    Question Buying traffic

    Ok so I've thrown my bucket of cash at the SE's, (getting crawled everday by msn/google/yahoo and a few others) aquired some target word priority listings and thinking myself luck as google has me listed. Domain is under 4 months old.

    Problem is I'm getting a lot of US traffic, but I want UK traffic. I'm seriously thinking about buying traffic now. Targeted UK Gambling traffic.

    Are this guys legit?

    Do you know of place that I'm not going to get screwed?

    Or do you have any suggestions that may increase my UK traffic? I'm even debating about taking out hard copy ads in the UK.

    They are selling pop unders. Traffic Circuit is an affiliate site selling for a traffic broker. The question is, your site is popping under what? And, Have you ever been to a site that causes pop up hell?

    If you must buy traffic you are better off buying expired domain traffic. They use a redirect script istead of popups. So popup blockers don't block it. Usually low results, but at least you have a chance at getting a real visitor. I used to have a fair source, but it dried up.

    I think there has been some debate about purchased packages helping the alexa ranking temporarily, but bulk traffic just generaly does not return depositing players.

    These are just my opinions. I think everyone has a bulk traffic buy story to tell.

    Do not follow where the path may lead.
    Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail

    I have used www.adbuytraffic.com which uses expired domain traffic

    During multiple campaigns I have had results that varied hour to hour, day to day, week to week and so on. It kind of depends on the quality of the domains they own I guess. At one stage, I actually had an excellent ROI on a few packages and yet at others I found the quality to be really poor.

    Overall I agree with your sentiments, popunders are not great unless you have exit traffic from an active gambling portal in your target market.
    Have a wonderful day

    You can also buy adspace on yahoo.co.uk but it will of course cost a bit more.

    Using Overture UK yes. Although it will cost a lot lot more. For example to get the number 1 sponsored spot for the term Online Casino will cost you between 10 and 15 POUNDS STERLING per click. Also whilst it is quality traffic, you are liable to b e targetted by click fraud.

    One thing you can do straight away is, if you are after UK traffic, make sure your server is hosted there. This will give you a stronger chance of ranking in the .co.uk engines.

    Thanks for the heads up on this one Webzcas didn't realise that this would make a difference.


    In regards to Overture great idea I'm a little apprehensive though, as having to keep a hawks eye of traffic stats to ensure I'm not getting scammed by click fraud.

    10 - 15 is a bit out of my price range, but, even if I was going for a less popular keyword phrase @ say 50p - 1 a click, 20 bogus frauds a day spread out over a month is still a lot of money down the tube.

    Even though hard print is expensive, it may be a better option in the long run.

    I don't live in the UK, so I'm not even sure if hitting this market is legal.

    If anyone can offer some feedback on 'hard print' (magazines / newspapers) feedback it would be appreciated.

    I have had similar results with traffic purchases as well....sometimes ok sometimes nothing.

    I have also purchased from Traffic Circuit....same things....sometimes ok....sometimes not much of anything.

    I would be careful with the hard print ad buys....I have recently read an article that the crackdowns have begun on advertising for online gaming throughout the UK. Much of the article centered on the public transit adverts and such, but could be a sign of things to come....

    I will try to find the article and post a link.
