How many hits?

What is the best way to get more statistics about a
company (without having to pay a lot for the info)?
I am especially interested in how many hits search
engines like AltaVista, Hotbot etc. get per month.
Media Metrix and 100Hot show the most visited sites,
but for more statistics one has to pay.

I think that TheCounter is an excellent service, but I could not find any information about search engines. And that is really what I am looking for.

If you are on, say, HotBot, go to Hotbot and get to your site through it with thecounter code on your page. Then check back at TheCounter's Referer Page after you login. It should say HotBot on there somewhere.
