    Testing Trafficka

    I've come across this website called Trafficka, I thinks its new and i have signed up for $20 for 5000 hits.

    Has anyone else used this site?

    Hoping I get some results out of it.

    Check it out here:

    I will update this thread in a month to let you all know if its been a success.

    Never heard of it. In my experience, even though $20 is cheap for 5k hits, if its not targetted at all, it's a waste.

    Exactly! Do you know how and where those clicks come from? Bots could generate clicks you know. You could have a lot of clicks but you won't have a guarantee of having a large sale if the traffic is not targeted.

    The traffic is targeted! The logo, the images in the website, the dozens of categories tell you that is by target

    If it is targeted then I cannot see how they are doing it for $20. The price tag is rather low for a genuine service.

    These kind of things never really seem to pay off.

    It was posted on DigitalPoint, by a member. I don't believe it is adsense safe, and most-likey it is bots coming from a DP forum.. I believe it's new as well, almost positive, be careful, don't waste your money. If you're set on it, email them as for 1,000 hits @ $5, for a review. Then buy the $20+ packages once you test the hits for verification it's legit.--

    Yeah, that's wonderful advice. No point in you wasting all your money in one lump-check it out first and then go with it if it works.

    I echo the sentiment that zero good traffic could come from this. BUT, it's $20. If that's a big wad to you, then you should buy yourself a good coffee mug and focus on more productive marketing methods. :>

    Update

    Sorry about the late update been busy lately but anyways...

    So my number of visits did increase over the 30 days so I did get the 5000 visits. Was it real traffic? Mostly I would say no. I did receive 2-3x more page views than visits. The traffic I recieved was not from dodgy countries either, they came from mostly the US and Aus (You can choose which countries which you receive hits from).

    Adsense didnt like it. It registered probably half of the visits compared to awstats in my cPanel. And I earned basically zero $ from the adventure.

    My Alexa Ranking went up a couple of hundred thousand. (950,000 - 750,000). Yay.

    The thing that made me skeptical was where you could choose how many hits you wanted to receive each hour, (they give you this option after you pay) so I immediately thought bots and I have been conned. For this reason I doubt all the traffic was real.

    And in the week after the month has finished I have gone back to my usual number of visits and hits. So whilst it provides short term results (increase in visits) no long term benefits were really gained.

    If you still want to try it out make sure you go into the control panel and edit your campaign, because the default is to recieve all your hits in a couple of days. So make sure you change the nuber of visits per hour.

    If you have any other questions let me know

    Hey jvf no I havent ried any other compaines, not sure that I will either. The problem is you can't really tell if its real traffic. And chances are they will not continue to return to your website. Probably best to avoid these companies and try to attract visiters using other methods. Just my opinion though

    me too I don't think it's adsense-friendly if you use adsense.

    Google may disable your account due to that.
