Different Traffic Exchanges work in different ways. In general though they all
offer a free or paid version. Depending on which option you choose you will
be eligible to receive a certain number of credits when you surf other
member’s sites and when you refer people who join.
Almost all of them also allow you to build a downline of members you’ve
referred. Often your downline can extend several levels deep so that as
people you refer in turn refer others, you continue to gain more and more
Some Traffic Exchanges also pay out cash incentives when the people in
your downline upgrade their membership or purchase other forms of
advertising that the Traffic Exchange offers such as banner ads. This gives
you several ways to benefit from participating in the Traffic Exchange.
When deciding which Traffic Exchange program to join, there are several
features to consider:
1. Credit Ratio – All Traffic Exchanges allow you to earn credits in
exchange for viewing other member’s web pages. Look for one that
provides a good return on the number of credits you receive for each
page you view.
2. Time Limits – When surfing for credits, most traffic exchanges
require you to view a site for a minimum amount of time before you
earn a credit. This is normally somewhere between 10 and 30 seconds.
The longer you have to view a page means the slower you can surf,
but it also means longer that potential customers view your pages.
3. Anti Cheat Mechanisms – To ensure that a real person is viewing
your web site most Traffic Exchanges use anti cheating mechanisms.
This usually means that instead of clicking a “Next Site” button you
have to click on a specific graphic such as a number, letter, picture or
coloured icon from a selection of a few, to proceed to the next site.
Repeated failure to do this correctly means account suspension or
termination. Look for a Traffic Exchange with a system like this to
ensure that your credits are not wasted on cheaters who never view
4. Referrals – This is the fastest way to build up your credits. Most
Traffic Exchanges provide you with referral pages and banners. You
can use these materials to recruit your downline. When someone signs
up from your promotional web page or banner they are placed in your
5. Paid/Pro Memberships – Most Traffic Exchanges offer paid
memberships as well as free memberships. Normally a paid
membership earns you privileges such as an allocation of credits per
month plus an increased number of credits for your own surfing and
the surfing of your downline. Most exchanges also allow you to
purchase extra credits.
6. Bonuses – Many Traffic Exchanges will give you bonus credits for
signing up, for surfing a certain number of pages, or for winning
competitions or sweepstakes. Look for ones that provide added
bonuses and accumulate credits even faster!
P.S: Traffic Exchanges can be a great advertising source, but most users see poor results! Why? Because they are not using them the right way.
