Budgeting in the Fun Stuff has Joined the Yakezie Alexa Ranking Challenge

As the title said, BFS has joined the Yakezie Alexa Ranking Challenge!  My current ranking is 8,531,858* and the goal is to be in the top 200,000...needless to say, we have a ways to go.  Go Yakezie group marketing!

For anybody who's lost, top Alexa rankings can really help out a blog.  Yakezie members help promote each other in order to get as many visitors as possible!  Whoo-hoo cooperation!


I'm borrowing the current group list from Sweating the Big Stuff until I get added to the membership emails, so thanks Daniel!

  1. Hey Crystal!

    Thanks for the heads-up on Alexa Rankings. I have seen it mentioned from time to time, but have not looked into it at all. I am shamefully in the 4,278,856:). Gulp!

  2. Amanda, glad I could help!

    I just figured out that my Alexa Ranking is based on (not my specific page)...oh well, I'll stay in the challenge to help others and for the extra traffic.

    If BFS continues to get more readers, I'll get my own domain in 6 months or so. I just didn't want to spend the money if it failed miserably...

  3. Welcome to the challenge! I'm sure you will have a lot of fun, and get to know a lot of new members. We have a very active voice in the google groups where we are thinking about a lot of new ideas and stuff.

    Hope to see you around more often! Congrats on getting your own domain!



  4. Financial Samurai, thanks! I've been keeping up with the group's daily posts...very cool!
