    Has anyone used this service? I found a website for marketing that takes old domain names with traffic built up on them and ranking and redirects people to your site. The sites are supposed to be in the same catagory as yours, (work at home, ect...) I am thinking about this, but thought I should get some of the advise from here first! Thanks in advance!

    BTW, it is about $30 for 5,000 hits. They will prorate any hits that you didn't get, or rerun it I think. I just don't want to waste my money.

    I have not actually tried anything like that nor, have I even heard of it, can I ask what site you were on, or were looking into, also if anyone uses it and has an opinion if you wouldnt mind send me a message as well, thank you

    Find out the country from which the visitors are. Chinese traffic is very difficult to monetize

    Well, the only way I have available for someone to purchase my system is paypal or alertpay. Would there still be a problem?

    Yes, in some country use of credit cards is not very common

    I have heard of this too. although I'm not smart enough to get advice first. I just bought 50,000 visits today and I'm really hoping that it was worth it. The site is and another one is did you ever try it? and if so how did it work for you?

    any help would be great!

    What kind of product / service are you selling?

    I'm selling make money products as an affiliate but from my own site. Why what would it matter?

    It matters because traffic is useless if they aren't interested in what you are offering.

    For instance, what good would it be for me to get 50,000 people to visit my auto insurance site if none of them had cars and could drive?

    You want targeted traffic. People who are specifically looking for what you are offering/selling. That's the reason that search engine traffic is the very best sort.

    If someone types in a search term "free car insurance quotes online" and my site comes up in the search results, I am much more likely to have a visitor who actually wants a car insurance quote.

    I hope that explains it a bit. [​IMG]

    1. Many of these create bots that visit your site. Bots don't buy anything [​IMG]

    2. As HappyWife mentioned, these sites deliver untargeted traffic. Few will purchase your wares.

    3. If the visitors are paid-to-surf folks, they will hardly even glance at your wares.

    4. Don't "buy" traffic.

    5. There's no shortcut or substitute for white hat methods, which drive targeted traffic for a good long time.

    I agree with the last two posts. The traffic doesn't sound like it would be targeted to your offer. Of course I may be wrong, wouldn't be the first time [​IMG]. since you are using it, post back and give a thumbs up or down.

    I havent used this and I also agree with other posts you will be much better off and will be more beneficial to you to stick with targetted traffic it might mean more work and time but it will make you more money in the long term.
