San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 06, 2011
Alexa Internet today announced the free Alexa Toolbar Creator, offering website owners the ability to create their own custom browser toolbars powered by Alexa.
The Alexa Toolbar Creator, available at at http://www.alexa.com/toolbar-creator, allows a site owner to build a custom toolbar that installs in the Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers. Site owners can choose from a selection of features to add to their toolbar, including their company logo, site search, custom menus, links to popular content on their site, and social networking features. And, by including dynamic headlines from blogs or other RSS/Atom feeds, site owners can message their customers in real time, wherever they are on the web.
“A custom toolbar is a great way to build community, increase loyalty, and engage your audience," says Dave Sherfesee, Alexa General Manager. "Some of our early adopters are already seeing their custom toolbars generate incremental traffic and increased revenue on their websites."
Every toolbar includes built-in access to Alexa data, so toolbar users get the advantage of Alexa's website reputation information as they surf the web. And, custom toolbar users will join the millions of people in Alexa's Traffic Panel, helping make the web a better place for everyone by contributing to Alexa's free, public traffic metrics.
