Alexa is another search engine and as far as I know Alexa givs the page rank according to the number of pages on the site, while Google considers many factors, like the links.
Alexa gives ranking as per the volume of traffic to your site while Page Rank of Google is counted by back-links...
Alexa is a popular site that keeps track of site access statistics and their rankings.
Page Rank is based on many factors like back links, in links, bounce rate,etc. Only Google knows the exact algorithm for PR.

Alexa measures the traffic and it shows the website popularity while page rank shows the site popularity in Google's view.
ohh i dint know that..thanks for asking.
Google PageRank and Alexa Traffic Rank are two different measures of a website's success. As you know, simply speaking, GPR measures the number of links to the site, while ATR measures the site's traffic.
Nice. Thank you every one for sharing your insights. I had an idea of the difference between the two but few answers really added to my knowledge.
Alexa ranks sites in their popularity, so when they say, for example that Googl.com is number 1, what that means is that the most popular site (i.e. used or visited the most) is Google.com. If you can get your Alexa ranking to under 100,000 then it means that you are the 100,000 most popular website on the internet, which is pretty good (unless you have a big commercial site, like Morgan Stanley or something).
Google use their measure, which is Page Rank or PR, it starts at 0 and goes up to 10. The authority sites will have PR of 6, 7, 8 etc. whilst new sites begin with a 0 when they are first indexed.
Google looks at the quality and quantity of a website's backlinks to determine the PR of the site, so the plan is to get backlinks from high PR sites, that are relevant to your niche. The more backlinks originating from these high PR sites, the higher your PR, and consequently the higher ranking you will gain.
I always use Alexa to measure my page rank, It's really nice,
