I recently tested a few and can't say I had much success with any so thought I'd check what everyone else has to say about it. What do you think about Traffic Exchange sites are they useful to you or just a waste of time? If they are useful to you than which Traffic Exchange do you think is the best and why? Do NOT respond with any referral links!

As faln_angel said, it just takes time but TE works. The more members a TE has then better. Some sites are more responsive, though. FE I had always best results with TopSurfer. Actually, if you want to get results you have to surf 5 - 10 sites a day about an hour, at least a month. When you're doing 5 at the same time it will take 1-2 hours. 10 is too much, I'm afraid, the TE owners and gurus are suggesting 4 at the same time but I noticed 5 is possible if you make two groups: 10 second sites first and then 15-20 second sites. It would add up hundreds of hits to your site daily, and with such an amount you will get referrals for sure.

Thanks for your answer! I did 5 at a time also for about a week and maybe got around 4000 views from T.E sites and the result was 0 sign ups.

With a traffic exchange you should only promote a very fast loading page because people will only look at it for a few seconds and if loads in less that a second or two you lost them. You also should realize that people are looking to earn credits to promote their business, so you should use traffic exchanges to either give away something of value to them for free, or something that will do more to help them promote their business. Traffic-Swarm does get good results, as long as you promote something that goes along with guidelines I just gave. Another traffic-exchange I like is Traffic-Splash because you can earn hundreds of hits to your sites in just an hour. If you upgrade you can earn cash from your referral's upgrade or referral purchases. To check out these TEs for yourself you can find banner links on my profile page here at myLot.

I see, yea I have noticed a lot of them don't allow PTP so guess the only gain you get most of them don't like members using them for :) Thanks for replying to my discussion!

Surfers in traffic exchanges are always in a hurry to get hits for their links. In order to be effective with tx, use a squeeze page where you can get their attention and enable these surfers to check your offer at a later time using an email capture form. PM me for details if you want.

No thanks, I could code that myself I just don't see why someone would give out their email so willingly. I never enter my email unless I get something and I know that something isn't spam. Maybe you are better at making those pages I would just never give my email so I have a hard time thinking others would. I did have some success with one of those STOP sign sites that many are using and it probably gets peoples attention but as far as bothering with reading the rest of the site I just don't know if anyone bothers.

i think that traffic exchange sites are good to promote your referral links only if you are promoting something new, that most likely nobody does not heard of it ... but the best think about traffic exchange sites is that you can get loads of traffic to you blog within a day

Yea you could be right. I just don't think many are paying attention either while surfing on traffic exchanges. Thanks for responding!

Thanks for answering! I had no one with experience to ask so wasn't as lucky I spent a few days testing them and just as your friends say they seem to be a waste of time.
