    Alexa/ has some pretty new traffic graphs, including reach and page views, which in my view is more meaningful than the old "traffic rank" one.

    As ever, there's a fairly wide margin of error, but the more popular a site, the more accurate the figures. Probably more useful for tracking things like merchants and services than for looking at your own site.

    I've always found Alexa to be fun and fairly informative... *IF* you know how to interpret the data properly.

    (Uh-oh, this will probably turn into the usual slanging match about Alexa stats. Oh well.)

    Well, there are ways and means of cheating the figures if you want, but sustaining it is more difficult. If you look at the very long term Alexa stats (e.g. two years) and combine it with a reasonably high volume site, then they start to get meaningful. You can even spot seasonal trends (e.g. Christmas). Have a look at 123greetings.com
