    Merry Easter?

    I tried out compete.com today but found it conflicting with other resources and pretty much every site I was interested in didn't register with them.


    Does anyone have any suggestions about how I would monitor my competitors?
    I'd say most of their traffic range from why even bother to 100k per month.

    Cheers.

    Hey Chris, Hmmm good question?
    I'll look into that further.
    Not too sure though because a lot of sites I'm looking into don't get much traffic and I think Alexa must have a cut off?

    Yes, I think it does need a certain amount and I've found it hit and miss for sites with low volumes.

    Are the sites .au's you're checking?

    Someone like Experian/Hitwise might have this sort of data, but pretty sure you have to pay for the reports.

    You could also look at what keywords they rank for to get an idea of the volume of organic search traffic. It would be *very* rough though.

    I'll think about it and let you know if I can think of any other ways.
