    Similarweb looks good! I actually got quite some interesting information there about where i should focus my advertising. Thank you! :D

    Send me a PM with your site and up to 5 competitors, along with the country you are targeting, and I'll send you an Excel file with traffic and keyword data over the past 12 months. I work for SimilarWeb and it will only take a few minutes to create this report for you with the PRO.

    Similarweb is useless, their data is inaccurate, like extremely inaccurate. Once I checked one of my websites, and the stats were not even close to the traffic, # of viewed paged, time on site and so on. They missed the mark big time all across the board.

    Not even close to being angry. I was actually LOL when I was looking at their "stats" :)They're good for entertainment, nothing else.

    @bahus Sorry for coming on a bit aggressively, and I am actually curious what sites you checked, and if you used the free or paid version? Our platform gives better results for medium to large sites, but I find it useful even for smaller sites by looking at leading competitors and the market in general (the Industry Analysis tab on the PRO).

    We have a large data team that works fairly hard to keep improving our stats, if you have any suggestions or complaints, I'd love to hear them here or via PM.

    I go with Bahus comment. Similarweb didn't estimated my site traffic or anything. Of course I don't receive more traffic but not anything
    SEMRush is pretty good for keyword rankings analysis.

    Semrush is the best tool, imho.

    Another that can be useful: compete and quantcast. Take average numbers.

    No problem, I checked 2 of my websites because I know the exact traffic, both of them have around 9,000 visits a month, you guys were showing 30,000 instead. Besides, all the other stats were off too. I was using free version. Unfortunately I won't be providing the urls, either here or via PM for obvious reasons.
