    Alexa guess how many people might have gone to your site based upon the small percentage of people who have the toolbar installed; GA tracks actual visitors.

    Alexa records traffic only by the visitors who have the alexa toolbar installed.

    alexa rankings are a great way for you visitors to get an insight on your site's traffic and popularity. Analytics is for you to analyse your traffice and many more great tools with custom filtering and goal settings.

    The traffic stats provided by the Alexa is inflated most of the times. I always trust google analytics which gives accurate traffic statistics.

    Using Google Analytics is a much better way of determining actual stats, as opposed to Alexa rank which is skewed depending on who has installed their toolbar.

    google analytics and alexa are both using the different technologies to track the record of webpage or website... thats why the difference will be always there in both of the result.

    I'm having a hard time believing the accuracy of Alexa. On the other hand, Google is too unpredictable. Now that there is a new algo, things are getting more complicated. But I still prefer the reliability of Google over Alexa.
