    I've seen posts on these forums where people talk about the "local searches" of a domain name before they have bought it. Recently I've been thinking of buying a domain for one of my own ventures, but I want to test the water for potential traffic before beginning the real hard work.

    I understand that Google Analytics and other online programs can be used to track a domain one it is in use, but how can I possibly see how popular a domain is before it has actually been purchased?

    Thanks Guys,

    Dean.

    download traffic travis for free. search your term in research as "exact matches" restrict the results to your local market or the market you are trying to target.
