Well, content is always the king and it is applicable for Alexa ranking as well. Your blogs should have quality and good content in order to increase ranking quickly and rapidly.

Like many website owners I may look for paid advertising in the future and a low Alexa ranking combined with other metrics is a must. In addition, lower ranking website may receive more visitors. My website is 4 + years old education related and only receives 7-10 visitors daily as I did not update for 18 months. This past 9 weeks the Alexa rank has gone from 12.9 million to 383,856 today. Updating and visiting the website daily may have helped as well as using the Alexa toolbar. Good unique content is easy for me to write, although you mention about promotion which I need to start, other than commenting. My experience is that I have visited my website daily, updated with jobs and unique content using the Alexa toolbar, after claiming the website. Alexa widget I do not think looks good, thus I do not use. Latter today I will submit to a few directories, but only a small amount.
Thanks for such valuable information. My website rank has increase from 40 lac to 26 lac in just 8 days. I have gather some more tips on this which can be used to increase Alexa Rank catchupdates.com/tips-to-increase-alexa-rank/
