    Alexa is weird, I bought a domain a little while ago ( a week ) and its ranking is now below 2 million... Awstats says no visitors came.

    Same here , i bought a domain with about 40k alexa rank ,and i was expecting a huge number of visitors , so i parked it with sedo and guess what : less than 10 unique last week.
    So i vote for no , Alexa is completely BS

    With software like PRStorm, Alexa Booster etc I think it is easy to cheat the Alexa ranking system. I bought my domain about 40 days ago, its first ranking a week later was around the 17 million mark and as of now its just under 600K. But my rise in Alexa rank hasn't really increased my quality and quantity of traffic. I am always on the lookout for more quality traffic...

    Wow 2k a day, I'm only getting around 200 a day (according to my Analytics stats). What exactly are you doing to get that much traffic and are those methods free? Just thought I would ask :)
