One thing I quickly realized when I got started online was the fact I needed to generate quite a lot of traffic to my websites if I was to make any money online. In the early days I fell for the paid traffic scams that promised a huge amount of traffic for a small investment! None of those methods delivered any results, the ‘hit’s were probably automated or from visotors that were so un-targeted that they would never bring any real results.

Paid guaranteed traffic is 99% scam. Sure, there is a 1% variable in there somewhere, however, statistics show that if you force users to view your website (usually through black-handed techniques like URL hijacking, malware installations, pop up ads and the works), they are NOT going to be the least bit interested in what you have to offer. Unfortunately, this is what most paid traffic sites give you.

You can also take the commercial traffic approach and blindly advertise your website with local signage, TV/movie commercials, print publications, radio spots or even banner ads on a major search engine. True, you will get guaranteed views…but there is no telling whether you will connect with your audience.

The best way to market your website is through text related content (or SEO, to generalise a term), because this means targeted advertising. You only interact with traffic that admits to being interested in your products or services. Statistically, this is a no brainer. You are directly connecting with your best audience. All that matters now is the presentation.
