    multiple toolbars on multiple computers? Who has time for that?

    or multiple toolbars on one computer? Is that even possible?

    You know - everyone says how easy it is to manipulate Alexa, but I have never seen anyone SHOW that it can be done. Would anyone like to SHOW me an example of Alexa being manipulated?

    It doesn't make sense at all but, I can imagine reference to DMOZ being dropped for Delicious at some point by one or more of the engines.

    agreed Phynder, I'd like to see it. Because it seems to me someone who has access to many computers and the TIME to spend surfing their own site aimlessly to manipulate the Alexa data should spend that time addind content and acquiring relevant links. That would do it without manupulating in this time-wasteing way. Jeez, who has that much time? .... says me getting involved in this post :)

    Alexa Booster supposedly can automate fake Alexa traffic. Even if you don't use a program like that, one way the data could be manipulated is simply by buying traffic. Of course, it only makes a difference if your traffic is relatively low to start with.

    The data is also going to be skewed based on whether the visitors to your site are likely to have the toolbar installed.

    Wonderful, but I want proof. Talk is cheap, so I will put up $100 paid via PayPal if someone can manipulate the Alexa ranking of a domain of my choice. Post a response if you are ready to take the challenge and I will make up some more "rules".

    I think they are all used, in one way or another.

    Great - I was hoping that some others would be interested, but it seems you are the only one confident that you can manipulate Alexa. Getting a spike in Alexa seems to be easy, but that is worthless. How about getting BELOW 50,000 ranking everyday for a month? Do you think you can do that?

    Not a problem, this is easily obtained. This will run you $150, but I will back it up with a guarantee. If you are interested I will require 50% down, and I will PM you the details of the guarantee. I look forward to working with you.

    And for the $150 will you explain to everyone here how to manipulate Alexa? Detailed instructions? The point of my challenge was for people to show how easy it is to manipulate, but no one seems to be able to.

    I don't think it can be done - as no one is willing to prove it.

    I agree with your comment; however, people keep claiming to be able to manipulate Alexa - yet no one is able to show that they can.

    I AM able to show that I can manipulate Alexa rankings and maintain a somewhat steady pattern, but I WILL NOT explain how (there are many reasons I can not get into this). If you are interested, I WILL prove it to you.

    Fair enough - I understand your position. However, I was looking to all the people that say "Alexa is easily manipulated" for proof. Without that proof in an open forum (how to "easily manipulate Alexa"), then I still call this notion of manipulation unproven.

    Thanks again for the offer!

    Alexahit.com has perfected the Alexa rank manipulation, you will find your proof within our service. I am not trying to spam here, just more proof that Alexa rank is being manipulated with many clients everyday. Let me know if I can help any further.

    Not exactly perfect is it? Your traffic for today is "N/A":

    That is intentional, I CONTROL Alexa. Give me a URL of your choice and 48hrs later you will see yourself.
