    I have some questions regarding traffic buying and I believe I should be all clear before I actually go into this direction big time:


    1. Is it OK to buy traffic for a website where I have AdSense enabled? If yes, are all the traffic sources accepted (Pop-under, direct etc.)? I am very cautious as I saw myself getting banned from HubPages Earning Program after I bought some traffic for it. The AdSense is still running well though.
    2. Can someone please name a few good traffic providers who sell traffic that is AdSense safe?
    3. Other than AdSense, what use of all these traffic can I make?

    I searched for all these questions in this forum, but didn't get a direct answer. I hope that some fellow marketers will help me out this time.

    1. No, it's not.
    2. There's no such traffic - buying traffic is against AdSense T&C's.
    3. Well, if it's real traffic, you can just boost your website's popularity or get them to do your CPA offers etc.

    If buying traffic is not allowed, that means I cannot use AdWords for a blog where I display AdSense advertisements, right? Apart from that, any kind of media buying should not gel well right?

    Not sure about AdWords, but you probably can't do it. And yeah, they only allow natural traffic, whether it's via social networks, direct traffic or organic traffic. You might get away with fake traffic few times, but they will get you sooner or later.
