    Yes, it's given that you can buy traffic in Fiverr. But you can never say it's "real".

    The real way to drive traffic into your blog is to do SEO (off- and on-page). However, if you want to fast-track it, there's Google Adwords.

    buying traffic can be fast, but needs good testing to be profitable.

    Free SEO methods can work well, but usually take a lot of time to be effective.

    One method which can be free and fast is article syndication or guest posting. You need to write very high quality articles, suitable for the sites(s) you want to post them on, and communicate with them well. I recommend reading the info on article syndication by Alexa Smith (guest posting is very similar).

    Or another way to get the best of both worlds . . . try free traffic methods, and when you find one that is working well, up-scale that method by outsourcing the work.

    Yes indeed. After reading various opinions on this, I tested it for myself, spending $10 on Fiverr for US only traffic (to an old website I was not using anymore, so the low quality traffic didn't make any of my valuable websites less good). The results were zero use . . . yes, the visitors were there, but even the most generally popular free stuff got zero interest, so the visitors were obviously not real people with a genuine interesting in anything.

    Same advice as the others, unless the traffic is organic, from real people, you are wasting your time.

    Don't go for fake or bot traffic as this will ruin your blog. Better buy PPC ads in small network like Content.ad giving better price for Ads than Adsense.

    You can never buy real traffic. Fake traffic - yes. But would you want that? Build it naturally, it's the safest way to go.

    Stop misguiding, as buying PPC traffic from Adsense or Bing will bring in traffic and keep optimizing the number of views and clicks on Ads. And hire a qualified designer if you want to buy graphics ads.

    If you want real traffic you should try and use Google Adwords or Facebook Ads with paid ads.
    People who offer "Real" traffic in most cases are not really providing real traffic.

    For a blog, targeted Facebook ads is the way to go, assuming your blog isn't in a niche that is too narrow. Reddit ads will get you some visitors as well. Again, though, it depends on what your blog is about and how well you can design your ads. You'll need to do plenty of testing in either case.

    Buying traffic is waste of money even if you get real visitors, they won't be converting or reading or anything. Write content with lots and lots of long tail keywords that after some time will rank themselves in search engine as long as your website has some authority. Another way is drive traffic from social media sites, don't just think facebook, think wider.

    You could try Google Ads: Search and or (cheaper) Display campaigns.
    You could also try Facebook Traffic campaigns (these tend to be even cheaper) than Google Ads campaigns and you can target more precisely.

    Another way would be to start a YouTube channel and mention your URL/domain there.

    Please note that there are countless companies out there selling "traffic", which is merely junk traffic (bots).

    If you have a low budget or no budget for PPC campaigns, then focus on generating SEO/organic traffic. Guest articles can bring you quite a decent amount of traffic - if you land them on quality authority sites.

    If you have a small budget, then you might want to promote a Facebook Page (create it first), which represents your site. It's called a Page Likes campaign and it will help you increase the number of likes. Later, you can post to your members (but unfortunately the posts' visibility is very low, so again you'd have to pay for that through Boosted Posts).

    All of these ways help you generate more or less traffic. Decide based on your strategy and funds.

    If you have a very small amount to invest only (e.g. 100 USD for a year), then perhaps it's not worth buying traffic at all.

    Consider traffic only if you have at least hundreds of dollars to spend per month. Or, if you have a single landing page and/or project, which you need to feed with targeted traffic (e.g. when you're promoting a niche product).

    Hope this helps ;)

    Hey, I´m Ema and I´ve recently started a lifestyle blog. I know very little about link building, could you please explain it in a few words? Thanks in advance

    Great post, I´ll bear in mind what you said about the long tail keywords.
