    Hi all,

    I wanted to bring traffic to my site, so first I want to test some traffic gig in SEOclerks. I bought a 1000 USA adult visitors to my xxx toy site for $3. The seller adverting that his traffic is real human traffic, not bot or fake like others! I think if it is real then $3 for 1000 UVs is too cheap, since I need to pay at least $50 - $100 if I use Adwords or other PPC networks.
    I did received traffic to my site, when I check my Histats, it showed some 1100 visitors. But when I check Geolocation, there are only 5 visitors (they are seem to be my regular US visitors, not from the paid traffic), when I checked referrer, there are NO referrer(blank).

    I think his traffic must be fake or bot, as if they are real visitors, there must be Geolocation, visitor's IPs and referrers.

    I claimed this to the seller and he answered:"I don't know about referrers but I can assure USA traffic is being sent, a couple here and there may be other as different sytems are determining what they think the country is but it's certainly USA and the final report will show 1,000+ specifically of USA."

    And here is his final report:

    Hi,

    Thank you for choosing my traffic Services!

    Traffic is delivered from a large network consisting of thousands of websites in over 200 different categories/niches through various different methods.

    The category and geo target you select will determine how and where the traffic is delivered specifically.

    1,200+ visitors have been delivered via this shortened URL:

    Analytics for the shortened URL:
    http://goo.gl/#analytics/goo.gl/ms4kVy/all_time

    If you wouldn't mind taking a moment to positive feedback it is always greatly appreciated and really helps me out.
    "

    I checked the analytics but can't know exactly about this. Can anyone take a look at the Analytics and tell me if it is real or fake traffic?

    Thank so much!

    I CAN GUARANTEE that 99% (but probably 100%) that all this traffic is just fake bots. All those people who claim it is real, they lie. Everyone who sell traffic (not a "trusted" company), 99% of them sell fake crap bots (useless bandwidth and money waste traffic).

    Trust me, the views are fake. How can anyone sell real human views for so cheap. 1000 for $3 is definitely fake traffic.

    What was your expectation for this traffic? You know this sort of traffic is normally meant for only increasing Alexa rank and so on.

    real or fake, you won't get much for $3!

    i know there used to be 1 very good traffic service on bhw, but I don't know if it still exists.

    When you buy $3/1k traffic - you are almost 100% sure it is fake. It just depends on what purpose you would like to use the traffic for. I.E. if you want to increase your sales, forget it but if you want to have a better stats - that's for you.

    If I understand it correctly = there was real traffic, but only in way of US proxies.
    My question: How much value have traffic for SERP?

    Can this really help the web or could Google find it and punish it?
    Is it detectable (the proxies and stuff....)?
