    The amount of targeted visitors to your website is the most important. If you have a lot your Alexa rank will go up.

    I think its not much important, Just we able to know that where user coming from. I think SEM rush rank important.

    Any guess?

    as far as SEO, no. The only way you can grow your alexa rank naturally is if people who have the alexa toolbar actually visit your site. This is usually tech-minded people. So tech blogs usually have a higher chance of quickly growing their alexa rank.

    Alexa ranks are pretty worthless and are only some-what important if you plan on selling you website for a premium price.

    Alexa is just another website selling an image. Use the illusion when necessary but don't be used by it.

    4 to 5 years ago Alexa was on the SEs page one and she was very popular as she had an amazing pair of big knockers - not sure what happened to her - but I do know she was at that time more significant than Alexa the rating site ever was!

    When I want to buy a product, use a website services or signup some where, I always check the pagrank, alexa rank and the number of indexed pages and backlinks to see how much I can trust that site. I have a toolbar for that in firefox (WebRank Toolbar) and I got used to it...

    Itself it is not if you are not selling your site or traffic.
    But it shows you the GEO location of your visitors.
    Google also pays attansion on this factor, let's say most of your visitors are from UK then it will up in SERP your site in UK.
    But G has its own instruments so it most likely doesn't use Alexa data, but who knows.

    It is the ranking system that makes use of the ISP data for the traffic. Most of the data is guesstimate as well as from the toolbar. So there is not much weight to it. Still people ask for it. I wonder why people go after it. If your aim is to make money of traffic that converts, avoid alexa ranking at all costs possible.

    It is believed that a site with an Alexa rating of 100,000 or less receives a decent amount of traffic. As other users have said, Alexa rankings can be easily manipulated. Approximately 85% of advertisers determine the value of the advertising space on your site based on your Alexa rank.

    Alexa is a ranking system. It rank your site according to the number of visitors that you get in your site.
    The greater the visitors the lower the Alexa ranking. and Vice Versa.

    also it can be important if you promote any affilate program on your site (to let advertiser monitor persentage of visits on your site and clicks to affilate link, as there exisis black technics to make all site visits become link clicks)

    Concentrate on Alexa only if you have any plans of selling your website in the future.

    A top 100k Alexa rank opens a number of doors.
