Alexa Toolbar for Firefox – Get Sparky!

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.

    It is going to be very very interesting how Alexa ratings will look after a couple of months. A quick look to the stats on one of my sites today gave me 63% Firefox so now you have lets say an additional 50% to add on stats on specific sites that before where not counted for there Alexa rankings.

    mmmm interesting.

    Hi Vic,

    You’re correct indeed. I suspect that tech-oriented sites will especially notice some Alexa boost. We’ll just have to see.
