I'm looking for a tool that will show me the amount of traffic a given website receives over time (i.e. not my own website, but any website I search for). This tool must also have information on organic traffic over time and referral traffic from social media websites over time, the more granularity the better -- month to month minimum, ideally day to day or week to week.

Some tools I've looked at that seem to do some of what I want include ahrefs (https://ahrefs.com/), SEMrush (https://www.semrush.com/dashboard/), and SimilarWeb (https://www.similarweb.com/). However these are all very expensive, and I don't want to pay for something if I'm not sure it meets the three requirements I outlined above. Does anyone have personal experience with any of these or some other tool that does the things I want? To summarize, said tool

  1. must show total traffic, traffic from search engines, and traffic from social media sites for (almost) any website I give it
  2. must show this information over time (at least month-to-month)
  3. would be nice if it showed the information week-to-week or day-to-day

Thanks in advance!

If you are looking for "done for you" list then try rankedy seo or if you want the data on demand mangools.com is good. Both of these wont cost you anywhere near ahrefs or semrush, but both are super useful when it comes to competitor research.

  • Mongools seems decent, but it doesn't provide traffic data for specific web pages within a website. I know I didn't ask for your recommendations to provide that, but are you aware of any tools that provide traffic information on the level of specific web pages within a website? Thanks
