    I am in desperate need of traffic/sales. My SEO isn't fantastic, but I can't afford to be sandboxed so im going to continue backlinks slowly from now on, My ranking when down and I wonder if Scrapebox caused it.

    Anyway there are a lot of fiverr gigs claiming they will send REAL traffic to your site. Fake? Are they using bots and lying about it? what do you think.

    I would easily be able to spot referral data and see for myself. But if some dick uses a bunch of proxies on my site google won't be happy, that is a serious risk lol.

    Unfortunately, this is what the majority (95%) of people who sell you "real" traffic do:

    They iframe your site on theirs, so even though it looks like you are receiving real visitors, NONE are seeing your website.

    If you want some real visitors, you should try PTC networks (search for some good ones), or try ******

    It's probably redirect traffic. Basically a real user tries to go to a "dead" domain and is redirected to your site.

    From my experience, it is almost worthless. Most of the traffic doesnt lead to conversions. Plus, google may suspend your AdSense account if you have ads on your page

    All of the above. In the end they aren't worth your money.

    Also, I've heard that the gigs that brag about sending visitors who "like to click on ads" have ended up getting many banned from Adsense, etc.

    Exactly. Many people think "PTC" and "Referral Traffic" is the worst type of "real visitors" you can get, but in reality those are HIGH QUALITY in comparison to what people are really receiving. Why send visitors to one website, when I can send visitors to 50+ at once?

    Paid traffic like domain redirects and ptc is garbage if you want to make money from it, it is good for boosting Alexa ranking and impressions, well maybe even impressions are worthless from this. The only kind of paid traffic that can cover is from email marketing.

    Anyone who thinks he/she will get sales with 5 bucks worth of traffic is a bit naive. Traffic will only make you money if it is real and TARGETED. Otherwise it's just a waste of money.

    There's no such thing as push button do nothing get sales. You have to do it the right way and work hard to see results.

    You have to understand that you get what you pay for, nobody would be selling that much for that cheap if it was of some real value.

    "I am in desperate need of traffic/sales." that's the problem right there because
    That sort of mindset tells me that you want to cut corners to get sales
    or i'm looking for the silver bullet this is a NEWBIE mentality.

    if you want to make some money from your website then you need to get
    serious.

    keywords research, genuine link building, SEO etc.. most of your sales will
    come from the search engines so start doing the things that search engines
    like .

    there are plenty of guides here.

    Just remember the old adage... "if its too good to be true, it probably is"... you don't even need to really ask the question if its a scam, it blatantly is

    You got jacked either way paying $5 for 1K even if it was targeted. I honestly wouldn't trust any services on fiverr on a site that i gave a crap about.
