Is there a way to see unique visitor hits on other websites?

I am interested in seeing the number of visits on other sites. Is there a website that has this function for free?

Hi tgreicius welcome to webmasterworld,

The simple answer to your question is no. Having said that some academic/non profit sites make their logs openly available, but as a general rule if you are looking to view competitors stats then you are out of luck.

The alexa [alexa.com] service has some of the features you are looking for but to be honest is not an accurate measure. It is essential that you read the privacy policy before you commit to installing the toolbar and view their track record, start here [privacy.com].

To get a peek at some Alexa info without installing any toolbars, use metaeureka [metaeureka.com]. On the SERP, there are two features that might be of interest, 'Site info' and 'Alexa info.' As NFFC mentioned, this shouldn't be considered particularly accurate, but it might help confirm data gathered by other means.

and if you have scripting capability, look at the alexa urls on that link rc mentioned. You can mine Alexa the same way they mine you ;-)

That was an interesting way to spend half an hour, good for the ego :)

My site is a directory and the level of traffic it recieves would possibly be of interest to potential customers.

Would it be considered bad form or naff to use the alexa stats to declare yourself as the most popular website in your field ?
