    Well you can try also quantcast but there stuff is less accurate in my opinion unless they got account there and installed their tracking system.

    AFAIK, you will not be able to accurately tell how much traffic a site is getting without access to their stats.

    openfire hit it on the head. most of these traffic places are basicly looking at such things as backlinks and other isp open logs to taking a rough estimate. Without access to his raw server logs or stats tool, you will not get an accurate read.

    A better plan to improve you site would be to see what keywords hes working with and see where his backlink are coming from.

    Not true:

    Compete uses ISP logs and other information and triangulate that to calculate traffic ranking which make it a lot harder to fake. I find that using compete and alexa provides a highly representative rank. *For sites based in the USA at least.
