A simple trick:
When using the SEMRush traffic analytics tool, switch between devices type to see traffic for Desktop and mobile separately.
The traffic analytics feature is available as an add-on and can be added with any SEMRush plan for only $200/month.
The base SEMRush plan (Pro) package will cost $99/month and then you need to buy the add-on to find website stats of any domain. The Pro package offers a suite of SEO features and you can learn about it here.

Find traffic of a website for free
SimilarWeb is another popular traffic estimation tool to get traffic overview of a website. In my testing, the website offers one of the most comprehensive data about website traffic and other important matrices.
Using SimilarWeb tool, you can find the following data about any website:
Avg. visit duration
Traffic by countries
Competitors & Similar Sites (I feel this one is pretty inaccurate)
Pricing of SimilarWeb:
SimilarWeb offers free and a Pro plan. The free plan is decent enough to give you a traffic estimate about a website. However, for more detailed data, you need SimilarWeb Pro, which offers an Enterprise plan. The pricing of the enterprise plan is not public at this moment.
On the fun side, If you are a website owner, you will also find the website Global, Country and category rank useful.
Here is what I see for ShoutMeLoud:
Website traffic checker: Free and Paid (Conclusion)
There are more website traffic report tools available in the market. However, these two helps you quickly find the details you are looking for.
Similarweb being a free tool is idle for most of the advertisers and marketers who are looking to get quick traffic estimation of a website. For others who are into competitive analysis, SEMRush traffic analytics provide the in-depth website traffic report and ranking.
Depending upon your requirements, you could pick either of them.
