Manual Traffic Exchanges Filling the Traffic Void.

The viability of a traffic exchange solution

Can manual traffic exchanges fill the traffic void for you? MTEs come a dime a dozen on the Web. Just do a search of the term and you will get about 3,930,000 results. That having been said, they are people who say traffic exchanges really work, and others who feel that they are a waste of time. However, as with most other systems on the Web, there is a method of using manual traffic exchanges that will help you to get the best results, so you need to do your homework.

There are many manual traffic exchanges that depend on bells and whistles to attract members, they present games to play, bonus credits for answering questions while surfing, (some of the questions are to discourage cheating, and failure to answer them correctly could result in the suspension of your account); but first you need to know your target audience.

Most people who use traffic exchanges – manual and auto – are not looking to join your program or buy your product, they are looking for the same thing you are. How to get more traffic to their website or product page. They are looking for information. Information is what sells on traffic exchanges, information on how to get more traffic to the members’ websites/pages.

Traffic exchanges can be useful

So how does this help you if you are not selling information? The answer is splash pages and squeeze pages! Use splash pages and squeeze pages to collect leads, then develop personal relationship with them and introduce them to your product or service.

Next you’ll need to find the best traffic exchanges for your purposes. Different people have success with different traffic exchanges even when they promote the same page. Why? The answer to this question will depend on a number of things… What time you surf, how often you surf, etc.

To join a few traffic exchanges for driving traffic to your website, you will need a tabbed browser such as Firefox or Chrome. Firefox is highly recommended because of the extra virus protection it provides, but some have had issues with that browser, so if Firefox won’t work for you try Google Chrome, which is also tabbed, or another tabbed browser of your choice.

Learn the TE features and procedures

Set up your traffic exchanges in groups according to their timer. Timers run anywhere from 10 to 60 seconds, and the closer the timers the smoother your surfing will be. Try to surf no more than 5-8 traffic exchanges at a time, but no more than 10, and keep a look out for the same pages as many pages have the member’s name and/or a photo on them.

If you see the same page over and over, one of two things are happening. One, the member has put his/her page in the exchange more than once – which is encouraged by some traffic exchanges – or; Two, most likely you really are seeing the same page over and over.

If this is the case you don’t want to waste your hard earned credits in that particular traffic exchange. If in doubt use the traffic exchange(s) with a built-in hit ratio. This tells you what percentage your page(s) will be viewed by unique members each day. Some owners only care about the quantity of clicks and not the quality of those clicks – but more often than not – quality will be preferred over quantity, although both are important in the traffic exchange arena.

Use traffic exchanges that deliver best results

Set a certain time to surf, twice a day if possible and the amount of time you can devote to surfing each day. Surf each exchange about an hour each day, for instance if you have three hours to surf each day divide your traffic exchanges into three groups. Whatever time you can allot to surfing, it’s a good idea to divide it up evenly.

You also have to track your pages to see which ones are working and which ones you need to change. If a page works in some exchanges and not in others, simply change the ones that are not working or remove them from the traffic exchange that it isn’t working in. Make sure to always have an extra splash page ready to try in your traffic exchanges.

And remember that the bigger the exchange the more people see your page, but that doesn’t always mean that it is the best exchange. You may get more signups from some of the smaller exchanges than the biggest ones. So if you want more bang for your click, don’t just settle for bells and whistles, do your “Due Diligence” and select the best traffic exchange that suit your traffic needs.

4. Pay For Top Spots.

The quickest way to get website traffic without trying too hard is to pay for it. These advertisements would be posted on prime locations or banners of websites.

Banners are cheap and are great for branding, although you shouldn’t expect a ton of click throughs. Popular websites like leading newspapers and search engines would provide immediate recognition and visibility to their customers. If you have the cash, spend it. Many don’t or won’t.

Start a message board, email group, or even a chat forum. Actively participate in these groups by posting answers to other people’s questions. Be visible and always include your signature at the end of your postings. The best thing about these types of sites is that people come back again and again. Check your hosting account to see if you have free forum software included. I bet you do.

An E-zine is an extension of your site, but this will highlight new information and features of your site. People will be reminded of your website as they read each issue.

If they find the issue interesting or worth sharing, they can easily and instantly pass this on to the people within their network. Give them a freebie for signing up.

8. Submit Articles.

Write your own article just like this one and submit it to e-zines, websites and magazines that accept article submissions. Be sure to include your business and contact information and website address in the resource box.

9. Exchange Ads with other Websites.

Create ads that will promote your business and website. Submit this to e-zines or other websites in exchange for free ad space in your own electronic publication. Your presence on other sites is very important in getting the increased traffic that you want. This is usually facilitated with either simple links or flashy banners.

10. Always Update Your Website.

Your website should always be up and running and full of fresh content. It is to your advantage if you maintain your website with new articles and updated features. If your visitors always find what they want and need, they will definitely be coming back again and again. Additionally, search engine spiders love a site with changing content!
