To gain more audience and build lasting relationships with fellow personal finance bloggers, we are joining the Yakezie Network challenge.
The Yakezie Network is a community of at least 100 personal finance bloggers with the goal of selflessly promoting others. It was founded by Sam of Financial Samurai in an effort to improve his Alexa rank to under 200,000 and at the same time improve exposure to the online community. I believe the value of the Yakezie Network comes from building relationships with fellow bloggers. I think blogging can really be lonely and some times frustrating if there are no one visiting or commenting on the blog.
Where We Are Now
Our Alexa Ranking is currently sitting at 2,273,880. The goal is to achieve an Alexa Rank under 200,000 in six months. We will be joining the Zeta class, which has a deadline of September 15, 2012 to join.
