PageRank of a website varies from 0 to 10. It depends on the backlinks of a website. Therefore, if you want to have high PageRank then get more backlinks for your website. Higher the PageRank. most reputed is your site.
AlexaRank of a website depends on the web traffic on a website. It means, if your website has more visitors then the Alexa rank of your website will be low.

I am not agree.

Page rank:1-10(the number is bigger,the site is more important)-the bigger,the better.

Alex rank:millions-1(the number is smaller,the site is more important,more popular.)-the smaller,the better.

Page rank:A stander setted by Google for the important level of a website.

Alex rank:I only know it is not Google's.

In fact,you could install the page rank and alex rank in your web browser.

PageRank is a Google algorithm to calculate SERP of a website and Alexa is to calculate webtraffic of a website. However i just read on other thread that Google PageRank isn't used and updated anymore by Google; is that true?

PageRank and AlexaRank: the secrets on internet ranking

When you arrive on the web development field, everyone around you talks about PageRank and AlexaRank and how important they are for your website's growth. But what are really those ranking, how do they work and most important are they really worth tracking?

 JulienRio.com: PageRank and AlexaRank: the secrets on internet ranking

When you have a website, you have several parameters to track. The most obvious one might be your traffic details: how many visits, visitors, pages are counted per day.

Also, you usually track information such as the bouncing rate (percentage of people leaving your website after visiting a single page), the time spent per page, the location and language of your visitors, the device / browser they use, the sites linking to yours, etc.

All those parameters are essential and you should track them. But there are two other components that everyone will tell you to track. The holy Grails of web development are called AlexaRank and PageRank.

 

What is the AlexaRank
The AlexaRank is an online ranking provided by the international website "Alexa".

Alexa tracks the top 10 million websites worldwide and gives them a ranking from 1 (the most popular website worldwide) to 10.000.000 (the last website of the ranking). It also gives a "local" ranking to your website for you to estimate the value of your page compared to your local competitor.

How it works

To rank the websites, Alexa uses the information provided by its Alexa toolbar. The concept is simple: if you have the Alexa toolbar installed on your browser, it will record data about all pages and websites you visit. This data is then used to estimate by extrapolation the traffic each website is getting per month. Based on this monthly traffic estimation, Alexa gives a specific rank to those recorded websites.

How often is it updated

Alexa is constantly updated but you might actually see your ranking change on a daily basis.

JulienRio.com: PageRank and AlexaRank: the secrets on internet ranking

What is the PageRank
PageRank is a website's popularity indicator provided by Google.

As the firm keeps secret its methods of analysis, no one could tell for sure how important is the PageRank in the indexing of your website on Google. Nevertheless, if in the early days of the web the PageRank was obviously an essential part of a website's indexing, nowadays, especially since the last Panda update, PageRank became more of an indicator without much influence.

A website's PageRank goes from 0 to 10 (0 indicating that the website isn't popular on the web as 80% of the online pages and 10 being the highest possible level of popularity).

JulienRio.com: PageRank and AlexaRank: the secrets on internet ranking

How it works

The PageRank of your page is calculated based on many factors. The most important of them might be your linking: how many websites actually link to your page. But the number of links isn't the only element: the quality of those links, their respective anchors, the PageRank of the page they are built on, the placement of the link, all those aspects count also. For example, using tools that build thousands of links on low quality websites that point to your page might harm your PageRank instead of strengthening it. (I detailed this example in an earlier article named "How to become rich within 24 hours with your page first on Google ? The secret marketing" that I invite you to read if you have interest in this topic)

Other factors are considered in the establishment of your PageRank such as the quality of your page, the content you provide, the traffic you drag, etc. How all those elements influence the final score is kept secret and Google isn't so keen to share its formula.

How often is it updated

If you are looking for quick improvements, you might be very disappointed with your PageRank's evolution! Google does not update individuals' PageRanks very often: it might actually take up to 6 months between two updates. Therefore, there is no need for you to track on a daily basis the evolution of your PageRank: your efforts in terms of linking or SEO might take several months before showing results.

PageRank and Alexa Rank are two values ‌‌assigned to pages and websites to describe a certain characteristic. The PageRank was invented by Google. It is often called a “Page Rank”, but that is incorrect. The rank was actually invented by a man called Mr. “Page”. The ranking system was named after him, and just so happens to be coincidentally relevant to the system. Suffice it to say that the “Page” in PageRank is not referring to a web page.

The Google PageRank assigns a value to the quality and quantity of links. It looks upon the links as little votes, and therefore assigns a rank accordingly. Alexa ranks sites based on an estimate of the traffic you will receive. The estimate is done according to a number of factors. PageRank may refer to a page individually, while the Alexa rank is able to refer to an entire site.

What is the difference between Google PR and Alexa Ranking?


Many people look at Google and Alexa metrics as if they were the bounty of god. They are not actually a judge of how good your website is. They are not even a measure of how popular your website is. They are two systems for measuring how search engine friendly a website is. People mistake this with popularity because websites with higher rankings are often ones that have many links pointing towards them, and are mentioned more online in forums and on social media.

 

Defining these two ranks is easy

Well page rank is more important than Alexa rank, as Page Rank is given by Google the search engine giant on the basis of page content, backlinks and other phenomenon

while alexa ranking mostly concern with the site traffic.
