    well it depends on your traffic that if you are getting good traffic then website's alexa ranking goes higher automatically.

    If you have some other high traffic rank sites. Use them to link to current site. It may push you site rank up.

    @OP, I don't care about alexa rank. imo experts at SEOchat would be on the same wavelength with me. don't waste your time, just work on keywords' rank/link building and content. you

    (I assumed these should be high search volume) work on these keywords to bring them in Top 5 (from top 10) and top 10 (from page #2). again if these are high search volume keywords. your alexa will get increased without distracting your actual goal.

    No your problem is your looking at a site which has nothing to do with SEO, true traffic, sales or conversion!

    Why do you have a month and a half to reduce it? Google couldn't give a damn about what Alexa say, google has its own analytics site which gives the data of everyone that uses a site, not just those with a pointless toolbar installed!

    If you are offering SEO as services and think you need to build a site Alexa rank in order to do SEO, you really need to come clean with your client and tell them you know nothing about what your doing and are likely to do more harm then good until you learn what SEO really is!

    I understand what you guys said but i can not avoid this alexa issue. This is compulsory for me to reduce in better way. Please suggest me some way to maintain it instead counting the profit of traffic and all that on me. I am already getting good traffic , keywords are ranking on top. Now my third milestone is to reduce alexa...Please consider what i said.

    Well as long as you know that the Alexa rank has nothing at all to do with seo and making it lower will do nothing to help your site in terms of seo, thats ok

    Alexa gets its numbers from those with an Alexa plugin installed so you have two options:
    1. Ask all your visitors to install the Alexa toolbar, but I dont think that would work so well lol
    2. Install a script/bit of code on your site which gives these visitor numbers to Alexa without them having the toolbar installed.

    I dont know the name of it but I know wordpress use to have a plugin for Alexa, so maybe have a search for that and see if it will help?

    Perhaps he's selling domains, Alexa is one of the critical values when someone is buying an already built domain.

    However, if you need to demonstrate the traffic to someone you can also post analytics screenshots (Personally I prefer it on simple alexa).

    Another thing, you can rank for thousands of keywords but if they doesn't have searching volume you won't increase your visits --> lower alexa rating.

    Be sure you're optimizing for valuable keywords.

    then you can look here Alexa Help --> you'll find all you need to know on how alexa rating works, and how to optimize it, written by the alexa team.

    No dude i am not trying to sell domain. Actually i am working for someone and he wants me to reduce Alexa. I don't know why the Alexa is so important for him but yet he want me to do that. Website Alexa is very bad around 4 lac globally.
    I read everything on help page posted by you here but can you tell me anything that can help me to reduce Alexa, some organic methods?

    I have a trick that works. You must have installed Alexa tool bar on your FF? Leave your browser and your website open, and ask all your colleagues to do the same, you will see your Alexa rank drop dramatically after a couple of months.

    I guess now you see how useless and meaningless Alexa rank is? No wonder the only assumption is that you are trying to sell the domain.

    Tell him its not going to help with his SEO, rankings, PR or anything! But if he wants the Alexa rank to become better he will need to get more visitors to the site that Alexa can see.

    There is one way and ONE WAY ONLY to reduce your Alexa rank, and that is to get more traffic to the site which the Alexa tool can see!

    Like I said you have two options for that:
    1. Ask everyone that visits your site to install the Alexa toolbar first - Not going to happen!
    2. Place a script on your site that installs the Alexa tool so it can see your visitors - Google for it.

    Totally Agree with Nathaniel

    2. Place a script on your site that installs the Alexa tool so it can see your visitors - Google for it.
    the second one seems quite invasive... that's why I think you'll better explain this to your client. A good SEO is not only a good optimizer or linkbuilder but also needs to speak and explain everything to its client. Maybe he's convinced of Alexa benefits, you have to understand what is his focus, imagine you reach the goal which is really low alexa but then your client says he's not selling as much as he though. So you really have to define your goals toghether. Speak to him!!

    Hello,

    Let me clear my question once again. This time i am going to explain every single detail about my website...

    Firstly don't tell me Alexa is not important because Alexa is everything for me right now else i will loose my project.

    Currently my 68 keyword ranking on top 10. average visit to my site around 600 to 700 daily. Bounce rate is around 33.16 %

    Now tell me the reason for higher Alexa and how to reduce it..

    Thanks

    What the hell is Alexa?

    Sounds like a cute name for a girl, but beyond that, who cares?
