Well obviously the main benefit is the audience you will receive by doing so. Let's say you hold a business, but what would be the point if no one knows about it. You'll gain lots of profit by advertising your website, thus gaining a sustainable audience. So I think it's important to pay for traffic for you website. It will appear more often in the search engines.

I agree with you. Traffic whether bought or organic will improve your sales. If the traffic is not bots then it is good.

@stbrians If the traffic is humans then it's obviously great, but sometimes bots improve the overall search engine results as well. I'm personally against it, but I know those who wouldn't mind bots at the start of their business, just so they would be able to get things running.

Agreed. Assuming you place an ad on a blog which attracts people who might buy what you sell, the traffic you get from that site will probably get you sales more quickly. That most certainly is one of the primary benefits of paying for traffic.

Definitely getting traffic is the sure way of getting ones site known and be in the faces of people,no blog or any site can do well without traffic,it like the air the site needs to breathe. So it important to have traffic whether bought or not.

This is a great analysis as others just want to get traffic naturally, it would be hard especially if your site or business is not well-known.

As Alania above said, you naturally increase your audience. Some sites are monetized as well, so if you’re paying for visitors you’re often making money anyway from the ad revenue generated from their site visits.

True. I think this is the main reason. I agree with you that some people are making money from ads so paying for visitors will generate revenue for them. It promotes the site and helps them earn. A win-win situation.

Getting traffic to Ines site helps to get engagement on the site and helping Google index and rank ones site speedily.one site can then even get organic traffic from search engines provided the traffic isn't mere bots but humans that can actually interact on the site.

If it's legit traffic then it's helpful but if it's bots then it's useless. Bots or Fake traffic are being used by some site owners to mask the fact that their sites lacks traffic. But it's really their fault that theres a lack of traffic, it might be due to site mismanagement or the site has poor content.

Indeed. Any traffic is good as long as it is not bots. You are right about sites not getting enough traffic is due to poor content and mismanagement. Nowadays you have to be creative and stand out from the rest.

There's some sites like YouTube where you get paid if you reach a certain number of views. Paid traffic could come in handy on such sites.

Yes. That is why owners pay for people to watch their videos. I think they earn more than they pay for traffic. Especially if those viewers would come back to their channel.

You will have more people visiting your site. Organised traffic is what you would want as a site owner. And if you are using Adwords, then the more the traffic the more the income you will generate. It is always good to have people in your site. It will also improve your page rank and put your site higher on the search results.

I noticed that AdWords is really popular. I have never paid for traffic since I don't have a site. But, I will put this on my list if ever I'd have plans.

Paying traffic for your sites is like paying for a medium to advertise your business. Getting more audience to know your business the better for your site. It can create a good impression for your sites. Most people use paid traffic to boost their site because it's more faster than generating traffic.

Paid traffic is an alternative method for websites and business owners to gain traffic that they wanted. Buying traffics have benefits as well as drawbacks depending on the type of the platform. When people talk about paid traffic, it could be a banner ad, adverts, pop-ups, or PPC.

One of the benefits of paid traffic is the instantaneous traffic a website will have after the campaign is created. The drawback of paid traffic is it will cost money on the advertiser and will not guarantee that the website will earn profits. Just in the case of the CPM or as they call it Cost Per Mile, where the advertiser will be charged per 1000 impressions. This type of paid traffic is cheaper but does not guarantee that in a thousand impressions, the ad will be clicked because the impressions might be coming from bots and not from real humans. Fraud clicks result in losses to website owners. PPC also suffers from this kind of fraud. But according to experts, it can be prevented by using software that will automatically block fraudulent clicks.

Paid traffic is still beneficial and helps improve the website's exposure to potential customers. But when using this traffic generation method, be sure to protect your campaign from frauds to avoid losses.

One of the most popular ways to get visitors to a website is with paid traffic. Paid traffic can be very affordable. If you have ever looked into Adwords or CPC rates, you know just how expensive targeted traffic can be.

Honestly, as far as I’m aware, there aren’t exactly all that many benefits to paying for traffic.

Some people look at it as a form of investment. By paying for inorganic traffic, you’re giving yourself a minor boost in search engine rankings which has the potential to direct organic traffic to your site. The problem is that I’ve heard Google has some sort of algorithm which can actually detect where traffic is coming from, which ultimately might result in said traffic having no impact on your ranking at all.

At best, it can give visitors the impression that your site is at least somewhat popular and worth giving a look.

If your paying for legit traffic and not bot traffic then it's good and it would benefit your site. All legit traffic is good because it's the traffic that converts. While bot traffic has its uses but it can't convert.

If there is one thing new websites need, it is a whole lot of traffic. The more traffic you get, the more business you attract. The advantage of paying for traffic is, when new organic visitors visit your site, they see that your site is busy. That gives some reassurance. Seeing other people using a website speaks to the credibility of the site. What more can a website owner ask for?

I think that they are no benefits to paying for traffic for sites especially if you are new to the online e-commerce or affiliate marketing game. If you are new you need to try and get free traffic from SEO and from social media sites. Once you have a bit of experience then you can buy traffic because now you have the data and experience to target your audience and save yourself money

These are such great tips. These will really be helpful especially to those who are newbies in this field.

Well, obviously, it is to generate more traffic. Also, in paying traffic for sites, make sure that your content observes quality or else paying for traffic would be useless.

It depends on the kind of traffic that is sold to you. Just take note that there were cases right in this marketplace that the traffic that was bought was looking good but after payment the number started to dwindle back to the original state. I think it is best to hire a freelancer to do the SEO work instead of buying traffic to your site especially if your site it monetized. At least the SEO work is legit and safe.

I think if you can afford to pay for traffic then it's okay. It adds up to the probability of you having more sales but not that much. It could be a big help though in making your product or service known. Some paid traffics will give you more profit and some may not. It still depends on the mechanics of what kind of paid traffic you will invest into. If you have the budget then it's never been bad to go for it.

Do you get paid for only people visiting your webpage? I don' know how this world works. Or do you get paid for visitors doing certain actions?

Well, for one, you'll get traffic to your site and with the increased activity, a higher chance of being found. Also, the activity on your site will give your site credibility and make potential customers believe there are lots of people interested in your product/service which will give them confidence in your product/service.

Paying for traffic allows your website to be known by users. I personally knows a lot of website that works to create traffic. Advantage of doing this would be increase in your viewers, once people see that it is viewed by many, others will just get curious and view the site as well. However, this kind of strategy should be coupled with good content, otherwise it may go downhill as well.
