Paid Traffic

Paid Traffic refers to website visitors who land on a web page through paid advertising campaigns, such as pay-per-click (PPC) ads.

Definition

Paid Traffic refers to website visitors who land on a web page through paid advertising campaigns, such as pay-per-click (PPC) ads, display ads, social media ads, and sponsored content. Unlike organic traffic, which is generated through unpaid search engine results, paid traffic is acquired by paying for placement or clicks on advertisements.

Paid traffic can provide immediate visibility and traffic to a website, making it an effective strategy for driving targeted traffic and achieving specific marketing objectives, such as lead generation, sales, or brand awareness. However, paid traffic requires ongoing investment and management to ensure optimal performance and return on investment (ROI). Common platforms for paid advertising include Google Ads, Facebook Ads, LinkedIn Ads, and Twitter Ads.
