    Try Alexa, Compete, Quantcast or statbrain.com. They should give you all the info you need.

        Isn't getting stats from Alexa dependant on the website you are checking out having Alexa installed on it though or am I mistaken?

          The stats from Alexa are from visitors who have their cookie or toolbar installed on their browser. They also count traffic for websites using their ads (adbrite)

            There is no 100% way to figure out how much traffic a website is receiving, or less you have rights to the server. You can use Alexa as a gauge, and the lower the alexa number means the more traffic that the website is getting. So, comparing a website with an alexa ranking of 100 to that of a website with a ranking of 1000 abstractly means that the website with the ranking of 100 gets a lot more traffic then the website with a ranking of 1000.

    Alexa is a fun way to track traffic, although the numbers really don't make any sense sometimes when you compare it to analytics data.

    Also if you're using Google chrome, check out this really cool plugin... https://chrome.google.com/extensions...gpdceadpfaoclj
