    Alexa isn't accurate at all because it relies on "traffic count" + "backlink count" to form alexa ranks.

    I could easily buy some traffic on bhw for $9 = 10,000 visitors on BHW and run xrumer to blast the hell out of internet to get tons of backlinks to boost my alexa rank.

    So never rely on Alexa rankings:)

    Who told you that you need 'backlinks' for Alexa ranking. Traffic is all that you need. Only from those who have the Alexa Toolbar installed. Alexa basically tracks visits from Alexa users to your site. More varied these visits are, (i.e. from different users) better your ranking.

    I only agree with you that Alexa rankings are inaccurate and more importantly they mean nothing to most people. So STOP bothering about Alexa unless you want to impress people. Here is what I agree with regards Alexa's flaws-

    1 Even though a few million people may have the toolbar installed, those who have the toolbar installed, are more likely to be technologically savvy and more likely to be webmasters interested in their Alexa ranking. This means that the sites that these people tend to visit are more likely to have a higher Alexa ranking.

    2 The best way to improve an Alexa ranking is to install the toolbar and just visit your own site a few times a day (and even better if you can get a friend to do the same) and then watch the big improvement in the site?s Alexa ranking. Make sure you do not visit your competitors site, as just visiting them will improve their ranking! This makes a mockery of the Alexa rankings.
