Purchasing traffic from online businesses can be very difficult. There are many of these websites selling traffic, but it is not easy to decide who to buy from.
Many of these websites can be found by doing a Google search for “buy website traffic”, or something similar. Most of them are resellers who buy traffic from wholesalers and redistribute the traffic at a higher price to webmasters.
Some sites offer general web traffic, and others may offer category or regional targeted traffic. Other traffic websites may even offer adult and casino specific packages, because general traffic does not allow these types of sites.
Any type of traffic that is not general web traffic is sold at a much higher price, because it is harder to collect and sort.
There are some very odd things about most traffic purchasing websites. It seemed that even though each site design was different, the general idea was the exact same thing, and even most of the text is copied word for word. Many of the websites have both numerous spelling errors and severe grammatical mistakes indicative of bad translation from another language.
The site designs were also flawed, such as a missing purchase confirmation page. Many sites do not even list an email address, but instead have a form to fill out and submit questions to them with. This is a bad means of communication and is used to hide the company’s real email address.
Many of these sites are scams, based in China or other foreign countries. They will take the money, send fake “visitors”, and become impossible to contact. This article lists the main details to watch out for, and to helps webmasters and site owners avoid trouble when marketing their site.
Here are a few main points to take note of on a traffic website before making a purchase:
Look for website Design and Content: Is the website well made? Are there sections for support/contact, FAQ, about the site, terms/disclaimer, and a straightforward ordering form?
Spelling and Grammar: Does the website read well? Does it look badly translated and poorly designed? Are there obvious mistakes on main pages?
Contact and Support: Test the customer support, ask a few questions before making a purchase. Do they respond quickly and answer all your questions?
Check their Refund Policy: Will they give you a refund if you are not satisfied? What are their terms for refunds?
Are they based in a Reputable Area?: Is the company based in the USA, Canada, Europe, or is it in China, Russia, or another country where scams a prevalent?
Compare Prices: A very low price can be just as bad as a very high price. A low price suggests a possible scam, and a high price suggests a ripoff.
Check Traffic Delivery Timeframe: Do they guarantee that the traffic you purchase will be delivered in 30 days?
All these points are things to take into consideration before buying traffic for a website. A legitimate web traffic providing website can be a great marketing partner, and generate a lot of money, but a illegitimate one is nothing but a scam.
