    I submitted my website to Alexa yesterday. How much will it take until it's indexed and until I can see its stats there?

    Thanks.

    Home Page:
    Simply go ahead and register your website on Alexa. You will be asked to confirm ownership by adding a "meta" tag to your homepage or uploading a file on your server.

    After you've done so, your site should be ranked within 24 hours after which you will have to work it to a better ranking which will be directly related to your number of visitors.

    Yeah, I did so. I uploaded the file to my website yesterday. It should be ranked in 2-3 hours then.
    Thanks for your reply.

    Am I doing something wrong? The file is still there and it says my website is claimed.
    Still, I see no rank. I am getting ~50 daily visitors.

    The visitors must have the Alexa toolbar or a toolbar that has the Alexa meter before Alexa counts the visits. If your visitors aren't feeding Alexa traffic info then it still won't rank.

    And install the Toolbar on your own site if you want a one week alexa burst...Install it on a few pc's to boost that....and install 2-3 different browsers per pc to pump it again
