My boss just called me into his office. He claimed he was talking to a competitor of ours who claimed he was able to tell how many hits a month we were receiving.
This baffled me.. or stats page is password protected, and we do not show any counters on our site..
Is this guy blowing smoke, or is there a service out there that can show how many hits my website gets?
As far as I can tell it's a good estimate, but it's by no means accurate. I had some fun checking my site against some of my competators but other than that I would not give too much creditability to their statements.
If you are concerned, ask the guy what numbers he has, then tell him "Ok, and what about our traffic the day before". Even if he knows how much traffic you get, shoudn't that give him something to worry about not you?
It could also be that he's using the Alexa info and thinking it's actual traffic. Who knows.
