IMEC Labs Test on Accuracy of Web Traffic Estimation Tools

If you have 5 minutes to contribute to this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZTMNLQJ we'd greatly appreciate it! We're looking to see how accurate tools like Compete, Quantcast, Alexa, SimilarWeb, Google Trends for Websites, etc. are at estimating web traffic.

Very thorough and useful article.  I've been using the Fetch-and-Render part of this on my site audits lately, and have uncovered a ton of instances where Google is not able to see substantial amounts of content (think: Panda above-the-fold).

Personal stories about the death of my mother, drug addiction, and how the things we don't say can break us.

WordPress is like democracy in some ways...

Democracy is the worst form of government.....except for every other form of government.
