    Hi there, The Alexa rank also depends on the time the users spend on the site, and also the page views by the visitors

    that is strange, because the first page have a average of 8.9 minutes and 6 pages per user, and the second only 2.2 mnutes and 2 pages

    It depends on how many of your visitors had Alexa toolbar installed on their browser. Alexa ranking should only be used to compare traffic of sites belonging to similar category.
    For example, webmaster related sites (hosting sites, directories, webmaster forums etc) will have larger percentage of their visitors with Alexa toolbar. So they tend to have better ranking compared to other sites with similar traffic.

    alexa rank depends on people who have the alexa toolbar. How else could alexa count your rank on visitors unless you have some script or application installed on server?

    This even depends upon the type of users visiting your sites. If blogers and webmasters visit your site then it is quite likely that they have alexa toolbar on their browser.
