September rank released. How's your position?
Friends September rank has released. What about your position?
Congrats to you yogesh
i would like to share my rank too
mine is 65 (now) against 51(earlier)
moz rank is 3.9
Congrats Arti! Baby steps give gradual sustainable success while huge leaps ultimately make one reach the place where one has started.
@Poojaji: Thanks :) But you can call me Arti, I am not that big
@Pramodji: Thank you so much for your support and encouragement always
@Ranjith: Thanks! But that huge leap thingy went over my head
@DS: Thanks a lot, you are always very encouraging :) I wish the same for your blog as well
@ Pramoji: Thanks Pramodji:)
@ Ranjith: Thanks a lot:)
@ Arti: Thanks again Arti:) I didn't add the 'ji' here. Blame it on Pramodji. His way of addressing others has rubbed on me too (No offence Pramodji).
@DS: Thanks a lot:)
@ Zephyr: Thanks Zephyr:)
I slipped from 69 to 64. For some very odd reasons Alexa bumped +150k points :P. In all seriousness Alexa doesn't really hold any real time value.
@ The Sorcerer: Hmm..there's always a next time.Well, that is what I tell myself all the time when IndiRank gets published I don't understand Alexa nor Moz Rank nor Google Page Rank nor External juice passing links . The words seem like I live in a different world. So I guess I am happy with my current ranking. Ignorance is bliss kinda situation for me. But, yeah I would want someone to tutor me on these. I have read on them but the explanation doesn't cater to all my questions. So I remain confused :)
I am giving no attention to these ranks. Honestly this is more for websites than for blogs. MOZ feels more for bloggers or sites that get regular contributions.
Besides, these ranks are no different than synthetic benchmarks for tech reviews. You look at them as a reference/glance over it but give weightage to real time benchmarks. For bloggers, real time benchmarks is probably how much time people spend in your site in average and mostly returning viewers. Rest of it is pretty to watch and that's about it.
@ Sorcorer That's really not a problem. And yes, average time spent and returning visitors is what matters the most.
Keep Smiling :-)
@Sorcerer I was waiting for the cakes!!! But no worries, we shall have it next time :)
@Pooja People who know more complain more. So as you said, in a way it's good you dont know much about them, that is why you are happy :)
I agree with what The Sorcerer said. I have a difficult time understanding the obsession with IndiRank in this community. But to each his own.
What I really want to know is whether a google-searcher reach gets my blog in the first page of the results when he is searching for something that's in my blog. What I would want even more is that my blog creates good impression on them and they return to it later. I don't see any of the metrics used in IndiRank helping me understand whether I am doing welll in these departments.
For example, the blog of mine that receives the least number of visitors, the one that I neglected, the one that I use only to take ad-hoc raw notes has got the highest mozRank (3.91). Also, no matter how much the IndiRank for this blog dips or rises, I see pretty much the same number of visitors per day. It's like Google does the right job of bringing up this neglected blog on the first page of the results if someone is searching for something which is present in this blog. Another blog of mine which has no page rank is doing better than my expectations. I see repeat visitors, more time spent by them on this website. The IndiRank metrics simply doesn't tell me these things I want to know. As such, the IndiRank is pretty much useless to me.
In fact, Google Analytics is what helps me more to understand how my blog is doing and what I can do to hold the attention of my readers. I'm not saying that IndiRank is entirely useless. It does tell me some good-to-know statistics in one single dashboard. But I fail to appreciate this IndiRank party we have on this forum every time IndiRank is updated. But as I said before, to each his own.
Yeah in a way what you are saying is true. The real thing that matters is how long a reader would want to spend on one's blog and actually read the posts . That is absolutely the most satisfying thing a blogger can ask for.
@The Sorcerer: Yeah in a way what you are saying is true. The real thing that matters is how long a reader would want to spend on one's blog and actually read the posts . That is absolutely the most satisfying thing a blogger can ask for.
@ DS: I completely agree with you. IndiRank is just for fun I don't think it can actually judge any blogger . I think it is more like ' You cannot judge a book by its cover'.
@ Ranjith: You want to tutor me on the ranking system and SEOs? Let me warn you, I can be a difficult student :)
@ Arti: Yeah am happy because it reminds me of the time in school when I used to wait for the ranks to be announced. I love that feeling. I am kind of a nerd you know..have always loved exams and ranks even though they were never a barrier when it came to learning.
@ Susam: Yeah IndiBloggers are obsessed with their ranks because that is when you see the maximum activity on the forum:)
Guys, it is all my personal opinion. No offence. Keep blogging. After all, we all are here because of one thing and that is love for blogging :)
Well put, you are very right Pooja :) We all love Blogging and the joy that we get from it can never be judged by any rank or number. I love Indiranks primarily bcoz it brings the entire community together
@all Even my response was a very generalized one and not meant to offend anyone here :)
@ Pooja You will leave me much before I leave you. No one can bear me. :-) It's true...
