    Yes, and I have yet to find even one that has brought a even ONE sale as a result of their traffic. Many use bots/fake traffic but even the other 'legit' ones have yet to make a single sale for me.

    Nope - can't see a reason to waste money on something like that I'll take a hundred targeted, presold visitors to my site versus one hundred thousand purchased hits - what's the point of visitors if they aren't the least bit interested in what I'm selling?

    Will such traffic be useful to increase youtube video views or ezine article views?

    Tried it once, a few years ago. According to the service's stats, I got 10,000 hits in just under 6.5 minutes. My stats showed 6 unique visitors for the hour.

    Have experimented with it more than once, trying different applications, and have never had a single good thing. Not a single sale, sign up, etc. Complete waste of time and money.

    Since I sell sites, that's the last thing I want is fake, bought, untargeted traffic. My sites would be worthless with it. Learn how to get real, targeted traffic instead of taking a short cut that does not work.

    Yup, that kind of traffic is absolutely worthless.

    I bought when I was a newbie. Your time and efforts would be better spent on learning how to get real targeted traffic to your website.

    Most of that kind of traffic will be PTC traffic, which is why it
    doesn't work.

    It can work for paricular websites though... Example: If you
    promote another PTC website, you may get a couple of
    members.

    Tried that 5 years ago. In fact, I bought a few to test them out.

    Not 1 single sales or opt in.

    So may as well use the money some where else.

    Some of them sell you overused list or automated junks. I recommend you keep your money or give it to the needy.

    I think everyone starting out has at one time purchased traffic in one form or another. Those that are selling like your talking about are generally good if your just trying to get your Alexa rank up, but other than that I don't recommend spending your money on it.

    Most of this traffic is bots or something even worse. Check out my post on another thread (to save me from writing it again) about how some of this traffic is generated. People don't even see your site with this method, and you can generate untold amounts of traffic, with just a little bit of code on a site that get some traffic.

    I bought some hits on Ebay for youtube video views...worst thing I have ever done. The guy was a complete nut and after he finished left really inappropriate and crass remarks on my video! Won't be doing THAT again obviously!

    Just to Echo what others have said,

    I tried it a few years ago on a site I built before I had any idea what I was doing, completely useless and the whole experience put me off IM for a few years.

    Being a totall Newbie, it left me with the impression that IM was BS.

    Not recommended.

    Significant Changes to the Facebook Newsfeed Algorithm

    Facebooks just announced substantial changes to the news feed algorithm with changes to the types of content that will be given preference in the news feed. As has been expected for a while Facebook is tending more and more towards killing organic page traffic. Probably motivated to increase ad revenue. Also sounds particularly tailored towards taking down url only style posts.

    What to do with your Content?

    Imagine that you have just finished writing a blog or a piece that checks all the boxes. It has great value, is well designed, interactive and can be a hit with the audience. Now, you are sitting there and wondering what to do next. That is a situation which most bloggers and content writers, especially beginners, encounter on a frequent basis. Most people do not know where to go next and what to do with their content, once they are finished with everything. Well, the answer to those questions is fairly simple. When you are done writing a blog or content page and are satisfied with end product, the logical next step is distribution and publishing. The top content marketers and bloggers today, are of the opinion that while content may be king; it's the distribution which matters. Jonathan Perelman went on record to say that content is king and distribution the queen.
