    Here's a great article on 20 quick ways increase your Alexa page rank. The top tip is to install the Alexa tool bar. I will look through the tips myself and see what we can do to improve BAF's Alexa rank.

    Edit - If the link above doesn't work, have a look at this link.

    Sounds like it could be of some great use. When did you start implying this Fergal? I do wish for some feedback, as I could always use a few more ranks in my Alexa ranking too :)

    Alexa ranking .... is not very important in my view

    As Alexa ranking is Manley based on the traffic of your website
    it like if you are have Good Alexa ranking that mean you are having good traffic and if ranking bad they your traffic is bad

    by using trick u can only Alexa ranking unto few hundreds or thousands...there will no big change in Alexa ranking

    its like
    if you are having traffic of 10 to 30 per/day your ranking will be in between 22,00,000 to 25,00,000

    if you are having traffic of 100 to 150 per/day your ranking will be in between 400,000 to 450,000

    if you are having traffic of 400 to 600 per/day your ranking will be in between 110,000 to 120,000

    if you are having traffic of 400 to 600 per/day your ranking will be in between 110,000 to 120,000

    if you are having traffic of 15,000 to 20,000per/day your ranking will be in between 13,000 to 16,000

    if you are having traffic of 75,000to 85,000 per/day your ranking will be in between 4000 to 4500

    if you are having traffic of 100,000 + your ranking will be in between around 3000

    if you are having traffic of 150,000 + your ranking will be in between around 2000

    this figures are approximate value ..... but this value are some how close to the exact values

    Just this morning JBMedia. I started by downloading the Alexa Toolbar. Unfortunately there isn't a toolbar for Google Chrome, which is the browser I use most, hence I'm not sure that this first step will make much difference.

    Step No. 2 is to "Put up an Alexa rank widget on your website" I just might do that over the next few days.

    BAF's Alexa rank was over 115,750 only a few days ago. Now it has dropped to 114,457 so we are going in the right direction.

    That is good Fergal, I think here is some problem in typing I think.
    Few days ago - 15,750 and now - 114,457

    I think it should be 14,457.

    Thanks

    That is fine now, I think BAF will be growing faster soon and rank will be increasing also.

    Step 2, done. Alexa widget installed at the bottom of every page on the forum. I'm not completely happy with the size and location of the widget so I may change it in the future.

    Benjamin, good to hear that your Alexa ranking is improving.

    Good News Fergal, BAF Traffic Rank Increased - 113,947

    The widget looks good. But yes the size is not matching. Its Ok, because the rank is increasing.

    EDIT: I downloaded the toolbar and started using it. I have also written a review of BAF in Alexa I think it will increase the rank.

    According to my Alexa toolbar, it's 114,457. WEll, it isn't that much important since I read that Alexa ranking is not trustworthy and not exact.

    Yes, Alexa Toolbar is wrong and the Alexa Widget on the BAF site is also wrong if you want to check the correct then click on the widget the bottom of the page and you will see the correct one.

    How can you tell that they are not correct? I know Alexa rankings they are always correct.

    Hello to all!

    Okey I am new here!
    I would like to comment in this thread.

    Putting a widget on you site or on your blog can also help, I recommend the "Alexa Site Stats Button," and enter your website or blogs' address (www.namehere.extension). Click the "Build Widget" button next to the text box you just entered your site into. Get a code and copy it into your site or in your blog.

    Hi bubblesbane,

    Thanks for that, you can see we already have that widget at bottom.
    If you can tell us how it looks then it would be good.

    Please share the tips also.

    Thanks

    Wow some really good tips there. Wonder if they would work. My fave one was to ask cybercafe owners to use your site as homepage .. lol...wonder what their reaction would be ?

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I had expected that the Alexa widget would automatically update when our Alexa rank changed. However, it is static at the install date, 29 Aug. Does anyone know why this is?
