One of the most pressing things is just how much does traffic cost? How much should I be paying? I am looking for quantity rather than any "quality" of the visitors.
I know about adwords etc. for purchasing traffic. But there appear to be companies out there where you can purchase a lot of traffic very cheaply. Are they for real?Search for "buy traffic" on google and it brings up a fair few.
And of course - it better to build up traffic over the long term etc. But would still be very interested to hear from anyone that knows about the "traffic for sale" marketplace.
Sign up for a Google Adwords account and see how much you have to bid in order to get traffic for your preferred keywords. The rate is all over the map -- maybe $0.10 a click to $25 a click, depending on what keywords you want traffic for.
On my sites I sell advertising for anywhere from $2.35 CPM to $470 CPM (CPM = cost per thousand times the ad is shown). The disparity is because some topics are worth more than others.
Just as many as I can get, as cheap as I can get.
There are companies out there where you can buy, say 100,000, visitors quite cheaply. Such bulk buying can make hits quite cheap it would seem. My only concern is that these companies are actually brokering hits by bots, maskarading (spelling?) as real visitors.
This is my greatest fear as it could get me in a lot of trouble with adsense - banned if the robots click on the ads. With so many sharks in this traffic business I really need a good recommendation for a traffic company. I cannot really chose one myself. I need one "tried and tested". Would be great if someone could help - a recommendation via sticky would be very gratefully received.
