    I'm doing research on some niches and try to estimate the traffic a given website receives. I came across websites like similarweb or siteworthtraffic, but my question is how accurate are these websites?

    I use Ahrefs, i can only judge against my own site but it's usually pretty accurate.

    SimilarWeb get actual data from browsers and extensions.
    Ahref &SEMrush are purely organic guestimates (which are sometimes on point).
