Is it 3,000,000? If that was your rank in alexa I'm sure it going up. Your alexa is improving. Remember alexa is for traffic monitor tool. The bigger your alexa number the lower it's rank. Continue to promote your site and you will see your alexa will down to 1,000,000 and lower. Check my blogs, that 2 in my sig. It's quiet high in alexa. It's less than 1,000,000.

Here is a perfect way to rate highly in alexa.

Install the alexa toolbar.

Create a near blank.html file on your site.

Create a bat file that says

@echo off
start http://www.yourdomain.com/nearblank.htm

etc

then on the nearblank.htm page, have a java counter that refreshes the page every ten seconds, then after 10 refreshes it closes the browsing window.

Then just set up a scheduled task in windows to run the bat file every 30 seconds or so.

Then just leave it for a week, you will cream up the rank listings

I thought the lower the ranking the better you are doing?

meaning if one month you are 1.7mil alexa rank. Then the next month you are 545k then you are doing good and your site is being looked at. I can prove this is correct with activity logs and such. Another example is Yahoo.com is normally #1 or #2 on the alexa rank which is the best. So the lower your alexa score the better your site is and the more vistors you are receiving. your goal should be to get under 100k.

I have gone from 8mil to 515k in about 3.5 months so I think my work is starting to payoff. But Alexa is misjudgement of actual popularity because it only counts site you visit wither there toolbar or plugin installed.

That was I say on the previous post. If visitors continue to visit your site, your alexa ranking will also increasing. Alexa ranking is calculated based on the traffic.

Alexa can be useful but it is only an indication at the end of the day. You should be more concerned with your SERPS ---> organic traffic.

The first thing I wanted to mention in here is that Google and Alexa are two different monsters. When you refer to wanting to improve your ranking in Google, you are basically saying that you want to improve your search engine rank (SER).

For this you will want to look at various things. The first is to ensure that your website is search engine friendly from a coding and content point of view.

When you are talking about Alexa, you are talking about the Alexa Web Ranking service provided by Amazon.com. This is method of ranking websites based on information gathered from the Alexa toolbar. The toolbar is installed in some windows-based browers, is available as a plug-in for other browsers, and is also included in some other places. Based on the information collected Alex gives ratings to sites based on traffic and reach.

The lower the traffic rank the better, and anything over 100,000 isn't accurate at all and should be ignored. So the first challenge is to get within the top 100,000 sites so that your numbers actually mean something. Once in, you can start to take your reach numbers seriously as well.

Reach is a number that speculates how many internet users out of every million will view your site. So, for example, if Alexa reports a reach of 100, that means that for every million people on the internet, 100 of them will view your website. Obviously, the higher the number the better here.

One thing to note about Alexa is that there is no real normalization to the data. Since the data about websites is collected from only limited sources the numbers tend to be a bit off.

Alexa does not give accurate result for the website traffic. But the webmaster still used alexa as basis for traffic and to increase the alexa traffic is to get more backlinks with high traffic.

if you dont have the alexa toolbar installed you dont count as traffic. Few people have it these days.

Its fun to check your rank but in reality it means little.

If you are getting a few 100 hits a day and want a boost, just install it on your own PC and watch it rise as you tweak & check your website

As i know alexa count how many people with alexa tool bar visited your site.
I think the best variant to increase alexa rank is link exchange.

20 Ways to Increase your Alexa Rank

1. Install the Alexa toolbar or Firefox’s SearchStatus extension and set your blog as your homepage. This is the most basic step.

2. Put up an Alexa rank widget on your website. I did this a few days ago and receive a fair amount of clicks every day. According to some, each click counts as a visit even if the toolbar is not used by the visitor.

3. Encourage others to use the Alexa toolbar. This includes friends, fellow webmasters as well as site visitors/blog readers. Be sure to link to Alexa’s full explanation of their toolbar and tracking system so your readers know what installing the toolbar or extension entails.

4. Work in an Office or own a company? Get the Alexa toolbar or SS Firefox extension installed on all computers and set your website as the homepage for all browsers. Perhaps it will be useful to note that this may work only when dynamic or different IPs are used.

5. Get friends to review and rate your Alexa website profile. Not entirely sure of its impact on rankings but it might help in some way.

