well its ranked 16th under the games category. its not that surprising that ng isn't that high up since alot of other sites are enourmous corporations with plenty of money to spend on advertising as well as servers and bandwidth. relatively ng is the little guy.
Right. Not only that, but a lot of the sites that are high up on the list are sites like Yahoo!, Google, and even adservers that are hit by many smaller ranking sites.
The thing to keep in mind with Alexa is that they monitor site traffic based upon users who have some software from Alexa installed on their machines which tracks the users' movements. So it's only an indication, the stats shouldn't be taken as gospel.
There are other sites that also monitor site traffic. I forget exactly which, but they tend to expect a fee, if I remember correctly.
