I'm Fed Up With Google

Google has been nothing but a bother to me in my endeavor to make some cash in the interwebs world. I firmly believe now that yes, organic search traffic is great if they come to your website intent on clicking on an ad from Adsense.

What I'm really trying to say is I'm going to try buying ad space and see if this will work for me. Since they have already clicked on an ad to get to my website, wouldn't it make more sense to click on another one within my website? I recently came across Project Wonderful which seems great for what I am trying to do.

Could buying ad space on other websites get me in trouble with Google? I'm not really familiar with it, so I want to make sure what I am doing is within their Adsense guidelines. I have read through it twice, but knowing Google it's probably hidden in the depths of some unopened page. Also, does anyone have any experience with this? Buying ad space and driving traffic to your website with adsense ads? I would love to hear some feedback and everything is greatly appreciated!

    Buying ad space wont get you banned

    At least it shouldn't

    PPC though that will most likely get you banned, it all depends on where exactly the traffic is coming from and how

      I mean, I cannot see why it would get you banned but I just want to be sure before trying it then getting banned two days later for breaking Adsense's TOS.

    Sounds like a recipe for a ban ...especially if a large % of your total traffic is paid.

    You'll get clicks no doubt, but you have to consider whether that traffic will be worth anything to advertisers ?

      I understand that completely, and that's why I came here first to ask around and see if this can actually, or has, work/worked for some warriors.

      It is just very frustrating seeing these high priority sites being able to overload their website with ads and still pay CPM networks to put up banners on other sites. I feel like there is a business model there, it might just need to be fine tuned almost exactly.

      If my website has great original content, links to other websites that know what they are talking about, and a few backlinks, I don't really see the issue if I buy some advertising space on another website.

      But then again, I'm not a Google bot. So I'm on the fence.

    My advice

    Build your blog traffic with quality content
    Capture the emails of the blog readers
    Sell your own products (or affiliate products) to the list
    Build a business around the above model, and I guarantee you’ll make way more money than what Google AdSense can ever make. It takes a lot more work but the payoff will be a lot higher, and you won’t have to worry about Google killing off your AdSense account because you might “pose a risk of generating invalid activity.”

    Google hardly slapped on Spam promotional, if should give up generic methods to promote websites. just go through unique methods and high quality visitor attraction content. avoid negative effect back links.

    Buying traffic to send it to a website with the hopes that Google's advertisers will buy it back from your does not seem like much of a strategy. Put your money in something that would make people visit your site naturally.
