I am looking for a free online traffic estimation tool. I have seen statshow, WebDetail and Yandaloo, but they are giving quite different results for a given URL.

Can anyone recommend a tool providing more or less accurate estimations of traffic for a given URL? Thanks.

P.S.: Else, can someone check their website against the result provided by those tools and tell whether anyone is close to reality? Thanks.

    Estimate your site traffic or another site's traffic? Yours you can get from your stats. Other sites' you can't get accurate estimations for. – John Conde Apr 26 '12 at 19:49
  • I have updated the question. It is for 'other' sites. Are you saying there is absolutely no valid tool online to provide an estimation of the traffic? – Jérôme Verstrynge Apr 26 '12 at 19:55

    You can get estimations, they'll just be inaccurate. How can you get another's site's traffic levels without access to their stats? – John Conde Apr 26 '12 at 20:03

    The tools I have found so far seem to rely on public data... – Jérôme Verstrynge Apr 26 '12 at 20:11

    I'm not sure what kind of data is public. Site stats are private. After that its information gleaned from spyware or just guesses. – John Conde Apr 26 '12 at 20:18

I don't know how accurate this is, but my spider sense tells me that quantcast is pretty good

I made some research and there seems to be a company doing proper statistical research from about 2 millions real US users: compete.com.

Update

StatShow and Google's AdPlanner are doing a good to great job too. I keep an updated note here.
