    I have 2 clients I am working with, I need to drop their website's alexa rank through fake traffic.

    After sending 1000 hits to the sites that was a few days ago, I've seen a increased in their alexa rank and I was happy. Now the problem is I have already sent 4000 hits the sites so I am curious and checked again the rankings, 1 site has alexa rank go up instead of dropping, the other one is fine.

    From 395,000 it goes up to 400,000. I am nearly finish with the 5000 hits to this site but of course I cannot present this kind of result to my customer cause the rank supposed to drop not to go up.

    My question is how can this possibly happen? I am continously sending hits everyday so how can it's alexa rank goes up?

    I'm not sure how "live" Alexa is.... Is there not a delay between reflecting stats?

    What do you mean?

    Yeah and the odd thing is the other site is doing good so I can't say that my method is not working.
