    I'm not sure if Alexa is suited for this.

    Looking for a place where I could determine which sites are growing the fastest. Specifically Social Media sites.

    The thinking is a site that is well established is going to have a lot more competition and automation detection. If you picked up a few years ago that reddit was growing fast you could probably make a ton of $ doing things that are impossible now. Mainly because so many other people already did it.

    Moz, Ahrefs, and I think even Majestic run their own metrics gauging sites. I'm not sure anybody uses Alexa's exact method of calculation, but that is probably propitiatory I'd imagine.

    I took a quick look at all of them. I have a question. How do these guys determine the amount of traffic?

    With Alexa and google I know they use their toolbars. And just figure out the %s that way.

    That is really hard to say. But I know that from sites I own that I've checked on there that it is fairly accurate. At least in my cases. I doubt it is fool proof though, so its only a measuring stick for apples to apples. I wouldn't start mixing data.
