Starting a Business

How can I determine the search engine exposure and traffic of a website prior to purchasing?

I am considering purchasing domain names in other countries (example: vacations.com.au). I would like to know ahead of time, before spending the thousands on an international trademark, what kind traffic I can expect from those other countries. This would give me an edge on US competition I currently have. Thanks.
