why people use traffic exchange websites like hitleap or alexasurfing or tohers?

22 replies
I always see that people talk about getting traffics by traffic exchange websites which is not acceptable from google adsense, hence, if it is not, why the traffic exchange websites are created, and why several people use their?
Please give me the answer because it is very hard to understand why these websites are created if all are useless.

    Two things that I can think of...

    1. Not everyone uses Adsense. If you don't use it, you don't care if what you do goes against the Adsense TOS.

    2. There are a lot of ignorant people in the world, and sites like these are created to take advantage of that ignorance. Notice I said "ignorance", not "stupidity". Many people, especially those who are new to making money online, are obsessed with getting "free traffic" regardless of whether it's good traffic or not. Just make that visitor counter spin, baby.

    What they don't realize is that while they're busily clicking away as fast as they can to stack up credits, every other member of the exchange is busily clicking away as fast as they can to stack up credits. 99%+ of the time, they don't care what the landing page actually says as long as they get credit for visiting.

    The smart ones quickly wise up and seek ways to bring visitors who are actually interested in what they have, and the rest just keep clicking away and telling each other how many visitors they got.

      But several people use the traffic of the traffic exchange websites to give them the possibility to be accepted from ad network compaigns like mellow ads or propellers ads (different than google adsense), and also they get paid for the number of visitos that they get on his websites by the exchange traffic websites. so, this can be helpful to earn some extra money.

    Because people are lazy and want to get rich without work. Traffic exchange traffic sucks. That's all you need to know. Some people do it to boost their Alexa rankings, but Alexa rankings have far more to do than just traffic. Plus.... if you do use a traffic exchange, get ready for a 0.005% conversion rate to your squeeze page.

    Traffic Exchange won't help much. It's only benefit is to inflate traffic for artificial reasons; perhaps trying to flip the website to a buyer who's not very bright, etc.

    Traffic exchange can help you if you are building an email list. You can drive traffic to your opt-in page and thereby increase subscription. However, it is suitable for the make money online niche mostly or if you are promoting something related to website traffic.

      Sorry, in all respect from my experience they have always been garbage traffic. Not worth a penny to pursue.

      A lot of people start traffic exchanges because they know it is easy to get money out of desperate, newbies who think they've hit the jackpot with the traffic

    I know guys that all your advices are exact. But i discuss with you on traffic exchange because someone in facebook tells me that he gets 100$ per day ('amazing !!!') by using only this strategy of traffic exchange. When i applied this strategy i don't get the 100$ even per month LOL.

      You'll be lucky if you ever make $100. Here's an insider tip -- some people on the Internet lie, especially if they have some way of profiting from you believing the lie.

    Traffic exchange sites are use to promote and advertise ponzy schemes and ptc programs. Which is also useless. So, If you are doing ptc business than traffic exchange sites are heaven of it.

      vishwa has it right.

      always better to pay for traffic. In 2016, traffic is getting more expensive, but our results form PAID TRAFFIC [bing, twitter, video ads, fb,] have been ridiculously good.

    Why do they lie? Mostly because that's the only way they can make money.

    If they told the truth - "Buy my stuff even though it doesn't work because I'm desperate and need the money" - would you still buy their stuff?

    If all you need is $5/day, quit wasting your time with crap like traffic exchanges and sign up with one or more of the microwork sites like mTurk. A couple of hours per day doing simple, cheap tasks and you should have it.

    I have converted with traffic exchanges. I made $40 per sale. I was promoting freesitesignups.com which is now dead.

    You'll have to send loads of clicks to get conversions and the offer must be super compelling.

    Also, I targeted U.S only traffic.

    I go on traffic exchanges to see what's happening from the past/entertainment, it's vintage marketing!

    You can make small amounts of cash with free to join survey sites too, they ask you about things like what food you like and your favorite supermarket etc. The dog & I have got fed a few times with them too!

    Traffic exchanges are good for getting people to join your affiliate link to another traffic exchange. I tried them years ago promoting a paid survey site 1 hour a day. I made over $45 for the month which worked out to $1.5 an hour with no long term income from my work. Not a good use of time unless you just like to read other people's ads.
