    Looking at this sales thread:
    https://flippa.com/2697097-hot-pets-niche-24-m-adsense-income-unique-design

    I noticed that the website has mainly traffic from social marketing sources and almost nothing from SE. Also, if you look at his profile history, all of his sites have the same traffic source and also profitable.

    Am i missing out any secret profitable traffic source? :confused:

    Well, i'm just going off of what I see... but his site has an "Avg. Time on Site" of 24 seconds which isn't that good. I also see that most visitors are using Internet Explorer, now this is just my opinion but with all of my sites, my most visitors are using FireFox, or Google Chrome.

    His most visitors are from the United States with only an Avg. of 20 second on the site. For me, this tells me that it is junk traffic. I might be wrong, but that is my opinion of how he is getting his traffic. He has sold a lot of sites, which is good for him... I am trying to get my numbers up there :)

    The traffic may be from bots that just show a time of few seconds on the website and then off. But still the sites are being sold. ;)

    Where you think ? xD
    I have seen this guy in flippa, and those like him, my advice never buy sites from guys who use proxys or have possible links to suspended accounts, :) just stick to your research my friend, :)

    proxy, proxy, but how he get adsense earnings ? think that he buy cheap traffic such as ****** or PTC sites and he get traffic plus real clicks from people - seems legit.
    As far as he will show to the new owner how to get PROFIT than i don't see any problem...

    No problem until your adsense account is banned. :D Anyone can fake an adsense screenshot or any other stat. Most scam sellers I've seen will pay $5 for junk traffic to boost awstats, alexa and then fake adsense screenshots. Anyone that knows adsense for more than a day, knows if your junk traffic clicks those ads your account will be gone quick and definitely before the next payout.

    Thanks for the awesome replies guys..but I noticed that none of the feedbacks reflected that their adsense acc has been banned but I got a string feeling that the source of traffic is very questionable..no doubt about it..

    If he buys ptc traffic he must be brave to try it on his acc for at least 24$..I wouldn't dare to do so..

    Thanks guys :)
