I'm looking to break into a new market, and am investigating all the competition. One aspect of this is estimating the traffic each site is getting, and I'm wondering what the best tool for the job is.
Hitwise seems popular, but very US-centric from what I can tell.
Alexa relies on the toolbar being installed, so I'm not convinced it's a representative sample to then draw conclusions from.

I agree with gogame on compete -- easy to get traffic numbers. They are inconsistent from some other sites. If you want to audit, you can also use trafficestimate.com -- but this may be less reliable. If you do searches on "website traffic", you may be able to find more.
