Is there a way to see how much traffic a web page gets?

by 34 comments
Just so you know, the webpage isn't mine.

Is there any service (preferably free, like Alexa, maybe?) that can tell me how much traffic any webpage gets? Where it comes from, etc.?

Just to clarify, I want to know if it's possible to find this info out for a specific webpage, not the entire site, ok?

Thanks for the help!

    You can try to estimate it with Alexa,, Quantcast, etc... but they're just statistical estimates and have no idea what the real numbers are.

    You can do a link: search on Google to get a subset of the links pointing to a page.

    But no, there's no way to know how much traffic another site has or where it comes from. There's no way for another service to get the information without the webmaster voluntarily giving it to them (like putting tracking code on the site, which is how hosted web stats services get it to report for you).

    Statbrain is an online web stats tool that can give you an approximate measure of the number of page views on your website.

    It uses a combination of Alexa rank, backlink counts from Google, and Yahoo to generate the figure.

    If you grew up and went to public school in North America, you know that the school system here is far from perfect. Kids have all different experiences, but one common thread is that everybody learns how to be an employee and not a manager. School isn’t just designed to teach you math, science and English, there are also lessons contained in the actual structure of school itself. When you hear the bell and it directs you to class, you’re learning to follow directions in a very Pavlovian fashion. You know that you can’t get caught in the hallways during class time, so you respond to the bell in order to avoid punishment. When you go into the classroom and sit in your spot in the row of desks and you know you’re not permitted to talk to other students and that the teacher has control of the class, you’re learning that your place in society is to quietly submit to authority.

    Just a quick question for you internet marketing gurus, or for those of you who have a bit of experience in marketing your own businesses. Which social media platform drives the most traffic to your website? Im obviously going to invest a bit of time and money in advertising my business through each of the main platforms, facebook, twitter, instagram etc. I was just wondering, more out of interest than anything (because as I said, I intend to utilize each platform to its max for my business) which of these social media platforms is responsible for the highest amount of visitors to your website?

    I was reflecting on some of the things I have been working on over the past few months since I have been doing IM full time and I thought it's been a massive learning curve but I am making some progress. I've done a few little things that have helped keep me focused now that I don't have the physical motivation of a boss and a workplace surrounding me to crack the whip so to speak when I get a little lost and unmotivated during my work day.

    Hey guys - I have a question that I've been thinking about a fair amount and wanted to discuss with all of you. SEO is one of the main areas of focus for internet marketing - there are a lot of people building websites and competing for search engine traffic. There is so much information out there about search engine optimization and you can virtually get lost for days trying to figure out what the best way is to promote your website or the product that you're selling through search engine rankings.
