Traffic Exchange Programs

Traffic Exchange Programs

I tried three traffic exchange programs for my new blog and I am still using two of these traffic exchange programs. At first, it was just an experiment for me and now I am beginning to like it. Well, I was able to get some good and bad results. Anyway, let me discuss to you thoroughly my experiences on these three traffic programs I am using right now.

This is the first traffic exchange program that I tried on my new blog. I came upon this site while surfing for potential traffic exchange program that would suit my blog. I read some feedback before I signed up on the site. Some feedback were positive but  there were negative feedback as well. Still, I gave it a shot. I joined, read the FAQ, then uploaded the Entrecard business Card 2.0 on my blog. Anyway, Entrecard features the following:
  • Instant increase on web traffic
  • Reaching new customers which will generate increase in sales and revenue
  • Tools in the dashboard that would allow a blogger to network and make new friends with other bloggers. Once you get to view other business cards, you can communicate with other bloggers through a private messaging system.
  • This a chance for you to increase your rate on, a website responsible for rating internet traffic on a particular website or blog. The higher rating you achieve, the more traffic you get on your blog or website. 
  • Prompt and efficient customer service 
How it works?
Once you downloaded the Entrecard business Card 2.0, you can start advertising. You can visit other members of Entrecard and then press the "drop" portion on the card. In addition, other members will also get to visit your site and drop on your card. Every time you drop a card, you earn 1 EC  credit. Once you earned enough credits, you can buy ad space on other sites or blogs for 24 hours. It is quite easy to learn the platform on Entrecard. Familiarize its functions and for sure you would be successful in this program.

My verdict: 
I have been using this traffic exchange program for almost a month now. So far, I do not have high traffic returns. It is time consuming to open some blogs or sites. Most members only stay on the blog for a short period of time. However, on a positive note, I get to exchange some links with other fellow bloggers. In addition, I also discover more blogs that have interesting content. All in all, it is fair enough especially if you have ample time to browse other sites. Review
This is another traffic exchange program that I signed up. I have been in this program for almost two weeks now. EasyHits4U features the following services:
  • 1:1 Traffic Exchange
  • Manual surfing
  • 20 seconds or more per visit
  • Guaranteed unique hits 24/7
  • 5 levels referral program
  • Earn cash for active surfing, you get to earn US$0.30 for every 1,000 sites you viewed
  • Geo Targeting of your ads
  • Promote up to 15 sites or blogs
  • Surfing and referral contests
  • Promote site with unlimited banners and text ads
  • 50 free credits & 500 text ad impressions upon sign up
How it works? 
This is a 1:1  traffic exchange site. For every site you visit using the system, you get one visitor to your website. You stay on the site for about 20 seconds or more which is good since your site or blog might pique the interest of your readers. You can surf around 300 sites per day. However, for some international countries, there is a limit on the number of sites to surf. Premium members receive much more sites to surf.

My verdict:
This is a good traffic exchange program for entry level bloggers. You can really earn instant traffic on your site or blog. At first, I got around less than 50 views with Entrecard but with EasyHits4U, I get tremendous increase on my traffic each day. I get around 200 to 300 views a day. This is good to increase visibility and ranking in some search engines. In addition, their customer service is quite accommodating and prompt in replying inquiries from members. I have observed that most of the users on the site are PTC users. It is great for these users since they can get direct referrals for their PTC sites. As for my blog, it is indeed great to increase traffic but later on, I realized that it has weak conversion points. I never have a chance to earn from these views. I would not recommend this site for those who have Google Adsense account since it is against their rules. This is good for new blogs but later on, once you get established, you can start getting more traffic without the aid of traffic exchange programs. All in all, traffic exchange programs have helped a  lot of newbies and EasyHits4U is just one of the most reliable traffic exchange programs that would generate high traffic to any blogs or sites.

When, I started planning to write about traffic exchange programs, I was surprised to receive a news from that they are going to close by January 31st, 2012. It is sad to see this site goes. I have a very brief experience from this site but I can say that I earned some traffic and even earned a little amount of income. I wish for the best for the site owner, staffs and other fellow bloggers.

  1. Adgitize was the best. I use Entrecard at the moment and you're right, the round robin activity of "I drop you, you drop me" is kinda tiring sometimes. At the moment, I'm trying to improve my organic traffic so that I can stop using traffic exchange programs.

    1. Yeah, same here I am trying to figure out the best way to increase my organic traffic. My blog is still new, I am learning a lot of things from fellow bloggers like you. Anyway, thanks for dropping by.

  2. What a great post. It gives a lot of very valuable idea that every reader could be interested and learned from. I’d like to thank for the author of this post, Great job!

    1. Thanks Christian, hope you can visit here often and share your ideas. :)
