In depth: How does traffic arbitrage work?
What is traffic arbitrage?
Traffic arbitrage is the process of purchasing traffic and simultaneously reselling at a higher price. By ‘reselling’, this generally means driving the traffic to a website or landing page on which you have sold advertising space, or by sending directly to a publisher’s page on which they have their own ads.
Popular traffic sources include teaser and banner networks and contextual advertising.
The difference between the cost of acquiring this traffic and the eventual income from the purchases made by this traffic – bearing in mind that the majority will be unlikely to convert – is your profit, so this must be significant enough to be successful.
How do multiple profiles help with traffic arbitrage?
This really is a game of numbers.
Because of the unpredictability of traffic quality – both in terms of its volume and its conversion rates – you need to be well spread to start building up a viable business. Relying on a few sources is a risky strategy, especially when you add in the dangers of account bans.
As we have explained above, websites have increasingly sophisticated ways of detecting what they consider to be suspicious behavior, including through the smallest of inconsistencies in your browser fingerprint. The moment this is flagged, there is a high probability you will find your account banned.
What impacts conversion rates when you redirect traffic?
Ultimately, this will come down to two areas.
The first is the quality of the advert and landing page: does it lay out a clear proposition, with a compelling reason for purchase?
The second is the quality of the traffic itself. Is it hot traffic – where they are receiving contextual advertising that fits a desire they’ve already evidenced through their search – or is it cold traffic, where they were not originally looking for the product or service you’re redirecting them to?
How do you stop multiple accounts from being suspended?
The key here is that each account must seem like it comes from a genuinely separate identity – and this is why so many arbitrage entrepreneurs rely on Multilogin for the stability of their business. Through our software, you can create hundreds or even thousands of virtual browser profiles that are understood as completely native, independent browser fingerprints by third parties. They are completely segregated, so they do not leak identifying factors, cookies and so on between themselves. This way, you can be confident that your business is built on a much firmer foundation – rather than wondering if it’s just a matter of time.
