    I believe that Alexa gets its related links from the ODP directory. Sites in a specific ODP category will show as related to each other in Alexa. You'd have to be listed in ODP to make it into Alexa's related links.

    I think it also gets them from user suggestions.

    You do not have to be listed in ODP to get alexa's related links, but if you ARE listed, they use the results there for related links. If not, Michael is right, user suggestions.
    ( most affiliate sites are not listed in odp, yet have many related links, for example)

    Found this at Trafficology. Don't know if it works or not though.

    You can go out to all your competitor's sites and identify your website as a "Related Link". Here's how:

    Download the Alexa toolbar, and every day, go to your competitors' sites and then click directly over to your site.

    Eventually, Alexa will recognize your site as related to your competitors' sites and your URL will be listed in the Related Links list. I don't know how many people use that Related Links feature, but if you're on enough of your competitors' lists, it should generate some noticeable traffic.
