    My previous thread about Traffic Arbitrage was closed (I asked someone to provide email, which is against forum rules), but I still receive a bunch of messages from BHW users about my thread and asking questions about their sites and conducting business.

    Therefore I decided to open this thread to continue answering your questions publicly as it's easier, better and will help more people rather than do it in private via PM.

    Here you can ask questions about traffic arbitrage, your sites, and anything related to the topic. I am not an expert (even though some people call me that), but I reached success in this business and I would be happy to share my experience with you by answering questions.

    Just read all through your last thread and I must say it just seemed like you kept repeating yourself over and over again.What I believe People wanted to know was:-
    Get a domain
    Select a Niche
    Send loads of quality traffic to your site
    -buy traffic from here or there etc
    Apply for ad networks And try to get a ROI for traffic purchased

    But like you said it's not a method thread just a question and answer thread so.....

    The purpose of the thread is to share experience by answering questions, so if I receive similar questions I do provide similar advice.
    There's no method's here that can make someone millionaire overnight, at least for now :)

    Facebook & Native ads, but some of my projects do not need paid traffic as generate good traffic volumes of organic and social media traffic.
    Lately started working with RhythmContent.

    No need, you can read it by clicking on the link above.

    appreciate old thread re-launching, it was interesting read

    i started to promote my site on FB ads 1 week ago to test how it goes and got 0.02-0.03$ clicks right from start.
    don't have any ads on the site as it doesnt have enough traffic to be accepted into ad networks yet:D

    thats a great start!
    depending on what your site is you can try to make FBIA apply for Audience Network and monetize your FB traffic with FB ad network.

    Not using anything for cheap clicks and not looking to get cheap clicks.
    SEO can bring clicks for free, if that's what you mean, but for the rest you need quality.

    You keep saying you get lots of organic traffic. That's great, but it has nothing to do with traffic arbitrage. Arbitrage = Buy traffic and sell it for more than you paid for. Getting organic traffic is just getting a traffic. If arbitrage helped with ranking of your domains, it is just SEO. And if you are only depending on getting organic traffic from arbitrage, then you are doing it wrong. It's the lowest benefit of arbitrage in my opinion because that means you aren't really making big money. And trust me - when you do arbitrage for a big money, you don't care about organic traffic because it can not even come close to it. Ranking always happens and after driving big traffic to lots of articles you find out that it generates descent passive income.

    Sincerely,
    Guy who does it for living for 5 years now.

    P.S Kudos to you for buying from FB and making it profitable.

    I have number of own sites as well as sites that I work on, so traffic volume and earning is different on each.
    Some sites bring few hundred, others few grand per day.

    Traffic arbitrage is exchanging traffic for money. It doesn't really matter how this traffic was acquired.
    Also, from what you say, I see that you have very limited knowledge/understanding and experience. Just to give you an example - I run a site with over 2 million visitors per month, and 10M+ page views. Site didn't buy a single user. Ever. All 2 millions are organic - search. Judging by time on site and page views per visit I can say that traffic likes the site and I like this kind of quality of traffic. Site makes over $300k a year just of 2 banners.

    This is not Traffic Arbitrage because traffic landed from SEO? Of course it is.

    Buying traffic and monetizing it - is the easiest and fastest way, I agree with that. If you'd read my previous thread or some of my comments in other traffic arbitrage related threads - I always suggest to buy traffic, especially if the site is brand new, but not all sites need that. If site depends only on paid traffic and nobody else has interest in it unless you trick users to click your clickbait title ad, to only make money out of bounces then your business won't live long and this is not proper traffic arbitrage.

    You can only buy bots or completely irrelevant traffic "low". Why would I do something that will harm business and ban site from networks?

    That's great you are getting traffic from SEO, but it isn't traffic arbitrage. Then anything is traffic arbitrage, because it involves people coming to your website? Then any traffic method is traffic arbitrage.

    According to investopediaCom: Arbitrage is the simultaneous purchase and sale of an asset to profit from a difference in the price.

    I'm not planning to argue with you what arbitrage is.


    And NO. Making profit from arbitrage doesn't involve necessarily buying traffic for low and they are not bot. You can't monetize bot traffic for long.
