What Really These Cheap Traffic Offers Are? Scam Or Not?

Like you, I tried most of the so-called guaranteed traffic sources out there. But I’ll just speak about few of them now, some of the most obvious ones. I am sure you will recognize at least one if not all. Even some of them can be labeled scam.

Cheap Traffic Offers#1 – Traffic Exchanges

Don’t waste your time and money. Whether bees or alligators or whatever logo is used. Whether free or paid services you rarely get good results. That is because each one of those members is looking for the same thing like you…BUYERS.

#2 – Blast Your Ad To 1,000,000 Opt Ins

Blast all you want…nobody reads the ads.

#3 – Email 10,000s At The Push Of A Button

If I were you I would stay away from this one because you might get sued for spamming or even worse than that.

#4 – Viral Marketing

Viral marketing is not so bad. You will see some good results after a while. If you can stomach all those emails in your inbox from other viral members, then go for it. Though it is not suitable for me.

#5 – Guaranteed Signups

The companies tell you that these are people who have not been paid to signup to your program and that they are people who are looking to start an online business. If that is the case, then out of 25 signups, all are from the same US city, state and even same area code.

Furthermore, a group at a time sign up right behind each other. For example 3:01pm, 3:02pm or 3:03pm. And none of them clicked on the confirmation email. This type of practice has scam written all over it. There are too many traffic systems in cyber space to count. Some are scams and some genuine. Some even promise you to give 10K visits. But how do we know that we really get 10K visitors? Furthermore, If we do, they just stop by and go somewhere else. They do not purchase anything.

While reviewing this article I discovered that not everything is lost. Let’s not cry over spilled milk. The best low cost means of getting quality traffic, that I know of, is article submission. You are marketing to people who are interested in your product and to people who will buy your product. Some home businesses come with a free article submitter.

If you are not comfortable with writing your own articles, they will show you where and how to get your article written and submitted. Whether you write and submit the articles yourself or have them done for you, you can work from home and earn a substantial income using most affiliate programs.

  1. True i have also use some of these scams, but learned that their no substitute for hard work. the best way to get traffic that i found is going SEO marketing, link building and writing good articles that people could actually use and random junk.

  2. I think traffic should never be purchased. working hard on Search Engine Optimization drives genuine and profitable traffic towards a website.

  3. I agree the Cheap Traffic should be avoided as it not only effects the reputation of a website but also makes google adsense penalize a publisher

  4. When I get any of such emails… I simply direct to google and look for the results.. Whenever it is a scam, it is shown as a query from so many people… What next, I simply delete the email πŸ˜‰

  5. I've bought traffic in the past and signups. I've found these to be scams! I don't trust any of them anymore. And you can't risk it in the end because google may cull you from search results

  6. You are absolutely right. What ever sounds too good to be true and cheap, usually turns out to be a scam!

    After reading your post, I think it is time for me to get a few articles written again… I have been lazy. πŸ™‚

  7. All options mentioned in this article are methods that have been used successfully a long time ago but are now becoming outdated and replaced by new traffic generation techniques such as social networking.

  8. Great article. You really can’t be too careful these days with scams. When in doubt – Google it! It’s amazing what you can come up with!
