    I found it that my stats with SimilarWeb are SOOOOO far off from Google Analytics, it’s not even funny.

    If it comes down to trusting one of the other, I’d go for GA, wouldn’t you?

    Anyone else has a similar problem?

    It’s a competitive research tool that should be used to understand your competitive
    environment and not your own website. It’s not a question of GA or Similarweb -
    you use both. GA tells you what’s going on in your house, Similar tells you what’s
    happening in the neighborhood.

    But if I know they are wrong about my house, why would I trust them to be right about my competitors’?

    Its about indicators, not absolute numbers. Site analytics tools are for those -GA, Webtrends, Omniture etc. This is more akin to Hitwise, ComScore, and Compete.
