    I have short question for those who got banned from CPA networks...

    Did they have any organic traffic ?

    I ask this because im starting one blog which will be easy to optimize for one keyword that has around 4k searches monthly but im not happy with that number...

    So, how does CPA networks look at sites that most of their traffic get from facebook, reddit, digg etc... and "BUY TRAFFIC" ?

    It is simple... i can buy traffic for cheap and if only 5% of people complete survey of those who came with bought traffic i will have a profit... I'll get back my money i gave for traffic + have some profit...

    Could you get banned because of it or you guys do it also ?

    The CPA networks biggest affiliates buy a fortunes worth of traffic every day/month. There is no problem with buying traffic but from the sound of what you are doing it will be very poor untargeted traffic and will never convert at 5%.

    Well im very good at making people interested. Im also good at NLP and psychology.

    The website im talking about is about something non-usual stuff. And if you wanna see it the survey will pop-up.

    So it is all about making someone interested "hey what is so special about it, ill spend 20 sec of time to see it, no problem"

    When i would buy traffic i would go for something targeted and about my niche ofc.


    Anyway, since you mentioned it 5% is hard to get... Can ppl here also answer what are they percentages ? Out of 1000 unique visitors, how many completed surveys they get ?

    That bought traffic never covnerts, not even 1% cause its all pop up or under traffic to people who aren't even looking for your survey. Don't waste your money, instead find some related keywords to your CPA, learn some SEO and get your site up on first page of google, then you will get your 5% conversion.

    If it's real traffic and real people genuinely signing up for offers, then buy traffic to your heart's content as long as it's profitable. There's absolutely nothing wrong with buying traffic per se, only with incentivizing people to sign up by paying them.

    However as stated above, if the traffic is basically untargeted then it doesn't matter how good you are at copywriting, you'll have difficulty turning a profit.

    I asked because i saw people here are selling traffic for rly cheap prices ...

    I saw some prices are like 6-7$ and you get 10 000 real unique visitors (not fake because too many people are happy here with what they got as far as i have seen)...

    So out of 10k unique visitors i hope around 50 to complete the surveys so i get back my 6-7$ + make some profit... 50 out of 10 000 is not a big number... it is 0,5% and with 50 surveys i can get at least 50$... which equals 43-44$ profit...

    Tho that is only a theory :)... I'll try this soon and let you know if it was worth it. But before that ill try with the free traffic... social networks and so on :)

    lol you won't get anything near those numbers from generic international traffic. If you could, we'd all be millionaires.

    Those people are selling traffic to either dilute a high ctr or to fake an alexa rank or build PR and people who use it for that are of course happy, but your own theory is flawed, none is going to convert on CPA or adsense and you won't get any of your initial investment back.

    OK... Tnx!

    So what you people suggest is to find many micro niche sites and get money that way or...

    Offer good/interesting information on websites but to have surveys there so if ppl wanna see information they were searching for they have to fill the surveys...

    So it is possible to do it even without SEO like...

    Write some good article, put it on reddit and ppl who are interested enough will click on it (there is possible to manipulate reddit scores lil bit and get visitors that way, visitors that are interested in what you put there)
