Alexa Rank

My site’s Alexa rank has been improving steadily since I set up my set. It was about 8,000,000 the first time I checked it, now it’s hovering around 275,000. (Lower numbers are better in the Alexa ranking system.) Here’s a screenshot showing my site’s global Alexa rank, and my rank in the UK:

My site has also been rising in Google’s search engine rankings. This screenshot from Google Webmaster Tools shows the average position of my site for various different search terms.

My site is at or near being number 2 in the rankings for a few search terms.  I’ve done quite a lot of link building, and I’ve entered my site into a lot of different directories. It seems to be paying off.

The overall Google Page Rank of my site is still zero. Google updates Page Rank every few months, so it can take a while to increase.
