There are many legitimate ways to increase the traffic to your website including PPC (Pay Per Click), Adwords, social media and other forms of advertising. And there’s good old organic traffic from publishing interesting and relevant articles on your website.
Not All Bought Traffic is Legit
Buying traffic from dubious third party sources is usually a waste of money. You’re not getting real live people who are interested in your niche. They are not going to buy your products or services. They are most likely not even humans, just a script that fakes visiting traffic. And even when you’re getting clicks they are most likely using click bots.
If you have Adsense or a similar source of revenue then a sudden spike in traffic could lead to your account being removed. Google Adsense usually considers bought traffic to be fraud or at least dubious.
