Hi Everybody

I just launched this new free site where everyone can enter an URL and the site will estimate the number of visitors that the site has, based on different online sources.

The site is called Statbrain.com and I would really like some feedback.

Try entering your own site and see how good Statbrain.com is at guessing the number of visitors that you have.

I've has some problems with Internal Server Errors so tell me if you get one.

Any sort of feedback is very welcome either here or use the forms on the website for any other confidential feedback.

Neat site, and nice rankings, but I question the main statstic visitors per day. I would like to believe that I get 1,000+ visitors a day, but my webhost doesn't show that many visitors in the three months I've been on the web ;). Additionally, it says google only received 100,000 visitors daily.

I entered google @ 437pm est and it came up with a number in the millions... 1,003,018.

There wasn't much to review. It is pretty cut and dry, you enter your site, and viola.

If I needed a utility like that, I would enjoy not having to navigate through an entire site to get to that. So in that respect, the site is nice.

Again, your site is pretty basic. It looks professional.

The only problem I have with the site is the google ads on the right side of the site. They stand out more than anything else on the site. The first thing I saw was the ads. I personally would remove them, or try to make them less obvious...but, it is an advertisement :)

Also, a navigation bar at the bottom of the page would be a good idea.

It doesn't have much to look at. I think your website is worth using, but it's needs more... WOW-factor. Maybe put a sidebar down the left and a few links and I believe this will make your website a little better. Maybe also try to make the google advertisments "Landscape" instead of "Portrait". Having the ads Portrait wastes too much space, remembering "Less is More". Good job though, keep up the good work mate!

Ah good idea, but it just doesn't seem to work i entered a few sites i know the stats of and your results didnt concur. Alas the frontpage needs a bit more eye candy, but yes a good idea worth developing :)

Well all i can say is it's a very nice tool. Nothing to say on design but very nice tool. However I'd like to know how accurate it is. Thing told me my site that isn't launched gets 822 hits a day. That's like whoa...cuz it just has a coming soon page.

Really can u justify the results on this tool. Or it just shows u what you want to see... :lol:

I still have major problems with sites with less than 1000 visitors and also very large sites.

This is being improved every day, I get a lot of visitor reports that help me improve the algorithm.

Yes Yes Yes!!

Finally it happened; I solved the “Internal Server Error” problem.

So what was the solution? Well it is all very simple. The Internal Server Errors was something that I hadn’t experienced locally so I figured out I should try a new hosting company. That I did and the problem was solved.

I guess the message is: choose the right hosting company!

P.S. The domain has been transferred 24 hours ago, but some might still see the old hosting company for a few more hours...

I like the look a lot, actually. I don't think you should add many more graphics... but then again, I have a thing for minimalist pages.

Your about page text could use some work. Your wording just a little funny sounding. Especially the first two sentences.

Personally The Website Would Look Really Hi-Tech & Professional If It Were Completely Flash Based (Cosmedic Wise).

324 visitors a day? I wish. You really have to fix that error for the less popular and really popular websites.

Yes I agree about changing the about section to sound a bit better.

I love the idea, also the link stats. Great possibilities in this site if the concept works- MHO. Any reason why the links list is not significantly longer and more importantly, does not include players such as MSN?


I can't say I find the google ads too disturbing, but personally I would not like more graphics on the site. I don't associate Flash with sites like these. Good luck.

Sorry, forgotten something- I do not see a disclaimer for the use of information on the site and I think it is something you may want to consider.

To Microduma.

There is no particular reason for not using MSN, I think I will add MSN pretty soon.

The algo has been improved and I've added an instant feedback. The instant feedback gives me a good idea about how accurate Statbrain is.

Try again and see if the numbers are getting more accurate ;)

I now score 297 - Well its improved a little. It is really more around 20-30 average. Google has improved too.

I cannot believe google only credits itself with 5300 backlinks. I wouldve thought itd be much more popular. And my site has a higher traffic rank then google with Alexa. Wierd.

Dear Azoundra

I don't get the same numbers as you do for Google, take a look here:
http://www.statbrain.com/www.google.com/

The backlinks are a bit higher than you suggest.
