    tv.com has been PARKED for many years.

    THAT IS A PARKED PAGE

    which means, the content is not from the owner, but from someone who is paying the ownere per click to advertise there.

    If you bought traffic and were scammed, it wasnt from TV.com
    If you clicked the link on those pages, it just gives you search results or an unrelated page.

    BTW i used to own targetedvisitors.net for many years (it was stolen by registerfly and enom)

    I would also avoid millionvisitorclub.com. For a million visitor package, they have delivered exactly 4 UV in 2 weeks. At this pace they will fulfill somewhere around the turn of the next century.

    I would never buy traffic from site like that because many of them are scams. Many of them don't send real visitors. And if they do send real visitors the traffic usually is not very targeted, so none of them convert into readers or buyers.

    Do not buy traffic from anywhere, it's useless.
    Work more on SEO to get targeted traffic.

    Which is, ultimately, buying traffic. I would guess that AdWords is not totally useless traffic, which is bought traffic.

    not all of them are fake traffic, many are real traffic, but people don't understand the difference between targeted traffic that is passive and traffic that is active .

    If you sell shoes, an ad on a womens fashion site would be targeted...so would an ad on a site about hiking. Bother are TARGETED but they are active ads because the potential buyers are passive (people are not looking specifically for shoes at that moment)

    If you put an ad in the yellow pages, Pay per click with a search engine, or in an e-commerce directory of stores, then thats also TARGETED but it is passive ads because the potential buyers are ACTIVELY looking for what you are offering.

    what is gonna give you more results....you standing in the shoe store to sell a pair of shoes and 10,000 people come in

    or you standing on a busy corner to sell shoes and 10,000 people pass you.

    Naturally the people GOING INTO THE STORE have more intention to buy, then people just walking down the street.

    In the same way..."targeted" hits, traffic etc, is a passive audience, so it requires MORE traffic than normal. it is cheaper than pay per click per impression, but in the end it balances out.

    Adwords...are people who typed in a keyword...traffic is people on a site RELATED to yours

    10,000 clicks of people who type in "shoes" is NOT going to give the same result as 10,000 people on a hiking site.

    Most people do poorly with "guaranteed traffic" because they get small quantities. a TEST should be 150k-300k NOT 1,000 or 10,000. and a FULL CAMPAIGN should be MILLIONS, not 20,000.


    Hope this helps to clarify. I have been selling guaranteed traffic for years, and there is a BIG difference between those who are successful and those who are not.

    Mainly, quantity purchased, and proper landing page.


    oh yah, SEO went out of style in 2004....Search Engine Saturation is what's needed these days...people don't just use google...they use many other types of sites to find what they want.

    Yes. Most have bots that crawl your page every so of often. If you insist on using then then my advice is to use a service like Cligs. Cligs (free) will give you a special URL that forwards to your site. Then it lets you monitor hits and how many of them were bots. Give this to the traffic site and see if they are scamming you.

    If your going to buy traffic, adwords is going to be your only quality source.

    You'd be better off spending the money on SEO related stuff, like buying back links etc then buying 'targetted traffic'.

    I don't like to buy traffic from that type of site.Usually real visitors are not sent by them.Working on SEO is better I think.
