The TOP All Time Traffic Scams - Traffic Exchanges
What amazes me is that many people still love traffic exchanges despite the fact that very little of their traffic ever converts into anything of value.
Exchanges look flashy, colorful and it always appears like there is a whole lot going on from a marketing perspective that can benefit you.
I have seen people devoting hours each day "clicking" like mad to earn credits and what is equally ridiculous about this is that on the other side of the computer are equally desperate marketers clicking as fast as they can to do the same.
Many of the top exchanges even have incorporated a social aspect and other related MLM like services to keep you interested and yes, clicking like crazy. Or investing your money to sell your site views to others who are frantically clicking.
The problem is, NOBODY is actually LOOKING at anyone else's offers and the truth is these services are only great if you OWN the traffic exchange. Traffic exchange owners make their money by selling credits, promoting other traffic exchanges they own or are affiliates of (downline builders) (pages with 10 banner ads or more) and convincing people to upgrade at those exchanges.
People believe that they are getting good quality traffic and earning visits by clicking and visiting other sites. Yet most people are clicking like mad and never STOP to look or engage ANY of the ads/sites that are displayed. People will leave as soon as the timer allows them to (clicks are timer driven so you must stay on the current site for at least a few seconds, but the name of the game is to rack up lots of credits, so that is what people do).
If you doubt this give it a try and look at your logs for traffic stats and see how long the typical visitor from a traffic exhange stays on your site. I guarantee you, 99% of the time, it's no longer than the timer on the exchange.
Anyone who has been on a traffic exchange for any length of time eventually figures out this kind of traffic DOES NOT convert into sales!
Don't be a victim in this game, make sure you get the right knowledge from the start.
