LiewCF Paying For Traffic to His Blog?

I was browsing PPS last night and came across thia advert for LiewCF and his ‘Tech’ blog.

LiewCF Adwords

I’ve noticed more and more lately bloggers and informational sites paying to get traffic, from the statistics I’ve seen it will actually make them money.

For example they can spend $5 on Adwords and get back $7 in Adsense, it’s not a great deal of profit, but if you are already making money from your site it is a way to increase it.

I would wonder though if this is actually working for LiewCF as his advert isn’t very eye catching or well worded and it’s quite ironic that it shows up on PPS because I’d say 90% of the people there already know about him, so any that click the ad are just costing him money, but he’s not gaining new readers.

What do you think about this?

Will will be seeing ads from Lillian Chan showing up in our Adsense blocks any time soon?

I already saw Adbrite ads for Hottest Malay Girl on Kenny’s site and now LiewCF is there too.

Hottest Malay Girls

I had a feeling the Hottest Malay Girl was Kahsoon at first, but I don’t think it is.

I considered using Adwords for some of my other sites but I haven’t yet, I’m doing some campaigns with Adwords at work now though, so I’ll see the progress.

Pretty interesting technique for the ‘probloggers’ I think.

    yeah, but if u want to make real money, well i mean about 2000 dolar after 2 week, i can show you how. But there’s a high risk in it to consider.

    I don’t think the direct traffic will profit the advertiser from a blog’s perspective.. it’s rather the conversion rate, I mean the chance that the visitor being turn into repeat/royal reader that matters.

    I dunno. I’ve never ever clicked on an ad on a blog before. I always felt that their presence was more of an annoyance then anything else!

    I suppose since he’s got enough from his ads revenue. He doesn’t mind paying $1 an ad or a monthly $10 every month for AdWords.

    The question should be, is his hype dying? 😉

    one word to describe LCF’s move: lame.

    oh wait, there is another; pathetic.

    Can that really increase traffic? I don’t know about others, but I usually auto-ignore those ads.

    Danny Foo: I think his hype stopped long ago, when he stopped writing his own opinions and original articles and just started C&P 3 times a day.

    DK: Yah it can increase traffic, in direct proportion in to how much you are willing to spend, and if you go pay per click or pay per 1000 impressions.

    I don’t think you need to promote site via adwords as long as you have quality and original content. IMHO it’s better to focus on producing original and interesting topic rather then posting stupid updates from Mozilla, thunderbird, windows patch everytime and post 3-4 post everyday with some stupid pic that you can get everywhere.

    Put effort in the writing and try to give something useful for the readers IMHO are the best strategy. Good blogs don’t need extra effort on marketing, they sell themselves well enough.
