    Alexa, which is really a ranking system, ranks you relative to other sites that are also visited by users of the Alexa toolbar. So it is accurate based on the information they track. The problem is they only track users that use the Alexa toolbar.

    In summary Alexa is accurate in comparing your site to other sites in their index based on users that use the Alexa toolbar.
