Boosting the Alexa Rank

I wonder what the admin of a local community forum thinks what benefit boosting his forum's Alexa rank could have, as by that he gave evidence to everybody that the rank has been artificially boosted? Does he have business in mind?

Boost your website's Alexa ranking

Good Alexa ranking is a key indicator of a successful website or blog. As a rule of thumb, the better the Alexa ranking, the more business you'll get. Boost up your Alexa ranking by surfing websites with thousands of other Alexa Boostup users.

Funniest is that just the Alexa ranking tells you clearly that it has been manipulated and how, simply by the CLICKSTREAM data, because that "" site has to be accessed by the "Autosurf Booster" again and again for reading on the rotator there which link to "click" next. So there is no other explanation than  that site having been used for manipulating the Alexa ranking and the forum's page views and visitor numbers. The indication of manipulation has been boosted the same!

Free Alexa Auto Rank Booster - Boost alexa ranking

        Boost up your website Alexa ranking for free by using free Alexa Booster.

        Alexa Boostup is compatible with Firefox Browser only.

        Here is how it works:
        User with a Firefox browser and Alexa Toolbar/Plugin signs up and verifies account on Alexa Boostup.
        User logs into Alexa Boostup menu and enters website to boost its rank and enables the website for rotation.
        User can start autosurf by clicking the autosurf link.
        User gets 0.5 surf points after each 40-60 seconds. No need to do anything, just minimize the window and see your Alexa Rank rocketing up.

        Just signup at if you want to increase your Alexa Ranking for Free.

        If you do not want to surf to earn surfing points, then you may purchase surfing points at very cheap rates from the user menu via Paypal.

That must have been a really desperate move. I wonder whether already did insert a loop into their algorithm that excludes these clicks from being counted? Or is the actual Alexa rank of those boosted sites so extremely low?

Quite an interesting business idea: organize people helping each other to deceive, and turn a profit.

That site was on auction at and found a buyer for $1,500 two months ago.

Interesting is its description there:


Good Alexa ranking is a key indicator of a successful website or blog. As a rule of thumb, the better the Alexa ranking, the more business you'll get. is a unique service that offers a boost in Alexa Ranking. Here is how it works:

User wishing to improve website Alexa ranking signup and get 100 surfing points as a signup bonus. Users have Alexa toolbar/plugin and Firefox browser (which is a condition for signup).

User surf other websites to earn more points. For each point user get hit from other alexa toolbar surfer to their own website. Hence for each point user earn by surfing other website the user in return get a hit to website from other users.

Alexa ranking only counts the visitors who have alexa toolbar/plugin installed on the browser. Since each surfer has alexa toolbar/plugin installed, so all the websites rotating get a boost in Alexa Ranking.

The signup and surfing is free. User get 1 point for each website they surf.

The main earning source of this website is surfing point sales. Users who do not wish to surf to earn points, buy the points via Paypal.

You can signup and see the user menu for all other functionalities of the website.

This is not an ordinary autosurf website. In an autosurf website, the website opens in an iframe window, which is not counted as a hit by Alexa toolbar, hence the ranking does not increase using other autosurf website. In Alexaboostup surfing, the websites open in new tabs and close automatically after about 1 minute.

Within 1 week of surfing a major improvement in any website can be seen. Within 1 month, the ranking typically improves from 1 million + to below 150,000.

Typically 30 to 50 surfers are online at any time and has about 70 to 100 daily surfers.

The website comes with an admin panel to manage the users.

The website has an impressive 3 month Alexa ranking of less than 35,000. The website is about 4 months old. The ranking is getting better with time as more and more users are using this service. Its 1 week ranking is about 10,000.

The website is on a shared host and the hosting expenditure is next to nothing.

The website has a great potential as it provides a unique cheap service. As the users grow, the number of users wishing to buy points instead of surfing will also grow. This not only increases Alexa ranking but it is also a great marketing strategy for new websites.

Total verified members are about 750 and each day 5-10 new signups.

Looks like it works in finding people stupid enough to expose themselves as deceivers. Alfie showed us!

Now I wonder whether at they haven't heard about this interfering business, or cannot simply render it useless by adding a check to their algorithm, not to count those visitors being referred from and immediately returning there for the next link to "click" - or did they do that already, now enjoying the deceivers exposing themselves via the CLICKSTREAM reading?
