    Hey guys,

    I don't wanna spam the thread of akany that much with my findings. So i will start my own.

    I have been looking in this method since akany posted his journey.
    I'm trying to figure out what works the best for me. (dont just copy but find your own twist)

    At this moment i use;
    Plugrush - To sell traffic
    Trafficshop - To buy traffic (i want to sell to them but my page keeps getting rejected)
    Juicyads - To sell traffic
    Traffixxx - To buy traffic

    I currently run some tests and yesterday i made my first profit. (I tried with only mobile traffic)

    Bought Traffic.png <- Bought traffic | Sold traffic -> Sold Traffic 2.png Sold Traffic.png

    I used 2 networks to sell to, since juicyads has an easy link to redirect traffic that is accepted i used this as my first redirect.
    Currently my setup is like this; Buy at network A -> Send to my own site 1 -> Redirect to my own site 2 -> When traffic hits my own site 2 it will be redirected to juicyads -> The traffic that gets not accepted will redirect to site 2 sub like site.com/sub2 -> from there on it will be redirect to plugrush.

    I want to know if this is safe? I have read about meta refresh but don't what it is exactly. Maybe someone can help me out on that?

    Happy to be the first one to wish you all the best in your journey! :)
    Followed akany's thread aswell and will do the same to this one.

    I would suggest to buy also from exo and maybe ero. Exo has much more traffic than rest.

    About your question:
    Seems like akany does it like this: Buy at network A -> Send to site1.com-> Redirect to site1.com/something -> when traffic hits site1.com/something it gets redirected to juicyads.

    You have combine the sites with the networks. Something like this:

    Selling Juicy -> site1.com
    Selling Plugrush -> site2.com
    Selling Exo -> site3.com

    and so on. For return URL you can use the same pages.

    Do you have any method to test how much traffic is bots?
    I'm thinking that would help you prioritize networks.

    That's really good ROI, even though the numbers don't seem all that "extravagant".

    Keep up the good work OP!

    No i have not at this moment. I started with buying from trafficshop and sell to trafficxxx but there was lots of trash traffic.
    This seems to work fine.

    If someone can help me install metarefresh on wordpress please PM me.

    Good luck. Love these arbitrage models. Obviously your volume exchange is low, so you don't want to just deliver a ton of traffic out of nowhere. 2:1 revenue is really solid though, so hopefully you can get some payments in so you can start ramping up the traffic.

    How do you know if traffic is not accepted??

    Further, hang on to this and as a cliche: scale it up.

    Juicyads decide to accept the traffic or not. If they not accept it, it will be returned to another url you give them.

    Also i will scale this up. But dont be to greedy! I will scale first slowly to 5k visitors. In small steps so i got the time to ultimate my setup and to not get attention from the networks.

    its on your stats where you selling your traffic... if you buy 1k traffic but only seen 600 on the traffic stat were you are selling it then there is 400 traffic loss that's why you should setup a return url which is different from the url where you buy traffic at and has different network to avoid useless loop..

    I have found out finally how to redirect traffic loss from plugrush so I need to setup a new domain for that one.
    If there's anyone with a simple tube script for free i can use please pm me.
    Also i'm in need for some technical help. If you are interested in helping me maybe we can have a chat on skype. PM me for my skype details.

    UPDATE

    It seems that my setup is not safe. I just got banned from Juicyads.

    Edit: I think the problem is that my pages are not ''real'' enough. Also when my traffic gets redirected from my site to point B it doesn't show any views on my first domain. So I think that's a problem.

    Did you not read Akany's entire thread ?
    Honestly I'm kind of fed up with people trying to copy paste a method as presented and forget half the thing in it. Especially the thing that would make it safe.

    i'm pretty sure you didn't cloak your traffic source and you just got banned because you sold them traffic not coing from your site.

    I did read his whole thread, and I know i missed out on some points. I'm writing this thread just to show my progression.
    I'm working on cloaking my traffic source this week/next week.

    Ok, i've been working on cloaking my webpage and it's almost done! I will run a test tomorrow or this weekend. (with only mobile traffic, since i got no scripts running yet to define the traffic)
    So let's see how this goes! Maybe i can finally earn my first dollars.

    Also i'm planning to use tube site with vids on it from a member on this forum. So i'm gonna add more domains if this test is working for at least 1 payout of minimum 25dollar.
