Sources for generic paid traffic?

I'm looking for any sources of generic paid traffic.

What I mean by generic is traffic from the general public not related to "making money online" type sites.

Is there even such a thing?

I am not sure how you can say "generic" since all paid campaigns let you target a specific market.

If you want wider coverage, it should always be paid campaigns in search or try paid social media ads.

I'm confused.

On the one hand you say you can buy traffic to meet a specific market and on the other hand, when you replied to my other question, you say all paid traffic is directed only to "making money online".

Let's say I have a web site all about camping. I have clickbank ads on there for books on camping and I have affiliate ads on there for camping supplies, etc.

There is no way I can buy paid traffic from people looking for information on camping?

Hi there,

For this: all paid traffic is directed only to "making money online", I am only referring to the site(s) you mentioned that only accepts affiliate marketing/biz opp niches, which is true for some paid traffic.

You can actually promote almost all niches using paid traffic. For camping niche, you can promote this using paid ads like Bing or Google.

If you wanted to get general traffic, Then you have to go with SEO ( Off-Page). But if you want's a paid traffic then you have to go with this type site like make money online etc.

Google introduce a feature to segment brand and generic paid search traffic in Google Analytics. It now makes easier for advertisers to segment brand & generic paid search terms into separate channels. This new Google Analytics features will help advertisers measures these important differences (brand and generic paid search) and more importantly, take action on these new insights.
