Free Traffic and Traffic Building Tips

Free Traffic Exchange-Should You Participate?

Posted by

Finding ways to a free traffic exchange does not have to be hard if you know where to look. Often though we can be lost in the research stage and never get down to the actual process of completing the steps to get the traffic in.

Information overload?! It is great starting up your own online or small business venture, but the information and education process can be a little overwhelming. Especially when you have to learn terminology as well.

There is so much to learn and so many things to sign up for and secure. I have lost count of the amount of times I have read “rules and regulations” and signed my name. Every site requires a password and username. Then you need to keep track of which is which and what for. Organization is the key though. Now adays, you don’t need to have a huge filing cabinet to keep everything in either, which saves on space. I have everything in named folders on my desktop as well as on a floppy for backup.
Here is some more information to help you get your business receiving more exposure and get you on your way to making multiple streams of income. Participating in a free traffic exchange can often really grow your business if you are getting the right targeted traffic to your promotions.
How To Get Free Website Traffic

A free traffic exchange is one of the best ways for
webmasters to get free website traffic to their sites or
affiliate marketing campaigns. Free Traffic Exchanges allow
you to surf other members websites, and for each viewing,
you get so many of your own URLs and banners added into the
rotation for other members to view. There are hundreds, if
not thousands of free traffic exchanges online today, and
each traffic exchange has thousands of members surfing each
and every day. That’s a lot of potential traffic you can
get for little or no cost for your advertising efforts. All
you need to do is spend some time surfing the exchanges to
get credits for your websites to be viewed by thousands of
potential customers.

You do need to find which traffic exchanges work best for
your website and/or promotions. No two free traffic
exchanges are created equal and the most active ones are
not necessarily the best ones for your needs.

Free traffic exchanges are a great marketing tool for a
variety of reasons. The most obvious reason is that you get
lots of people looking, and hopefully clicking on your
website or promotional pages. But there are hidden benefits
to free traffic exchanges you may not have even considered.

Search engines love free traffic exchanges because of all
the incoming and outgoing links they generate. Plus the
rapidly changing content is another reason the search bots
love these things. Exchanges that have more content also
generate a higher page rank, and therefore more traffic,
and increased memberships. The key is to find exchanges
that are very active and have lots of members. The more
members they have, the more potential customers you get
looking at your offer and your chances for sales
conversions are that much better. But bigger isn’t always

Some free traffic exchanges may convert sales like crazy
for one person, and be a complete waste of time for
another. If everyone promoted the same website or affiliate
program in the same traffic exchange for example, then your
chances of making sales would not be very good. Even if you
were promoting the #1 best product or service on the
internet, the fact is if everyone promoted the same
program, your chances are much lower that someone will
purchase through your website or link to make you any
money. Also, when people see the same ad over and over
again, they get desensitized to it. Don’t fall into this
trap. It’s one thing to try and sell a very popular
product/service/ebook etc, but it’s another thing when a
thousands of other people are doing the same thing.
Competition is a good thing, because it validates your
market, but too much competition is tough and it’s time to
move on to something else.

We all know clicking on ads in a free traffic exchange can
be very boring, monotonous and can take a lot of time.
That’s why you need to make the best of your opportunity or
you will just be wasting a lot of your time and effort on
something that just isn’t working. If you have your own
niche website, then you already differentiated yourself
from the pack. If you are an affiliate marketer, then you
need to find products/services that everyone else isn’t
promoting, especially within that particular traffic

One way to use free traffic exchanges to your advantage is
to join a few at first, and see if your sales pick up. If
your sales aren’t doing well, then test out a few more.
When you do find a few traffic exchanges that appear to be
generating sales for you, then narrow those down until you
find the one, or two that are working best for you. Now
concentrate your efforts on those because they’re the ones
you want. At least for now anyway. Things may change, so
keep an eye on your campaigns and if sales seem to be
falling off, then it might be time to change your offer or
find another traffic exchange that could pick your profits
up again.

As I mentioned, your individual promotions are key to your
success. If you’re trying to promote something everyone
else is, I don’t care what traffic exchange service you’re
using, your sales conversions are going to be very low, or
nothing at all. You cannot always blame the exchange.
Sometimes you have to look at yourself and think if you’re
doing all you can to make sales. The same goes for any
advertising methods such as Pay-Per-Click (PPC) services
like Google AdWords.

If you’re going to be using multiple free traffic
exchanges, and I recommend that you do, your first priority
should be to pick up a multi-tab web browser. Many of these
browsers are free and run on PCs and MACs. The tabs feature
allows you to have one web browser open with multiple tabs
each going to a separate website. You could easily put a
half dozen of your free exchange sites in these tabs, and
earn credits for all of them at the same time. So instead
of surfing for 1/2 an hour or an hour earning 200 hits for
one exchange, you could earn 200 hits for 5 or 6 exchanges
in the same amount of time. This is a huge time saver and
multiplies your earned hits by 5X or 6X and increase your
sales conversions.

Getting free traffic to your website is a lot of work. If
you don’t have the money to spend on full blown PPC
(pay-per-click) campaigns like Google AdWords, free traffic
exchanges are a great way to get the free website traffic
you need.

Now that you have read this article you should have a better understanding of what free traffic exchange is and how you can use it to gain more exposure and traffic to your site without having to pay for it. It can be a fun way to spend some time but don’t get caught up in it and surf for too long. Spend only an hour at the most each day and make sure you still have time for implementing your other traffic building tactics too.
