Google Adwords: Cheap Traffic?

nick8609 PPC has been known to be a lucrative method to generating traffic and making a profit online.  However, Google Adwords has also cost a lot; in terms of money and loss, to many marketers who either lack the skill in PPC or the money necessary to invest.

Google Adwords would typically want advertisers to spend every dime on them, but by going this route you wonít generate much profit and will probably end up in more loss than gain.  The reality is that there is a better way to get Google Adwords traffic.

The idea of saturation is essential to picking out the right market, and typically if a market is saturated the chances for profit and success are slim.  By going into smaller niche markets that arenít saturated with competition the chances for success are much greater.  A mathematical example could be that if an advertiser aims for a smaller niche with dramatically less competition the clicks could easily fall into the range of 300-500 for under $0.10 a click.  The reason for this again is that not a lot of people are going into these markets and so its easier to get the cheaper traffic and the tons of money.

The Content Network is an underrated traffic stream.  The reason is that most people donít know about it, and so its smarter to focus upon the Content Network when it comes to getting traffic from Adwords.  However, the Content Network is not a magic stick and there have been many bad experiences by people who have gotten thousands of bad visitors from it and have never made a profit.  The reality about the Content Network is that an advertiser should have the right approach, and with this approach the generation of profit and good cheap traffic is far beyond possible.

Overall, the Content Network is a better source for traffic because most advertisers are scared to advertise on it and so thereís a lot less competition.  Another thing is that the quality of traffic is a lot better.
So, the possibility for cheap AND quality traffic from Adwords is there, it just takes changing your methodology and working smarter.

GeraldC You can absolutely get free traffic with the help of SEO strategy such as link building, article and directories submission and press release.

guideebook Yes, google adwords is a good thing. To get free traffic is very time consuming and with adwords you have a stady stream of visitors.
But to handle adwords is kind of complicated. Please follow the link to get a free google adwords email course, I found it very helpful:

htd web marketing The trouble with trying to find niches is that firstly without spending money to really find out, what can appear to be a niche (apparent cheap traffic using whatever tool you choose), may not be in real life.

This is because even now, most people can't set up an adwords campaign correctly. In other words they set up something that costs more than they need to pay, often due to adverts being seen where they have little chance of getting a click.

What this does is push up the price of your ad. Of course you can reduce this affect by setting up a well structured campaign of your own - but it will still drive up your costs.

Another way of partially solving this problem is understanding negative keywords in some detail, as explained for free here.

However for ebooks, I found that given the selling price needs to be so low (there are so many free ebooks out there), you have to run an incredibly tight campaign to even break even, profit may only come after considerable experimentation.
