    Not something to waste much time on ...

    but do you know anyone who buys blind traffic?
    USA sites, USA traffic, but I'm in the UK, which disqualifies me from the main provider.

    [edited to add:] non-adult sites - I know there are lots of them who will pay for it.

    Well, there are 2 large markets for "blind" traffic - that is traffic that didn't know where it was going before it clicked (or indeed was willfully deceived - hey, I didn't say it was pretty [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]).

    One is porn sites the other is allclicks.com, but they (allclicks) only accept USA webmasters. Their success made me think there must be others.

    Are you Crazy?

    How much traffic are you talking about, and how much do you expect to get for it?

    Hi DrewBert

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>How much traffic are you talking about<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Relatively trivial right now. I can get/create more - but there's no point without a buyer.

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>how much do you expect to get for it?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    AllClicks pay 3c/click and appear to actually pay out. Not sure about the viability at much less than this, but open to ideas.

    I'm not really in a position to do a one-off deal as I don't have the traffic right now to make it worthwhile. It's only a small part of what I do, so I was hoping to find somewhere I could easily plug into as an extra revenue stream when the opportunity occurs.

    I can see some value to blind traffic, if USA generated, but not for anything like 3 cents.

    Sorry - I've been a little misleading. AllClicks changed to 2c as of 1st Oct.

    I didn't really start this thread to debate the value or desirability (or even ethics) of blind traffic. But I would like to identify an alternative to AllClicks for non-USA webmasters, which isn't proving easy [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    I just took a look at this page:

    http://www.allclicks.com/terms.html

    Unless I'm missing something, traffic from Scotland is allowed.

    Is that not the country you host from?

    Actually my server is in Texas [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Yes - Scottish traffic is ok, but living here as a webmaster isn't. You must live in the USA to get paid by AllClicks and they won't budge on it.
