    I created a new website about 3 weeks ago in an attempt to attract private lenders for my real estate business. When I signed up with Alexa I was ranked about 20,000,000. As I used Statblater, Super-AlexaBooster, and Krishananda's social bookmark service, I watched that number drop to 12,000,000, 10,000,000, 8,000,000 and now to about 4,300,000. I'm also advertising on Craigslist and Backpage as well as using Adwords. Ok... I'm starting to get some folks showing an interest in my business but I want to get at least a couple of phone calls or emails a day, rather than a couple a week. Any recommendations to ramp up traffic, including targeted traffic?

    And what my title says, how are you ranked by Alexa?... including PR and links?

    whats the point in Alexa ranking really? Means nothing in terms of real life SEO. Only goes up if people with the Alexa tool bar surf you site. In reality how many normal web surfers have the alexa toolbar?

    For me it lets me know where I stand in relation to others. I have several sites out there and I find as my rank gets better, my business (calls and emails) increase. As a real estate investor, its all about connections and who I'm both able to network with and increase targeted customers.

    Now that I'm looking for private lenders for my real estate investing business, the better my rank (and the more hits my site gets), the better chance that I will see results from the rank getting better.

    Today my rank stands at 3.6 million.
