    I read the page linked in one of the other posts, and I'd like to clarify something - does the activex thing that shows your alexa ranking to visitors also report back to alexa? Meaning that all visitors will count towards your ranking, not just those with the toolbar installed?

    Or am I misunderstanding that part of the article?

    Thanks.

    My site is well ranked in Alexa and has lots of positive comments. I believe that this helps my Google ranking as I am told that Google gets a lot of its info from Alexa.

    I think Alexa is very important to antone wanting to get a good Google rank.

    Anyone have any ideas how Alexa gathers its info. Is it through the Alexa Tool Bar per chance?

    Thanks

    Yup its called the magical toolbar :D , without users having it on their browsers and visiting your site means alexa does not know that user exists at all. And what makes you say google relies on alexa for site ranking ?

    I would not be that harsh. yes indeed Alexa is not to important, but when selling a link on the page or some advertisment a good alexa rank can help you to get a few bucks more! ;)

    recommending people to put Alexa tool bar on their pc, is not good. you are asking them to have their every move recorded, all their surfing habbits.
    you're asking them to install spyware

    I agree...don't waste time with Alexa. There are many better ways to use your time that will help drive traffic to your site.

    I like Alexa ranks. But it need very good marketing and high quality content to get to the top 1000.

    To improve Alexia ranking:

    1. install the toolbar and use it to view every page in your website once a day. Repeat and do again with a different computuer with a different IP, if you want.

    2. Encourage your visitors to install the toolbar

    3. submitting to directories helps some, if the directory is human edited and they have the toolbar installed and they visit your page with it.

    tell your friends to download and install the alexa toolbar and tell them to visit your site everyday. you can have a better results if you can ask 10 or more of your friends to do it.

    Thats a nice hot topic samantha in itself, cause some say its not spyware at all. So you cannot tell someone not to tell others to install alexa toolbar cause the user mentioning the same did not invent alexa toolbar and cannot be held responsible for any losses if any on using alexa toolbar. Did you know that isp does know what we are doing on the web ?

    Work on your google PR instead. As worthless as it is, it's more notable than worthless alexa ranks.

    Don't rely on any prediction tool for me all those are just fake predictions;
    Recently i had checked one of my site and it showed me PR 3 but actually my site is having PR 6 ;)
    Well i will suggest you not to run behind PR or worry for getting it high rather
    get backlinks and improve your traffic; work hard for getting top in SERP.

    All the best :)
