1000 Hits Per Day?

I received an email from somebody in Pakistan who want to exchange exchange a link with my Chemical Engineering blog. This was his message:

“HI dear…!
I’m a Chemical Engineer from Pakistan.
Just saw your blogs.. Really good work…
check this one…

www.xxx.com (this is not the real name of the site – by the way it is a chemical engineering related site)

getting more than 1000 hits per day..
if interested in link exchange…?

waiting for your reply…”

I was so curious because of the 1000 hits per day. So, I make check whether he is really enjoying 100 hits per day for a technical niche blog. After searching in Googgle, I found TrafficEstimate.com, and the tagline is:

Discover the Traffic a Web Site Gets

How much traffic do those websites get? Use the Traffic Estimate tool to find out approximately how much traffic a website gets by entering the URL of the web site below.

So, I typed in that “www.xxx.com” and this was what appeared:


Sorry, cannot estimate number of visits to that site at this time

Hmm… what the hell is this? so, I typed in other websites and blogs, the ones that are more established (some of which were my own and some my colleagues)…and found out that it gave a fair estimate. In other words, their estimates are reliable. Below are an example taken from my blog which I kind of know the estimated daily traffic, and I found it to be not a bad estimate at all… (Ops…I’m revealing the rough traffic of my blog and I know it’s tiny compared to other blogs, but I don’t mind because it’s a technical niche blog).


Estimate 4,500 visits in the previous 30 days.

When i type in some of my new blogs that I know do not have any organic traffic or other types of traffic, the same thing thing appears as www.xxx.com:

Sorry, cannot estimate number of visits to that site at this time

My Conclusion…

So, I concluded that www.xxx.com is not getting 1,000 hits per day. I think so… I believe so…after experimenting it with numerous blogs and sites.

Another conclusion is that Traffic Estimate cannot estimate the number of traffic of a site if it is too low…

My action…

Well, I still welcome and appreciate the thought of that guy who want to make a link exchange. So, I offered him a better idea since his blog has great content. I offered him to place 3 links of my niche blogs in his site. In exchange, I’ll put his link and also blog about his site (which I found a very good one). I think it’s a fair deal…

Share and Enjoy

    well I try on my blog.. they said the same as the pakistani’s result.. and i try on another blog which is both is from different domain, they said it was 9300 visit in last 30 days..

    the question is.. the blog with 9300 visit actually didn’t get that much traffic.. so my conclusion is you need to call that guy again and ask for traffic detail, let say from google analytic, or any stat counter he’s using.. but not from the hosting stat because it count the spiders and spammer visit too..

    or just using alexa.. fair enough huh!!

    Thanks for your input…I’ve tried the options am…
    and found nothing.
    I doubt if I asked the traffic details, he would give not give me a correct traffic detail. Anyhow, it’s just a small matter – just to exchange link. So, I don’t want to make a real fuss about it. i just counter his proposal by proposing mine.

    By the way, I think it’s sort of cool to learn about Traffic Estimate… hu hu

    The issue here is the blogger claiming to have that sort of traffic but he only based on what appear in the search engine and not based on google analytics, statcounter or other traffic measuring device. What can we do if the person do not want to give that information and what can we do if they provide false info.

    So, we need to search for an alternative i.e. to get a software or a website which can help us estimate that website performance. Alexa gives us good indicator but for it’s difficult to get analysis if the traffic is too small.

    Well, those are just my 2 cents…
