Traffic Exchange Sites

Does anyone have any success with traffic exchange sites? I realize most of the people seeing my page are just trying to promote their own business, but if my page gets out there enough, somebody might have an interest. So what I'm trying to figure out, is how much should I put into surfing these sights. Anybody want to share their experience with me. thanks.

  • Hi! I have submitted my link to a few a these companies and hits is all I get. No sales, no new consultants, but a ton of hits. Since January 1st I've had over 500 hits on one link but nobody buying or signing up. People are only clicking on links to get credit so that their ad will continue to run. I'm pretty sure that if they run out of credits their ad will not show up. I have totally given up on these types of sites cause it just seems like a huge waste of time. Just my opinion though. Hope this helps.

  • Link exchanges are good for building backlinks to your site. Search engines love those. Just doing them for traffic sake, won't help much. Not unless you're getting on a high PR website.

  • I spend maybe 30 minutes+ TOTAL a week on traffic exchanges.  I've had the best results with Shopping With Moms and Traffic Splash.

  • Traffic exchanges are essentially business-to-business. You may get plenty of hits and a tiny bit of income off pages not selling business stuff, but efficiency would be low. There is no perfect formula, but people who are most successful with traffic exchanges usually involve practices most people aren't willing to do. Such as spending money on hits instead of surfing, selling their own product (usually a remix on some popular pseudo-business subject), and not babysitting downline - just making sales.
    If you'd really like the "dirty" details, sign up for the traffic exchange called SWAT Traffic. The surfing is spectacularly average compared to other TEs but what you want to do is grab the offer to get the "Captain" upgrade and go to the weekly conferences. Just one tip. Understand these are BUSINESS people, they care about business, not being sweet-talking BSers
