This year marks the fourth year of my association with this amazing campaign called “My Friend Alexa” started and run by a thriving, buzzing community of Blogchatter. My Friend Alexa is a very unique blogging campaign where creating your own blog takes a back seat in a way and you appreciate and enjoy what your fellow creators have put out. It truly celebrates creativity. When one receives the love of your readers, viewers in the form of comments and shares, it boosts the confidence of the creator 10 fold.
Who’s this Alexa?
Blog or any page on this massive world wide web is ranked on various aspects like traffic, content authority, etc. There are many indicators to look out for. But, Alexa Traffic Rank is one notorious indicator to get hold of and be consistently good with it. I won’t bore you with how techie details about how rank works and all. (To be honest with you, I also don’t know exactly how it works. 😉) It ranks your blog/website based on the traffic and engagement you get on it. Any guesses who must be acing it? Yes, OBVIOUSLY it’s Google. (See, how tough the competition is?) Google is proud owner of Alexa #1.
My journey in campaign
From my experience of past four campaigns, the only thing I can tell you confidently is, “Consistency is the only key to be on top of the game”. If you want to keep your rank following the downward trend, you have to keep investing yourself. You should consistently create and keep engaging with your community.
In 2018, I wrote 8 Marathi poems and recited it for my readers while in 2019, I logged in the thoughts triggered by a particular incident / line in the book I was reading and for last year, my idea was to bring gems from Marathi literature for everyone to enjoy.
I could only complete the campaign of 2018. For the next 2 campaigns, the only thing I was consistent about was being inconsistent with it. This year I am totally committed to completing this one and continuing the momentum in future too. So, see you around. Hope you will enjoy my works.
I’m taking my blog to the next level with Blogchatter’s My Friend Alexa.

MFA is like an old friend that helps regularise my blogging. Liked your perspective about it
Thanks! Looking forward to your posts too.😊
Nice…this is my third or fourth time taking part in the Alexa campaign too…all the best!
This isy second year and I’m determined to complete it. All the best and I’m sure you’ll crack it too.
I have been participating in the campaign since the launch and have completely finished it. Wishing you all the best this year.
i joined MFA in 2019 and believe me i just wait for it meticulously coz the drop in ranking is addicting.

I’ll stop by to read your posts. The #MyFriendAlexa campaign tests our patience levels sometimes. But it is super fun too. #MyepicaReads
This year, Alexa has been very strange for me. My rank actually went up once MyFriendAlexa started. There is no movement at all in the International rank as well. What am I doing wrong? All the best to you and may your ranking keep dropping.
Hope it plummets back as people visit your blog and shower their love via comments and shares
Wow Aditya, welcome to the fourth year of the campaign. I agree that consistency is the key.
I only took part in it last year for the first time. It was a good boost for my blog. So trying it this time too.
So you crossed the hat-trick mark! Congratulations on the 4th year of participation.
I joined MFS last year and really love the boots that I get in writing my blogs.
This is my second year with the campaign. It is surely a great platform for bloggers. I hope this year you can finish it.
I am hoping for the same. It’s feeling tough though…
wow! excited to read more from you and this would be my first try with alexa campaign.
This is the second year I am participating and so relate with you on the Alexa campaign… All the very best to all of us participating…
This is my third year and has been an amazing journey. However, I felt this year the participation is quite low. Also, many are not active on blog or have not renewed their blogs.
Absolutely, I agree what you said very Aptly. Without your own investment, sincerely, nothing else can bring down the Alexa figures.
