– If you are too desperate to get traffic go ahead and buy traffic from search engines. While a google search on paid traffic will throw up hundreds of sites, sticking to the top three is by far the wisest thing to do. How does Google Adwords / Overture / Msn Adcentral work ? All three work on PPC ( pay per click) model where you bid for keywords and pay for every click on your ad. Things can get pretty expensive if you do not know what you are doing. Bidding on high value keywords can get pretty intense and often prices go north of $50 a click. Try to bid on very specific keywords where competition is low and maintain a fixed daily budget. Also remember to have the target country and age group in mind.You dont want to pay for a 10 yr old to visit your site about stock markets.

While services other than the top 3 will be quite tempting due to the low costs, a quick research showed me that often these services SCAM their clients and use automatic bots ( web robots ) to send traffic to a client’s website.They can send a million hits to your website without a human ever seeing your site. SO STAY AWAY is what I’ll suggest.

Among the top three Google Adwords is the most recommended due to its vast network and easy to use interface. You can have one account to show ads to people anywhere on the planet. Overture requires you to open different accounts ( seperate deposits required) for different countries which is quite a disadvantage compared with Adwords.

– With

crossing 400 million active users, possibilities of getting visitors from social networks is only becoming more and more evident. To get traffic from sites like Facebook you have to signup and launch a campaign with keywords just like with Adwords. However there are some concerns that Facebook traffic is non converting traffic.Simply put They Rarely Buy Stuff so think twice before shelling out if you are seeking traffic that will convert for you. Other important sites like Myspace.com also offer to run campaigns.
