I have been using Avant Browser because I like the tabbed browsing. But something just occurred to me- does running the google toolbar help improve your hubpages ranking higher?
No it doesn't. However, using Alexa toolbar improves your Alexa ratings
Are you sure about using Alexa toolbar for improving Alexa ratings?
I tried downloaing Alexa a while back, but my spyware caught it, and now everytime I pull up a new browser or tab, I get a spyware message. It sucks. I have to figure out how toinstall it. I even tried to install it with my spyware programs off, and it still does it when I turn them back on.
Yep, if you are having relatively low traffic website you will see the difference. Alexa counts traffic ONLY from users who have their toolbar installed. When my main site was on initial stages, I got it from several millionth place to something like three hundred thousandth - just by installing tollbar
Thanks alot! I just started to use Alexa for couple days and this helps answer some of my questions. Btw, how you get backlink for Alexa and while we at it Google also? (Inlinks for Alexa and backlinks for Google, I guess!) I don't know how but I got plenty of backlinks with Yahoo but not those two.
Backlinks are backlinks, no matter how you look at them. Alexa still shows one backlink to my site I believe, Google always hides a lot of backlinks and shows them only when you use their webmaster panel, and Yahoo is considered the most reliable tool to check backlinks.
Yep, this really puzzled me because I saw a lot of backlinks in Yahoo but a few in Google and none in Alexa, that's why I thought maybe each one have their own way. It puzzled me because I also checked one of my competitor site and they all have plenty of backlinks for all three but mine only showed backlinks in Yahoo. Is there any trick to gain more Google backlinks or Alexa?
I've checked all of them using the traditional link: method without really going in the webmaster or other junks.
I don't know the details, but I think Alexa started using panel estimates (the way Quantcast and others do it) to augment their toolbar data some time in the last couple of months. As a result their numbers should be a bit more reliable now (they were pretty bad before that change).
edit: here are the details
So, if you have 2, 3 websites, how can it know which one to increase the rating? I haven't used it yet but still curious about it.
I too found this to be the case...just agreeing the statistic!!!!!
So NOW we all know what you do with your time.

I am still puzzled about this. Is this mean that every site that I visited if I use this toolbar will increase in rank? How does it know if my site is abc.com or xyz.com? I guess this must be one of those weird tricks.
Yes, every site you visit with Alexa toolbar active will increase its Alexa rating. And no, it does not know which site is yours - but you tend to visit your site pretty often, don't you? Remember, we are talking here about sites that hardly get a dozen of visits daily, so a couple of dozens of your own visits make a huge difference.
OK, thanks, I finally got it and have it installed and running it today..... Slow me.... But I do have so much goody that I was hesistated to add more stuff to my computer..... And yes, for my sites it would make a different because I do have a little over a dozen of visits daily.
Great information! I will be checking out the Alexa toolbar.
If anyone is running Firefox as their browser, I would recommend downloading Search Status 1.25 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/321
Search Status will install a Google Toolbar and Alexa Toolbar. The program also has a ton of other freebie SEO tools that I use on a daily basis.
If I put any more toolbars on my laptop, I won't have screen area left. As it is, I uninstalled the Yahoo bar 2 days ago, I have Google and Stumble left. However, Alexa doesn't know I'm alive, so I may have to do it whether I like it or not.
I hate a lot of the top of my screen gone, too. What I do if I want to keep a toolbar is just not view it. You can do this by clicking on the view tab at the top of your browser then click toolbars. When you see the list with all the checks beside the toolbars, just click on the ones you don't want to show and it will hide them. Any time you want to view it, just repeat the process to put it back on the screen.
So just by having a Google tool bar I can improve traffic to my hub page?
I can not understand why his web page will be gone?
I haven't clicked on the link but I'm guessing it leads to an adult site?
Install google toolbar and join alexa.

I don't think it's worth pursuing Whitney.
And yes, Alexa is considered not kosher by many anti-spyware programs.
1. The hub is still there. Yes, I looked. How could I resist. If you're confused, read the comments again.
2. Using the Google Toolbar just allows Google to collect more information. It does not help the ratings or rankings of your hubs or sites that you visit.

First of, I don't really know what I'm talking about, or to be more specific, I don't know the name of what I am talking about.But thanks to a few hubbers on here, I have taken to backlinking the easy way.

I've been trying to get a particular article on the first page of Google ever since I made it. It's on the 3rd page now, going up and down that page.I've been making backlinks to it, around a dozen by now. It does not seem to be moving much. So, just how long does it take for backlinks to kick in?I...

Do you know any idea how to make your hub no.1 in google.com?

Am beginning to notice that there is little or insignificant difference in the traffic i get from search engines to the hubs i backlink and those i did not backlink.Does it mean we can do equally well in hubpages with or without backlinks?Anybody ever noticed that?Happy hubbing to all you...

IzzyM and I have been chatting about backlinking, and disagreeing on what's the best way to go about it. She's been spending hours backlinking her Hubs on social bookmarking and backlinking sites, because she feels that's been recommended on the forums by Hub gurus. I'm not at all sure that's...
