Is Fiverr traffic that you pay for actually real?

In advance, thanks for answering.

I recently paid for 4 gigs to have traffic sent to one of my business landing pages. Now I usually only pay for proven traffic that I know works. But I thought I would deviate temporarily and try something knew just to see what kind of a response I would get.

According to the different google analytics reports, I'm receiving a total of around 1800 hits in all to my landing page of "real people!"

The question I have is, for those of you who are techie, do you know if they are actually "real people?"

I ask because my landing page is normally one that turns a percentage of the people who go to it into leads. But with these fiverr clicks, I might get one lead a day out of 1800 hits per day, IF that. Percentage wise this doesn't even come into the ball park of what is normal. Granted... only half of these are keyword targeted clicks/hits, but I would think that if they were real people, I would get a few more based on past experience on this landing page.

I've been told by the gig owners that they are real people and some are putting my webpage/landing page as a full page popup that people get on their computers.

Now I understand you get what you pay for. These are cheap clicks... but I still want to understand what is actually happening. Can anyone help and tell me what these fiverr gigs are actually doing/using to send the clicks?

They claim they are not using bots. But one gig owner said people are spending approximately 20 to 30 seconds average on my landing page which only takes about 5 seconds to read. A little hard to believe.

Thoughts anyone?

    You answered your own question: 1,800 hits with 1 or less conversions.

    It's $5 bucks.

    People Pay $5 per click in some instances.

      The challenge is, I do not know if that one lead is actually from that traffic method.

      What are they actually doing? Do you know?

        Whether bots or not . . .

        What is important to conversion is that the prospects are targeted to what you have to offer.

        I don't know your niche, but my guess is that these clicks are being sent to your site without the least attempt to match their interests with what you have to offer. It's no surprise that your conversions are very very low.

        I'm not sure that it's possible to know, from your stats, what a bot click looks like compared to a human click. And if the human clicks are simply sweathouse labor in a foreign land being paid to click a link, it really doesn't matter.

        Hi! Does it really matter though? What they are doing? If they are not buying then there's enough info in that alone, you know? May not be bots but paid traffic is shady in a lot of ways in a lot of cases, especially with these gigs. Use some real targeted traffic that you trust, obviously you do not trust this method. Let it be and move on to the next one

  • Only thing fiverr is good for......graphics and animation or actors.

    Buying clicks or traffic from fiverr, you might as well burn the 5 dollars.

    The whole traffic trick from fiverr works like this, there are real people that is part of a network that gets paid to click your site but they are from third world countries who wouldnt care about your business.

    Stick to real organic seo or solo ads, fb ppc or ppv, or forum marketing by adding value and solving other people's problems is the best way to gain following.

    Some of them are real while others are just to increase your page views. What I will suggest is install google analytics on your site or any other tracking tool. Use one traffic source and test. If your bounce rate or the rate at which visitors leave your site is high then discontinue with that traffic source.

    If someone could get 1800 decent visitors for $5, they wouldn't be selling it on Fivver. They would just use the technique for their own sites and make millions.

    The traffic are either bots or he add your link to a traffic exchange site

    Probably the traffic your site acquired is through pay-per-click websites. Its maybe a visit from real people but they usually doesn't care what services you offer. If your primary aim is to get a lead then better switch tactics. Pay-per-click sites usually pays clickers $0.01 or less than that per click.

    I've seen gigs where they sell a hard link and guest posting. I think those could be decent. But just traffic and the amount they promise for $5? Nah, I really don't think that's real. At the most some skimmed chinese visitors but that's just a waste of time and money.
    When buying traffic tracking it is key, so how are you evaluating the traffic?

      It depends on what you mean by 'real' - sometimes it can be real traffic, but for $5 you'll never get targeted traffic that actually converts.

      Fiverr can be good for some things, but definitely not for traffic.

    The majority of any cheap traffic you buy off of fiverr will be people using services like "addmefast" so they are real people. But they aren't interested in your website. Just the "points" they will receive from viewing it.

    You should hook up some kind of analytics to your site if you don't even know how long they are staying on your landing page?

    If I was you I wouldn't bother buying this type of traffic to try and sell anything.