WOW! Pramodji, aapne to sab ko peeche chod diya! Really happy for your marriage book, i really want to see it in print one day! Best wishes
I just shifted from 67 to 68, thanks to my lower frequency of posting:(
God knows when will be I able to grab my older rank
@Ranjith; thanks buddy:)
@Arti; hopefully this month itself
i have moved from 51 -------->>> 63 :).. But i dont have a clue on y i dont have a google page rank yet??
What is your GPR NA or 0.. If it is NA, then it means that Google hasn't arnked your pages yet. If it is 0, it means that you need to get more incoming links.
Many people dont have it... Getting a GPR depends on Google's mood :P Dont worry Bharathi, Keep blogging :)
Never ming! Blooging too is a mini life where we keep losing things.
I'm at 73. Last time, it has dipped to 61 because of less frequency of posting. I wonder how Alexa works. My blog is being visited more and more by people but my Alexa Rank is increasing. And backlinks, I wonder how they have decreased.
Quite a see-saw in your stats, still such a superb rank! Congrats Ranjith!!
PS: I was looking for your trademark smile .. Keep smiling
@ Arti Nowadays I am too busy to insert that trademark smile So most of teh time I am adjusting with a :-)
Did I say busy? ...... Actually I feel that I am busy even though I am not.
@ DS It is definitely a roller coaster ride. Blogging has become more or less similar to life.
When you go to your dashboard, on the right sidebar, you'll see a tab called IndiRank Stats. You can view it there.
Ya, as Divya rightly said, that will give you the complete stats.. Alternatively, you can also see your rank by clicking on your gravtar..
BTW, Your rank is 71.. Congrats :)

How do we do it?
Mine jumped from 62 to 66. Not such a great jump, but apparently my mozRank is decent- 3.92. It was 1.57 last month.
But I still don't have a Google pagerank. Why is that? What do I have to do? I've been trying to figure it out, but the technology-dunce that I am, I'm not able to fix it. Can someone please explain it to me in simple layman terms? :(
Hey Divya, 62 to 66 is quite a jump, Congrats :)
About GPR, Just keep blogging, fill up your blog with some unique content and (genuine) comment on good sites! I am no techie but this is what I did to get my GPR of 2 :)
Congarts Divya and Zephyr
And what Arti said is the best foolproof way to increase GPR in a genuine way. And that is how, I have done it too....
@ Ranjith: Thank you!!! , my GPR is 0 , i guess i need to work on incoming links :)
@ arti: Thanks for reply, i will wait for google to be in good mood :)
Place genuien comments on other blogs and it serves a double purpose: incre4asing abcklinks and developing good relations with other bloggers too....
I am new to indiblogger.can someone tell me how to find out these ranks?
First u go to ur dashboard (click the button on top right hand side just below the Dove Ad). Then on your dashboard on the right hand side you click the third button which says Indi Rank Stats. If you have been ranked it will show there.
To get the badge you click on the Add ons button on the top right hand side just below the sign out button.
Then below on the right side you will see your rank displayed. Above the rank there is a small arrow next to the Widgets button. Click that and get the desired code and place it on your blog... yipeeee you are done :) :) :)
Congrats to all of you who jumped...and all of you who bumped if u believe in it...better luck next time.....SuKupedia just got her first ever Indi Rank... and it is 65 :) :) :) I am soo happy when I see that badge on my page now yayayayayya
Congrats! Everyone you see teh badge, you will remmeber what you have achieved and what you need to achieve. happy Blogging! :-)
My first ever Indirank for the current blog. 58. Not bad for starters I guess :)
I love your blog Purnendu, its a treat for people like me who love travelling. I am sure the rank will get better with time, best wishes
It's a good rank! Keep blogging and it will rise automatically.
@Ranjith Not one, but many! That is one of the reasons I so love these IndiRanks
Maybe you should start writing about hockey instead of cricket in keeping with the ascending fortunes of the former :)
Not your fault It is the way our World champions have performed lately
Hey DS, I am sure, its just a matter of days till you reach the mountain peak Enjoy your trek :)
Seeing the comments.......lol.......@Zephyr too good.......!
@DS.......hmm......kya kar sakten hain......nowadays I don't think about ranking and all these things......how much will we stress ourselves?
Best policy is if it's rises, celebrate if it's down.....take it as oh I write for fun only.....
Never mind. Keep blogging and it will take care of itself. Take inspiration from the players of your favourite game and continue blogging. All the best!
I think that, you need to start by analysing which part of your rank has started falling and try to improve in that area.
