I have been programming on the Internet since 96' and currently testing multiple online advertising methods such as google adwords, true opt-in newsletter mailing (out source), offline traditional advertising, page ranking on search engines, etc, etc.  I have done some general searches and found a few companies claiming "guarranteed traffic to your website", some by affiliate marketing, some by page does not exist exit, some by other means, lots of claims out there.

Looking for anyone who had or has experience with any successful marketing "increase traffic" companies.  LOOKING FOR THE REAL DEAL.  Besides what I am now doing, I need to increase traffic into my website, with integrity.  Currently running a website for loans.

Thanks in advance for your input....

Your best bet is always to run a well-designed, SE optimized website and promote it diligently and effectively.  It sounds like you are already doing that.

There are a number of companies that promise to deliver traffic to your website.  They may (or may not) be able to do that, but if they don't deliver quality traffic (ie. traffic that translates into sales), what's the point?  Most of these companies are traffic exchanges, participants visit each others sites and get credits.  The more credits you get, the more traffic you get to your site (other participants coming to your site to get credits) because your info/ad appears more often.

Most of these setups are flawed because the ads are not targetted, so you end up with mostly disinterested traffic or worse.  Worse means participants who use automated methods for visiting other participants in order to build up their own credits to get visitors to their site.  In that case, your 'visitor' is a bit of code running on someone machine somewhere.  Not likely to get a sale there, huh?

From what I've seen and heard, the best option in this category would be www.trafficswarm.com.  They work hard to target your ads and work equally hard to guard against and penalize cheaters.  Will it bring in traffic?  Almost certainly.  Will it bring in quality traffic?  Take a look at their website and see what you think.  You can try it for free and find out.  If so, it may serve as a model of what to look for among the numerous (!) other guaranteed traffic sites.
