    Another sad but true buying traffic story. I agree, buying targeted traffic is a bogus investment. Don't waste your money.

    When you "buy" traffic from bulk providers it is almost always pop-under advertisements which, in my experience, has a lower than 0.001% conversion rate. In other words, you're wasting your money.

    The only thing that it's good for is to boost traffic stats

    EDIT: That being said, there are bulk traffic sources that send expired domain redirects that are actually legitimate. I've experienced conversion rates of around 4% which, considering that I paid $60 for 5,000 viewers, typically nets me a profit of $800+ per campaign.

    Yes,

    There is traffic and there is traffic, I recently came across a programme that basically transferred $20 around sign ups, this in itself is ok but they make their money through selling targetted traffic at $100 for 10,000 hits, unfortunately for them they have a live counter on their site proving the traffic is genuine. A quick copy and paste to one of the incoming urls shows a site called smiley traffic which is an auto surf programme that you can leave running all day in the background to get credits. This must surely be the worst kind of traffic ever and they were charging $100 for it. Saying that if you need free of charge traffic to boost your stats or rankings smiley traffic is the place to go (google it), 3000 hits per day just for launching the programme in the morning, one of my sites has an alexa ranking of 15,000 in the Ukraine [​IMG] lol

    Guaranteed traffic sites only most those people money. They give you pop under, pop up traffic as well as auto surf traffic.

    You are better off creating your own traffic for free.

    I've heard good things about revisitors. But it all boils down to the product we're promoting. Mind telling us what works?[​IMG]
