Last January 31, 2014 marked Money Saving Dude’s first month, and it sure was a great month for us. The traffic wasn’t that great if you’re going to compare it with established sites, but that’s alright. I had a website before and that site’s first month is nothing compare to what Money Saving Dude had experienced in its first 30 days of existence.

What Do Yakezie Challengers Do?
As a challenger, I‘ve been given a six month period to improve my site’s Alexa ranking and reach the 200,000 or less mark. I’m currently at 600,000+, and I’ve got four more months to improve it. Wait. That’s not right. I just joined the network now, right?
Apparently, I registered at Yakezie last November 2013, and I didn’t have any idea about this challenge that time. I just started putting up some articles on this site on the last day of the year 2013. If I’m going to consider that as my starting point, then I have barely four months left to complete the challenge.
Anyways, it doesn’t matter. I will just try my best to reach the 200,000 mark and maybe with a little bit of luck I could surpass it before May comes.
To all my fellow personal finance bloggers and Yakezie challengers, I hope you could help me in finishing this challenge. Thank you!
Other websites established or not can still join the Yakezie Challenge, if you already have an Alexa rank of less than 200,000, then you could still participate. Your challenge would now be to reach the 100,000 mark. If you are already part of the top 100,000 sites in the world, you will then need to surpass the 50,000 mark.
Challenging, isn’t it?
