How Many Website Visitors are Needed to Break the Alexa 100,000

Breaking the Alexa 100,000 takes quite a bit of time and effort. The only way you will see your Alexa chart is if you are in the top 100,000 websites in the world. Note that you could see the chart for traffic spikes but if you want to consistently see your Alexa chart you will need to get some significant traffic. Here is what I found out.

You will notice that back in late March and early April I first broke into the top 100,000 which is where the little blue line shows up. At that time I was getting about 3,000 visitors a day to my website. I had a few days in which I spiked to around 10,000 or 15,000, but, on average, I was hitting the 3k mark.

Over the last three months I have steadily grown my traffic to the point of 4,000 visitors a day. Even on slow weekend days I still get over 3,500 visitors to my website. Note that most of these visitors are coming from search with a very small percentage coming from social media websites.

If you want to break into the top 100,000 on Alexa I would suggest placing the threshold at around 3,000 visitors a day. If you can generate this type of traffic you would be considered one of the elite Internet marketers in the world.

Personally, I could care less about my Alexa ranking. I really don’t think it matters at all because it is a swayed ranking. Technical and social media websites rank much better because the data is tracked through a plugin. People visiting websites like small town message boards and outdoor leisureĀ sites would never install a plugin. I have a client that gets about 20,000 visitors a day and his website doesn’t show up in the Alexa top 100,000. This is just something to think about.

When it comes to traffic, remember that quality is better than quantity. I would rather have one personal injury lawyer come to my website to get SEO and search ranking advice than 500 teenagers looking for ways to get more Snapchat views.

    Only traffic comes from the visitors who have installed Alexa toolbar on their Browsers counts by Alexa. So, I think it’s little impossible to give an approximate or idea for daily traffic limits.

    Before a year I had 25-40 Visitors per day my rank was 2m – 1.2m
    – Now I have about 80 – 100 visitors my rank is 4m – 3m, So don’t worry about ranking worry about content quality and Seo.
