If you are managing a website, probably you already know how hard is to generate traffic. This task is even harder when you run AdSense on your site, and trying to make a profit. AdSense is a relative good source of income if you have enough traffic to your website. Google however can ban your account if you try to trick the system. They are very picky on the content you create, but this is in your control. However when you buy traffic to your site the game is changing.
I have spent some time to read Google AdSense’s terms, but have not found anything that refers to bought traffic. However I found this article that gives you general information on how to buy traffic that is safe for AdSense. When you purchase traffic to your site, it is crucial to know where that traffic is coming from, what kind of traffic it is and how this traffic impacts the ads you have placed on your site. Generated traffic is of course prohibited. Your account will be banned if you buy traffic that is generated by bots or force users to click on ads.
Unfortunately Google does not give any information about the sources that they found to receive invalid traffic from, referring to the legal complications that this information might attract.
Then is it Safe to Buy Traffic for AdSense Sites?
Well you can never be sure that the traffic you buy will be ok for your site. However there are websites such as GrowTraffic that claims to provide traffic that will work for AdSense sites as well. They do not give you any guarantee on this claim, but they state the fact that there were no reports about banned AdSense accounts from the traffic they have sent.
To be sure about the quality of the traffic you are going to buy for your money site, first I suggest testing it. It might be expensive to test the traffic, but it can be fatal having your account banned if it happens to buy bad traffic. The simplest way to test the bought traffic is to create a website that has no ads on it. Install Google Analytics and other tools that can track the incoming traffic and compare the results.
Check the source of the traffic, IP addresses, and user agents and if you find anything that might look strange, restrict the visitors from that source with .htaccess. I will give you more details on how to restrict bots and IP’s with .htaccess in an upcoming article.
Now you might say that you will be losing traffic by banning certain IP addresses from your site. This is true, and you might also lose some revenue as well. However in the long run it is safer to do it like this. Even you will not make money from all the incoming traffic, you will make enough to still be profitable and afford to buy even more visitors.
Once you figured out what traffic is good, you can apply it to your money site. You should still track the traffic and if you find any fishy source, just block that as well.
Tips and tricks to fly under the radar
You should always buy traffic progressively and not all at once. Buying high amount of traffic in a very short period of time can be suspicious and it uncontrollable. Even though it is not against Google AdSense terms to buy traffic, you should still do it carefully. Make it look natural, like a constantly growing website that gain more and more traffic overtime. Do not be greedy and plan for long term results.
So to answer to: it is possible to buy one million visitors in 30 days that is safe for AdSense website, the answer is yes. From GrowTraffic you buy one million visitors and can choose to distribute it over a certain period of time: from 7 days to up to 90 days. Please note, that I have not tested their traffic yet and I can’t claim that their service is 100% AdSense prof. Before you send their traffic to your money side, do your research and don’t blame me or them for having your AdSense account banned.
Is it worth buying traffic to your AdSense site?
Depending on the niche of your site, the CTR and CPC can vary a lot. Let’s assume that the CTR (click through rate) is 1% and the CPC (cost per click) is $0.30. Now if you send one million visitors to your site in 30 days, you will receive 10.000 clicks (1% of one million). With $0.30 cost per click you revenue will be 10.000 x 0.30 = $3000. The cost of one million visitors at GrowTraffic is $2100, which ends up in having $900 in profit (basically on autopilot). As mentioned, your profit really depends on the website topic and advertiser competition. For example a tech blog can earn much more than a website with funny pictures.
