Evil Alexa Ranking

By Mohnish On March 21, 2009 Under Guides and Tuts, Tips and Tricks, Websites

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.

1) Install the Alexa Toolbar

2) Install the Auto Refresh Firefox Addon

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? 👿

    Not really sure if this works any more, coz alexa has changed their ranking system recently. Till some time ago, yes this did work.

    @Complete internet Marketing – You come and leave a comment on my blog with keywords and except me to reply back? lol.. As I said, this is just an “evil” way. Sensonize.com doesn’t use it.

    @Farrhad – I’m currently testing it. Lets see if it works 🙂

    It’s a good idea mate, but it won’t work. You are really just wasting your time because they have LONG since changed this system. I’d advise everyone else not to try this, because it will simply be a waste. However, keep coming up with those killer ideas! Installing a widget on your website is actually a BIG benefit to your ranking (just not the refreshing part of the trick)

    Once this method was evil indeed 🙂

  10. Alexa rankings can’t be the sole determinants of measuring a sites importance and popularity as the http://www.alexa.com/data/details/main/fortunehotels.in rankings do not take into account all the browser types like Windows Vista etc.

    Man I don’t know what to say on this, because if alexa ppl realize this, chances are high they might ban you.
    I have alexa rank of 23K and IMHO
    The best way to get Good alexa is :

    1. regularly updated client
    2. Promote on social bookmarking sites like digg/reddit/Su – Traffic spike will help
    3/ Put alexaw widget on your blog
    4. Don’t forget to install Alexa toolbar. 🙂
    5. Traffic= Alexa ..
    So to cut the long story short, try to get the good traffic by hook.Crook …
    SEO/PPC/Social Bookmarking and how …
    Hope this will help..
    Else Evil way is here ..
    Though Love the post.. Tweeting it 🙂

    Harsh – You are correct! I don’t deny it. But this is just an evil way..the only clean and nice way to get traffic is to do alot of networks and get visitors (free). Or the paid one is to buy them or use Adwords etc 🙂

    Thanks for your feedback guys! 🙂

    Thanks for the thought of it, but I really don’t think Alexa rank would be critical for me.

    That’s extremely stupid, to be honest. It’s all for publicity, and of course, the money. I honestly don’t care about Alexa ranking anymore now.
