    Thanks for reading my question. Every month I look at my stats and I see thousands of people coming from websites like this:
    • trafficmonsoon.com
    • traffup.net
    • myadvertisingpays.com
    What are these "traffic monsoon" websites???

    Lots of clickbank affilaites are sending me traffic from these websites.

    They seem to be making a lot of money too, judging by how many sales they're getting from my website.

    Can someone tell me how this works?

    Thanks!

    these sites are selling you worldwide (and probably poor quality...) traffic for a very low budget.

    Main Problems:

    - This traffic is UNSPECIFIED (you don't know where your ads will be displayed)
    - You can't track where your ads are shown
    - this traffic is NOT TARGETED (Huge point...)

    Basically you pay for a traffic you cannot control at all.

    I've tried one of this service once Ezvisitors.com (i was convinced to give it a try by a Shxxxy YT video)..
    and of course I did not make ONE sale although this guy promised $100's/day minimum as you pay for ads to be displayed for one year or so....

    Honestly I feel (and mostly read negative comments...) that these sites provide a sort of traffic that is nearly comparable to SPAM and I doubt you can make any serious money from them

    So, you're a CB vendor, and your affiliates are sending you this traffic?

    Like izzo79 says, this is shitty traffic. Untracked, untargeted, unspecified (i.e. geographically, demographically).
    I personally wouldn't touch it.

    But if your affiliates are making you money... Well then great!

    Of course, if it is spammy, you could screen affiliates out, so as not to damage the image of your product.

    EDIT:
    Regarding myadvertisingpays, I was recently approached by someone who tried to recruit me. I said NOPE, because it's pretty much a Ponzi scheme. Essentially what happens is you buy "advertising packs", then you get paid to click on them.

    You're encouraged to buy as many advert packs as possible, but when you go to cash out... Your account gets shut down.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Yes I am the product creator and owner.

    Other Clickbank affiliates send me traffic.

    I'm just really confused about how these sites work.

    Like this one:

    http://www.buxinc.com/

    Lots of my traffic comes from this website too. Via clickbank affiliate links.

    I'm assuming these clickbank affiliates are buying ads on these websites, because they think that some small percentage of the people who are "paid to click" ads, will actually find my product interesting? And then buy it?

    It seems like a stretch, since all i sell is a keyword tool...

    ???

    There are IM's promoting CB products that can't think, read or even understand a guide on how to make profits with CB. So you wonder why they are using these shady traffic sources. I think your answer is here. If they don't make any profits for you just filter them out, you don't need them eat your bandwith.

    people are buying traffic from those sites to place an ad / or pasting the hoplink to promote any CB product (yours in this case).
    IMHO a bit like being a hunter inside a forest: but instead of seeking and waiting for the right deer to come, you would rather shoot all your munitions, no matter where, just hoping to hit something good.

    That's interesting.

    Ya the affiliates don't bother me. I don't care if they promote my product.

    I'm just really curious as to why somebody would use these websites.

    But i guess the reason is, because the CPC must be insanely low...

    Those sites are Traffic Exchanges/PTC Pay to Click/GPT Get Paid To sites.
    The traffic is almost worthless but cheap enough that some affiliates may use them to try to get the occasional sale.
    The affiliates that do this aren't actually very good at affiliate marketing, and are just playing a numbers game that if they send enough shit traffic they will hopefully make at least one sale.
    Remember this traffic costs you money and resources, while this shit traffic is being sent to your site it could be having a negative effect on your site depending on your hosting plan etc.
    If you are making sales from this shit traffic then good but check your refunds and chargebacks.

    Traffic Exchanges sucks. I played with it when I started affiliate marketing, thinking I can get sales from it. But it was a waste of time and money. Every affiliate newbie goes through, no doubt.

    The base of affiliate marketing is to build relationship between customers and vendors by giving quality content.

    The weird thing about PTC traffic is that occasionally someone will convert. It's almost always robots, but every now and again it's an actual human visitor. "Make money" type offers are the only ones that worked when I tried this method, but the ROI was no good.
