I'll buy a porn tube off some guy from a forum tomorrow. About 2 months old, pretty good stats, and a decent monetization system.
How do I know I'm not getting a site with botted traffic? I did access the analytics as a guest and could take a quick look at them but I'm new to buying and selling websites so I really didn't know what to look for.
Another question, is there any way the guy could scam me and pull back the site after I pay? He already agreed to use a middleman but you can never be too sure.

I'd like to hear some advice from an experienced member.

You can check the traffic showed on services like Ahref, Semrush. These tools are not 100% accurate all the times though, so you should leave to these tools a margin of error while using them, but if these tools shows 0 traffic and your seller tells you there are 10k users daily... then probably it's botted.

What if I already accessed the site's analytics and saw the numbers myself?

Same thing. There are ways for botted traffic to appear on Analytics

if you have access to the analytics, check if he is putting UTM on the links, and the source of traffic, also, ask him to share the data from Google search console so you can really see his SEO traffic

Check countries, cities, devices/operating systems, how long they stay on the page, pages they visit, and look at the trend of revenue, is it going down or up.
But ideally, you'd want to get advice from someone who's already running such a business.

If you are willing to share the screen with me we can do a quick video call in the analytics of this website and I can help you to navigate and explain to you the traffic, no problems, 15 min
