Why Do You Surf Traffic Exchanges?

I have asked myself this question for the last 2 years (ever since I bought Ablaze With Traffic). The answer I keep returning to can be broke down to 3 parts.

Part #1 Exposure -

There are hundreds of thousands of surfers out there. Tens of thousands are Surfing Right now and you can display your message to them with no monetary cost to you. I know Time cost money but I mean not using cash. If done right you can deliver your message in the form of Image, text , and video to thousands each day.

There is a second side to the exposure side of the coin. You will see how others are working to get seen. There ads there ideas there marketing efforts. I learn something from my members everyday. They are working day in and day out to show there ads to us. And it shows.

Part #2 Dollars and Sense-

I have heard “time is money” all my life and if you have more time than money than Traffic exchanges are just right for you. I have bought ads with places Like Google and Yahoo and found I was wasting my both time and money because I didn’t do any research before I added money to a campaign that was due to flop. Understanding who you are delivering to you message to is every bit as important as what your message is. Testing how a banner ad converts with a traffic exchange is smart use of extra time when you find out how that banner can be changed to perform better gives you a better performing marketing tool that you may be paying to deliver latter. Just think of it this way if you have a chance to test out 2 or 3 ads and one performs way better in traffic exchanges, you would probably use that one in a paid marketing world like googles system.

Part #3 Building Blocks

As may Marketers Online today will tell you. Build your list and Brand yourself. I not going to tell you to sell your self in traffic exchanges 10 seconds or so at a time. But people will see your picture and you logo over and over and over on many different traffic exchanges this is Branding OR Top of the mind advertising you know what the Pepsi logo looks like right? that’s it Brand you and you business. And traffic exchanges are Perfect for it burn the logo image in peoples heads this is Branding. Now if your seen enough they may want more information or maybe the have seen something you have done and they want to follow you. Ask them to Join your newsletter, or your face book profile, or on twitter. That is building a LIST and yes it is kind of easy. you just need to stick with it.

Don’t worry not too many people have over night success there is no map just basic ideas on how to do it and do it well.

I also wrote an cool list of things for Traffic exchange owners

The Ten Traffic Exchange Commandments


Manual, auto, hover, PTC, Etc. You wouldn’t dump all your money into bank stock would you?
To diversify is the only way to go. There is hover surfs out there that can be every bit as big as some of the top manual traffic exchange sites and same goes for autosurfs. Its just knowing how to leverage each one. Saying no to one kind of surf is like telling hundreds of potential customers to go away we dont like you. There are some traffic exchanges out there that do this.


No one knows how to do it all. Some are great splash page makers. Some are great at emailing. Others are great at building credits up in traffic exchanges. Even the people giving classes and talking about the traffic exchange industry learn everyday. No one knows it all. And the best of the best will always say they ARE learning every day.


Large traffic exchanges are great for getting lots of hits and lots of unique hits, we all know this. But small Traffic exchanges are Great for getting new members and signups. Sign up for them all, and see what works best for you.


If you woke up this morning and said “I’m going to be number one” well that’s half of it. You talked about it. Now what’s your PLAN to become #1, and #1 in what? My goal is to have one new member surf my site everyday, and like it enough to use it weekly.


I may be a little off base but, when you email someone you need to have something to offer them. I hope it is great information or some extra credits or maybe a new site they haven’t seen yet, but offer them something.

Please don’t send me a email saying you don’t have anything this time see you next time. that’s is a waste of everyone’s time


Make a list of chores you want to get done today. Then work on them one at a time, allow some time for all of them. If you don’t have enough time to finish one or more, give them time tomorrow and work on it every day till its done. That idea you had you liked enough to try out. Don’t give up on any idea ever. It’s the one you give up on that your competitors bring to market first and makes some good money off of.


Its time to walk down the isle of bliss and good times and bad when planning on being a traffic exchange owner make sure you know there is a lot of work to keep your marriage happy and know there will be ups and downs and money maybe tight at times, so budget. Its not a hard one, your traffic exchange will stay loyal to you if you spend some time everyday with it.


Members of your traffic exchange are going to help you more than the fellow traffic exchange owner trading accounts with you. Your members buy things from you and all they ask in return is that you listen to their complaints. They make your traffic exchange better. Members make the traffic exchange go around without them you have a website not an exchange.

#9 B & B

Build your brand, your image, and your list. Why do you have e-mail, Skype, Facebook, Blogger, Myspace, and Youtube if your not going to use it. B & B can mean Build and Brand or Build and Break. As long as your doing something you are ahead of the curve.


This should have been #1 If you don’t have: new members, time, or the drive. Sell it trade But don’t let it die. Too many webmasters in the business just walk away. WHY???? when a member comes back after a few months or a year to find the traffic exchange they likes and spent money with is close up and gone that turns them off all together. As a legitimate Traffic Exchange Owner you need to hold you self to a higher standard to help make the Image of traffic exchange shine don’t tarnish it by walking away.

Can I get traffic exchange traffic and have Google AdSense?

So many People ask the Same question Can I get traffic exchange traffic and have Google AdSense

The Answer May Surprise you. YES but only if it is done right. #1 don’t send your AdSense Embedded to a traffic exchange.

Step One Build a Splash Page, ok let me rephrase that Build the most Amazing Splash Page Of all time. And host it on a website completely separate form you AdSense Site. Your Goal Is to get the User to Love the Splash Page and Click through to your Money making Site.

The Funny part is this will take you thousands of visitors to make a few cents. But the traffic exchanges your using most will pay you more than a couple of dollars to get referrals. I personally earn more money than I ever did with ad sense.

I loved AdSense I made a $100 dollar check ever month and a half or more but with a traffic exchange or two I do that in two to three weeks.

I don’t want to convert you at all. Keep making Google money and you can reap the couple of dollars here and there. Its fun to do in your spare time. And if you make a few dollars from it than in vest it in a site that will make you more money. You cant afford the 32 million dollar home with Google AdSense but if you keep building and learning and reinvesting anything is possible.

IS Google paying you enough do the Math Take your Hourly rate at your “J.O.B.” lets use 10 Per Hour as an easy number this means your free time is worth $5 dollars an Hour is Google paying you 5 dollars per hour NO! what do you mean no then you might want to look to other ways to add Money to that POT.
Now its not a website its an ad site and people will run.

Go back to the basics spend One hour per day developing your website and making it more fun for the people visiting it. Then more visitors will come and then your money is starting to come naturally. This is hard for people to understand it takes work to make a few dollars online. Some times more than offline due to the Super high level of competing sites on line as opposed to the real world where geographic limitations are real. You are not going to drive 2,000 miles to get your oil changed for a dollar but on line 2,000 miles is just a click away.

Keep it Simple and smart if you think it is a grey area for AdSense then Use a splash page and stay on Google’s good side. But if you want to make more find your own advertisers for your site you build. You can always ad Your AdSense account info later if you don’t land a big fish this month.

Have Fun And Try New Things
