What is an Alexa Rank?

While most scores are based on the concept that “higher is better,” the Alexa Ranking works in the opposite way. The lower your score, the more likely your pages are to be seen in searches. An ideal Alexa Ranking is anywhere below 100,000. Fully accredited, active websites with thousands of pages and sometimes millions of links will usually be in the 5,000-30,000 range.

What does the “Inbound Links” number mean?

These are the number of links search engines have found that link from a third party website to your website. Increasing the number of inbound links your site has is one of the major steps in good search engine optimization practices.

What do the keywords on my report mean?

Whether a keyword is determined “Good” or not comes down to one important factor – how your website ranks for that keyword. Your Rankings Roadmap specialist will discuss with you what you need to do to increase your website traffic based on these keywords (and more) that online users may use to search for your website.

The websites listed as my competition are nothing like my company. How do I change that?

If your online competition has absolutely nothing to do with your company, then you may be in big trouble! That means that the content on your website and the keywords associated with your web content are better suited for a different kind of company. This will result in you competing with businesses that aren’t even similar to yours! We can help you fix that. Get a free consultation when you request your Rankings Roadmap after you determine your website score.

How does my competition have such a high score?

Most often, online competition takes the cake by having consistent, new information they share with thousands of avid followers. While the first steps of optimizing your website may seem simple – like determining a keyword focus, analyzing your web copy, and getting listed on respectable online directories such as Google Local listings – you’ll need to look at the full picture to truly compete with other companies on the web.
