How to find the Search Engine Traffic of any Site

Published On :

So how is May going for you ? Hope, it’s rocking & you are able to make every day productive enough. If you are a regular reader of DailyBlogging, you would know that we release the Traffic Stats for every month and a couple of days ago, we released the Traffic Stats for April and the Monthly Wrap-up.

If you took a closer look at the traffic stats report, then you’ll notice that the traffic we receive from search engines is over 5000. Obviously it’s not possible for me to post a report on the search engine traffic we get daily. But anybody would be interested in knowing that, right ?

Moreover, if you are a competitor in a niche which is relatively new, then you’d be itching to know how much search engine traffic that guy’s site gets daily.

Before we continue, you might want to read some SEO Tips to Optimize your site for search engines.

SEO Tips :-

Find out the Traffic received from Search Engines using SEMRush


SEMRush Search Traffic Graph

SEMRush will help you in getting the number of search engine traffic a site gets. Just go to their site & enter the site’s address in the URL field. The beauty about that site is, not only you’ll get the number you want, but also get some additional information about the site viz – Keywords, traffic received by that site from a particular keyword, position of the site in the search results for individual keywords (i.e. SERPS) & Competitor sites.

To quicken up the process you can put your site’s URL instead of the ‘’ in the below code.

Yes, there are plenty of such sites which give information like what SEMRush gives. But what I found special about SEMRush is that, the statistics provided by it is close to the actual number.

From the past two days, I was comparing the search engine traffic report provided by Google Analytics with SEMRush’s figure and surprisingly it was close by.

Use Chrome SEO Extension to find it quickly

If you don’t have enough time to go to their site & enter the URL every time you want to find the search engine traffic of any Site, then you got a fix in the form of a Chrome Extension. Chrome SEO offers you a lot of statistics and one of them is SEMRush’s approximate number.

So if you are a Chrome user, then you must quickly install the Chrome SEO Extension.

    I will try it now. I used Googla Adwords keyword tool till now, but it didn’t hint about search engine traffic a specific site gets. SEMRush seems to be very nice!

    Thanks Mani for posting this.Through this i can identify for which keyword my site is ranking. Also one question : Does Google Restrict new site in search result? My site is 3 months old.

      Normally new sites go into a “Sandbox” period (i.e. no indexing of new posts, caching or less visits by Google bot). Let some quality content flow into your site & the sandbox will be gone.

  4. Thanks for sharing. I have just know about it SEM rush. Iwill try mine.

    I can get that information directly from Google Analytics for my site. Why would I care how much traffic somebody else’s site is getting? That is just a distraction. It’s a cool tool, but I don’t see the purpose.

      So you don’t care about your competitors on Google? How they are doing with different keywords and how much traffic they are receiving?

      BTW I have a PRO account with SEMRUSH..

    Hi Mani,

    I’ve heard about SEMRush many times but never tried it. But I think I should give it a try and will see how effective it is. Thanks for your review.

    I had signed up with SEMRush a little while back and forgot that I had done it. It does display some really useful information with regards to search engine keywords.

    I haven’t really be too concerned with competitors, mainly because I usually discuss a wide range of topics on my blog, and it would be too cumbersome reviewing all the competitors.

    This is one good post Mani. I tried the SEMrush and it surprised me when I used my site and compared it to other related sites. 😀 I’m so happy with it’s performance.

    Also, this tool can be really helpful for those who are trying to build new sites using their target keywords. It can give them information as to whether their target keyword for their website could generate good traffic or not so they can anticipate or predict the future of their websites.

    Search Engine Traffic analysis is very important for any webmaster and/or blogger. I do it every day through my traffic counter. I have seen that my blog articles appear frequently on Google page 1 as compared to my website pages. That shows that content is more important than meta tags.
