Do you know how is your Alexa rank calculated? Alexa rank is not calculated on your page rank, google analytics or any other stats! It is calculated on the number of visitors that visit your website with the Alexa toolbar installed in their browser. I never believed this until I did some research and found more on this.
Evil way to increase your Alexa Rank
This might be one of the only blogs that might give you this method. As I mentioned above, Alexa ranking depends on the number of visitors you get with the Alexa toolbar installed, hence the visit is not a unique visit. Alexa toolbar doesn’t check the IP and counts 1 refresh as a visitor.
3) Open your website and turn on auto refresher
Longer auto refresher is on, the better. Open it in atleast 10 tabs for 10x speed. Keep the refresher at minimum 10 seconds.
4) Do this everyday for 1-2 hours
Depending on your speed and the time you do it everyday, your alexa rank will rise faster and faster. ( Rise = lower in number)
This is what Alexa is! People feel proud of being in top 100,000 Alexa but it is really worthless! I can get there by having a blank website, so can you 👿 Advertisers fall for the Alexa gimmick. It is not always that way, many websites have a legit Alexa Rank.
Sensonize.com has an Alexa rank of 118,784.. Interested in advertising, anyone? 👿

So what is your take on Twitter? Today, Probloggers like John Chow and Jeremy Scheomaker say Twitter is the new RSS. I feel the same.. But I have still not been able to figure out the Twitter game. I believe it is like a Status Message which you use on MSN or Yahoo Messenger. John Chow uses it to share his life and blog updates where as some people use it just for a small chat session.
Quote directly from Twitter:
“Twitter is a service for friends, family, and coâ€“workers toÂ communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?”
I guess I was right 😉 It is like your status message which allows your friends, co-workers and family to know what are you upto 😉 Ive recently joined twitter and I am following 6 people and 4 are following me. (Follow me on Twitter) I will soon run contests and update my readers via twitter. Make sure you follow me 😉
I will use Twitter for my friends and readers. What will you use it for? What is your take on twitter? Do post your twitter profile and follow me 😛
