I've learned a few things today about something called "the alexa toolbar".
Apparently, if you have this installed, then you give one vote to every site you visit. Then alexa ranks all the sites depending on all the votes.
I've heard about it before and though "yeah, who cares." Well, based on some stuff I have learned today, I now care. Apparently they now have so many users that these numbers are starting to have some valuable meaning.
So, naturally, in my ongoing quest to be a good site steward, I would like to make the folks that visit this site regularly aware of this thing. I predict that if five people that are regulars here start using this stuff, then it will have a major impact on our alexa rank. And that will help attract more people here.
For those people that are webmasters (have their own web site) you might be interested in this free plugin:
