    This phone app company put out announcement today to investors stating they had explosion of web traffic on their website.

    Investors seemed excited and bought more of the stock and helped drive their share price up.
    Sorry won't let me past link but their stock code is "ZIP" on ASX website


    I am curious as to how they improved their ranking so fast considering they have little search engine referrals and only 8 other links to their site.
    Most of the traffic appears from Algeria and Pakistan so little suspect

    Would they have purchased traffic or used a bot to get this drive?

    You can just buy Alexa traffic from some websites. It's very easy to do this. There are even services that specialize in boosting your Alexa rank.

    Dunno if this company manipulated their way to a better Alexa rank, but it's definitely possible. I got a Fiverr gig some years back and it boosted my Alexa rank significantly. Most of the visitors were from china, and from bots of course.
