There has been some discussion of whether or not traffic exchanges really work or are a waste of time. They do work, you just need to know the right type of website to promote. You need to promote a SPLASH page such as an optin form. You have 10-25 seconds to grab their attention.
More people are realizing the benefits of traffic exchanges online today. It seems like a new exchange is starting up every day. How do you know which ones to use? Does the number of members necessarily mean that you will gain more? Is your website a good fit for these exchanges? These are some of the questions you need to answer before you invest the time in signing up.
I have spent the last 6 months trying out about 50 or so exchanges. There are hundreds more that I have not tried, nor do I have the time. I chose some of the big ones that have been around for a long time and have over 50k members, as well as I have tried some of the newer ones that only have 2000 members.
Here are a few things I have learned.
These are the few exchanges I would like to recommend. I did like about 17 exchanges, but I have narrowed it down to my favorite 6. I have tried exchanges that have guaranteed cash amounts for every so many pages, as well as exchanges that just have tons of contests and prizes to be won every day.
Dolphin Surfing- Sister site of Hawaiian Hitz!I love this site! Tons of cash, banner and text credits. You can win from .03-$20. It is also Hover so you don’t even have to click, just glide! Also $5 for every 5 referrals. You can make some good monthly income while promoting your own sites.
Top Surfer- I like this site because you get 2 cents for every 35 pages, which is the best rate out there. Although the only way to make money and not just credits for referrals is by buying a $10 a month reseller/wholesaler license in which you resell for your $10 back and more. Payout is $10.
Truckload O’Hits is a new but very promising site. surf for cash-offer was a free referral and $5 but not sure if you get that still, you need to email Jason and ask him if he is still doing that. you get percentage of revenue of site per month, and contests and prizes. $25 payout. And like all the other sites, you get credits for all your refs surfing every day. If you build up enough, you may only have to surf once a week to keep your account active.
