    I can say, it belong to many factors, but still, for a very quick look you can think the alexa rank base on the number of traffic of a website in 3 months, the google rank base on the website trust and quality and pagerank index only 2 or 3 times/year but alexa rank index daily.

    Let 's get an example about http://magentoexpertforum.com

    At a moment:

    Alexa rank: 104k
    Google pagerank: N/A

    The reason why it have no google pagerank because the domain old still too young even though the traffic is good. The last pagerank index of Google pagerank is Feb 2013 and it still doesn't index again until now. But with some SEO tools for pagerank look ahread, you can easy realize page rank for next index of this is ~4

    Hope it help you in the complicated numbers.

    Visual (toolbar) PR has only little to do with its real value as it has been updated more than 9 months ago.

    Actually both are important. If your sites current PR is 1 but it have many quality back links, quality content, good internal link structure, it is able to increase PR on next PR update. While alexa rank is update daily. Alexa rank is depend on your daily visitor traffic and quality content.

    Both Google PR and Alexa Rank have their pros and cons, so in the end of the day, it depends on what exactly do you need.

    The problem with Alexa is the that it doesn’t automatically gather the necessary statistics. Instead, it relies on something called “Alexa Toolbar”, meaning that the traffic measurements consider only people who have the toolbar installed. This makes it unreliable in some experts eyes, because not all people who use the global Web may even know that such a toolbar exists.

    As for Google PageRank, it's not also 100% reliable. First, Google has been quite reluctant to update it on a regular basis. The last update took place on 5/6 December 2013 - so almost a year passed since that point. So it's hard to say what is a website real PR is at the present moment.

    So, as you see, neither Google PR nor Alexa Rank is a 100% reliable metric. One shows you how much people appreciate your site and the other one shows you how many people (with the toolbar) visit it.

    FYI Google officially discarded "Google Page Rank" from it's list and said "It's never going to update ever in future". So, END OF PAGE RANK ERA. Coming to Alexa rank, I would say it's pretty biased ranking feature, Get bunch of traffic by anywhere go up in Alexa meter. Useless metrics!!!

    Alexa only indicates the number of quality backlinks. It increases with the number of quality backlinks received by the website. It's true that nowadays Alexa is getting more importance than PR. PR is just a value to indicate importance of your website.

    Yes, now that Google Page Rank is dead, there will likely be a scattering of different metrics that are used to "grade" websites. I know alot of people are referring to MOZ rankings right now but it will be interesting to see if another "standard" rises up.

    Yes Google Page rank and Alexa Page rank both are important factors in SEO but PR is more important.
