    Wink Alexa Extension

    So, I have the Alexa extension installed on my Chrome browser. Anyone want to know their site's alexa rank? Well you can post it below, and I'll tell you. Or, you can find out for yourself after installing it here: www.alexa.com/toolbar.

    We actually ran a test here one time many years ago...maybe 10 years or more now....

    We had about 20 sites we tracked the results and manipulated the stats on all 20 sites in a matter of weeks.

    Traffic changes were negligible, and yet the rank increased on some of the sites by millions, and proved then without a doubt how you could manipulate the rank number.

    Lightbulb Absolutely! LOL

    What a wonderful world this would be, if some company came out with a trustworthy ranking system. One that put the most weight on usefulness of a site.

    Google needs to start PR back up and use Google Analytics to rank sites. Mark my words: All hosting servers, world wide should have the Google analytic tracking software already installed. Tracking should be mandatory and a free service from Google. Right?

    Whew!

    Any other solutions?

    Alexa could improve theirs, but they are not deep into the search engine results business.

    Anyhoo, looks like my Alexa ranking is going up. I wonder where it will top out at, before it goes back down. I've really been working on generating traffic lately, mostly from referrals.

    PROFRBcom: Your site has a 765k Alexa Traffic Rank, w/ 44 sites linking in.

    Ah! Looks like it has an average speed. Have you worked on developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ yet?

    44 links... lol

    Worked on the speed... in every possible way given how little server access I have. Man I need to get new hosting!



    Thanks for checking

    Always get a second opinion.

    Went to add the Alexa toolbar - and Chrome warned my about the fact that it could read and change data I entered.
    Did you get that? Are you using Chrome only for rankings so don't mind?
