    I am a new guy. I work on SEO but need to increase traffic by buying it. Are there any 2nd or 3rd tier providers who generally provide targeted traffic from real people?

    I just read a review on 7 search and now I don't want to use them. It seems it is a waste of time and money with most of the commentors on the thread agreeing so I don't think it was just one persons opinion.


    To test the waters I tried some gigs on fiverr and on SEO Clerks. They asked for KWs and I gave them but, no one who comes to my site is coming to it using those keywords. The gig providers are using some long tail stuff that is barely related and has no intent to buy.

    I can see what KWs on GWT and they are not the ones I gave them. Also, bounce rates are all over. Yandex metrica says 26% and G says 81%. page depths of 2.13 and approximately 30 seconds on site Y & G seem to agree on. With Google only measuring about 1/2 of the traffic and Yandex pretty much counting it all.

    I am brand new so those are the metrics I noticed, I bet a pro would know a heck of a lot more.
    Anyway, this ain't gettin it.

    I would like to avoid any more of this sort of thing.

    Who, in the starving new guy range, is a decent choice for ppc or any kind of targetted traffic. and who will actually use my KWs.
    all in the 2nd or 3rd tier category.

    For cash reasons I can't go top shelf. non premium is probably also a good way to learn but mostly it is because of being poor.

    Also, I use Long Tail Pro to help me make posts. Can I use LTP to help me choose KWs to buy with ppc. Is there a guide, how do I know which ones. In SEO I am targeting KWs I can rank for but now I have another purpose. It has to be close but I am thinking there must also be some differences, ones that i cannot afford to learn the hard way.

    Thanks for considering this post.

    Also, it doesn't have to be ppc, I think expired domains, if the right KWs are used to find it would also be helpful. Maybe even traffic from the right classified ads.
    I am willing to experiment. I am new, I don't know what I am doing.

    I need addiction recovery traffic.

    Is there a reason why you are avoiding Adwords and Bing? And are you wanting display networks or do you not have any preference?
