  3. You are also wlcm for commenting on my blogs......... Thanx A lot for accepting. Your articles are awesome and m visiting ur website daily.

  4. Thanks for this, Rahul - there's just one point I'd like to make. Whilst commenting on Blogging/Technology blogs may give a link and good traffic, the readers who follow that link may not be interested in my niche. I'd say it was better to comment on the top blogs in my own niche (in my case, Self-Improvement). That way, the readers I get will be people interested in Self-Improvement, and they will more likely to stay, read, explore and enjoy my site. And if they do that, Alexa will love me anyway!

  5. Alexa is overrated in my opinion, it doesn't operate on real numbers like Google Analytics. I'd say claim your site, and call it a day, they are just trying to make all sorts of money.
