Alexa Rankings... How to bring it down legitimately

One of my newer sites is still in the high 100,000's. How or what can I do to bring it down to where it supposed to be? Apparently advertising doesn’t seem to help the Alexa rankings.

Any suggestions?

Install the alexa tool bar and go to your site 3 times a day

Write a review about your site

Make another review up about your site

and another

and another

It is a guide for your site but that's where it ends, I banned the alexa spider last year and held my site position for 9 months when everyone else was bouncing up and down with their position.

When I lifted the ban I now move up and down, Its a farce

All you can do is increase traffic. Any ranking above about 8-10k can safely be ignored. Once into that territory, it is pretty hard to influence all (believe, I've studied this indepth, and I can't see a way to influence it other than by traffic.)

Now, up there in the stratosphere of 20k+ and on up rankings, nobody really believes those to be all that accurate. Those sites just aren't getting enough traffic to accurately measure. Like ncw said - install the toolbar and you your self can pull it down to say - oh - 40 to 50k in a few weeks time.