      Thats not a bad question at all.. my understanding is that they are basically the same thing except that solo ads are more of a paid exchange per based off of mailing lists. And addmefast type are an exchange of services (ill like your youtube video if you like mine) with an option to purchase points to do so.

        Don't buy traffic? It will not convert.

        I was at same point 2 years ago. At that time I was also searching for traffic sellers. I saw people are selling 2000 vistors, 5000 vistors for a cheap price. I have tried a lot but no sales. Only hits.

        It is worthless to buy traffic if they don't sign up your email list, or don't convert into sales. What you will do with 2000 hits to your website if you can't get a single sale?

        The people who sale traffic on fiverr are simply using traffic generated software. They just put your website url and referring page url. They set the number of hits.Than the bot do the work.

        You think they are traffic from real sites. Nope they are not.

        If you say I can provide you the same software. After few days you can also sell that type of traffic . Yes...

        Hope my experience will help you.

          I purchased a gig few days back. This was for article submission so i thought that would bring some organic targeted traffic. But this guy didn't answered any question from the first day and didn't delivered the work as promised!!! Only 75 posting were done rather than 1200 article submission which was promised earlier on the gig. I think Fiverr is not at all good for traffic.

    It's not real traffic. If it is at all "real", it is just someone visiting the site and clicking off of it to go to the site of the next sucker that bought the same gig. I bet the time on the site is less than 10 seconds for most, if not all, of them.

    There are lot of bots which can generate fake traffic using proxies. Some of them even have the capability to show the traffic in google analytics and also allows you to choose the source of the traffic to show as the referrer like google search, facebook, twitter etc. What you pay is what you get.

    You can use fiverr for graphics, wordpress installation, Virtual assistance for 2 hours etc but definitely not for link building and traffic. If all the fiverr traffic were true then google adwords would not be existing ! When you can get thousands of converting traffic for 5 bucks, why some one will pay 30 to 40 cents per click in google adwords. But it does not happen that way. Google adwords and Bing traffic are real and converts better than any other source (except free organic visitors).

    90% of Fiverr traffic gigs are crap, but there are legit gigs. Look for reviews with specific numbers eg 8 opt-ins etc. Some gigs blatantly lie about 'SENDING REAL VISITORS' and send bots instead. Others use safelists that are chockful of marketers. They click on ads to earn credits so that their own ads display within the network but will NEVER NEVER opt in or buy etc. They are preoccupied with their own offers and are unlikely to take you up on your offers. These ads are technically not lying, they are sending real people and they are sending to a targeted list, but it's a list of preoccupied marketers, not fresh biz op seekers.

      Traffic is meaningless without qualifying it first. Imagine you had a Rolls-Royce dealership. Would you invite 1800 factory workers to the launch? Or 12 local businessmen you know turn over $1million+ per year? Decide who your product is best suited for. And find them. One by one if need be but find them and retain them. A dozen lifetime customers is better than 100 fair weather ones.

    Hi,

    Yeah the traffic you get from there will be dirt cheap because it isn't targeted
    nor is it worth much to your business either.

    Hits for show, proven buyers on your lists for dough!

    Hey you now know something else that hasn't worked move onto
    something that does work.

    Never stop in your pursuit of high quality leads and traffic my friend.

    Good luck in the near future and keep pushing on.

    If you want to increase your traffic, you must do the SEO. There is no alternative way to increase site traffic. Back link, ad, Social media marketing, Article, Forum posting. All of these process has a great aim, behind these kinds of work, Back link is the main. Back link may be Do-follow or, No-follow. Do-follow is better than no-follow. Because the Do-follow increase both Traffic & page rank at a time. on the other hand no-follow increase only manual traffic. I do not want to know who is doing work on your site, I don't want to know where the worker is? Is he from Fiverr traffic? no need to do these kinds of work. But You must do SEO work to increase your site traffic.

        It is very tempting to jump for something that "sounds too good to be true". Let's ask ourselves few questions:

        - Someone is able to generate 1800 hits/day, so that means that the person has some IM/SEO background
        - Do you think that such savvy person will not know about all the affiliate programs, list building etc And if they know that, then what is the need for them to sell that traffic when they can make money themselves with tit
        - Is the generated traffic targeted?

