    Okay - as most people know, I am not an IMer, I am a hoster / coder / server type guy so I need to ask something about Alexa rank.

    I put together a website to point people to a month or so ago and thats about it really - no advertising apart from a few links in sig blocks on forums.

    Now, how do I go up the Alexa rank with that site - over the past month or so I am now up to 300k ish in alexa.

    All I really want to know is:
    - Without advertising, how does Alexa know you exist?
    - How does a month old site go from 1M+ to 300k ish in a month and a bit?

    Cheers

    Fatboy.

    You can please Alexa even with junk traffic...if you really want to lower your Alexa rank quick then prefer to buy some cheap junk traffic.Like I saw a service in BST promising 10k visitors in less than $5! Not a bad deal to give a try I guess!! ;)

    Alexa cooperated with Microsoft. Alexa spyware is included in any Windows machine. Stats will be sent to Alexa & MSN. Google it to find more information about Alexa spyware.

    Alexa Rank = Traffic Rank
