    Alexa is a meaningless metric if you're outside the top 100k because it's so easy to game.

    But if you feel that it validates your site, or you need the ranking to attract advertisers, then get your site in front of people who use the toolbar.

    Put your energy into creating awesome content that contributes something positive to your niche on a regular basis, instead of chasing irrelevant ego-centric metrics.

      Agree with Michael that this metric is meaningless, it's easy to manipulate because Alexa ranking is based on the number of traffics coming to your site from all sources, even bot traffics.
      Increase your site traffics, so your Alexa rank will increase too.

    Hi, Your Alexa Rank is an estimate of how popular your site is relative to all other sites. You can Produce engaging, original content, updated frequently that provides real value to your audience. Get more related sites to link to your website. it can increases the trust and quality of your site also. Find keywords that are driving traffic to your competitors and optimize your site for them.

    Forget about Alexa - it is statically meaningless for small sites - by Alexa's own admission (see below).

    Alexa rankings are based on sites that display the Alexa toolbar, a very insignificant number of sites compared to all sites.

    Read it yourself from the Alexa page titled, "How are Alexa's traffic rankings determined?" Here's what they say:
    "Alexa's traffic estimates and ranks are based on the browsing behavior of people in our global data panel" (this means sites that display the Alexa toolbar - a very tiny percentage of all sites).

    "Sites with relatively low measured traffic will not be accurately ranked by Alexa. We do not receive enough data from our sources to make rankings beyond 100,000 statistically meaningful." (For any sites ranked over 100K, the ranking is statistically meaningless.)
    Sorry sandeepg, you're wasting your time with Alexa concerns.

    Don't rely on this fluff.

    What really matters are: how many subscribers do you have per day?
    How many sales?
    How much time retention on your site's articles?

    Dont mess with metrics that don't worth

    As others have stated here, Alexa is meaningless. Steve B came the closest to nailing the real answer which is that Alexa has no clue what the traffic to your website is or how it ranks in relation to 99.9999% of the other sites. That is because, as he pointed out, they only have stats from the extremely small percentage of sites that have installed their toolbar (I've never known anybody who has done that). They are just guessing what the traffic is for your site just like they are guessing what the traffic is for almost every site on the web. Why people even pay attention to Alexa is beyond me.

    Hi S,

    Don't worry about it. Worry about few metrics. Focus your attention and energy on:

    - learning
    - practicing
    - helping folks by creating valuable content
    - building connections by promoting heavies in your niche
    - not focusing on outcomes

    In time, your results will improve.

    I'd not give thought to Alexa anyway as it is a bit of a dinosaur metric, more trusted by advertisers many years ago.

    Your alexa ranking is the last thing you need to be worrying about. It doesn't mean anything relevant for selling to your target market. If you want to boost your "hits", join a traffic exchange. If you want to boost your income, forget about Alexa ranking, and focus on proven direct marketing strategies.

    According to opinions, Alexa Ranking depends on Traffic (Bot or Real) and don't relate with link building or others SEO. Am I right, guys?

    Try to upload unique popular content everyday and continue seo for it. You have to increase traffic for your website, then automatically increase your alexa ranking.
