if you’ve been participating in our Alexa Blog Hops the past few weeks, you have probably seen a significant improvement in your Alexa rank. if you are a new blogger looking to decrease your Alexa rank & gain new GFC (Google Friend Connect) followers, please participate.

you will need to install the Alexa Toolbar on your browser. it only takes a few seconds! there are toolbars for Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox.

the Alexa Toolbar will allow you to keep track of your daily Alexa Traffic Rank- which will give you an idea of how your blogging efforts are paying off. you can also use it to check out the Alexa Rank of any website.
e.g. Facebook is ranked a 2, Blogspot is a 6, Anthropologie is 5,813, and today Spearmint Baby is 171,019. your Alexa Traffic Rank will most likely fluctuate daily and the lower you are the better 🙂

here are the rules:
*download the Alexa toolbar
*add your blog name & URL to the linky list below.
*then, follow any blogs on GFC that interest you (be sure to leave a friendly comment on their blog letting them know that you are a new follower so they can follow back!) if you are already a follower of their blog, just leave a comment asking them to visit you for the Alexa hop!
*feel free to grab the Spearmint Baby Blog Hop banner & post on your blog to get new people involved. (the more new people the better 🙂
* please note that i keep this blog hop open all week so you have plenty of time to visit all of the blogs on the list!

I maybe should start looking at making a little cash, I am up to 39 cents so far after almost 2 years blogging. lol I saw you have some posts on ways to make money and I just read the one about adsense (where my 39 cents is sitting in an account), I am going to go read the other posts and see if I can get some ideas. Thanks again!! 🙂
