Has anyone else come across UrlTrends yet?
It's currently very US skewed in the sites that it has tracked, and really only covers the larger sites if you want to see trends, but it is quite an interesting little aggregation of various free indicators as to a site's performance over time.
It tracks trends in things like PageRank, Alexa Ranking, DMOZ listing, Link Popularity, Ranking for top keywords etc.
So here's an example report for bbc.co.uk

Looks like a really good find.
Have registered for the free version for now to see what the potential is - does look comprehensive though and a time saver which is always good! Really like the output features into Excel and PDF formats and the ability to analyse multiple companies in one report. You can also setup URLs in the My URLtrends section and it will monitor them and send emailed reports from what I could tell.
Has anyone subscribed to the paid API feeds as I would be very interested to know what they enable you to get out of the system?
I don't think the Reverse Keyword Lookup tool is able to deliver what it claims but the trend comparison and individual site analysis do seem excellent.
Will let you know how I get on with it.
