    obviously it won't convert but if I just want traffic to make my site look good when applying to a network is it okay to buy targetted trafic?

    adwords is good for this kind of thing, but its not as simple as it sounds. you need to research research research and have some money to blow because 99% of the time your first test ads don't convert enough to profit.

    there's some good threads around the forum about ppc to cpa, i've been doing a lot of research into this myself

    Your new in this game and you want to start making money by spending money. Not , a good idea. You should start with free traffic sources like youtube and search engines.

    Its safer and it cost you nothing. Using this sources you will learn alot, than you can imagine.

    Think about it.

    Are you serious? How would anyone know if you site is doing any good, its the search engines not the traffic. Make sure you site is indexed and am sure you will be fine.:p

    Dont buy traffic, except for specific - well thought out reasons.:cool:

    I am not sure how you hide referals but have seen a few times , that if you dont hide referrals for ADSENSE will ban you .

    To hide the triffic sorce you need to create a landing page and and send all the traffic to it.

    if they go to the sellers page from your landing page, then the referrer will show as your landing page to the cpa company. there will be no problem, provided your landing page doesn't have anything the cpa company deems against their terms on it.

    Sites likes those are unlikely to get you any conversions, and are not good in the long run.

    Use higher quality traffic to be able to learn how to optimize your landing pages, do split tests, etc.

    Welcome to Black Hat World........................
    Home Page:
    Paid traffic is all I use.

    do not pay attention to people that say it does not work.
    The junk traffic for $10 for 1000 visitors...yes.. that type will not work.
    I agree with that.
    But there is quality traffic that you can buy and it converts.


    Seo takes time.
    Paid Traffic takes money.
    Money is equivalent to time.

    Either you can spend money and make money fast and furious with paid traffic.
    or Spend time... and build up with SEO with long term returns and no expense for traffic.

    Paid traffic allows you to fail fast and recover fast.

    SEO let's you fail slow and recovery is slower but it's practically free.

    Paid Traffic takes a lot of out of the box thinking.
    SEO takes a lot of going by the book and grunt work.

    ^^^What virus said

    I also make most of my living from PPC. Search through some of my past posts/threads OP because I've got quite a few where I give out a bunch of my PPC secrets/strategies.

    It's a tough nut to crack, but once you do, the money is huge.

    It was written by Perry Marshall.

    It's a good read, but still doesn't cover all a person needs to know in order to dominate with PPC. First hand experience with testing, testing, and more testing does though.
