Alexa rank going down by the millions!
After the initial frustration, it was really revealing and a blessing in disguise! No, I am not writing anything to increase of manage the ranking of my site. If that was the goal, I would certainly not write obscure philosophical articles sometimes not even me understand easily, but I would try to write about all those trending hot topics that most people care about. My defiance for Harmonia Philosophica’s popularity is evident from the selection of themes to the way of writing (which essentially breaks all SEO rules). However I did expect a kind of consistency from one of the world’s most famous site ranking sites. But consistency is a rare commodity in our time.
The steep decline in the Alexa rank of this site just re-affirmed my destination. And this destination is – and was from the beginning – towards the few. Those are the ones shaping the future. When was the last time the majority of people solved any great philosophical problem anyway?
At the end, not caring about your site rank is a recipe for failure.
Because at the end the successful will turn to them for advice.
Don’t be too amazed by gold.
It is the dirt which will feed you…
