    Are paid traffic offers a scam?

    I have seen a lot of paid traffic offers lately, and I'm wondering if they are a scam? If not, what information can you offer on using paid traffic services, and will it get me banned from adsense, etc?

  2. I've done a couple of tests, and both resulted in zero "human" visitors and zero revenue.

    I wouldn't even think about buying traffic unless they gave me 30,000 images of the people visiting the site with them holding up a sign that has the words "yo dawg"... or there name. Then I may, you never know.

    I have tried this method in the past - buying traffic from websites, that is.
    Absolutely nothing came of it. Do you hear me? Nothing! Don't waste your time.

    One thing I do recommend, however, is any sort of traffic exchange. I use EasyHits4U.
    It brings me a nice amount of human traffic, and I've had multiple occasions where that traffic converted.

    Anyway, I just posted a list of ways to get traffic for free on my blog today:

    Organic traffic alone can be useful to you...

    Buying traffic will not help you to improve your sales or profit....

    Buying traffic, if its real, might give you a few ad clicks, but it cant justify the expenditure i wouldn't have thought
