    I think it's pretty clear from the title.

    Do you manually submit every website you have to Alexa, or don't you?

    I know that Alexa will pick up on any site on it's own eventually anyway, but i'm wondering if it's worth it for any reason to create an account and submit a few blogs i have or not?

    I do on some sites I have but mostly I make sure that Alexa picks all of them up. Not because I think that there is any magic to having a decent Alexa ranking but because I go so tired of some people saying, "well, if your site is so good why is its Alexa ranking so bad?" So, to remove that from the discussion I just include Alexa as part of what I do on new sites.

    I won't bother submitting my sites to alexa. Its just a useless and inaccurate metrics to guesstimate a site's traffic (unless your site is in the top 100).

    I'd rather spend that time actually improving things on my site/seo/social media.

    They will pickup your site eventually if you have backlinks they run same way as other crawler/bot, why do you bother getting Alexa - their information never accurate and mislead most of the time.

    One more vote for not bothering about it.

    You can do that, but when you get traffic it will automatically recognize it, so I use EZMLM traffic generator which helps for both reasons.
