    I'm not sure how they check but I can always check.
    *Googles for "alexa autosurf"*

    http://www.submitexpress.com/bbs/about1908.html
    It's a forum with a big list of them.
    If you use them you can easily be banned from many CPM programs, adsense, yahoo and the actual google surf so they're not recommended...

    Buy links from webmaster related sites
    Buy sig links from SEO related forums like this one
    Create a Toolbar (using softomate or someother tools), embed alexa ranking plugin in these and submit it to all download sites.,

    wait for few days

    Hehe.

    Cornwall is fine thanks. Weather sucks tho... A few power cuts in the last 3months. Around 10 thunder storms. I am not getting bullied at school any more, but instead i have a bigger problem.... girls asking me out. :$

    Please stop trying to change the subject. Alexa is important to many of us, we are just trying to see if it is still worth bashing or worth using.

    Its worth if you are running a big portal (to satisfy customers by showing stats) or to compare you with your competition, other than that its of no use, I tried too hard to bring our site to the rank of 1200+ from 20000+, Its very tough to do that too targeting indian audience who will not have the alexa toolbar mostlyy
    I dint use any autohit tools., just introduced rss feeds ;)

    There are many tools available to cheat Alexa like Alexasurf, Alexa booster etc. But what's the point in getting such traffic which will not convert ? Do you feel proud by telling such stats? Or are you going to use the fake Alexa for selling text links on your site?

    Did you even read the thread?

    We are looking for proof that Alexa can be manipulated. Can you show evidence that those tools work?

    What is funny is even after my blog post and saying the same thing in this thread, people have continued to prove my point.

    That point was that despite major changes in Alexas ranking system, people continue to blidly post that using tools like "Alexa Booster" easily manipulate the system.

    The funnier trend is every person who professes how easy it is, follows it with "but its a waste of time so why bother".

    Please....bother!

    We have and shown each time that although you may be able to drop it from 450k to 300k for instance, dropping it past 100k is not the easy task it used to be (In fact it doesn't seem possible in a control environment)

    It didnt work..did it? Your sites are ranked in millions.

    Most of the people who say that Alexa is worthless and highly inaccurate probably do not own sites that receive large amount of traffic.

    Alexa rank gets very accurate as the traffic increases. In fact, I think the top 10,000 even top 50,000 is fairly accurate.
