I used a BHW traffic seller I used them a few times years ago but I was struggling to keep a client happy - in a very high profile industry, with a Board that is a bunch of old men that want results yesterday and barely even know 'who' Google is...
So...to buy some time before I rank for some very difficult keywords, I decided to buy some traffic to inflate results just to get a few weeks and to shut the old guys up. Morally you could say it's a bit iffy, but in reality, more traffic means Analytics looks good, Google sees the bounce rate go down and time spent go up, so gives the site a boost anyway - tested multiple times.
However......for their main keyword (which I'll never rank for, being honest), I sent 4.5k traffic in 3 weeks. With 90 conversions. One conversion pays for my service...so, they're absolutely bouncing. I've been on holiday and moved house so have been busy and didn't refill the balance on the traffic site and they're asking what's up. I said there was a server issue (lol) and should be back to normal soon.
Obviously I'm gonna throw some at some new, old, shit, test and no link profile sites to see what the effects are on rankings/conversions. Maybe it was a fluke, I dunno but for the equivalent of $4 per day ($120pm) it's definitely worth the money if it works. Then....there's going BIG.
Anyone seen the same? Anyone think it's a pile of crap and a coincidence or it's briefly helped rank for the big ass keyword and the conversions came from that?
