    So when you buy traffic, what are the methods that companies use to deliver the traffic to you?

    So far, I understand that people are using

    Expired domains: buying up domains that have expired and directing the traffic directly to you.
    Misspelled Domains: buying domains of commonly misspelled popular domains and directing the traffic to you.
    PTC (paid to click): Literally paying people to click on your links.
    Bots: Using software to click your links, making it look like real people have clicked them.

    Are there any other methods they typically use?

    I'm sure you could use SEO on sites and direct that traffic, or CPC, but these would be more expensive methods im sure.

    Paid traffic sucks. Till now i haven't seen paid traffic that actually converts (for cpa).

    All traffic has its uses. Understanding where it comes from can help you best use it.
    Even bot (or junk) traffic, can be good for getting view counts higher, if that effects its ranking.
    I'm simply trying to understand where it all comes from.

    Sorry pointy, for getting in your thread.

    I have a question: What is the best way to get loads of TRAFFIC, not conversions to my sites?

    I saw a couple of services here around, offering micro-niche site packs (which mean you get less traffic but higher conv rate).

    The idea is to get huge amounts of traffic, and just sell it, I think this might work...what do you guys think?

    Maybe there is some service around, offering such...I need your advice guys!

    pointy - youre the man!
