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 the good old organic traffic you earn by 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/bot 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.

Another great article of yours. I do enjoy coming on your website often as it is filled with excellent information.
On the subject of buying traffic, in my early days online I used to buy traffic from freelancers but later discovered that they were 99% fake people clicking on my websites. I have learned from my mistakes and never bought any traffic after that.
Looking forward to your future articles.
I considered and tried the paying traffic scene. And nothing good came from the experience. All the hoops you had to go through are hoops you can do without or do for yourself. The program you offer here sets a real foundation for any online aspirations one might be considering. Your game will only be as good as you are trained.
Hi Marion, I agree that all traffic is not equal. As you state, even if you BUY traffic, you can waste that money, because people sell traffic that really is not going to help you in any way for leads, conversions, or profits. I went through Fiverr and really saw that it was money thrown away. I have had much better luck using facebook paid ads, and although it is easy and quick to get started, it would be smart to take some training prior to spending a lot of money on Facebook or ANY paid traffic I think! Cheers! Dave : )
Great advice Dave. I definitely agree with you that it’s a good idea to take some training before you embark on any advertising campaigns.
