    Hi everybody,

    Here is my problem:

    I codded a bot using Javascript Headless Browser PhantomJS (and it's cousin CasperJS). Google it if you don't know them, their advantages over php curl / perl bots is that they load Javascript and images (that means they appear on GA and can do many more things on a website).

    I am able to generate around 15k visits on any site a day.

    I would like to also increase my alexa ranking with this bot.

    As far as I read, your alexa ranking will improve if people using the alexa toolbar visit your site.

    Is their any chance to install the toolbar on my headless browser ? I heard firefox / chrome extentions such as Alexa toolbar are pure javascript codes.

    If I could grab the code I might be able to include it in my bot, when loading a page (and then send data to Alexa).

    Thanks a lot for your help !

    I think there was something like loadExtension or loadPlugin in casperjs config when you call casper.create().

    Yes I saw that, the only missing thing now if the JS code of alexatoolbar. Couldn't grab it with Chrome, I will check with Firefox.
    I keep you posted if I make it !
