AdClarity

AdClarity is an amazing tool when you need to get some webpage from another location. It has lots of different location around the world, well organised by continent, which allow you (according your subscription) emulate easily each one of your desired hits (like hit an American only website in Europe, or vice-versa, etc). For a non-professional users, allows you to do some "tricky" actions, like clean cookies or set a different device user-agent to emulate an mobile device, with simple actions (one or two clicks).Avoid using it to stream video when you pay by download size. Also avoid have multiple tabs/windows on your web browser when you are using this tool, it will refresh all of them.

Hitwise

Hitwise is best suited for looking at overall traffic behavior or a site or industry. It will help you quickly identify the where and the what when it comes to consumer behavior (i.e. what are they doing before they visit your site, where are they going after). It tells you a lot about who they are and what sparks the initial trigger.Where it isn't super appropriate is when you need to look at a specific term like "are eggs healthy" and you can't identify where that specific term falls in the overall "egg" searches.

Cons

  • When used in Chrome, it affect all tabs and reload it, which increases data downloaded with tool on, and will impact on costs.
  • Some features are useless to developers, like clean cookies and set device type, they should have different versions for professionals and regular users.
