    Is it legitimate traffic? Not bots or anything? Never seen a site with that much traffic not get updated within 2 months. Is your site brand new?

    why waste time on what alexa has your site ranked for. That is not going to give you any more traffic.

    Maybe Alexa just doesn't update for 3 months on new domains. That is one major possibility that I can think of.

    Maybe he wants to eventually flip the domain or something so the Alexa ranking can be very important for that, or hundreds of other reasons.

    From my experience: install All in one Webmaster plugin, submit your site to Alexa and in 1-2 days you'll see your Alexa rank. It updates almost every day.
