Traffic exchanges + Quality Website Traffic
Traffic exchanges you might say do not work to receive quality website traffic. Well, one can not make this assumption in general, but you may have had your frustrating experiences made while using traffic exchanges with excessive high incentives to surf.
Your credits where just blown away and you could hardly catch up with surfing?
I know that and had tried those TE's myself until I started to change my surfing habits and started to run my own TE together with Grant Thomson. I am sure you have heard about it. If not read here, or simply google for " safe search engine traffic".
Incentives for members to surf your sites to make it worth to come back to a certain program and to stick with it, are totally ok. They are meant to have some fun but not to make cents while surfing. Traffic exchanges are no get rich scheme to make money while surfing. You can't earn anyway that much while clicking for cents. Though you can earn while promoting TE's which deliver quality website traffic as members intend to upgrade and you will receive commission.
I already wrote a bunch of articles about Traffic Exchanges and how to make use of them most importantly how to make use of them if you want quality website traffic to your own domain. This is very important. You find the links below this article!
A traffic exchange which is set up to succeed should have settings like this:
FEW or NON incentives for surfing. Free members should receive at least 1 view for 3 visits.
Upgraded members should receive at least 1 view for 1 visit.
Owners of a traffic exchange should be member of the anti cheating group of owners, who fight against bot surfers and other cheats.
Should have extended cheat protection in place.
