How reliable are Gs AdPlanner Stats compared to Alexa Ranking? (BHW = 50k uniques/day)

    Hey everyone,

    I thought about including some traffic numbers in a tool I've been working on for some time.

    Since Alexa ranks are very misleading, especially for sites in the IM field and a Alexa Rank of, lets say 1000, could be anything between 30k-300k uniques daily ... how far off are the traffic estimates of Googles DoubleClick Ad Planner these days? For example:
    Google estimates BHW to have like 50k uniques per day. <- click :D

    Since only sites with like 1k+ uniques/daily are shown I have only very few sites where I know the actual traffic numbers ... whats your experience? How far off do you think the numbers are?

    Thanks :thumb:
