I was wondering what's the best tool for showing website traffic to a potential client?
I have a friend that has an insurance agency and he is hounded by sales people asking him to advertise on their websites... all of them quote him out of this world traffic statistcs. Is there anyway to prove it?
Screen shots of traffic can be fakes, and if you really want to go through the trouble you can fake a login and give access to fake stats.

Just install the Alexa toolbar on your own machine and set your homepage to your site to bump up Alexa numbers. I don't think those mean to much till you get near the top. You could ask them to pull HitWise data if any of them have a subscription.
Are they looking for flat rates, CPC or CPM deals? Could do something small on performance or a short term CMP/CPC deal and see if it converts at all.
