Hi i have been closely watching hubpages.com rank and it has increased from 316 to 300 now according to alexa. That's a really good news for hubpages.com and hubbers like me as i am getting a great platform to write on.
This was quite expected as more hubs are being added everyday, the hubchallenge going on, more users signing up and last but not the least, more hubs ranking high in SERPs.
Congratulations to both Paul Edmondson, Paul Deeds and the HubPages team.
Woo! I'm trying to do my part!
Does a higher Alexa ranking mean that our pages hold more authority also? May sound stupid but Alexa and Google are different and idk if Google will recognize this increase, will it?
Yes your pages will have more authority and google.com has alexa ranking of 1.
I think google respects websites which ranked high in alexa.
This increase is in fact mostly due to Google.
As Alexa measures the amount of traffic on a site and I am sure HubPages would not have achieved this landmark without Google sending tons of traffic here every single day.
So this might be an idea of how Google is recognizing the authority of our pages.
Alex scores are only based on data that is gathered from Internet users who have the Alex toolbar installed on their browsers (which is primarily users of IE) so it's not exactly a clear or comprehensive representation of users across the entire web. Alexa is owned by Amazon.com.
