How can you tell the amount of traffic going to a domain you wish to buy?

I'm interested in buying a domain name from someone. Is there a site which authetically tracks how much traffic there already is going to the site.

    Well there is Alexa which can tell you how many people are visiting the site. But I'm pretty sure there are ways for the owner of the domain to inflate the data on Alexa if they really want to. You could also look at services like sedo that do appraisals, there are probably a few of these that include the Alexa rankings and keyword rankings in the appraisal. Hope this helps.

    Without getting direct access to their statistics software the best you might be able to do is review it at alexa.com.

    This will not tell you how many hits exactly but estimate traffic in terms of how many people in a million hit the site. It's at least a gauge of traffic. If you compare the domain you are interested in with a well known site you visit, or perhaps this domains competition it will at least give you a starting point.

    The seller should provide you with such info. They do usually set up a tool to record who visited the site and from where - that's how they give a price to a domain by knowing how popular it is.

    Check the following site:

    http://www.alexa.com/data/details/main?q=&url=

    just type in the domain you want to buy and wait to

    see if it is listed and how good it is.
