    Why you want to increase your alexa ranking? it is nothing than numbers.
    I'd suggest you to focus on your SERPs rather than wasting your time on getting useless and easy to manipulate alexa numbers.

    Alexa's ranking system tracks the popularity of internet sites around the world. It bases its ranking schema on the level of traffic each site receives from the number of individuals that check out a site by having the Alexa Toolbar installed.

    I really agree with TheProgrammer. Alexa is just no game. If you got keyword in top SERP, than forget about alexa, whether it is increase or decrease. Its just waste of time.

    Alexa Ranking is a load of rubbish, just focus on increasing traffic and rankings. Alexa Rankings can drop in a couple of days for no apparent reason

    Alexa Ranking doesn't do anything.It is just numbers that's all. If you're getting the same amount of traffic after the down in ranking means, just don't care about that.

      Alexa is just one metric and can be manipulated. I would use google analytics or come up with your own utility that parses your logs to track traffic.

      For example, I have two sites that get between 2000-3000 unique visitors a day and rank around 300k with Alexa. But another related to SEO gets 1/10 of the visitors but is actually ranking higher with Alexa. That is because more people that use my SEO related site use the Alexa toolbar which inflates the traffic number.

      I have my own utilities though that I can get a snapshot of my sites traffic. I compare that to what google reports also.

      Check top 300 Google SERP results free. tracks and graphs changes for multiple domains/keywords/regions. Also includes advanced keyword density tool.

    Alexa is based on traffic. So try to get more traffic to increase your Alexa ranking. Forum posting is a great way to get targeted traffic.
