What is a reasonable rate for "organic web traffic


focus2200

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have questions especially for sellers about web traffic.
I am a buyer and looking for help on increasing my web’s clicks. I have tried 3 sellers 3 different offers from $5 to $95 and got nothing. The packages I ordered stated providing 30,000 to 500,000 organic traffics per month. So I am confused because I did read the sellers reviews before putting the orders. When I ordered they were all 5 starts sellers. I found the main problem of those 5 stars would be too early for buyers leaving their reviews. They were just surprised or pleased about the “clicks numbers” showing on the links which the sellers provided right after the projects started but failed to figure out these were nothing but just numbers and haven’t got the chance actually seeing the results.
Therefore, my questions are
1.how could buyers tell which sellers are really capable of providing this type of service?
2. what is the reasonable price for attracting real organic and targeted web traffics?
3. To my understanding, the click numbers should match with google analytics or the hit counter softwares embedded in the websites, right? Correct me if I am wrong.

I would greatly appreciate if any buyers could recommend genuine sellers of this type of services. Thanks!

I draw your attention to Fiverr’s community standards which state:

Fake engagement and traffic

Do not post, offer or ask for:

** Followers, subscribers, fans or views on social media platforms.*
** Fake engagement on any platform.*

Promise a service outcome which is not in your control

In certain instances, sellers may be tempted to promise outcomes of their service which is not in their control. For example, guaranteeing to restore your Amazon account or promising an exact amount of viewers for a Youtube video by its digital promotion. Please refrain from promising outcomes that are not in your control because it misleads buyers.

I know a lot of sellers state their gigs offer ‘organic traffic’ - but it’s simply not possible to promise a certain number of visitors.

Actually it is possible to guarantee a specific amount of visitors. If the reach for the ad is good enough, an ad can be scheduled to be live until that amount of people have clicked the ad.

A traffic seller knows their supply well enough so that they can calculate a deadline for the promotion to meet the requirements. Then if it’s lower quality traffic with little to no requirements for visitors, it’s usually an unlimited traffic deal over a specific duration instead of X amount of clicks within 10 days for example.

But that is true that no seller can control visitor’s actions. Not even legitimate youtube views can be guaranteed, as a person has to watch the video a specific amount of time (I believe) before it counts as a video view.

So if anyone sells youtube views/subscribers, social fans, followers etc. They are just generated by software, and not legitimate. They usually end up vanishing after some time as well. So it’s indeed not a good idea to buy actions, but just the visitors themselves.

TLDR: If purchasing traffic, focus on traffic alone and not specific outcomes of the traffic.

1.how could buyers tell which sellers are really capable of providing this type of service?

2. what is the reasonable price for attracting real organic and targeted web traffics?

3. To my understanding, the click numbers should match with google analytics or the hit counter softwares embedded in the websites, right? Correct me if I am wrong.

  1. Usually if the deal is too good to be true, then it is just that. Like if someone promises 30,000 visitors for $5, it is very low quality traffic most likely. So it serves no purpose unless you just like big numbers. So if it’s important people are real and targeted as well, ignore most unlimited deals. Look for limited deals instead, so you know the quality is there. The higher the cost per visitor, the better.

  2. There is no answer to this one. Every service is different and meets different needs.

  3. Visitor counters are sometimes inaccurate, but they give a good estimation still. Google analytics for example usually shows a very similar amount of visitors as an analytics link from the seller might show.

Thanks for your detailed explanation.

Here is the thing. I think 99.9% of the buyers including me understand the sellers who just help with the traffics, not anything else like conversions. We, as buyers, never ask for more than traffics for this kind of services. But the problem is most of the sellers could give the buyers the numbers they promised from the links they generated but all they provided are just the numbers, not real clicks.

Recently, I found a seller with +1000 positive reviews and have been working with her/him on my websites. I found this seller does provide much better traffic (quality) than those 3 sellers who I hired in the past. I did get some clicks and the visitors did spend time on my websites. But I still haven’t got the number of the clicks which he/she promises in the packages. One website gets about one third of the clicks and another one is still struggling and getting only about 2-3% of the clicks which I paid for. .

Yeah, that is also a possibility. I’ve tested pretty much every traffic site imaginable, and I would guess about 40% of them offer traffic generated by software. There sadly is no way to prove it and it’s also very hard to tell sometimes, so most people end up thinking it’s the real deal. I however haven’t tried many traffic gigs here, so I can’t say anything about them. But at least a gig’s rating is a good way to tell about the quality of the service at least.

If you ever end up receiving less visitors than was promised and it’s a targeted traffic service you purchased, then your requirements may have been too strict, and not enough people were eligible to see your ad.

In that case the seller should send a delivery extension request to continue the promotion further until the visitor amounts are as promised.

In any case you should suggest the seller to increase the gig’s duration or edit the description if you did not get as many visitors as was promised. You are also eligible to get a refund if you did not receive what was promised, but that should be the last option if the seller refuses to listen to your wishes.
