  1. I’ve tried it but it’s merely compilation of external info. Inaccurate compilation by the way, it misses some stuff it claims to display like number of links in social media and such.

  2. Hi Rarst, the site takes most of the information from Alexa which is not that reliable. Unfortunately for us, most advertisers base heavily on Alexa for traffic information about a website. Anyway, it’s still great for getting external information about a website without browsing different pages and sites that will give you the same info.

  3. @Roger: All it provides is external information. Maybe it’s quite alarming to know that anybody can gather that much information in just a short period of time but it is legitimate and all the information is provided by the owner and third party stat sites. 🙂

  4. Wow, this is an amazing tool, it’s totally blown my mind the amount of information available that one can view about a particular site!
    Thanks so much for letting us know about this site Louie, really appreciate it 🙂

  5. Mozilla: Don’t worry about the low traffic as long as it’s quality traffic, your site is doing great. 🙂

    Marie: Digital footprints of our sites are available everywhere. Like Roger said, it’s pretty scary on how much information they are gathering from us but it can be very useful for advertisers who are interested in a website.
