Your Alexa ratings are produced by people having the Alexa toolbar installed then visiting your site. As it's mostly webmasters who install that toolbar, it's not an accurate reflection on how well your website is ranking in search engines.

I'm not sure what you mean by Google Rating? How well you're doing in Google's listings is evidenced by how high you list for your chosen/targetted keywords.

In all honesty I'd recommend ignoring this emails - in short, these are usually from crap websites, looking to leech off from better websites.

In terms of Google Rankings, etc - there's no single metric that determines how well your site is doing in Google, but usually the volume of lead generating traffic is often one of the better metrics.

Hope that helps.

Alexa ranking is of little use because it only uses data from other Alexa users. If you want to accurately track your results then use Google Analytics. It will give a breakdown of your traffic sources and also give a geographical breakdown. It is by far the best tool on the web.

There is an easy answer to this.

Google rates you differently for each search term you enter into its search bar.

If your site is about black and white pigs, it is unlikely that google wil rate your site highly for the search term ""furry dogs.

So the answer is

If you rank 1 for that search term, you have a highest rating for that search term.

For every position you rank below this you rate a bit less.
