Can you check another url's stats?

Is it possible to view someone else's stats. I am curious to know how much traffic some of our competitors get. Plus, it is also nice to know the amount of traffic some specific businesses are receiving, so I know if I should move into that field.

Thanks,
Jeremy

I do not know of a way to do this.

By the way, read the Terms of Service: no urls are allowed in these forums :)

You could check out their rank in Alexa - according to an article I read, position 200,000 is worth 500 uniques per day. Unfortunately, they didn't say how much less traffic you'd get at position 300,000, or how much more at position 100,000, so the data's not that worthwhile?

Hitwise may be a step in the right direction

Did you Google their domain for log files or files generated by popular webstats packages? This works more than you might think....

I've been using MetricsMarket recently to get a ROM for other sites.

Is it accurate? Only on a relative basis but I've seen better results using it than Alexa.

I do the obvious... I try

[stats.domain.com...]

and

[domain.com...]

You would be amazed how many people put stats in those two places. :)

I used to use directhit to do this,
check our some of the other traffic based
engines.

Most companies do not want you to know
what their traffic is,
but ALEXA is pretty good too.
