After 27 days of install Alexa Widget, I see that Wahlau Alexa ranking actually lowered by 100k which is good. I believe there is some paid program rate your blog actually by using a combination of your Technorati ranking, Alexa Ranking, Google Pagerank and maybe some more of others.
Alexa Ranking actually works by tracking people who installed Alexa Toolbar, which means that if most of your readers have Alexa Toolbar installed, you should get good ranking. By installing this widget, they will actually track everyone who visit your homepage, which is definitely more accurate. It is actually pretty easy, just copy the code, and past them onto your footer.

I have actually signed up for John Chow NoFollow, and I think this is the cheapest way I could advertise as USD10 is not a small amount in Malaysia Ringgit, MYR 34. I could actually have 3-5 meals eatting in Mamak or Coffeeshop.
Anyhow, due to that, I have to basically work my way as I do drop by John Chow blog but does not place a comment usually. Now, I am trying to put my comment in every single post which I can place them, as comment are close for some of the previous post which may already have Pagerank. I think I have to do this for at least 2 times pagerank upgrade, which may be 8 months.
You may also notice that I did anchor tax on “Wahlau.NET”, as I have no idea what should I place priority on this blog yet. But it is definately be in the Internet & Technology range.

Wordpress does not have meta tags included in their scripts, but meta tags is one of the oldest ways which was used by search engine to rank your website. It is still used today.
There is some reason that Meta Tags is not included in Wordpress script. Anyhow it is good to add them if you would like to attract more readers from Search Engine or even getting a better ranking for certain keyword. Here are some meta tags which you could include:-
<meta name=”resource-type” content=”document” />
<meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”<?php bloginfo(‘html_type’); ?>; charset=<?php bloginfo(‘charset’); ?>” />
<meta http-equiv=”content-language” content=”en-us” />
<meta http-equiv=”author” content=”Name Here” />
<meta http-equiv=”contact” content=Name@Domain.com />
<meta name=”copyright” content=”Copyright (c)1997-2007 All Rights Reserved.” />
<meta name=”description” content=”add description about your blog” />
<meta name=”keywords” content=”Gadget Blog, bla bla, your search engine keyword here” />
<meta name=”channel” CONTENT=”Technology Blog”>
<meta name=”Robots” CONTENT=”All”>
Check if you have meta tags installed?
I like to use Widexl Meta Check as they are quite specific and indicate how many charactor and words we could use for each meta tags. The error will be shown in red.
How to add meta tags to Wordpress?
To add meta tags go to wp-admin (Admin Login) > Presentation > Theme Editor > look for header.php.
Add this tags near:-
<meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”text/html; charset=utf-8″ />
Also, you could add <?php the_title(); ?> for description and keywords so that each post will have slightly different meta tags. This is the title of your post, which is most probably what you would like to be searched on.

I am just trying this out as Alexa uses a weird method to calculate a homepage ranking by traffic and page views, but only a small portion of internet user uses Alexa toolbar (I think). Therefore, people are arguing that it is inaccurate, nevertheless, it is one of the method to compare the ranking of a website from another, something like Google Pagerank and Technorati Ranking by backlinks
I am too lazy to install Alexa Toolbar just to add up to my homepage ranking, so I am trying out the widget. Get your Alexa Ranking Widget, and for wordpress and blogspot user, you just have to copy the code and past them in the place you would like it to appear.
