Hey guys,

Just wanted to know, how many absolute unique visitors did you get last month? Also could you post the URL?

(My aim is to use your results to test how accurate Alexa and Compete are.)

Don't bother with Compete or Alexa, their stats are so far out, it's laughable.

Here's the Compete stat for my big forum during the past month:

..and now the truth - Google Analytics (code which I actually have on my site - so way more accurate):

Well, this is depressing. :p

This is traffic from when I started tracking (two months after the forum's launch; about two and a half weeks after the radio launched) up until yesterday. The peak in May was because I was fast in breaking news on John Mayer's new album, so I got a lot of traffic from Twitter. :p ...and yet, it was only 153 visits. :/

Our main site is around 120,000 uniques a month.

You can't go by Alexa or others like Alexa. It is so easy to fool them by using their tool bar. If you install their tool bar and visit your site everyday you will see how quickly it ranks. Which is why alexa is no better the just pulling numbers out of thin air.
