Ok, now the question is what is alexa?
Alexa is an amazon.com website. It provides a search engine, and a toolbar. Alexa helps every website to get a traffic rank. This rank gives an idea of the traffic a perticular website has. If the rank is about 1 lakh then people estamate the website's traffic to be more than 1000 unique visits a day. So, this helps your website to get some respect in terms of traffic. People might think your website's reputation is higher with better traffic ranks.
How dose alexa ranks website? From where the data of traffic is comming?
The answer is simple, the alexa toolbar. And this is the way to increase your traffic. If you install the alexa toolbar, and then browse through your website, and open every page of you website then you can manage a better alexa rank. Just install the toolbar, and then simply in your browser i.e. internet explorer as alexa don't support any other browers, open your website. you don't have to use the toolbar, browse as you have been browsing for all these days. The toolbar will send the data itself.

It is a nice way, so what is the problem?
The problem is that the alexa toolbar has many adwares. And these adwares and spywares are a reason why alexa toolbar is difficult to use. No one like these spywares and your system and internet's speed will be slowed by this.
Then what is the solution?
Well, there is a solution all right. Just go to any internet cafe or any public computer, install the alexa toolbar and open your website. This is the best way. And since it is from different ip address, you will get more higher ranks, each time you visit a different public computer. More over if you all your website to the favorites and make that your home page, in any public computer installed with alexa toolbar, the people who will come after you, will also give your website a better alexa rank.
