This blog started from a challenge a little over 3 months ago. In order to take this blog to the next level for both myself, current readers, and those readers that will find us in the future, I have joined the Yakezie Alexa Ranking Challenge. Below are the guidelines:
The Yakezie Network List is an exclusive list reserved for Yakezie members. For those who want to be on the list, they must first commit to participating in the Yakezie Alexa Ranking Challenge for a duration of 6 months. The challenge is open to personal finance and lifestyle blogs.
THE YAKEZIE ALEXA RANKING CHALLENGE
2) Write consistently 2-4 times a week for 6 months.
3) Install the Yakezie badge with pride.
4) Announce on your blog that you have joined the challenge.
5) Selflessly promote others.
Your goal is to break 200,000 in Alexa after 6 months. If you are already under 200,000, your goal is to break 100,000. If you are under 100,000, your goal is to break 50,000 and so forth. This straight forward two-step process helps ensure that we allow those who truly want to be a part of The Yakezie into the network.
The goal of the Challenge is to allow you to develop the best relationships possible and demonstrate your commitment and consistency with your site. As a result, all Members must go through a 6 month period before being eligible to join the Yakezie Network. New classes are invited to join in the beginning of the year around January/February and the middle of the year around July/August.
Remember, persistence is the key to success!
Yakezie Network Founder
Yesterday when I officially joined the challenge my Alexa ranking was 26,214,230. I still have a long way to go over the next 6-months, but this challenge is going to help hold me accountable to this community that we are building here. So far I have done everything on the list above…well # 2 and #5 will be a work in process over the next 6-months. I encourage any other Personal Finance or Lifestyle blogs to join this challenge as well.
