    I've been trying to fake a little bit alexa rank for a single purpose with no success (trying to rank under 600.000). Basically I focused with jingling and mostly with Hitleap.
    AFAIK alexa takes visits using one of their browser bar embbded source code to elaborate statistics, so hitleap should have been the deal. With 3K daily visits for ~2months I was assuming the ranking, but I see that is not sufficient.

    Loads of ppl are using HL, but I cannot have clear the real uses of this. For SEO wont be great idea since bounce rate increases dramatically and for adsense the ban risk is terribly high.
    Maybe is useless (or maybe there are smart people that found an media network that pays per impression and are not able to filter this)
    Any ideas?

    First guy who's trying so hard to achieve some Alexa Ranks.
    They're of no worth. And easily manipulated.

    I once had a site drop from 2M(local) to 21k overnight. Not a big deal.
    Don't waste anymore of your time on it.

    The browser needs to have the Alexa tool bar or Alexa code enabled for it to count. The last time I sold a domain and the buyer was even remotely interested in Alexa would have been about 5 years ago. These days trust measured by those snake oil sellers at Moz is about the only thing people seem to be interested in.

    Alexa ranking just ranks. Is there any other use of it?

    Alexa rank does not matter for us (we know it can be faked)...but it matter for clients of certain business they see alexa rank of their website before purchasing services for them.

    Alexa can be manipulated easily. You don't need to work so hard for it. Just do your other SEO, SMM tasks with purity and without spamming. Your Alexa will improve automatically.

    Honestly Alexa isn't that important u can spam refresh with the addon instaled and rank super quickly. Not worth etc.

    You mean alexa does not consider unique IP using their addon?

    BTW, I was wondering on the uses of Hitleap, not Alexa :p
