    There are journeys on this forum about ads/traffic arbitrage.

    It means to buy cheap traffic and sell it expensive. But i didn't understand process of buy/sell.

    Where to buy and where to sell?

    Im starting traffic arbitrage soon so far i havnt even gotten my site because of payment problems through paypal or ehost idk

    Buy through facebook ads or any other place where you can get cheap cpc and sell through anywhere where you can get high cpc adsense. You are essentially paying less for your traffic with ads than you will earn by them clicking on ads... basically

    You got the concept right.
    You buy traffic and try to sell it for a more expensive price.
    Traffic can be acquired through various sources: social media, ad networks and others, you don't sell traffic itself, but you monetize it by showing ads and being paid for clicks, actions, impressions etc.
    Traffic lands on your site with ads and you paid for its engagement with ads.

    You dont sell it you just have ads on your website that will earn you more than you paid for them.

    You're gonna need to experiment, OP.

    I can tell you that to get return from Adsense from Facebook traffic you're gonna need to hit some unexplored goldmine, unless you go viral and get absurdly cheap cpc.

    Buying 100 visitors for U$ 3 to sell 1000 pageviews for U$ 4 does not give you enough margin. First, getting 3cent clicks for valuable targetted traffic will not be easy, secondly you assume an average 3 pageviews per visitor - that's some quality traffic. Again it all depends on the quality of your content, but those numbers seem a bit tight.

    Traffic arbitrage is not easy, because Google and Facebook are your two main competitors and they milk it as much as possible before the traffic gets to you.

    If you do this as a learning process and you come out even, I'd say it was a great experience.

    I've seen folks get major credit card bills for CPC traffic with no ROI. So do set daily limits, target, target, target.... and take it slowly at first, it's easy to make a big loss at it if you mess up. Not an easy biz to get started.

    So consider getting out even an initial success. Just my 2 cents about this.

    Ive heard both traffic arbitrage is the basis but its really about promoting click bait articles that will get a ton of exposure and people will share it and hopefully something goes viral. It may not work but from what ive seen its really about what you put into it. You have to put the work and research in. success dosnt happen overnight

    Exactly.

    If you manage to make an article go viral, and the article is well monetized, you can hit it big in a single day.
