A couple of my clients keep receiving emails that promise the following:

2500 unique new visitors for $100
5000 unique new visitors for $200
10,000 unique new visitors for $350

We've been working on focused, quality traffic for both of these companies because they are local business owners and traffic from California for a business in South Carolina isn't going to do them a lot of good. When they receive promises like that though they think they are paying too much for SEO and they want to jump on the 2500 hits for $100 bandwagon.

Perhaps I am missing something but how can companies promise traffic like this for only a $100 of their time and I would think the traffic would be crap. Anyone see these types of ads before and have feedback? Just wondering how they follow through on this type of promise and what kinds of sites the traffic typically comes from.

Well, there are tools that will help you fake traffic and inflate analytics data.

There are also spammy SEO tactics that work for a while right up until they get you banned.

Either way, such propositions don't offer significant increases in conversions.

They're just spammers. Tell your client that and move on.

I just wanted to thank both of you for taking the time to answer. I figured as much but I don't pretend to know it all. So I just wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something. Thanks again.
