Alexa, owned by Amazon, is a service which attempts to guestimate / extrapolate how much traffic a domain name gets based on a sample size. It then goes on to rank the top 100,000 most popular sites on the web according to popularity both globally and by country.

Years ago, data was collected based on everyone who installed the Alexa browser toolbar. However, results were skewed towards non-technical people because techies rarely installed IE browser toolbars. In more recent years, Alexa has said it collects data from a number of sources, but I don't believe discloses exactly how.
