    You don't want to know.

    Really, you don't. It is utterly irrelevant

    Alexa ranking: (1) the closest most site owners will ever get to having between 7-9 digits to their name; (2) a pointless number that bears no significant impact on actual search engine rank positions.

    Ignore it. It measures stats based on those who have the Alexa toolbar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexa_Internet). Since I suspect most don't have this, it's like asking five people on the streets of Brooklyn about farming and saying that represents America's view of agriculture.
    God knows where you are, but Google may not. SEO is the key that unlocks search engine success (and a plugin isn't enough).

    But is it just coincidence that most of the competitors I check out for the keywords I am competing for have a relatively higher Alexa ranking? So how does Alexa rank the websites?

    JR explained that - how they rank. They depend on people having the Alexa toolbar installed. Which is/was reasonably popular in E.Asia, but not elsewhere. Skewed data.
