    Alexa Widget Would Improve Alexa Ranking?

    Was just wondering, if I place Alexa widget on all of my website pages, will that help in improving the Alexa rank?

    I know there is no benefit of Alexa rank, but I care about it

    No, it will not.

    This is not how Alexa works. Alexa ranking is based on how many visitors came to your website from Alexa Toolbar. So, using an Alexa widget on your website will not make a differece.

    No, but using the Alexa toolbar and visit your site a lot and create pageviews will help a lot

    Not really, I'm not even using Alexa anymore... it slowed down my Firefox and doesn't show the ranks

    Also, check my Alexa, Belgium shows high indeed but other countries do MUCH better (while Belgium is noit big but the others are )

    So if you really want to improve your Alexa, put up a "Download the Alexa Toolbar" ad on your site.

    You can even make a few bucks by implementing a custom Amazon associate toolbar.
    Submit Your Webmaster Related Sites to the NB Directory
    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    Alexa rank is absolutely worthless and totally inaccurate. Webmasters should never focus on it when judging about a website.

    To answer your question -- No, Alexa widget won't improve your rank. However, Alexa toolbar will.
