa rank is not always accurate. So there are many others way you can judge quality of other blogs are by using Google Page Rank, Domain Authority and Page Authority using Moz Toolbar.
So it has been very difficult to determine whether will be measuring a site quality via using old algorithm which had been used by them from last 20 year even before Google was founded. It might be possible that they may use new better algorithm to determine and Blog/website potential.
Now I guess you got answer for your Question “Why Alexa is not updating frequently ?”. If you have any query related to it you can ask in comment below.

Thanks for telling me about this. Ya know a few months ago, my Alexa was in 450K then after installing the Alexa Claim and Certify plugin, after I have verified my site with them suddenly it went down to 200K and now it’s on 100K. I dunno if this is true with others, coz one of my girfiend told me she never did anything to her Alexa and hers is under 100K, so *shrug*. Anyway, thanks for this great info!

Yes Alexa improves with claiming our blog on their site and verifying it. But Alexa rank totally depend on traffic as compared to other traffic as well as if you daily get new traffic than your Alexa rank is going to drop quickly. My Alexa rank will go under 100k in October month. Hope I get it

Yeah…… Alexa stopped updating alexa ranks regularly…. I think that Alexa rank is updated with an interval of 4-6 days because i have experienced it. I also saw a orange coloured line on the top of the alexa in which its informed that they are going to give more accurate data about any site….

I am having the same doubt as for fast few months, I have seen how my alexa started climbing and all of a sudden for past couple of weeks, the update process have slowed down drastically !!!
So I guess we may now have a different ranking system, which may decrease the ranks for many ??
Its not only your problem there are other blogs also who are facing the same issue, even my blog alexa rank was also updating daily but suddenly it stop but you will see some frequent uneven update like this for this month until it get updated

You have indeed answered the question and I guess I need to direct this post to one of my friends on Facebook with respect to how come his alexa hasn’t improve for some days now. I care less of alexa though and I do think it is the number reason why many bloggers end their blogging career. Alexa and Adsense are indeed the number one killers.

We all know that Alexa ranking is not the real ranking. It doesn’t show real traffic.
There are many people who don’t install Alexa toolbar so their visit will not have considered by Alexa.
There is nothing to worry about it. Just need to focus at your readers.
~Have a nice day.:)

This is what i was searching for 😛 At last, i found 😀
Really a good and informative article 🙂
My site was subjected to a completely unjustifiable, six-month, no-notice Google penalty this year (no notice so I couldn’t appeal). The Alexa rank dropped from ~150,000 to a little over 500,000. A little after six weeks following expiration of the penalty I had climbed back above the 300,000 mark and was rapidly recovering (it’s a legitimate site with legitimate users and traffic), but Alexa has not updated my site ranking for several days. Any thoughts?

I read post and some comment and I found my answer that if we install Alexa widget then we can imporve Alexa rank but I want to share my own experiene with you, how alexa update and when alexa not update?
When I work frequently I improved my Alea rank. In my new year site, When I worked on daily basis, I improved my Alexa rank. but when we do not work for a week or month, Alexa rank stop and not update but when again we work on our site after some weeks or month, Alexa go to up side and gradually improve as we work frequently.
Sorry for poor English, Actually I am not good in English.
Any way thanks for sharing.

The reason given here makes sense but the article is too old. Does it still stand a valid reason if we notice Alexa rank getting stuck at one number for more than a day or two? Any recent experience? Share here.

I have also noticed when there’s a huge drop or increase for the alexa rank of a website, its calculations would updated with delay. In one case our site ranked poorly and stopped updating the results for some days and suddenly it improved rank some millions.
Thanks for information, it was useful.
Does having good ranking have effect on bringing the pages of your site in the first page of google?
Even the pages that had few visit?
