Google Has Beated Yahoo! in Alexa Rank

I had just noticed that Google is now ranked number 1 in Alexa and Yahoo! is on second position. This is the first time in my internet history to see something like this. Is it because of the change of popularity or because of the new Alexa ranking system? Previously Yahoo has able to maintain the rank because of the variety of services. Now Google is doing the same thing and some of it's services are more popular. I've read somewhere that Google has actually being owned by Yahoo therefore no matter who's on top, same people are getting the profit.

I wonder why my pagerank is still not updated. Does Pagerank and Alexa rank use similar type of algorithm on measuring site popularity?

The reliability and credibility of the Alexa Rankings have often been subject to differences. There are opinions that the Alexa ranking is far more credible and true for the sites below 10,0000 than that for the ones above it. Another factor that proves to be a major drawback of the Alexa rankings is that the rankings are governed by the Alexa toolbar and the Alexa toolbar users community. All the browser types are not taken into account as far as the rankings are concerned. As for example the Alexa rankings does not work in Windows Vista even though the latter has a huge user base and is highly popular.
