Is there a free online service where I can see how many hits a website is getting?

    I want to estimate the traffic currently going to a dead website that was active a few months ago in order to analyse the residual traffic.

    I do not own said website.

    Is there some sort of site i can go to that could do this?

    Well you can see its alexa and get an idea for the traffic. A site having an alexa of 100000 gets around 1000 visits daily.

    I am not exactly sure how acurate that is, but I have used it a few times. For my personal sites it is always pretty close.

    no, if alexa 100.000, the visits only 400-600 visits a day...

    If you want to see how much the traffic exactly is NO. But you can check Alexa for a rough estimate

    nice. alexa says it doesn't have info on the site i checked it for

    on statbrain.com it claims the site gets 500 hits a day. could this possibly be accurate?

    Use compete.com

    Alexa should only be used for relative comparisons - it will not tell you how much traffic a site has and anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong.
