I’ve little idea that Alexa crawls websites through its efficient crawlers and bots. But I’m confused how it gathers the different stats that are not directly available publicly. For instance, average number of visitors to the site and average time they spend on the site etc.

    In addition to the Alexa Crawl, Alexa utilizes web usage information, which tells what is being seen on the web. This information comes from the community of Alexa Toolbar users. Each member of the community, in addition to getting a useful tool, is giving back. Simply by using the toolbar each member contributes valuable information about the web, how it is used, what is important and what is not. This information is returned to the community with improved Related Links, Traffic Rankings and more.
