For checking competitor website traffic, I would recommend you to use http://www.1pagerank.com/ and for checking monthly searches you can opt for Google Keyword Planner.

1pagerank.com gives totally wrong traffic for my site. That means that for competitors the traffic is wrong as well. Try semrush. It gives better picture.

Hi,

There are four steps to find the traffic of your competitor websites,

1. install the hit counter,
2. active in google analytics ,
3. frequently check the alexa ,
4. through online there are number of tools to find website traffic count.

So, please go through those and create an accounts on them.

Traffic estimator is also one of the tool. :) :) :)

Hemanth malli, 1-2 do not give you competitors traffic. Only your own one. As for Alexa - well, it doesn't show exact picture, especially for low traffic niche.

So we're b ack to original question. What is the best on-line tool to check competitor's traffic..?

To check monthly searches of a competitor website - Simply visit their site check their Meta(Cntrl+U) and see what keywords they are using. Put them in Google Keyword planner and see the results.

But if you want to check the traffic then there is no tool that may give you the exact result or any result. But you can just get an Idea that if a websites Alexa is good enough then there is a possibility that traffic is decent.

Not a bad idea but it still doesn't give you the searches that bring visitors to your competitor site. And  what about those (like my competitors) who doesn't bother with META-tags at all?!?

No one can give you the exact idea of searches or visitors of competitor, its just an idea that every tool or manual action gives. As Meta tags are important but still there are websites that are doing well without them also. one can use SEMrush and similar tools to know everything about the website either its yours or the competitor. You will get to know everything from scratch.

I prefer ahref tool and 1pagearank. They bid us a most accurate results along with entire details such as source of backlinks and all.
