Pay Per Click traffic is one of the most effective ways to get highly targeted visitors to your website. It’s fast and there’s loads of it. The only problem is that it usually costs an arm and leg, especially in Adwords.

And yet I’m sure you’ve heard numerous times all these gurus rambling on how they can get 5-cent clicks even in the most competitive niches, as if they have some unadvertised cheap payment plan. Truth be told, there is no secret payment plan, everything comes down to keywords you bid on. There are in fact cheap keywords in any niche you can possibly think of and you can get them.

People look at traffic as the Holy Grail, the answer to all Internet Marketing problems. And as a consequence they look for guaranteed website traffic, they buy it. Certainly, if the traffic is the only obstacle, you can pay for it. Especially when it comes cheap. Been there, done that. The purpose of this post is two folded. I want to explain to those who need it explained, what traffic is the traffic you need and how to get it (paid or free).

Illustration: Piggy Bank Under a HammerI’ve been using Google Adwords actively for over a year now (I even took the Google Advertising Professional Exam) and I realize I have a few tips and tricks up my sleeve. Even though as I learned and tested things I didn’t think Adwords or PPC in general would have any tips and tricks as such – there are keywords, ads, your bids and that’s all there is to it, what more can you invent?

I’ve just heard that PPC Classroom 3.0 is to be released in November and it’s brought back the memories. You see, I’ve been a member of PPC Classroom 2.0 last year.

The reason I had joined it back then was because the videos of Anik Singal and Amit Mehta got me hooked.  They talked about something I knew only the basic concepts about – the PPC and Adwords. And what they’ve talked about, the little tips they’ve shared got me interested enough to give it a go. I have to say it was a smart move in general, to learn PPC and I’m glad I did take action.

So I’ve been skimming through this month’s upcoming IM product list. Same ol’, same ol’ mostly. I’m too lazy to even write about most of that. But Clickbank Pirate has caught my attention after all. And it’s because I think they have something really useful to offer. I have my concerns about it too though.

Loot4LeadsLoot4Leads is a course on CPA marketing – everything about choosing CPA offers, testing them and driving traffic to them through SEO and PPC.

Before you say, “oh no, not another CPA course”, here are some key facts that make Loot4Leads interesting:

Let me start by saying that I don’t like the name of PPC Loophole. The word “loophole” implies a temporary bottleneck in a system that can be exploited to your advantage, and you may start thinking where you put your money bag to fill it with quick cash while the loophole lasts.

This product, however, has nothing even remotely to do with such a loophole. It’s a very well prepared PPC course on top of the popular Speed PPC software. It has great value despite its name, but I guess it’s just a matter of personal preference.
