• hi,

    Im in the process of purchasing my first site for a flip. My question is is there a way that i can check to see if the traffic is authentic?

    Please advise

  • It depends on where the traffic is coming from.

    1.) If it's organic traffic - I like to use sites like compete.com and semrush.com and then verify the ranking for the key terms on the search engines.
    2.) Ask for read-only access to their google analytics account.

    Thanks for your response. I forgot to add in my original post that the seller's using Awstats and not Google Analytics. Is it possible to get read-only access to their Awstats account? I've never used awstats, so I'm not sure.

    thanks
  • awstats is always read only so you just need to ask the seller for access to view it.
