    I just want to know if anyone knows how many website visitors it will take for the Alexa Rank to start to kick in...

    Also, if all my visitors have the Alexa Toolbar installed, then how many visits would it take ?

    I'm in testing phase now, but I just want to know if anyone knows an "estimated" answer to this...

    Thanks !

    Not sure how many you need but it took a while for my sites to show up, I added the traffic widget and my rank increased almost double so this might also help getting you in quicker!

    The code is in the webmasters corner of the Alexa site on in the widgets section - the Alexa Traffic rank button!

    Code:
    <SCRIPT type='text/javascript' language='JavaScript' 
    src='http://xslt.alexa.com/site_stats/js/t/a?url=www.yoursite.com'>
    </SCRIPT>
    
    Add this to the bottom of your page or somewhere hidden if you want but this should allow alexa to track all your visitors not just the ones using the toolbar.

    Yeh the badge helps alexa track your visitors, it also takes a month or so for alexa rank to kick in even if your website gets a ton of visitors since alexa does a 3 month average

    I can tell you that after a few months of being operational, I have seen sites that receive as little as 500 unique hits a day get ranked (around 1,500,000).
