Many webmasters ban their user agent, becuase it is a serious waste of bandwidth...I'm not sure if/how this affects their numbers but it could be a possibility. As far as I know, it is the only spider that goes around on a massive scale with a stock fake referrer. The main reason I put them on my ban list.

While blocking or banning their software might or might not affect your ranking totals with them, I'm only guessing when I say this is one possibility.

Alexa only measures the number of visitors to your site that are using the Alexa toolbar. A site with less traffic that caters more toward people who might use Alexa could concievably have a higher ranking than a very high traffic site who caters to people who have never even heard of Alexa.
