    Absolutely 100% NOT... This is garbage traffic in my opinion. Everyone makes the mistake of looking for Cheap traffic but they should be more concerned with getting CONVERTING traffic...

      Absolutely right! People (including me once upon a time) always assume that cheap traffic is what they need. You need the best quality traffic you can get and you must be willing to pay top dollar for it. Ad.Fly is exactly some of the worst traffic you can get and you WILL be wasting your money. Even if you get a few people converted from quality targeted traffic, that's still much better than a 1000 people, who will never buy your stuff, from untargeted low quality traffic like Ad.Fly.

    No joke, cheap traffic is the worst.You sit there with high hopes and think things are going great, and instead it is like having bait with no smell, you don't catch anything.

    I spent several hundred dollars testing adfly with numerous marketing strategies - optin funnels, instant download funnels, etc.., and it's just not worth the time. I did make some money with one of the offers, but it was inconsistent and not scalable.

    You really don't want a bunch of freeloaders on your subscriber list anyhow. I ended up with a few thousand of them and deleted all of them. Not responsive. A small percentage will open your emails, but no conversions. And some of them will even file a spam complaint against you.

    Adf.ly is not targeted and will only give you freebie seekers.

    adf.ly = no
    all they do is taking advantage of you and you end up with nothing. not to mention that users that now see adf.ly , don't let the link re-direct and just close it

    Advertising on adfly? Maybe not a good idea. You could earn in adfly though. It is a "get paid to shorten links" website.

    I don't recommend ad fly...The traffic you get from there are freebie seekers. I had very minimal or zero conversions from that traffic most of the time.

    We've all tried Adf.ly at some stage, it's almost a right of passage lol.

    Like others have said, steer clear of it. It's about as useful as traffic-exchanges and the solo ads sold on Fiverr

    This would be the worst traffic source you could ever go to and get results. I started out using this source back in 2011 using it numerous times. I spent way too much money here before learning my lesson. Use this and the advice above and spend your money some where else. I'm just saying...

      I will go against the grain just a little by saying that all traffic has some sort of worth, it all depends on your expectations and goals.

      If your looking for sales start thinking quality, quality traffic combined with quality offers. Don't make the mistake of putting all of your money and energy into searching for magic cheap traffic sources that don't exist.

      It's true, quality traffic isn't cheap but believe it or not cheap traffic isn't cheap either when it doesn't convert well. I know that sounds crazy but it's true. Find yourself a quality offer, send some quality "targeted traffic" and learn why so many successful marketers are paying good money for traffic that you think is too expensive. Trial and error is probably the only way to learn this lesson.

      Wishing you much success,

        I even built a list with adf.ly traffic. They dont even convert on the back end! I deleted that whole list. Was a waste of my time and money. Maybe other warriors have had some luck.

          I think we all built lists with adf.ly and all got the same result. I also deleted the list I'd built with Adf.ly as they simply wouldn't buy. You couldn't sell them gold bars for a dollar, I'm very suspicious as to whether they were all kids.

    Adfly doesn't work for me as I have build a list of up to 2000 people and I did not get any backend sales at all. Instead of thinking about cheap clicks, I think it will be more practical to think of whether the traffic can converts or not.

    I would rather invest my time on traffic generation methods that have works for many people.

    Absolutely Not, Traffic will be useless and more importantly it will increase your Bounce Rate like Sky Rocket which is not good as per the Search Engines. loss of money is a small thing but bounce rate can ruin your keyword rankings.

    The traffic you get from adfly will be very random and not at all targeted so the people viewing your ad or site might or might not really be interested in what you have to offer.

    AdFly is a real dog

    The traffic is garbage

    Give it a miss.

    You'd be much better to spend your money on Facebook

    I can say, you're wasting your money if you put your money there...

    The traffic is 100% garbage.

    Even if you target the US only traffic, the conversion is NOT GOOD AT ALL and the ad budget is absorbed very quick.

    Better learn about Facebook marketing. You can get highly targeted traffic there.

    Good luck with your campaign!

        The guys at adfly are clicking sites to earn half a penny per click if I am not mistaken. Just imagine how many sites one would have to click to afford your $7 product

        Adfly is JUNK traffic!

    It's really low quality. I bought 1,000 visitors to test it out and non of them converted.

    NO! Stay away from ad.fly. It's the absolute the worst traffic one can buy. I would even consider safelist traffic to be better IMO. At least those people are interested in MMO/biz opp offers.

    You might be able to use it to cheaply split test some component of a squeeze page or something to experiment with which one people gravitate to more but like everyone is saying it's random junk traffic so don't ever expect it to convert into anything positive.
