hi ,

ive been reading on the forums that traffic can be purchased approx 10,000 visitors for approx $10 is this reliable?

has this been tested by anyone before on these forums?

does this results in clicks or signups?

i would like to know people's thoughts on this as im looking into purchasing this...

    Hi Tuzic,

    You have to ask what type of traffic are you going to get for $10.

    When you consider that getting 'quality' people to your site is one holy grail of the Interent I'd be very surprised if you could simply purchase it for $10, whatever the hype might say.
    Getting converting traffic to a site takes effort, paying out $10 does not.

    All the best with your hunt though

      Thats a waste of money so bin that idea and focus on geting just 2 new customers everyday that make you a cool $200... is $6,000 per month

      Tested this on adsense and affiliate sites a couple years ago. No clicks and no conversions. Massive waste of money and time for me and others.

        thanks for your replies,

        but on some of the best forums theres been hundreds of responses & hype about it all being great, 100% genuine, & adsense revenue etc increasing?

        but as stated it does just seem like the easy way out & pointless if no clicks are generated from this.

          Hey Tuzic,

          In my own experience, a lot of the users of other forums (dp etc) are just pleased that they got some page views. A lot of these guys get so little traffic that even a boost of fake traffic is good for them.

          I'd avoid it personally. Yes, you might find something that gives you an adsense click or two, but it will take you forever to weed the wheat from the chaff, and in that time you could have started generating real traffic.

          Also, a slight aside, I think bought traffic like that could be a violation of Adsense TOS. I don't really use adsense but I know they are strict, so watch out...

          Killer Emails. Cash-spewing VSLs. Turbocharged Landing Pages.

          Whatever you need, my high converting copy puts more money in your pocket. PM for details. 10 years experience and 9 figure revenues.

            yes thanks for your reply,

            i didnt realise this, & they reassure us that this definitely wont go against adsense TOS!

              Save your money and use it for getting traffic with adwords instead.
              There you can get targeted traffic (depending on your ability to research the best and most profitable keywords for your market).
              In the end, it all depends on the ROI.
              Take following example: 10 USD converts into 40 clicks of 25 cent each.
              40 highly targeted visitors and a website that converts at a rate of 2.5% combined with a product that sells for 20 USD and pays a 50% commission and you are break-even.
              Now capture also the email adresses of the visitors and you get a nice mailing list over time. Or have your own product and make a profit of 10 USD (and have the email adresses as well)

    No.I think it is a complete waste of your time and money.The traffic you will receive from these is not targeted, meaning the people are not interested in what you have to offer = no sales.
