BLOGGING THOUGHTS

Not that we should be Competing but this is TOO cool.

Sorry I’ve been MIA. The holidays really set me back. I appreciate all the MAC vs. PC comments. I’m sticking it out with my MAC for now and when I have more time I write a post about the problems I’ve been having.

In the meantime I thought I’d pass on a site that may be of some interest to you. I’ve been using Compete.com while researching sites at work. It allows you to research traffic statistics and compare sites with a quick graph. Here’s a little side by side of Roni’s Weigh, GreenLiteBites and SkinnyMinnyMedia. . .

Even cooler then that, Compete has a toolbar for Firefox that automatically tells you the traffic of the site you are currently on like this. . .

Very cool! At least I think so. :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    How accurate have you found those sites to be in regards to your own traffic? I looked at compete.com and quantcast.com and neither one of them seemed to accurately reflect what my SiteMeter and Google Analytics tell me.

    Compared to my stats they are anywhere from 5,000 to 10,000 unique visitors off. Which is to be expected as they are collecting data only from users who opt in. I normally look at Quantcast, Compete and Alexa when researching for work knowing that it’s not an exact science. :)

    Thanks for the reply, Roni! I agree that researching this stuff can be fascinating.

    Do you use analytics? That’s what I usually look at. If not, why do you prefer Alexa?

    I am an analytics girl too but this gives you info on other peoples sites. It may not be perfect but at least you can get an idea on basic traffic for other domains. I’m nosy like that. :)

    Makes sense! I guess I don’t check other people’s numbers too often.
