    Does website traffic effect alexa ranking in anyway? Some websites get good traffic even though they are not really popular where as some other websites, even after accumulating quality content, doesn't have enough traffic.

    So what do you think guys? Just how much the website traffic effect the ranking of a website?

    It's interesting to note that Alexa traffic can be created by bots or possibly some scam with pop-under or redirected traffic. In that case, using Alexa as a metric for SEO ranking would be massively dishonest. In that case, I think Google and other engines ignore Alexa ranking - as these engines are normally pretty tough - especially Google.
