    I want to find the approximate daily traffic of a site which isn't ours, and the site is located in other country than US (in Greece - hence no Quantcast or Compete.com afaik) and it doesn't use Google Ads (hence no Google Ad Planner).


    I know about Alexa but the site(s) has/have relatively low traffic and the Alexa's rank isn't very useful (same stands to Google Trends). Or perhaps I should look more at Alexa's data?


    Any other ideas to know the daily traffic count?

    Alexa's rankings will be biased towards technology niches where the users are more "tech-savy"

    If it's organic traffic you can try semrush, not really sure of other ways.

    Yeah, alexa is just a rough approximation.. You could however try to analyse the website keywords and get their search ranks on them, read number of requests from Google Keyword Tool, and do a probability calculation for search traffic, depending on their spots on Google. Its still really rough approximation, but better than Alexa :)

    You can try semrush to see their approx rankings, just do the math,

    I forgot the other tool that I used in the last month, i think it was like compete.com just not sure.

    But the traffic count for that site is only from US.

    Alexa wont be the best way to judge its daily traffic. As you said , the site does not use Google adwords as well, so its really a touch one..to judge the traffic..

    Of course you're going to have some data that isn't 100% accurate, traffic isn't public lol.

    Alexa is the most accurate I've found, but even it falls short with smaller websites, and day to day traffic statistics. Data were surprisingly accurate for some sites, and not so accurate for others. It's nearly always hit or miss.

    Some tools to look at:

    Good luck :)
