    Organic Visitors come from searches made through a search engine for a specific keyword(s). The paid visitors are bought via ads either by cost per click, cost per impression, etc. Paid is arguably at times lower in conversions for specific types of products and services (more than likely due to poor targeting and or even poorer sales copy. You can be paid via a cpm network like Adversal or a cpc network like Adsense. Adsense needs the visitor to click the ads in order for you to get paid, a cpm network generally will pay you a dynamic fee based on the quality of your visitors (measured by their ad engagement and if they buy or not).

    If you wanna drive traffic to your site you can use ppc as paid traffic but focus on getting your site ranked as organic traffic is way better in the longer run.

    Social media is the key to improving your organic traffic, my friend. Deliver the best product/service you can possibly muster, grow your audience, develop brand advocates, and let word of mouth carry your brand.

    organic - if you are building your site organically then it takes time to gain traffic and visitors
    paid - you can use this search to appear your site in the first page, this will help you to get visitors but you need to spend a lot for this search.

    Quality content should always receive some organic HITS, organic shares. The visitors comes to the website automatically when the content seems worth or it built to help anyway.

    PPC campaigns and other paid marketing resources bring us paid visitors. They are getting paid for visiting the website.
    To bring both we need time and investment.

    Organic traffic is always better as it's free search engines referrals. Paid traffic you can buy directly, invest in ads / ads network or using adwords, ppc etc. No, you wouldn't be paid simply because you have traffic to your site, you need to work on monetizing the traffic.

    Organic traffic:-


    Organic traffic that comes from unpaid sources of search engine like Google,yahoo etc. The more clear visitor will comes to your site by searching keywords on search engine like Google.com, Bing.com or Yahoo.com. etc.

    Some of the ways to drive organic traffic:-

    1. Provide content that others charge for (or that people feel like they should have to buy) and give it for free. For example I have a home security site and there are several sites that charge money for state licensing guides. So I went out and created similar content and provided it for free. I've gained considerable traffic from high quality content for free.

    3. Nick Patel said on his blog the other day that in the early stages of a blog quantity is more important than quality. Try publishing 2-4 posts each day. Reach out to other writers and find contributors for your blog.

    4. Effectively disseminate your blog articles across social media channels like: Google plus, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, StumbleUpon, DIGG, Reddit, and Delicous.


    Paid traffic:-

    Any traffic that you pay for, is called paid traffic.

    Some of the examples are :-

    * Pay per Click - PPC ( Google Adwords / Bing / Facebook / YouTube etc)
    * Pay Per View - PPV
    * Solo ads to other people's lists
    * Banner Ads etc.

    I'd also like to note here that your organic traffic and ranking seem to effect the prices you pay for PPC as well as your PPC slotting. Essentially PPC takes SEO into consideration in my experience.

    Paid traffic is traffic you pay for. This is generally from the paid ad sections above the organic listings in Google. To improve you're organic traffic, you need to get your site SEOed.

    Paid visitors may get quite expensive as your volume increases which is why organic visitors are preferred.

    Is there any other better way other than organic visits from social media and keyword search from SE?
