When your site gets the visit from the user who uses Alexa toolbar, Alexa will track that visit, which can increase Alexa rank.   Be sure to link to Alexa’s full explanation of their toolbar and tracking system so your readers know what installing the toolbar or extension entails.

Start commenting on Popular Websites
