I'm not sure what you mean by "my site rank in India was 260110". In what search engine was this? What does a site rank of "260110" mean? That doesn't correspond to any meaningful measure of rank that I'm aware of.

In any case, rankings change all the time. That's the nature of rankings. Fortunately, rankings don't mean that much all by themselves. Has your traffic from search engines also decreased? Traffic is a much more reliable measure of the "health" of your web pages than rankings.

As said above, your measurement of rankings doesn't make sense.

Could you be referring to your alexa rank maybe?

Alexa rank is based on how many people who have come to your website and have the alexa toolbar installed.

If a website A has 5,000 users to it's website but none of them have the toolbar installed then the website won't rank high. If website B has 500 visitors and all of them have the toolbar installed then website B will rank much higher in alexa than website A.

If you want some free alexa traffic you can always try out http://www.trafficsend.com it seems like a new website but I've been using it on some sites and it seems to work. I think when they get more users it will only get better over time.

because of the measurement based on hits from the Alexa toolbar, niches that are not relevant to the marketing industry tend to be heavily under weighted, and vice versa for marketing related niches.

I don't place much weight on Alexa at all. Google page rank isn't a very reliable indicator either, but at least they attempt to be uniform.
