I Recently Entered Yakezie Challenge!

At first, it was unclear as to what Yakezie was all about.  But as I continued to read about this network site at other financial blogs, I started to realize that Yakezie network was created to help each financial bloggers to succeed in reaching their personal goal.  Since I am new to blogging, this was a great opportunity for me to join the Yakezie challenge and reach my goal of 200,000 in Alexa ranking in the next 6 months.

It’s been little less than 2 weeks since I started the challenge and I already am seeing the benefit of joining.  My Alexa ranking was in the 800,000 range but now the ranking dropped to 500,000 level.  I have learned that to be successful, you have to get involved in the network, leaving comments in other posts and forums.

I feel very confident that I will reach my goal within next 6 months because I know Yakezie network will be there to support me as much as possible.  At the same time, I will be active and contribute even more to the Yakezie network.

Here are the 15 contributors at Yakezie Network and they are all successful financial websites.  I highly recommend you follow them by subscribing to their feed (RSS).

    I have a feeling you will meet your goal must sooner than 6 months. I have only been blogging for a month and a half 🙂

    Aside from Alexa ranking improvement (you’re down to 370k now!) I think the support and advice one garners via the network provides the greatest value.

    • UltimateSmartMoney November 19, 2011 at 8:48 pm

      I would have never thought prior to joining Yakezie. Thanks for your support!

  • Ron Thompson November 20, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    The yakezie network really is a great collection of content. I’m not part of it but they really do tend to produce high quality posts. I wish you luck with Yakezie and hopefully you can get under alexa 200k in less than 6 months.

    It is fun watching your Alexa rank drop isn’t it? I also think the community aspect is especially good. It’s really nice to develop a network and have a connection with others doing similar things to you.