        There would be many red flags before you would buy traffic. Most of such traffic is un-targeted and comes from pop-ups/pop-unders, traffic exchanges etc.

        Best is to take the slow and steady approach based upon solid founding blocks. This is like any other business where you need to have a plan to execute upon. Do the normal SEO optimization and over time you see much better target audience

        Good luck!

      For what it's worth I trust very little on Fiverr. I've used it for various things and have only had 2 gigs that did what they advertise to do.

      The big secret of Fiverr is that most of us think: "It's only $5" and don't bother chasing a refund.

    At the end of the day, you get what you pay for.... If a gig offers you 10,000 hits to your website for a $5 (or even $10), then chances are, it's too good to be true.

    Also you have to be careful.. SEO & generating traffic to your site is a delicate thing that must be done properly. (i.e. if you buy a gig that creates a 1000 backlinks to your site from few directories in a space of a few days, you'll come up on Googles radar for all the wrong reasons & you risk getting your site blacklisted).

    Learn about the right way to bring traffic to your site & what works... You need to put the work in - but the end results will be more beneficial to you.

    You can find more reputable SEO experts that will help promote your site through sites such as freelancer.com. Make sure you do your homework though & the person you're hiring knows their stuff. Also be prepared to may more than a $5. :-)

    They do not buy or sign up. Personally, it seems to me like they are bots, but I could be wrong. Hey, traffic that does not convert uses up your bandwidth and cost you some money. Choice is your. Most of us want traffic that yields results, but I can see that you might want the traffic to test your website for some reason.

    Pay peanuts and get a monkey mate. Most of the traffic is from bots pinging your site.

    You need targeted, fresh traffic to your landing page.
    Buying traffic from Fiverr is worthless and not worth the hassles.

    Seems like this has already been answered but I will chime in with my answer as well.

    When it comes to "real" traffic, everyone thinks that "conversion" means the same.

    Some people will tell you that conversion means boost my Alexa ranking for my new site that
    i just built. If that's your conversion and that's what happens when you bought that traffic...then that was REAL traffic.

    However if you are looking for SALES conversion then common sense should tell you that if you can get all the traffic you want for the same price as a Subway sandwich...then everyone would be doing it and have the best success in the world. Unfortunately that's not how the free market works. Something that has value to it will have to cost you.

    No! Usually, traffic from Fiverr Gigs can get your site and/or Videos in trouble. Do the right thing and look around this Forum for the proper ways to gain traffic.

    Traffic from fiverr gig sucks... it
    a waste of time and money,
    it's better you invest that money in
    solo ads, PPC campaigns rather
    than paying someone to send you fake
    traffic which can affect your PR

    little difference does it make if it's real or not to be honest ... see the conversion rates and numbers. 1 out of 1800 ? that's .... not good. either you are doing something wrong or the traffic is just for the eyes of people

    I would recommend avoiding Fiverr or any marketplace like this for buying traffic, it is more than likely bots or fake traffic according to those figures...

    Tip: depending on what your niche is go find blog owners or site owners in your niche and contact them directly, pay them a little money and ask them to run a solo ad or display a banner .

    If you dont have time to research this, then outsource someone to do it for you

    Always skip the middle man go directly to the source

    I hope this helps

    Typically, these "overseas clickers" spend less than one second on your page. Also, they do not buy anything or sign up. Yeah, those special services cost extra green. What I call it is "trash traffic" that uses up my bandwidth and does not generate any money. Best strategy is to use that five dollars to get links to your web site and that will help your rank as well as send some traffic your way.

  • I once bought a gig for traffic from Fiverr, mostly out of curiosity. It turned out to be traffic from text exchange solo ads. These are the guys that advertise sending your ad out to a network of 29 sites and 30,000 members for $24.95, for example. Once you purchase one of these packages, you can then set up a bunch of solos that go out over their member networks. So that's what someone sent as their gig. Better than bot traffic but still very low quality.

    I think the real question here is.. if your traffic is converting?

    You see they can pretty much give you thousands of traffic (REAL or NOT)
    but if it isn't the market of what you have to offer then it is pretty much useless.

