You know it’s interesting as I listen to people these days and the answers to what is a traffic exchange – so thought this would make a nice blog post and let people share
their definition – don’t be shy now
Wikipedia says this……
A traffic exchange website receives website submissions from webmasters that join traffic exchange networks. The person who submitted the website then has to browse other member sites on the exchange program to earn credits, which enable their sites to be viewed by other members through the surf system. This increases the number of visitors to all the sites involved.
Exchanges enforce a certain credit ratio, which illustrates the amount of websites the surfer must view in order to receive one hit through the program for their promoted website. Many sites offer the ability to upgrade one’s membership level for a more equal credit ratio.
As the viewers are all website owners or affiliates, it is possible that some might find certain member sites interesting and thus make note of them on their own sites, sending more traffic their way. Most traffic programs also impose a time limit when members are browsing, ranging from 10 seconds to 60 seconds. Some incorporate the use of captcha to ensure user interaction.
Almost all traffic exchange programs are free, although many of them offer special features to paid members and offer credits for purchase. Almost all traffic exchange programs encourage users to build their own referral networks, which in turn increases the referrers’ amount of credits.
The traffic generated in a traffic exchange can be leveraged by using a downline builder to assist the user in building a referral network in the many different traffic exchanges.
In practice, traffic exchange programs are generally used by small business owners or marketers who either want free advertising or use the exchange programs for low-budget advertisement campaigns.
Now I’m going to ask you to go back and read thru all that ONE more time and this time
look as see if you see anything about a place to EARN money, win prizes, play games
etc. Then I want to you to keep reading the rest of this post as I think that you will see
how much things have changed over the years and in my opinion not sure if it’s good
or bad – thought would put this out there and see what others thought.
Here is what Widipedia says about Paid to Click…..
Paid To Click is an online business model that draws online traffic from people aiming to earn money from home. Paid-To-Click, or simply PTC websites, act as middlemen between advertisers and consumers; the advertiser pays for displaying ads on the PTC website, and a part of this payment goes to the viewer when he views the advertisement.
So lets hear your thought on what is a traffic exchange in your opinion and yes everyone has one – here is the time to share yours
