Targeted Traffic on Sale?

April 27th, 2007 · No Comments

You can buy targeted traffic, and I am not talking about google’s product here. Quality Traffic Supply promises to deliver targeted traffic to a website that is contextually driven. I wonder how their business model works – seeing as how google pretty much dominates the show with regard to contextual advertising. The benefit, as far as I can see, is that Quality Traffic Supply drives traffic from contextually related sites in “over 250 categories”. So unlike google’s product which mostly directs visitors your way based on the search terms, this service is search term independent in that the traffic will come from like-minded sites.

I was just casually looking into ways of getting more traffic to this blog – I have been blogging for about 6 months now, and the number of visitors I get is growing slowly. Writing here would be a lot more fun with more readers and comments. However, I can’t spend hundreds on adsense/adwords, and I would like to get visitors who are interested in arcane technology, popular science — the kind of stuff I write here. That’s what led me to the targeted traffic firms other than google. But the question now is, how do I define myself as a target? I don’t really sell anything, or write about one specific field. Oh well, perhaps I should just stop checking my stats every day, stop navel-gazing and write whatever I like, regardless of whether there is an audience. The idea of spending money to get visitors might be overkill for me at this point.
