I was doing this shit monthly on notabug, will continue here if you don't mind. The sources are SimilarWeb reports like this one for saidit:

Here is the last notabug report: (2.45K-10.5K visits)

u/magnora7 it would be cool if we could see official numbers

It's probably hard to compare directly, Similarweb's "visits" are not "views", it's user sessions defined in some specific way:

Similarweb calculates a visit (session) for a website when a visitor accesses one or more pages. Subsequent page views are included in the same visit until the user is inactive for more than 30 minutes. If a user becomes active again after 30 minutes, that counts as a new visit. A new session will also start at midnight.

These are estimations from their limited data anyway (browser extensions which sell browsing history, DNS data from internet providers and so on), could be wrong 2x-3x in both directions (underestimated/overestimated). Just it's fun to compare these stats over months :)

Agreed on all points but often (usually?) has a monthly stats post from the site itself. Surely the data are easy to obtain for site admins or ownership.
