    I have never found Alexa to give you the right stats, I would say leave it at that and concentrate on some other stuff

    The problem is that many sponsors take Alexa rank religion. They believe in it as it was holy. I also have the same problem one a few sites that the unique visitor number is great, but Alexa rank is comparably low.

    Exactly. It's normal that tech-related websites will perform much better in the Alexa ranking systems than for example websites about beers. But if the site gets known enough the Alexa should increase anyways, it's just sad that some companies use this as the ultimate ranking factor.

    However most of the websites having an Alexa of over 1 million are mostly crap (mostly, not always ).

    There's actually a "black hat" way to increase Alexa Ranking. If you want to risk it, there is actually a URL that includes your domain name that's 301 Redirects to your URL. That's the way that Alexa counts the traffic, which is the 301 Redirect through the Alexa Toolbar.

    I tested it a while back, and putting that 301 redirect URL into your signature will redirect people (and bots, etc.) through that redirect and on to your site...which then will cause Alexa to think that there is more traffic on your site.

    The Alexa rankings can be "gamed" too easily. This is one reason why I don't put much faith into the Alexa rankings.
    Need links? Try AuthorLinks where you can buy or sell links based on Authorship and Klout score. Check out my blog or like me on Facebook.

    What link is that? For NetBuilders for example?
    Here's the Alexa page: Netbuilders.org Site Info

    as far as i know, alexa is not very accurate, it's just a valuation, just check your google pr and pv/uv, that is more accurate options i suggest you can take more care of, synthetically think about your website, don't just do one

    To increase your Alexa rank in the long run, I would highly recommended that one focus on developing quality content which attracts and maintains a large audience instead of purely focusing on artificially increasing your Alexa Rank.
