    Hi there!

    I think that getting a little bit of traffic to my site would really help me begin to rank SEO-wise. It would also help me make money through Google Adsense.

    ? Will I get in trouble/ will my site be punished if I pay for traffic?

    ? Is there any white hat intelligent way to pay for traffic?

    Any general knowledge on paid traffic would also be appreciated.

    Wishing you the very best,

    Zach

    Bought traffic will usually be untargeted, they may be from a certain geographical area, but they won't be interested in what is on your site. Most of the time, it's a big waste of money.

    There is no risk in buying some legit traffic for your site.Better use Solo ADs.

    Unless if the traffic seems not legit you might be in a trouble. Refer to Nathasha Nixon's Traffic Sales thread here at BHW Marketplace. I think it would be quite a good because the traffic are driven through pop unders and pop ups majorly as I remember.

    You should try Google Adwords and you can pay as little as just a few cents per visitor (if you target a wide range of visitors). Surely Google will not ban your adsense account for selling you crap traffic.

    PS: well, with google you never know :(

    The better strategy is to get links that drive traffic: links from Q&A sites, forum sig links, blog comments. For paid traffic, Facebook ads is cheaper than Adwards, or solo ads.

    Hey, first of all let me tell you that "google adsense program policy are very strict."
    once you are traced driving paid traffic on your adsense placed website or blog, you will be penalized in no time.
    Paid traffic is hardly organic. and bounce rate is also very high. so you must avoid buying paid traffic.

    Firstly i would like to say if you are unable to bring traffic of your site with seo you may look for buy targeted traffic. If you have new adsense account then it can be problem for buying traffic because adsense account may be banned for invalid click. So think yourself before buy traffic.

    We have dozens of our customers paying for traffic to their sites that also run adsense. They use it to raise CPM rates for their advertisers. Just speaking from experience it does work but certain niches perform better than others.

    If you are going to go for paid traffic then you should follow Adsense Arbitrage principle. Target HIGH CPC and High volume keywords and pay less for traffic. I am using that successfully.

    In my experience buying cheap untargetted traffic is a waste of time. Focus on a campain that will target the customer you are selling to. Google adwords is a great option, but it can be expensive if you do not focus on lower cpc keywords. Some niches are just plain expensive and this is a part of PPC advertising. It is hard to learn by someone telling you what to do, so don't be afraid to get your hands dirty. Do your research, test, test, learn, succeed.. Do not forget the learn step..
