    Alexa ranking never really means much.
    it only counts how many visitors with the alexa toolbar visit your site.

    Also, for me your site appears to be 1million+.. not 10k?

    And finally, to boost your traffic submit it to directories, link building, PPC.. etc :)

    Install the Alexa toolbar on your machine and visit your own site a few times a day. That should be enough to get you around 100k. Get a few buddies to do the same for you and you can do even better. Alexa is very easy to game until you get below 50k or so. Then you need to work even harder at it, get a lot of webmaster traffic (ie. other people who care enough about Alexa rankings to install the toolbar), or flat out have a ton of traffic.

    You also have to keep in mind what industry you are in. For instance a truck and car website that sells and buys will never be in the top 1K or even 10K for that matter. Those sites are more for link sites, search engines, or social networking sites. Take that into account when looking at alexa as well. For instance it's easy to get a dir under 250,000 but tomake a forum on a niche topic would be alot harder so everything is relevant.

    Also you mayb e making muchmore $ on your site at 1 Million than someone running a DIR at 100,000.:D

    put a link on your website that goes to alexa's toolbar installer and explain in some way why you are doing this.

    I wouldn’t emphasise too much on the Alexa Rank but it is an indication however flawed in its inherent collection of data.

    Try concentrate your efforts on SEO to improve your SERPS. That's where the real value is.

    Yes it will make your Alexa better no doubt. You can do this there is no rule or anything stopping you. In fact many webmasters practise this technique.

    Well of course it wont bring you traffic, its merely an indicator of traffic which as we know can be "fixed".

    When selling advertising or even your site you can rest assure potential customers will look at it. OK they might not take it into consideration but they will still look at it.

    In saying that yes its not really worth spending time on.

    Alexa rank purely depend on traffic your site gets. The more traffic you get Alexa rank of site will be that better.

    Just take steps to increase traffic to your site. That improves Alexa Rank

    Check out my article about alexa rankings and how to improve them, boosting from where your at currently is more difficult than a company that is in the 100,000 range but some these practices should help your cause.

    This is a bit off topic, but I've been using the Alexa toolbar for quite some time now. I was using it with IE 6 and was observing an impeovement in the Alexa Rank. But since I've started using IE 7, I've seen no change in the Alexa Ranking.

    I think Alexa toolbar doesnt works with IE 7.

    Has any body else noticed the same?

    honestly, you shouldn't worry about it. Like some of the others have already stated, it's a measure of how much traffic you get from users that have the toolbar installed so not really important. Technical sites will probably have a higher rating because of the userbase. Install it yourself so you at least get that advantage, but don't place too much emphasis on it.

    Significance of Alexa Ranking depends on how you intend to use it. As a measure of how much traffic you get only from users that have the toolbar installed, makes the data of less significance.

    i have read that google does look at alexa ranking for AL Google...and it gives a small point for having a high rank...i can't remember where i read it.
    but i don't even think it's true at least not now anymore...since alexa doesn't use google technology anymore....

    but i always look at alexa rank...i can't surf with out my alexa toolbar.

    get a toolbar and every once in a while surf ur own website and u'll see alexa will bring it up.

    good luck
