What is your most profitable paid traffic source?

I want to expand my business and start testing paid traffic. I don't want to move from source to source just start testing one at a time. I wonder if you have any good experience with paid traffic sources other than Adwords, MSN/Yahoo and 7search.

By the way, my plan is to use them on the health and fitness niche and I want to test 2 different approaches. The first one is to send them directly to a website which usually sends on average 35% of their traffic to the merchant. The second approach I would like to test is to send the traffic to a squeeze page and build a list. So if you have any experience using paid advertising on the health and fitness niche I would really appreciate if you can share your experience.

Thank you!

    FB traffic is pretty great and should test that traffic for sure.

      Thank you Mike!. Quick question, Does FB allows to send traffic to a squeeze page , or it is better to send them to my site and then try to move those people to the squeeze page?

      Thanks

      Most useless traffic in the world, I've tried this 250 clicks with no converts.

        Yup, because you got 250 clicks and didn't convert any - its worthless. Great logic. :rolleyes:

    for me its solo ads

    the conversions that i get from solo ads are insane

    i am able to build a list of prospects and buyers from solo ads and most of the time i actually make back my solo ad initial investment and often more right off the bat

    so then the rest of my prospects what ever i get from them is pure profit

    It depends on the niche.

    For some niches facebook works better, and for some other niches adcenter works better, etc.

    For your niche adcenter(MSN/Yahoo) should be working better!

    It depends on your needs and your targeted audience. If you need to target audience by age group then Social Networking Paid Campaign are good for you. If you want to target on general level then you can go with Google Adwords and Microsoft Adcenter.

    Microsoft Adscenter is batter then Google Adwords for best ROI but not enough searches on Bing.

    Hope this may help you,

    Cheers

    For me, the most profitable paid traffic source is Adwords Display Network (the banner ads).

    With ADN you could get bargain price clicks with quality as targeted as Search Network. The quality is the same, but the price is much cheaper.

    But, unfortunately, affiliates can't advertise on adwords. Only if you are the product creator/ owner, you could get the benefit from this traffic goldmine.

    fb traffic CAN be useless.
    my experience is that showing the ads to kids is bad, they click everything.
    go for age 24+ i say.

    I persoanlly have never had that much success with 7Search, yet know others who love it. Getting the best traffic sources is all about targeting the right niche. Though it is expensive, in some niches PPV traffic is hard to beat. It can be a problem breaking in with the better PPV networks. As to Adwords, I agree with @elexmedia, the ad display netowrk has been successful for me more often than not.
