  How accurate is Alexa?...I read that for them, Traffic is determined by people passing through the ALEXA search engine. What happens to people coming through with Google, Yahoo or Altavista...They don't count ?

I'm not sure if they rank people by using their search engine, but I do know that results are based at least in part on the millions of people who use the Alexa toolbar.  Its basically a statistical sampling of the internet population, and is not totally accurate, like all polls and surveys.

But, its a good bet that any website that ranks in the top 100,000 has plenty of traffic.  The closer the number is to 1, the more accurate it is likely to be.  Anything below 100,000 is not considered accurate (other than the fact that 100,000+ websites are more popular).

So, its not perfect, but it does give a rough estimate of a website's ranking compared to other websites.

Hello

Page Rank can only be improved through building back links.
More back links will result into higher PR, hence more traffic to the website.