6. Write or Blog about Alexa. Webmaster and bloggers love to hear about ways to increase their Alexa rank. They’ll link to you and send you targeted traffic (i.e. visitors with the toolbar already installed). This gradually has effects on your Alexa ranking.

7. Flaunt your URL in webmaster forums. Webmasters usually have the toolbar installed. You’ll get webmasters to visit your website and offer useful feedback. It’s also a good way to give back to the community if you have useful articles to share with others.

8. Write content that is related to webmasters. This can fall in the category of domaining and SEO, two fields in which most webmasters will have the Alexa toolbar installed. Promote your content on social networking websites and webmaster forums.

9. Use Alexa redirects on your website URL. Try this: http://redirect.alexa.com/redirect?www.doshdosh.com . Replace doshdosh.com with the URL for your website. Leave this redirected URL in blog comments as well as forum signatures. This redirect will count a unique IP address once a day so clicking it multiple times won’t help. There is no official proof that redirects positively benefit your Alexa Rank, so use with caution.

10. Post in Asian social networking websites or forums. Some webmasters have suggested that East Asian web users are big Alexa toolbar fans, judging by the presence of several Asia-based websites in the Alexa Top 500. I suggest trying this only if you have the time or capacity to do so.

11. Create a webmaster tools section on your website. This is a magnet for webmasters who will often revisit your website to gain access to the tools. Aaron Wall’s webpage on SEOTools is a very good example.

12. Get Dugg or Stumbled. This usually brings massive numbers of visitors to your website and the sheer amount will have a positive impact on your Alexa Rank. Naturally, you’ll need to develop link worthy material.

13. Use PayperClick Campaigns. Buying advertisements on search engines such as Google or Exact Seek will help bring in Traffic. Doubly useful when your ad is highly relevant to webmasters.

14. Create an Alexa category on your blog and use it to include any articles or news about Alexa. This acts as an easily accessible resource for webmasters or casual search visitors while helping you rank in the search engines.

15. Optimize your popular posts. Got a popular post that consistently receives traffic from the search engines? Include a widget/graph at the bottom of the post, link to your Alexa post or use Alexa redirection on your internal URLs.

16. Buy banners and links for traffic from webmaster forums and websites. A prominent and well displayed ad will drive lots of webmaster traffic to your website, which can significantly boost your rank.

17. Hire forum posters to pimp your website. Either buy signatures in webmaster forums or promote specific articles or material in your website on a regular basis. You can easily find posters for hire in Digital Point and other webmaster forums.

18. Pay Cybercafe owners to install the Alexa toolbar and set your website as the homepage for all their computers. This might be difficult to arrange and isn’t really a viable solution for most. I’m keeping this one in because some have suggested that it does work.

19. Use MySpace . This is a little shady so I don’t recommended it unless you’re really interested in artificially inflating your Alexa Rank. Use visually attractive pictures or banners and link them to your redirected Alexa URL. This will be most effective if your website has content that is actually relevant to the MySpace Crowd.

20. Try Alexa auto-surfs. Do they work? Maybe for brand new sites. I think they are mostly suitable for new websites with a very poor Alexa rank. Note that there be problems when you try to use auto surfs alongside contextual ads like Adsense. They aren’t also long term solutions to improving your Alexa Rank so I suggest using with caution.

and what happens if you exchange links with 1 million websites and get 0 visitors who have the alexa toolbar..... you would waste years of your life.

Say it like it is, increase the number of users with the alexa toolbar installed who visit your site.

Many users are facing problems with alexa. The main problem with Alexa is its rankings are based on users who have installed the Alexa toolbar onto their browser. If you do not have the toolbar running, you do not affect the rankings of the sites you visit. The next big problem with Alexa is it is very easy to cheat the system. Just get a few friends to install the toolbar and have them surf your site everyday. It does not take many people to break into the top 100,000. You can even do it all by yourself by refreshing your site over and over again. Get a dozen friends to do it and you’re breaking into top 20,000 easily.

Best regards

As I see in your post Alexa have lots of problem and I can conclude that Alexa has low credibility if I based on what you are saying...Correct me if I'm wrong...
