    Boosting alexa Ranking - Opinion welcome

    Hi,

    This is a general querry. I have a site that is only open to the US as I have blocked other countries. My alexa ranking has increased from ranking 25.6M to 3.6M in a few week and I am now showing a US rank of 412K. I feel that it is not so bad given that I have not placed any google ads.

    However, I would like my ranking to improve and I am considering opening the site to some "main stream countries" even though my service is strictly directed at US/Canadian markets. That is because I hae seen competitive sites (also targeting only the US/Canadian markets) with ranking in the 100K (global) but when you look at the traffic source as given by Alexa some 90% come from India!

    I am thus wondering what is the point for a US business to advertise on a site that is viewed mainly by Indians when they target US residents? Aren't the advertisers aware of that?

    I am also concerned about the increased in the number of attacks on my site by making it available to a larger number of countries! At the moment, I am getting a limited number of attacks that are beeing stopped by the firewall but it is nonetheless annoying!

    I was wondering what you think that I ought to do? How to improved traffic without compromising on security and target markets? Looking forward to your comments.
