Secret To Increase Traffic From Banner ExchangesWritten by Ronald Vyhmeister
Continued from page 1
When I have 20 people joining a banner exchange through my site and each one of them averages 100 hits a day - This is 2000 total hits or 200 banner impressions for me. That is extra hits I will get every day automatically. These referrals can begin to build over time until you are getting a whole lot more credits from your referrals than you are getting from your own website.
Now, multiply those banner viewings by joining 2, 3, or 4 banner exchanges and you can start getting picture. A year from now (I wouldn't say this is a get rich quick scheme) you can be getting thousands of hits daily from your own credits and credits of those you have referred to banner exchanges.
Now let's get down to basics of which banner exchanges I recommend you join to start putting this plan into action on your website. As I said above, I am personally a member of 2 banner exchanges. I have joined and reviewed more of them, but I am most satisfied with these two exchanges: LinkBuddies and Relmax.
The first site I recommend you to join is LinkBuddies. For every member you refer to LinkBuddies, you will receive 20% of that member's credits for life! LinkBuddies also gives you 500 FREE impressions just for joining. Other features include a wizard-based banner creator and banner targeting. To join visit http://www.linkbuddies.com/?ref

Website Promotion – Submit Articles, but Spread them AroundWritten by Charles Essmeier
Continued from page 1
To date, I have written some 60 articles, published to many different sites. In roughly that same time period, another author who regularly submits articles to one of these content sites has written nearly twenty times as many articles. It would appear, however, that this author does not submit to multiple content sites, but instead submits his articles to this one site only. Still, with some 1200 articles written, this author must be reaping much greater rewards from his work than I am, right? That does not appear to be case. This author’s Website actually has fewer incoming links than a site of mine that I have promoted through articles exclusively. If you do a search on Google for this author’s name and a search for my name, you will find that my name and his yield same number of search results. Even more interesting is fact that this author has written all of these articles to promote one Website, and my articles cover six different topics and promote six different sites! By submitting to one article to thirty-five different sites, I am obtaining same promotion power as if I had written thirty-five different articles!
The statistical evidence would suggest that while it is important to find best sites for submitting articles, it is well worth writer’s while to submit articles to as many sites as possible in order to get maximum amount of promotion out of each article. Writing articles is hard part; submitting articles takes about one minute per site. That minute is well spent.