    The answer you see, lies in the question.... Here in Canada the BIG KING just launched for $5 for the entire combo (Trust me in Canada for a burger combo thats like given for free)... Anyway it SUCKS, it tastes like $5 in comparison to the BIG MAC....

    Same thing with cheap traffic, most of the time it doesn't convert, doesn't help your business, and makes your conversion rate look like crap...

    (And most of the time they spend $2.00 buying the traffic on some shady website)

    Please don't waste your precious time and money on fiverr traffic.

    My experience: It doesn't work at all.

    A few years back, I had a landing page that converts 5-6% consistently (giving away a free report about how to set up an ebay business for beginners). And I bought a few thousand clicks on fiverr from different sellers. Guess what...

    None of them opt in, can you believe that? ZERO opt in.

    I ask for my refund and totally abundant fiverr traffic from that point of time.

    Now, I would rather spend my time and money on producing high quality content to attract TARGETED traffic.

    Hope it helps...

    Tip: Never buy traffic from Fiverr! Its all fake and they are bots. Google will eventually find out and penalize you for it.

    I wouldn't touch Fiverr when it comes to traffic. A lot of the people who buy traffic from Fiverr don't know what they are doing and don't realize it is fake. When I used to do more consulting back in the day, I saw people buying Fiverr traffic and all of the visitors came from "bots". Pretty much machines that just kept hitting your site to make the numbers go up.

    Although there are a few (very few) legitimate traffic gigs on fiver, the majority are robots. You will get traffic. You will even see it in your analytics but you will not get any actual visitors. I know because there is someone on fiver selling that same software so that others can create fiver gigs and get into the "traffic game"

    Of course you have paid any freelancer ,who worked for you.I am sure freelancer can increase your traffic, but he never be able to increase your sell. If your aim is to increase your sell, it is not possible by a freelancer. most of the traffic is spam. Not the real.

    I think it's junk traffic, but it looks extremely real.

    For example:

    I once ordered a solo ad from a massive list there (think it was like 700,000+). I got tons of traffic, and even a few opt ins. I waited a few weeks and ordered that same gig again. And I noticed I had got the same individual emails to opt in again, and that's when it hit me. What are the odds of that happening!? lol...stay away from Fiverr traffic

    you spend 4 or 5 gig . It is nearly useless. You get automated traffic ie,clicks generated from bots.

  • Profile picture of the author JohnnyPlan
    The only reason you want traffic is to make sales or get people to sign up to an email list. So if it's not accomplishing either of these goals, then who cares if it's 'real human web traffic' or just bots hitting your page. Either way, your money is wasted. Lots easier ways to get traffic to a page and cheaper too, if you know how to use social media well.

    Some traffic may real. But most of the traffic is spam. so one freelancer can increase a site hit within a short time, but he is not able to increase sale, at a short time. It is so hard to increase sell. It need many time, of course the traffic is the first step to increase sell, but it need to be real traffic not spam.

    If you buy 25,000 hits for $5 you can guarantee yourself the traffic is not real. In fact, any thousands of visitors for $5 is just not real, period.

    I recently paid for 4 gigs to have traffic sent to one of my business landing pages. Now I usually only pay for proven traffic that I know works. But I thought I would deviate temporarily and try something knew just to see what kind of a response I would get.

    According to the different google analytics reports, I'm receiving a total of around 1800 hits in all to my landing page of "real people!"

    The question I have is, for those of you who are techie, do you know if they are actually "real people?"

    I ask because my landing page is normally one that turns a percentage of the people who go to it into leads. But with these fiverr clicks, I might get one lead a day out of 1800 hits per day, IF that. Percentage wise this doesn't even come into the ball park of what is normal. Granted... only half of these are keyword targeted clicks/hits, but I would think that if they were real people, I would get a few more based on past experience on this landing page.

    I've been told by the gig owners that they are real people and some are putting my webpage/landing page as a full page popup that people get on their computers.

    Now I understand you get what you pay for. These are cheap clicks... but I still want to understand what is actually happening. Can anyone help and tell me what these fiverr gigs are actually doing/using to send the clicks?

    They claim they are not using bots. But one gig owner said people are spending approximately 20 to 30 seconds average on my landing page which only takes about 5 seconds to read. A little hard to believe.

    Thoughts anyone?
