    Hi everyone.
    I've been building backlinks for many websites for last months.
    I have excellent results, but there is one subject that I would like to discuss.

    I can see that sometimes, Website #1 with low numbers of Backlinks is ahead of some other website #2 with high number of optimized backlinks.

    The only difference that I could find was the higher Alexa Ranking of Website #1.
    By example :
    Website #1 got 300 BL, but a 50k Alexa Ranking.
    Website #2 (3 months old so quite new tho) got 5K BL, but a 150K Alexa Ranking.

    Do you think that Alexa Ranking is important in some way ?
    Because I guess it is quite easy to virtually boost it (testing this option right now), so Website #2 got the highest Alexa Ranking.

    What do you think ?

    Yeap, the Alexa rate is important, but still it shows only approximate data...
