    Other than Similarweb, what are the tools to spy competitor's traffic volume of visitors?

    You should try Adplexity, it is really great for that kind of information gathering.

    Is not accurate, i have tried both similar web and semrush, seriously idk why ppl still uses semrush, it is not accurate at all.

    Similarweb shows 2-3millions visitors per month which is 100k per day
    Semrush shows 17.5k per day, WTH is this?

    It isn't only a tool for spy traffic. It's a tool to check spy your whole competition. Found new keywords, links, information etc. etc.

    SEMRush is good one. That that can be used by any number of sites. Whether you own a popular personal blog that relies on Adsense, Infolinks or have a corporate website that needs to bring in more traffic, SEMRush can easily work for you.

    I will recommend you to go with SEMRush or Ahrefs.
    Both of them are good :)

    +1 for SEMrush. It allows you to estimate any sites’ accurate traffic and keywords used by your competitors for improving the number of visitors.
