It seems far to many people are fixed on comscore stats. Distributed via filesharing networks, and adware those who accidently install it or don't read the fine print are the not regular net users. It seems though distribution has changed a lot in the last 2 years…
Alexa users are basically tech people, to get a reach rank of 700 or so in alexa you need a grand total of 200 toolbar users a day.
1 comscore user on your site represents 300 or so uniques on their system.
So the first question is how can I inflate my rank to the extreme?
Send users to these comscore distribution points (Just a sample) http://www.relevantknowledge.com http://www.opinionsquare.com/Home.aspx, http://www.marketscore.com Note that most spyware companies flag all incarnations of comscore as spyware. Some major banks even block any user with comscore installed from accessing their sites.
How do you get a super inflated alexa rank like digg, digitalpoint etc? Just send the users to the alexa toolbar download page.
I am the first major site owner to ever use Counter Intelligence, and in competitive markets I believe it is a MUST. To stop alexa simply don't allow any user with "alexa" in the useragent visit your site or signup. You can block most other tracking systems but i'll let you figure out how to do that🙂
In highly competitive markets, sites like comscore can sell all your conversion ratios, your dailly transaction/signup figures etc. Because they track everything they know everything about you. If you are a new competitor entering the market you are severly handicapped as everything you do is basically free R&D for major sites.
Which traffic measuring system is the most accurate and hardest to fake?
That would be hitwise.com, every night they get logs sent to them from ISPs that track over 20 million internet users. Ie your ISP gives them their dially traffic log of all users. The only way to mess with their rankings is to buy up a ton of traffic on ISP's that feed them data.
If counter intelligence or competitive intelligence isn't on your mind, you can bet its on your competitors.
