Well this is a surprise. (Thoughts on TrafficZap)

Yesterday I bought 1000 visitors from TrafficZap … mostly because it was cheap, and I thought I’d experiment with a few more traffic exchanges than I did last year.

With most of the traffic delivered, I was surprised to check my stats to find that I actually converted some of that traffic. 1.4% of it, in fact.

While that doesn’t seem like a spectacular number, it is the best I’ve gotten so far from any non-targeted traffic purchase.

I’ve got a few more results left to come in from text links and AdBrite, but when I start over again with the best of the cheap traffic, I have a feeling TrafficZap is going to be included in the mix.

Gosh, I love being surprised.

    An update: A second blast of 1000 visitors resulted in a 2.2% conversion rate. I’ll need to experiment more, but could it be that weekend visitors convert better than weekday ones?

    When we tested the service, we got high conversion rates–probably even higher than your rate of 2.2% (although we got credits through the exchange rather than purchasing them). You’re right in your conclusions–Trafficzap is a good service. We have a detailed review of them at http://www.thegreattrafficexperiment.com/trafficzap/trafficzapexperiment.html if you’re interested.

  3. I use both Adsense and Adbrite and i can say that adbrite is also a good source of income but not as good as adsense.*`-
