I was doing some more research on Alexa
rankings. They are pretty useless... but I found out that a lot of search engines and advertising programs do put a fair bit of weight on them.
Basically, they are mostly affected by how many people browse a site using the Alexa Toolbar
. Alas, the official toolbar only works in IE for Windows.
However, there is a company who makes a toolbar, that has integrated Alexa rankings in it, that works in FireFox, that works on a Mac.
Here's the toolbar from "A9"
I installed it, and it seems to be working. Currentlyl, ehMac.ca's Alexa ranking is only 239,498. (See screen shot below)
Can I get as many of my ehMac peeps as possible download this toolbar for FireFox for Mac or PC, (Or on IE for Windows if you are using Windows) and set ehMac.ca to your home page, and check it out... every day!
Let's see if we can improve our ranking!
Also, if you could also add the google toolbar
, that will also help ehMac.ca's Google Page ranking.
Would be greatly appreciated!
