How he is getting such huge traffic???

22 replies
Hi
There is a website that selling now in flippa (Auction)

New Phones and Tablets

I am amazed how he got such huge insane traffic for such a normal website. And when I am writing this, the last bid was $16100, Domain registered on March 12.
I need to know how he got these much traffic just within 2-3 months of work. What technique he is using..?

I doesnt have any connection with the seller or his website. I am trying to find out the reason why he is getting traffic, thats all.

      Sellers on flippa use bots to boost their alexa ranking to covience buyers, so don't believe what you see on the cover.

        I looked at this site before when it came up in this forum.

        This is not a good site. There is little information. The information that is there is poorly written. The grammar is atrocious.

        The site in my opinion does not offer anything of value.

        The site owner give some sort of "proof" that he is getting tons of traffic. Well, something doesn't add up. Why would so many people waste their time looking at a site like this one? The answer is they wouldn't.

        So, proof or no proof, traffic or no traffic, this site is a disaster waiting to happen for anyone unlucky enough to buy it.

          I agree ... the writing is awful. I would not trust the traffic, but even if it is real, I wouldn't buy that site. Already has a big bid on it, I believe.

    May be he is following all the good methods of having huge traffic to his site. That would be the most reliable way.

  • I'd say it's the internet equivalent of a pump & dump.

    He wants to get $$$ quickly, so either pays for traffic, has his own list, or uses bots to artificially inflate the traffic count.

    Inexperienced purchasers would look at that, say "WOW!", but as soon as they buy, the traffic drops to 0 and they are left with a dud.

    To add insult to injury -- if the purchaser asks 'what happened to the traffic', the seller blames him for not knowing how to market properly, strings him along, or something along those lines -- and manages to actually convince the buyer that its 'his' fault, and not the sellers.

    It's a scammy type of pump & dump.

    I think he is using some kind of cheap traffic like adfly to boost their site rank and to sell it quickly.

    I didn't see the site popup when I was spying on Adfly but there's like hundreds of cheap traffic sources out there (adfocus, Clicksor , etc...). Thing is the site is crap. There's just no user interaction on the website like comments, etc .

    There's lots of places you could buy tons of traffic for cheap, but the traffic is worthless for anything other than boosting ranking.

    I am looking at his Analytics and it seems like most of his traffic is coming from Search Engines, plus he has a low Bounce Rate.

      I think they might be some truth in his traffic statistics but I wonder what keywords he is ranking so high to gain such huge traffic.

    He sure isn't getting traffic from all the typos. At least proofread the site before selling it.

    Traffic numbers are important, but because a little investment into cheap, useless traffic can greatly increase the value of a site to unaware buyers on flippa, traffic source is just as important to look at.

    And one that many buyers forget to consider.

    Hmm...good luck to the new owner.

    The thing that gets me is the comment count. All the posts on the front page do not have comments. Red flag right there.

    Perhaps he is buying cheap untargeted traffic while he is trying to seel the site? Or is him=you?

    The site did not sell. Whois is still the same. They were probably shill bids.

    1. Someone from Indonesia isn't going to sell a $200 a day cash cow. That is a very poor country. It isn't worth the auction risk.

    2. He is hosting at HostGator. If the site really was making $200 a day, he wouldn't risk that money using low budget level hosting.

    3. He wasn't accepting escrow payment, which is a risk for even the seller considering the money the site supposedly makes.

    I may not be right but the instant I looked at the site I could see he would get visitors with his game/app walkthroughs.

    I remember searching for a "100 floors walkthrough" a few weeks ago.
