Most bloggers know what Alexa and PageRank are. But they have two different opinions.
Are Alexa and PageRank important?
This is a good question!!!
Are Alexa and PageRank important? In my view, it depends on few things.
Do you want to direct advertisements?
If you want to sell ad space directly, you should think about Alexa and PageRank because, the one who gives you the advertisements would ask you about your Alexa and PageRank at first.
Do you want more guest posts?
If you are too busy you may have to accept guest posts. But if you don’t have good Alexa and PageRank, it is hard to get guest posts.
If you have a good Alexa and PageRank (Specially PageRank) you would have many guest posts request. So you can accept the quality posts from them. But if you don’t have good Alexa and PageRank, you won’t get this chance.
Do you want to increase blog subscribes?
When you go to buy hosting, why do you select a popular hosting company? Because, you think that if hosting company is popular, their service will be good.
It is same as this too. If you have a good Alexa and PageRank your readers would know that your content is quality and they will never spam you. So they don’t think twice for subscribe your blog. ( But if Alexa and PageRank is good, you can’t always decide that the content is quality or they never spam you. But most of the time you can trust that web.)
Do you want to get more backlinks?
Most bloggers write posts such as top blogging blogs, high PR guest post accept blogs, etc. If you want to add your blog in to that posts, your Alexa and PageRank should be good.
But remember that; in the beginning of blogging don’t think about Alexa and PageRank. Most important thing is creating a quality content and building an audience. After creating a quality content, you will get a good Alexa and PageRank. If it doesn’t happen you can do few special things to get it. So in the beginning don’t think about Alexa and PageRank.
So, what do you think? You can share your opinion as a comment.
