    Anyone ever purchased traffic from choker? Or.. purchased it from anyone?

    I'm thinking about buying some for my adult sites. For some categories traffic is like 5 bucks per 1000 uni hits.

    I gave you some ways to get traffic, it takes time especially with porn, you have to build trust with the customers is the best way I can put it, porn sites come and go, so people like to see that the site is established, it is not something that will happen over night

    Buying traffic isn't buying conversions.

    Most of it isn't even relevant.

    and then when you go to sell the site you can't say it's 100% legit traffic that was driven to it

    word. i bought 6k clicks just to see what the fuss is about. I was tailing the logs of my box during traffic generation hours. It just looks like one big dos attack lol. 6k visits alright, but 10 click thrus only, probably natural traffic.

    Buying traffic is the biggest waste of money. There's only one reason to buy traffic, and that's to hide the rest of your traffic.

    wat?!

    Buying traffic is one of the easiest ways to scale something that works. If you have a site that makes x amount off x amount of visitors that come from natural search traffic, if you know your target audience you can easily increase that traffic which means increasing your revenue.

    Of course there is crap traffic sources and you do need to know your target audience. Best to stick to the big 3 for the best quality traffic though.

    I was talking buying traffic in general. I've never heard of or seen any 'bought' traffic that converted, or even interacted with the site they were dropped on. Maybe I missed the point, or haven't seen this miraculous converting traffic that people sell. (aside from adwords/ppc traffic that is)
