    Hi guys,
    I created an adult blog a month ago and I'm spending a lot of time gathering info on seo and all those do's and don't's.
    I don´t have any kind of ads or pop-ups/unders, only download links. I was wondering if buying traffic is a good choice.

    if you are buying traffic, make sure the traffic is relevant to your niche, and what are you currently making $$$?

    I'm making almost nothing right now. My current goal is to build up traffic by providing quality content, spreading the word using watermarked images and backlinks, doing some basic seo stuff, etc.
    As soon as I get more content I may consider to buy a seo package.
    The thing is that I don't know if buying traffic, even targeted one, will bring any benefits or may even hurt.

    If you are doing targeted traffic, all I see is benefits :) You tried custom audience Facebook ads?

    Waste of money. The best quality traffic is from video. If the video is of a person, the traffic will feel like they met the expert, and will then purchase. People buy from people.

    In my opinion, it is okay to buy traffic. On the other hand, make sure that the traffic you are going to buy is targeted - one that is specific for the kind of niche that you have chosen to pursue. Otherwise, it would just be a waste, not only of money, but of effort, as well.

    OK. I'll buy some targeted traffic and see how it goes.

    For what I have read around here, exoclick seems to be unreliable. There are too many complaints.

    Videos are the way to go
    start building your audience uploading watermarked videos on Adult websites.
    mentions on Facebook pages related to the same audience
    Reviews on blogs related to adult niches
    maybe a Tumblr account to gt traffic from there

    Hope it helps

    I've been doing some of that but I have a long road ahead

    Monetizing isn't the priority. I want to build up traffic 1st. What I would like to get from paid traffic is exposure, some returning visitors out of the thousands that are sent to my blog and maybe a small SE improvement.

    If you haven't had a monetization plan in mind, traffic won't do you any good.

    Buying traffic will definitely give you advantages, but there are a lot of factors to be filtered before buying it. Make sure the provider is legit and giving you real traffic. It should come from your niche related sites which will convert well for you. Do your due diligence before committing anything.

    Rather than buying then traffic. Better you could targeted the audience who are all interested in Adult Categories.
    1. Pick the Adult forum (which gets high traffic, for example., xnxx similar to that) participate frequently in that and promote your site. its one type of getting targeted traffic from the adult forums.
    2. Started a Group / Community and post the images along with the site links. It is the easy way to click your website.
    3. In your website, try to add more videos and images. which means the visitors to stay long in your website.

    If you need more information, to promote adult niche. PM me, i will suggest you. Hope it will helps. Cheers!!!
