    Default Decreasing Alexa rank using iframes ?

    Hello,

    I have been reading on many webmaster forums that 1x1 px iframe traffic can reduce Alexa rank and was curious about it, hence I decided to give it a shot.

    I had an unused domain which I used for this, the alexa rank for this was NA. Now I set up the iframe on a site of mine which has a high traffic and an alexa rank of 60,000.

    I set up a test site on the unused domain and installed Analytics on it. The iframe from the high traffic site was pointed at it.

    Here is the code I put,
    PHP Code:
    <iframe src="hxxp://testsiteDOTcom" width="1" height="1"></iframe
    Result:

    It has been over 2 weeks and the test site has got thousands of hits but the Alexa rank hasn't changed, it still shows NA.

    Why hasn't the rank changed ? What I'm I doing wrong ?

    Please do help.
    Regards.

    Don't think that works. Basically traffic from Alexa Toolbar installed browsers is counted. Otherwise Alexa does not know, if you visit that page (or your customers).
    So you have to let Alexa KNOW about the traffic. Either "fake bots", faking the useragent and sending the Alexa-coded string to Alexa, or use traffic-exchange websites, which
    offer Alexa-Toolbar surfing sites.

    Just test it by yourself ... Yes, you CAN drive traffic to websites using IFRAMES, but where should Alexa know it from? Either you should have installed their code (certified metrics, cost around US$ 10,00 per month) or you use Alexa Toolbar users exchange systems. I'm close to have that done in my TrafficTwister system and will release it for free to the public. It requires the toolbar installed. You will visit (by autosurf) other Alexa Toolbar users, they will visit you back. IFRAMES won't work (beside the "certified metrics").

    Even if you would use Alexa Toolbar on a website with IFRAMES, THIS DOES NOT affect the iframed website. You can use httpFOX to determine, which datas are send and retrieved to and from Alexa. Only the focussed URL, you are on, is valid. Otherwise you could built up a massive huge website spider-link, where each website has an Iframe from another one :-)
