I was wondering wether there is something that helps us to find out from where any site gets its traffic ?. I mean any site.....
egs....suppose you have a competitor and he is nowhere on the engines and directories..at least not seen on main pages....can you figure out where traffic is diverted to him from ?
Also, some servers even openly publish their statistics (especially .edu sites). This may not be relevant to a .com but it can give you good information about general trends across websites and how other people get a hold of traffic.
Check out Brett's Viral Marketing [webmasterworld.com] thread and a little deduction can go a long way "i guess" ;)
Check out what your competitor is doing as mentioned above IMO...(google aint bad at finding all those links (alongside something like ATW).
Reminds me of SPECTRE and James Bond - sitting at command central and spying on every move the opposition makes. I s'pose one could have worse hobbies.
Good free options - previous - is probably see if they publish their log files or do a little Google-checking.
