    hey, I read somewhere on this forum that there was an alexa toolbar hack that dramatically increased your alexa ranking. It had something to do with the new alexa algorithm.

    Anyone know where to get this?

    the alexa toolbar hack makes alexa think that the visitors to your site have the "alexa toolbar" --thus increasing your alexa ranking.

    has anyone at all heard of this? or does anyone have this?

    Alexa Cheat

    In the Google FAQ it talks about the rel=?prefetch? command. This command(supported by both new versions of firefox and IE) in a sense forces the user to click on a link. The user doesn?t actually go to the link; their browser just fetches the url. The idea behind this is to make the next page download faster, assuming they do click on it. This is really only useful for splash pages. Ie. Click here to enter pages.

    However this command can be used to cheat on Alexa

    My Alexa Ranking <-removed because it no longer works. Use the xml.alexa.com url instead
    This will link tag will cause almost every visitor to my site to pull the Alexa toolbar API and count it as a visit to my site, whether or not they actually have the toolbar.
