Mission: Increase my Alexa Rank

This blog's current Alexa Rank is 1,169,908. Before the end of this month, I will try to bring it to at least 500,000. I never really paid attention to my Alexa ranking like I did to may Google Page Rank. But I have just learned that a good Aleaxa Rank may give me more income opportunities. Thus, I will now try to increase my Alexa Rank.

Pageviews are the total number of Alexa user URL requests for a site. However, multiple requests for the same URL on the same day by the same user are counted as a single pageview. The site with the highest combination of users and pageviews is ranked #1.

If a site is identified as a personal home page or blog, its traffic ranking will have an asterisk (*) next to it: Personal Page Avg. Traffic Rank: 3,456*. Personal pages are ranked on the same scale as a regular domain, so a personal page ranked 3,456* is the 3,456th most popular page among Alexa users.[Source]
