    Talking Alexa Tool Bar ???
    I notice that Amazon wants affiliates to put the Alexa tool Bar on their websites and they say that any traffic going through the tool bar will have your Amazon affiliate ID in it and that you will get commissions on any of the sales through the tool bar.

    Do any of you have any experience with this and does it works.

    Thanks in advance for your comments.

    Works, tracks and is not parasitic (besides that it is a BHO)

    I used to use the Alexa toolbar (two years ago), but when it started crashing my computer several times a day, I took it off. So for that reason, I would not promote it at my site. Though, I'm sure there have been several upgrades since then.

    Alexa ranks sites, but their stats are probably misleading because mostly affiliates use their toolbar. Perhaps they want to get more average users to download the bar so that there statistics would be more realistic.

    OK - I admit it - I'm going to ask what you will probably think is a dumb question.

    What is a BHO?

    BHO = Browser Helper Object. They can be used for AdWare, but there are legitimate BHOs as well.
