Well friends, I have joined the Yakezie Challenge! It is all about growing your blog and there’s quite a bit of healthy competition, so I’m super excited. Right now, Alexa stats are a bit depressing:
Global: Break 550,000
US: Break 100,000
Want to Join the Challenge?
1) Install the Alexa toolbar if not already and comment what your current Alexa ranking is, so we can keep track.
2) Write consistently 2-4 times a week on your own site and consider guest posting around the community including on Yakezie.com to raise your profile.
3) Install the Yakezie Challenger Badge.
4) Announce on your blog that you have joined the Yakezie Challenge.
5) Selflessly promote others and build relationships.
6) Stay committed and consistent over the next 6 months! Whether you are a huge blog or a start-up, everybody most go through a 6 month Challenge period to ensure that we build the best relationships possible.

8) Once the 6-month challenge is over, let us know how far you’ve come in the forums, on your blog, and via an e-mail.

Welcome to the challenge. I’d say the one most effective thing I did in improving my score was blog reading and commenting like crazy. I now try to limit myself to no more than an hour a day.

Oh yeah, that can be super tough, limiting yourself to only an hour a day. There is so much to read and see!

Yay! Welcome to the challenge. You’ll be amazed by how quickly your Alexa ranking drops. I think mine was somewhere over two million when I first began…eek! Let me know if there’s anything that I can do to help.
