Free website traffic


I am building a web portal. I would like to send web sites free traffic to their homepage. Is that illegal?
In order to build the portal I would web scrapthen import it into my database and send the sites traffic. Is it illegal?


Hi @Denisewnative,

Sending traffic to a site is not illegal.

Scraping websites might be depending on how you scrape it, what you do with the information, where you are located, where the website is located, etc.

Best of luck,


I’m going to be using a program to scrape it. The information will be placed on my website. Links with a brief Description only. I will leave it up to the website owner to update any info that they see fit. I am located in the US.

Any input would be greatly appreciated
