Ok 3days into the adwords experiment of purchasing cheap traffic here are the results..
100 clicks at 1cent each over 3 days.
Now that is extremely low but if you look at the words/phrases we choose the 100 clicks i got was pretty high. (It only cost me 1dollar anyway)
Now all i have to do is create another couple of hundred adwords campaigns bottom “phissing for the 1cent clicks”
Stay tuned for my next experiment “purchase traffic via print media advertising“
Ok to recap i have a site that i want to grow, and by grow i mean get alot of people visiting it!
I outlined that i would try to achieve this by either purchasing traffic or by purchasing print space in a local magazine. The later, print space, is the subject of a future post. This post is about my first option “purchase traffic”
The site which im trying to grow is Liquid Lounge. Check out the Liquid Lounge tab if you want more information regarding this site!
Step 1: Find cheap keywords
I used this site to find cheap keywords. Take time to look around it and try to find keywords that match your site.
I choose the area “entertainment” and category “shows”. The keywords i chose were at the end of the list, the el-cheapo keywords in the 0.05cent range!
don and mike show
pedigree slide show
andy milonakis show
source today show
ticket to show
attack of the show
pedigree slide show
cruise show today tom
man show lady
Step 2: Adwords setup
Strategy is to get people to the site for only 1cent if possible. Unfortunately the search network is too expensive so we have to utilise the content network.
So i created a campaign, pasted my keywords in to it then switched off the google search off and left the content network on! I also set a budget of $10/day
Then i bid 0.01cent on the keywords!
Step 3: Wait and see.
Now all i do is wait for the clicks. Hopefully you’ve chosen a keyword that is popular and doesnt have too many scammers and click freuds!
My next post will be about the results from this experiment. Stay tuned people!
My goal is to make my personal website popular and by popular i mean “thousands of unique repeat visitors every day”
My personal website is “liquid lounge“.
So how am i going to drive traffic to my site?
1) Purchase traffic – advertise in other online websites and drive traffic from there to my site!
2) Advertise in print publications – advertise in local magazines, or print publications and try to attract people to my site!
Option 1 “purchase traffic” will be my experiment “Purchase Traffic” and seeing as i already know how google adwords works i will use there advertising network!
Option 2 “Advertise in print publications” will be the subject on my second experiment “Advertising in Print Publications”
Step 1: Find cheap keywords to bid on
Step 2: Come up with a catchy non-misleading adverts tying my site with the keywords defined above
Step 3: Run the campaign and monitor the the popularity of my site!
As a side note I am prepared to lose money on this experiment! And i am capping my potential losses to AU$200.
experiment “Purchase Traffic” will be discussed in my next blog entry, stay tuned!
