    Hey all Whats the best tool for judging website traffic
    on a monthly basis.

    Alexa and quantcasts charts are way to hard to read for this,
    and I am sure there is who knows a tool that will give you the approx.
    monthly searches, the more accurate the better.

    Thanks!

    correct me if I am wrong but ever one of those tools will give you monthly / daily traffic estimations on keywords, and if you wanted to know a specific urls estimated daily traffic Spyfu will do that for you for free.

    I don't think your going to find a better tool than the 2 sites you mentioned. Not saying there great but traffic estimations from different sites are usually way off.

    try semrush.com it gives very precise data with what keyword are sending traffic. I have kinda verified most of their data and it seems reasonable. Also you only get like 10 tries a day and limited scope.

    There is no 100% way to check by these sites listed above or any other. You have to take the info that you get from those sites as a guide.

    Just like keyword searched there is no tool that is 100% right

    Any of these tools is not really reliable, maybe only for really big sites.

    Its funny how yall bash the website that I found, then suggest compete.

    When in fact, if you look, the website that I suggested uses compete
    alexa and a good number of other traffic estimators for maximum efficiency

    I think,search engine ranking software is the best way for increase or judging website traffic.
