The Useless Traffic

If you joined my pinay $candal SEO drive, I think, you already increased your traffic. However, Silkenhut pointed out that these traffic are useless because based from his experience, he gained nothing but increase in bandwidth consumption, higher bounce rate but nothing in return.

Well, if you only depend on Adsense for monetizing your blog, then, I agree. It is indeed a useless traffic. You’ll not earn a single cent from it. Adsense is intelligent enough not to show ads on those blog posts because it contains stop words.

However, I disagree saying that it is totally useless. Adsense is not the only ad network in the world, is it? Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Don’t rely solely on Adsense for monetizing your blogs.

So, what do you do with your pinay $candal posts? Put other ads. A fellow pinay $candaler, 🙂 gl3nnx.net provided some tips on how you can earn from these traffic. Go and read it.

No online traffic is useless, you just need to learn how to cope with them. I still stand with my secret of success formula. Build traffic + optimize ads = success. You already have the traffic, so, optimize the ads to gain success. 😉

I think, this is the only useless traffic that I know of:

But still, that traffic is still useful to those selling mineral water on the streets. 🙂

  1. Any traffic would be good…as selaplana said, traffic is money…

    I guess I won’t be having traffic this upcoming fight of Pacquiao and Marquez…Google took my post off their search engine…Any idea why it happened? 🙁

  2. If I were to summarize my post, then it would be pinay scandal and adsense don’t go together. Thanks for posting a link for the alternatives. I’ll check them out asap. ^_^

  3. bossing thanks for the plug hehe, thats right.. wlang traffic na useless.. dagdag ng Alexa yun, ung traffic from fake $c@nd@l post pwede rin pagkakitaan sa Adsense sa mga next page browsing nila kse wla ng P 0rn words dun hehe

  4. @Entreprenars… already answered you in your blog 😉

    @Allen… yup. Adsense and pron related keywords don’t mix. that’s why I mentioned putting an alternate ad to your Google Adsense ads when joining this campaign to earn some money. 😉 I’m still monetizing it using Widgetbucks.

    @Glenn… yup. it can also increase your Alexa that could give you higher price if you are doing sponsored reviews. 🙂

    Btw, this post is already on the first page of Google for the keyword useless traffic. LOL!

  5. hahahaha! toink! oo nga naman.. useful sa mga nagbebenta ng mineral water, mani, and candy. wahahaha!

  6. marhgil,

    the comment page is kinda off tangent! heheh! In any case, i think you just gave me an idea. I have been very busy at work and could not update my banco site. It’s new and it’s struggling for traffic. What I’ll do is test it with my Pinay Scandal that has worked for me at reyna elena. I’ll tell you the results of my little experiment.

  7. Mon professeur! Would you kindly check the first result of my little tiny experiment here: http://bancodereyna.com/?p=50. It’s right at the very bottom of the entry. Heheheh!

  8. silkenhut has a point but ur right, its just a matter of exploiting the traffic. i’ve also pointed this out on one of those pinoy blogs i’ve joined with. just nail that weird traffic for you to reap the juice in them. this is also the reason why i’ve shifted to “daily craps” for my blog because craps are really juicy to almost everyone. we read a lot of craps and craps are the ones that spice up the blogosphere, that is why ive come to nail most of those crap readers and earned a few $$$ from it.

    and for the scandal thing, y not try using this keywords in google “remiele malubay scandal”. 🙂 .. so id like to thank ramiele for that hahaha.. 🙂

  9. actually, in a way i’m also pissed with the result of this seo campaign in my page. not that it didn’t gave me enough traffic to boost my stats but i thought i was using simple permalinks when i made my entry but after switching my hosting to dreamhost, the id’s got messed up during the transfer and the trackbacks are being pointed to my post about my daughter. anyway, that’s my mistake and in as much as i want to do something about it, i’m too lazy to fix it right now.

  10. well that was my first try on SEO yang Pinay SCaNDoll ayun nagtuloy tuloy na.. pero di ito wasted na traffic if you can make a site na parang Scandoll ang dating pero hindi naman edi ok.. hahahah
