    Alexa rank iis completely based on how much traffic your website or blog gets. It can be paid for traffic or search engine traffic. Well having a high Alexa rank can mean you have a popular site, it can also be easily increased from buying traffic from various places. I have had some of my blogs reach very high Alexa ranks with paid for hits from people. I don't think you should read to much into it. Being an advertiser I would take Alexa rank into consideration, but it would not be the final word when it comes to spending my advertising dollar.

    Alexa rankings are fine for getting an idea of where you are, but I wouldn't rely on it for an accurate assessment for your sites.

    It's based on how many people who have the Alexa toolbar installed, which isn't really a great representation of the general internet population. For instance, those users are more likely to visit websites on Alexa.com, and the further you go down the list at Alexa the less accurate the data is.

    If you have the toolbar installed you can affect the ranking of your site just by visiting it, especially if you're outside the top 1 million sites, but it's certainly better than nothing, and can also be used to check the speed of your sites.

    Alexa ranking is important, so you definitely shouldn’t underestimate its influence on your earnings. Don’t get freaked out if your rating isn’t so hot, because there is more to life on the web than statistics alone. But if you simply don’t care, you need to start caring because you are missing out on potential income by having a poor rank.

    To some extend i too agree with @McFighter that Alexa ranking does not matter match. Its good if you have good ranking on Alexa but if you don't then also it's fine.
    Page Rank is much better tool than Alexa. It is much more precise and reliable than Alexa.

The information is sorted, sifted, anonymized, counted, and computed, until, finally, we get the traffic rankings shown in the Alexa service.

    Alexa ranking is essential, so you definitely must not ignore its effect on your earnings. Never get flipped out if your score is not so hot, because there is more to life on the web than research alone. But if you basically donít health care, you need to begin thoughtful because you are losing out on prospective earnings by having a bad position.

    The traffic rank is based on three months of aggregated historical traffic data from millions of Alexa Toolbar users and data obtained from other, diverse traffic data sources, and is a combined measure of page views and users (reach). As a first step, Alexa computes the reach and number of page views for all sites on the Web on a daily basis. The main Alexa traffic rank is based on a value derived from these two quantities averaged over time (so that the rank of a site reflects both the number of users who visit that site as well as the number of pages on the site viewed by those users). The three-month change is determined by comparing the site's current rank with its rank from three months ago. For example, on July 1, the three-month change would show the difference between the rank based on traffic during the first quarter of the year and the rank based on traffic during the second quarter.

    Alexa ranking is search traffic generated on the account of the data provided by users in Alexa’s global data panel over a rolling time span of 3 months. Traffic Ranks are updated daily. With Alexa, the website ranking is based on a combined measure of unique visitors and their page views. It briefs you about the user behavior on the website relative to all other sites, which makes it a great KPI (Key Performance Indicator) for benchmarking and competitive analysis.
