Buy traffic packages?

What do you think about buying traffic? Is it legal? does it work? or maybe is dangerous and could i can get banned by google?

If you have ever done that could you recommend me good websites that have a good reputation?

Kind regards¡¡¡

There's many types of traffic that you could buy without Google frowning upon you. To illustrate: solo ads, media buys, joint ventures, social media traffic, retargeting ads, etc.


Furthermore, it is legal and the traffic will show up to your website "Yes." Now, will that traffic convert?--Is a question how leave to you to answer because there are too .many variables in place to consider.

It's legal but buying traffic works for some, and doesn't for others. I think if you have a clear idea of the market you need to tap, and you can buy that traffic, then great. I wouldn't recommend this to newbies though because for me, it's a serious money risk. I'd rather invest the money on link building and SEO.

I'm sorry, but I haven't really tried this as there was no need for me to so I am unable to provide you with good sites where you can buy traffic.

Have a good day!

Hi,

Buying traffic is not really illegal and just like contenticonz pointed out, there are good places you can buy traffic from without the worry of getting penalized by Google.

But if you are planning to buy traffic, you may want to experiment first with few ads and see if these converts well at your end. There are times that you get clicks but no sales. So you need to consider this when you plan to buy traffic.

I hope that helps!

Hi lcortezbarcelo,

You want to ask as many questions about where the traffic is coming from and how they are segmented as you can. You want to know things like is the traffic directed through software, popunders or incentivized. Also, you should be able to target a specific group/topic. You want to know how visitors get lumped into those groups?

If it sounds to you like something that would bother you when you are online researching or shopping, then I would advise not to do it, because chances are that it would bother many of your audience as well and you won't get much conversion.

I have not seen any affiliates in my program or any of my client's do well with buying traffic. They will send a whole lot of traffic, but only get the occasional sale/lead a few times a year.

You also want to make sure that you remain within the terms of any affiliate agreements. Depending on how the traffic is captured/directed it could mean you would not be compliant with some program terms.

Sorry, but I don't have any ideas on where to get quality paid traffic.

Be careful when buying web traffic, maxvisits.com offered a free trial of their service and I requested a package. I checked my web stats and looked at the URL the traffic was coming from and I went to it. It was just a website that redirects to other people's sites every 10 seconds.

I'm not sure if all the buying web traffic websites operate like this and why people visit those "traffic sites" but It's not ssomething I would pay for.
