If you want a successful business online you’re going to need traffic. If you don’t have any traffic coming to your website there’s going to be no one to purchase anything. We’ve seen traffic generating software become popular recently and I have yet another one to show you today.
Blast4Traffic is a web-based tool that’s designed to send emails to 2.3 million people per day and up to 70 million people per month. Sounds good, right?
I’m not an affiliate for Blast4Traffic. We can’t stand these traffic generation scams here because of the low-quality visitors they send to your site. That’s if they send any visitors at all. Blast4Traffic is the worst I’ve seen so far.
The idea of traffic generation software is for you to get whatever message you want in front of 1000’s of eyeballs hoping to get them to visit your website. Blast4Traffic boasts that you can send your messages to 70 million targeted email addresses every month.
I’ve yet to see a traffic generation tool/software deliver high quality visitors to a website. The sort of traffic that will spend longer than a few seconds on your website before clicking away and never returning again. Desktop Lightning is the current favourite among scammers at the moment and has the same problems as Blast4Traffic. All you’re going to get is a high bounce rate and no conversions with traffic tools like this.
Is this what you’re after? Paying for people to spend a couple seconds on your website and never see them again?
I’ll show you exactly what’s in the members’ area of Blast4Traffic and show you why this product belongs in the crap pile.
A huge sign that Blast4Traffic was a scam to us here at StoppingScams.com was that Gmail didn’t like their web address when we tried sending emails. When Ian asked me to review Blast4Traffic, his attempts to email me were stopped by Gmail because of spam complains the website has received. Here’s the delivery failure notice Ian was given:
If Google stops you from sending the link of a website to someone, this is a massive sign to steer clear of it. If the company that pretty much owns the internet is telling me “you can’t send your friend this link because we’ve received lots of spam complains”… I’m going to listen!
Not only that, but the company no longer exists.
There’s a video in the members’ area that mentions Blast4Traffic is owned by a company called Comcast. He even mentions the company’s URL too: www.Comcast.net but if you went to the site you’ll find nothing about Blast4Traffic there.
Comcast is part of the NBC corporation. The Comcast that owns Blast4Traffic no longer exists.
If you look in the picture above you’ll see the video was recorded in 2008. This product hasn’t been updated in 7 years.
On the homepage they’ve put a handful of customer testimonies in the right sidebar. I had to check one of the sites out to see who’d actually give Blast4Traffic a positive review.
Their website doesn’t exist either.
So their company no longer exists, nor any sign of their website, and their “successful” customers’ websites don’t exist either… Blast4Traffic isn’t looking too promising right now.
You’ll see a very outdated layout with lots of upsells to other traffic generation tools:
All of these are either:
These products either no longer exist, are identical to Blast4Traffic, or out-of-date link exchange programs.
Google no longer ranks websites high in the search results based on the number of links it receives. Back in 2008 when you ranked higher, these exchange programs would help you get more traffic.
Google now penalizes sites that don’t have relevant links from relevant websites. Surprise, surprise – a link from a golfing website won’t help the rankings of a recipe website.
You also get the usual banner ads for random products like all the other scams we’ve reviewed:
This is something that really annoys me. You’ve paid money for this, so why should you be shown advertisements inside the members’ area?
This tells me the product creators are trying to squeeze as much money out of you as possible. They’ll receive money when you click on these ads and earn commissions if you purchase the crappy products, too.
It’s very simple. Pop your headline in the top, your main message in center (up to 60,000 characters), select up to 5 categories to send the message to, and hit send.
But what’s the quality of the email addresses in each group like? Just like with DesktopLightning, the vast majority of people in these groups are other internet marketers trying to promote their websites to people. With everyone trying to promote their own crap, do you think they’re going to purchase anything you’re trying to promote?
I don’t think so.
Remember earlier on when I said Gmail blocked the email Ian tried sending me? You’ll be lucky to land in the junk/spam folders of the people you message, at best.
Don’t ever purchase traffic generation software or tools like this! Especially if they make outlandish promises like Blast4Traffic does. If you could message 70 million legitimate customers every month (from a $34.50 product), do you think anyone would be struggling to be successful online? Of course they wouldn’t. Everyone would be rich.
What makes Blast4Traffic even worse is the fact it’s extremely outdated and people are still buying it. The only reason that people are even out there promoting it anymore is because they get paid for scamming you into buying it.
There aren’t any one-click solutions to email 70 million people every month. At least none that are effective, legitimate, and being sent to people who would even consider purchasing what you’re promoting.
