Frequently Asked Questions

What is a traffic exchange?

A Traffic Exchange is a program that allows you to view (called surfing.) other users' websites in exchange for those users viewing your website. Traffic exchanges create internet traffic to your website.

How To Use A Traffic Exchange Effectively?

The key to using traffic exchanges is understanding that the person will only be viewing your site for around 10 seconds. Rather than sending the person to your website, you should first send them to a specific advertisement designed for use in traffic exchanges.

Use this advertisement to create curiosity about your site. The most effective are squeeze pages or splash pages, which have a simple headline, description or call to action ie: `Click Here for more Information` or an opt-in form for an autoresponder which allows the surfer to easily enter their email address and receive more information about your product or services at a later time.

One of the popular uses of using traffic exchanges is to build a list of business prospects for now and future endeavors.

Many people also use traffic exchanges for affiliate marketing, promoting the products and services of others to earn commissions.

The key is to remember that the most effective advertisements are squeeze pages and/or splash pages, either from the affiliate programs themselves or you can really stand out from the crowd and make your own squeeze pages and splash pages.
