    The particular plugin scans the entire set of links on any page of your blog while someone is watching it and it adds a JavaScript event to each of them, which upon clicking on the link (no matter is it a Left Click or a Right Click) will prefix it with the Alexa Redirect URL: in this way the person visiting your blog will visit the desired URL by forwarding the URL to Alexa. Here is an example - you have a link on your blog like yourblog.com, but when the user clicks on it, it will transform into http://redirect.alexa.com/redirect?http://www.yourblog.com/page/2. In the same time, when a Search-Engine bot like Google visits your page it will not trigger the JavaScript event, because they are not JavaScript-aware: and in this way you "Alexa-Rating boosting efforts" will not mess your Google rating and search results positions.

    And what happens if visitor does not have Alexa meter on his browser? Alexa counts only visits with toolbar installed.

    Also it may affect page loading time if there is any kind of problem with Alexa servers...

    I don't think this is something I would recommend to anyone just to gain some Alexa rank...
