    Great tip for Alexa ratings. By far the most important one is the toolbar installed into your browser. With this toolbar, if you visit your own blog 3-4 times a day, you should get at least under 100k. Another thing to note about Alexa is as you say, they get most of their data from their toolbar. Only the more “technical” groups will install the bar, so it is more heavily weighted towards technology-related blogs and sites.
