    Whats the best website for traffic estimation these days. I want to see how much traffic a few different websites are getting approximately. Everyone I test with my own websites grossly overestimates the traffic.

    Thanks guys, has anyone tested any of these on their own websites to see how accurate they are? I've tried 2/3 on my low traffic website with very inaccurate results but I think that's just due to lack of data for them due to the low traffic?

    Think about it...how would they guess traffic without something like analytics? It's not possible. All you get is wild guesses based on Alexa, facebook likes and similar signals, but it's just seat of the pants estimates.

    Most traffic estimators do not give accurate results - well, because they are merely just "estimators".

    For large volume traffic site, it should be good enough because going from 1 Million Visitors a month to 1.2 Million Visitors a month don't make much of difference to an outsider. Except you're the site owner that could use your traffic metrics to optimize for conversion then the difference between 1M to 1.2M is significant to you. But again, if you're the site owner, then you'll be using your own traffic numbers, not from the estimators.

    For small volume traffic site, it can go wildly either way because of small data points that the web can collect. What I usually do to "guess" other sites' traffic volume if it's under 100k visitors/month is to take SimilarWeb's estimate divides by 2. After that, I take SiteWorthTraffic's number and come up with a range between SiteWorthTraffic and SimilarWeb/2. That should be enough for me to work with.

    Cheers,
