    believe me, Alexa rank is better and PR is useless if you have good Alexa rank. what for you want PR? to derive traffic, don't you think so. You want PR for traffic and If you have traffic (good Alexa rank) then there is no need of PR

    Alexa rank can be cheated, So PR is more important.

    Neither! PR is a joke, and Alexa Web Rank is easily minipulated.

    But most of the times both are not good indicatives.
    For example, PR2 site may get more traffic from Google search than a PR5. Alexa 500K may receive more traffic than Alexa 50K. Alexa and PR is more consistent for bigger values like PR6 and above or Alexa 10K and below.

    In my own opinion High Pr is pretty much important, well i had seen so many
    cases wherein ALexa don't give an inaccurate ranking. just keep the content
    of your site interesting

    Alexa is the value of a site (you can get more advertisers and do a TON of stuff with high alexa rankings), BUT the true value of the site is its full PageRank and each of its pages' PR #s.

    Alexa is a good tool to manipulate but it only says that a lot of people with the alexa toolbar visited your site.

    A new big traffic analyzer is compete.com which really tells the full extent of your site's value.

    If you want to sell links with TLA, the better PR and Alexa you have, the greater price you get.

    compete.com is a joke.
    I don't know where they get there stats from, but they don't come close to the real stats for one of my sites.

    According to compete.com I get 11% search share for "starry starry night" lol, I don't think I have ever had a referral for that search term.
    They also say I get 12,248 visits per month... Analytics tells me I get 252,167.
    One of them has got to be wrong :confused:

    Cheers

    I belive that none of them are important!
    you can have a free xxx tube and you can get XXX XXX traffic a day , or can have a car leasing site , get 10 people a month , and 10 000$ in profit

    I believe Alexa is a good result provider. Just check out the 100,000 Rankings.. It's all correct.

    For me PR is an important thing. I consider PR to be the judging factor for any website or blog as Alexa's Traffic Rank is through limited users of Alexa Toolbar. PR helps the end user, that is, the reader understand the credibility of the site. The more the PR, the more value a site is considered to be having/adding. While Alexa Traffic Rank provides the daily visitors strength and the stats providing increase or decrease in the traffic levels over a period of time.
