    I have been looking at buying some expired domains to either park or redirect traffic to related offers or build a mini niche site.

    I know it is difficult to estimate traffic but the services I have tried seem to vary wildly. I know figures can be inflated by buying traffic.

    For example there is one domain altyazi.org (not my domain!) which is on a Godaddy auction 'with traffic'. I am using this domain as an example as it has bids so obviously other people see some 'value' in it, however they may just be looking at the numbers or be shill bidders.

    It does appear to have over a million indexed pages in Google and is some kind of video/film download/torrent site popular in Turkey.

    Godaddy estimates the traffic at 65k (per month I think)
    Similarweb says it was 320k in march and 10m in January
    SEMRush say it was 56k in March
    Worthofweb.com says it gets 723k per month

    Which service, in BHW members opinion gives the best estimate of expected/real traffic?

    Of my opinion, there is no BEST estimate at all. Instead, you can use Google Analytics it's the more accurate that gives you a real image of your domain name. But in this situation, you have an expired domain, you can't use Google analytics for no registered domains.

    I prefer that you use the one that gives you the lowest number, or if the expired domain really worth more than a reg fee, it's better to buy it and use any parking service.

    I think similarweb is a better choice in this case. However you can use expireddomain .net to see the estimate traffic for expired domain.

    Work out the search volume of the keywords then presume roughly any keywords thats #1 in Google, should get roughly 52% of that traffic
