Compete Compare your web site popularity with your competitors

Im big into my search engine optimisation and affiliate schemes at the minute. So this caught my eye, find out how your competitors are doing, that way you can see if you can be better than the joneses. Pop in a domain name - or a set - and get a traffic graph showing off the site's visitors, pageviews per visit and average stay duration. The Compete folks say they use multiple data sources for their numbers, including web surfing stats gathered from their browser toolbar as well as ISP's and opt-in panels - unlike Alexa, which only depends on its toolbar stats (the basis for a lot of Alexa criticism.) Hard to say whether Compete's numbers are more accurate than Alexa's, but it's nice to see an alternate offering. Read more over at Lifehacker
