I couldn’t live without this useful plugin, which tracks Alexa, Compete ranking and Google Live Page Rank.If You didn’t know Alexa and Compete sites are the most popular and trustworthy sites letting You track statistic about sites worldwide, compare them and so on.And who aren’t heard about popular Google ranking system, however if You don’t, check out Google official blog to find out more.And yes, Alexa and Compete has it’s own Top and rating system, so that’s the number meaning, maybe I was silly, but I didn’t realize that at first, so I am pointing it out for You too. Compete Toolbar + Compete Site This site is very similar to Alexa, offering alternative or even better some really good site to compare ratings so You have more objective information.I use Compete always together with Alexa, however in compete my site is ranked much higher, so I think Alexa rating is more objective.I don’t know, I am just critical against myself.
And they offer also toolbar, it is second add-on I use regularly, it’s official site toolbar, tracking also average people count visiting site.Maybe this information is not so precise, but when I compare those stats with my site, I can get actual overview, how many people are visiting other sites too – pretty great.There are many other features in this toolbar however, but I am not using them in my workflow however, but You can do Your own research, maybe some feature is useful for You.3.I know from myself people are obsessed with traffic, statistics, looking at other sites – tracking their stats and so on.And if there is enough demand, of course there are sites to satisfy You.I wanted to put those sites and tools in one list together, because at least for me this field was really unclear – I didn’t know what means Google Pagerank, Alexa, Compete, Technorati rankings and I could continue so on.
