Alexa has long ignored Firefox users by only having a toolbar for Internet Explorer. As of this week, that has now changed.
On Monday, Alexa released it’s Firefox toolbar: Sparky. Supposedly, they waited this long to release it on Alexa’s 10 year anniversary. Sure. Whatever.
The important thing is that you can download Sparky and have your web usage counted by Alexa. This means that Firefox users now matter in Alexa rankings. It will be interesting to see if traffic rankings change a little, due to some sites being frequented more than others by Firefoxers.
By the way, urge your blog readers to install the toolbar. That will boost your own Alexa ranking by ensuring that their visits are tracked.
