What's up friends? Today's hot topic is Alexa HOW in the world does it rank sites? here is what I know: 1. no matter what they are stating the toolbar has nothing to do with the ranking algorithm. 2. Their rank is based on hits. 3. there are tools in the download section which all they do is hit your site and you gain rank. 4. my rank increases each time their crawler visits my sites. Therefore I assume they have a way to hack/access site logs and read the hit amounts. I already use advanced hitting tactics and my sites improves by 300k-500k points per day, silly ranking system... now the main question is how in the world they access the logs to read the hit amounts??
