*If there is a more appropriate section for this thread, I would like to politely request that a mod or admin move this thread to that respective section. Ok, So I bought this site for cheap off of flippa about three weeks ago. I'm not really in the mood to actually put in some serious SEO effort on the site. So here's what I did with the site: I bought a few gigs off of fiver. 3000 backlink pyramid. 10 edu backlinks (bs. it was one of the those .edu.another extension link) and "add your site to 500+ Social book marks. I put a little banner exchange on the bottom of my site (hasn't done much according to the statcounter module on my wordpress). About three weeks back, I bought 10000 "live traffic visitors" from a service on BHW. I don't think it was legit though because statcounter is telling me only 400 hits to date whereas the cpanel for the traffic campaign is saying 1500. Not to mention the statcounter only started getting into the hundred AFTER I bought those fiverr gigs. Anyways, so here's what's going on. My Alexa ranking has been a steady 7,7XX,XXX for a while. Then, this morning I go on to check it and it's suddenly 6,815,XXX. I'm thinking, WTF??? Alexa ranking dropped 1,000,000 in one day? Not only that, last time I bought a gig on fiverr for this site was a week or two ago. Here's my recordings of the alexa rankings: 10/11/11 (2:38 PM) 7,807,765 10/12/11 7,821,098 (7:32 AM) 10/17/11 (9:00 PM) 7,797,944 10/18/11 (6:16 AM) 7,795,308 10/19/11 (2:24 PM) 7,804,757 10/25/11 (6:26 PM) 7,773,385 10/26/11 (9:06 PM) 7,785,716 10/28/11 (7:10 PM) 7,774,388 10/30/11 (9:42 AM) 6,815,743 10/30/11 (9:31 PM) 6,804,348 Can anyone tell me why this happened? What I did right? lol. This is pretty sweet (sure, the ranking isn't that great but it's improvement anyways). And is this normal? Thanks in advance for the support!!
