    Help - How to check Website Hits


    I have been approached by a company to advertise on their website and they say they get 500k unique users per month and are currently a PR4 - does anyone know a good tool where you can check predicated website hits? I am not sure that they get these many hits - if so it would bring good traffic to my website. Thanks in advance for your help.

    hmm...the best I can give you is to grab the Alexa toolbar, it will give you a traffic information...if they are honestly getting 500K per month, most likely they will have a rating somewhere between 2,000 to 10,000 .

    You can always ask for a screenshot of their log analyzer for a given month.

    Thanks for all your help. I visited http://www.countercentral.com/and it looks like this is only for your own website rather than checking other peoples. Is this correct?

    Thanks

    Very strange, when I visited Alexa the website, the real website is not even listed and the site automatically reverted to another website. It is the top website on the Alexa tool bar, my search on Alexa is listed below and the website is the first website listed in the following search:


    http://www.alexa.com/browse/general?...l&catid=252035

    If you go to the actual website it is completely different design. Also the contact information is for another website. Does anyone have any ideas on this? Why does Alexa list different websites? Do you think this site has that many unique users?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Alexa isn't worth your time. This is the best way. Anyone doing this kind of thing should be ready to offer screenshots of AWStats or Webalizer for you to see.

    That's your best bet.

    I've had some people try to manipulate their stats using Photoshop, but other than that, getting them to show you their traffic is MUCH more accurate than Alexa or any other 3rd party tracking service.

    As a reference - mobiletracker.net gets ~200,000 visits/month (they have visible Sitemeter stats) and an Alexa ranking of 30,000

    My site africastay.com gets about 6000 visitors per month and is ranking in Alexa at 45000. Just a note all stats internal or external can be crooked. The same way the ' bad guys' generate false ppc clicks with automated software.

    Try Mikes Marketing Tools


    As them for more keywords and check them at http://www.mikes-marketing-tools.com/ranking-reports/ for search engine rankings.

    The more keywords they have, the more likely they're telling the truth.

    And 50,000 on Alexa isn't bad.
