Open Site Assessment Tools May 16, 2008

Alexa, Quantcast, Compete are the first level popular site assessment tools for the websites. A decade back there was another set of tools which was available,  SiteInspector, WebsiteGarage were the front runners. Many of us were disappointed when MSN shut down SiteInspector, it was a very useful site and fast too (I am talking about late 90s). 

I am told SiteInspector would have a second life soon, and that too as an Indian Owned Business, sounds strange. How do I know it and why do I know it, and why I am mentioning it here?

On Alexa, Alexa recently made dramatic changes to their publicly available data, it suddenly reduced it.  Quantcast decided to do just the opposite, the Geo option recently introduced brings IP base data for most of the sites. Compete also added Velocity feature to bring some spice to the whole thing.

more to come…
