I know from myself people are obsessed with traffic, statistics, looking at other sites – tracking their stats and so on.
And if there is enough demand, of course there are sites to satisfy You.
I wanted to put those sites and tools in one list together, because at least for me this field was really unclear – I didn’t know what means Google Pagerank, Alexa, Compete, Technorati rankings and I could continue so on.
I also use several Fire Fox and Chrome add-ons to track website traffic, so I don’t have to type and go to statistic related webpage to get the results.
Results actually came to me in this way, allowing me comfortably browse, explore and compare sites I visit.
Now I am so used to live with these toolbars, I can’t imagine my browsing life without them. I will start with actual Fire Fox plugins (just google same for Chrome) I use and later in order to the most popular and know traffic tracking sites.
And just a thought – can You imagine how useful in marketing is information about Your competitors?? This article is all about tracking your websites traffic and how to increase it.
I use Compete always together with Alexa, however in compete my site is ranked much higher, so I think Alexa rating is more objective.I don’t know, I am just critical against myself.
And they offer also toolbar, it is second add-on I use regularly, it’s official site toolbar, tracking also average people count visiting site.
Maybe this information is not so precise, but when I compare those stats with my site, I can get actual overview, how many people are visiting other sites too – pretty great.
There are many other features in this toolbar however, but I am not using them in my workflow however, but You can do Your own research, maybe some feature is useful for You.3.
