What is a Traffic Exchange

Jul 1st 2010 at 6:06 PM

Manual traffic exchanges are like swapping business cards, only your online. Basically you receive visits to your web site, banner and text ads by viewing the sites and ads of other members. So you are exchanging traffic, see? :)

There are auto surf traffic exchanges, but I will only be addressing manual TE's; Traffic Exchange = TE  other common terms include... Surfing exchange or Hit Exchange,
The biggest obstacle to online sales is Traffic. Many people don't know where to begin to get traffic to their website.
TE's offer a real Traffic Alternative to online advertising for your web business, blog or affiliate programs. Instead of you chasing down people to swap advertisements with, we bring them to the TE. 
Most all TE's are free to join but also offer cost effective advertising packages.

I have used various TE's for years and consider them great marketing tools. Advantages to advertising in TE's...

  • Branding!, list building, gather leads, make sales, etc.
  • Shows your  web business, blog etc. to very diverse visitors
  • Allows you see what other people are promoting, get ideas to better target your own advertisements.

How to join? Fill in the join form, Name, username and email. Next you'll need to verify your email (simply click the verify URL the TE sends you)

What's Next?  Begin by submitting your URL or surfing, as some TE's require you to surf prior to adding URL. You earn credits by viewing(surfing) other member's sites, normally for 10 seconds. You pay for your own ads with credits, so make sure you assign credits to your URL so your ads get shown to others.  You visit someone else’s website and, in exchange, someone else visits your website.
 Thanks for your time,
Randy Fountain

I do use traffic exchanges and find them very useful in gathering leads, list building. I also like them because you also get to see what other people are promoting and how they are promoting, this helps me to better target my promotions. I believe it's always wise to keep up with what's currently happening on the net otherwise one faces the risk of being rendered obsolete. Otherwise, great article Randy.

Hi, Randy: Thanks for this interesting article. A lot of people mention Traffic Exchanges and experienced Internet Marketers know what they are ... but there are a lot of new marketers who don't know what TE's are, or how to use them to create home business income. Your article is excellent! :-)
