The entire logic of using FFA's for increasing site traffic and advertising is severely flawed. What's even worse is that most search engines rank these sites lowly if at all. So where exactly then do you advertise your FFA site?
I performed a very simple test. I created a simple E-Zine sign up form, separate from my site, and used a well known autosubmit software to "Blast" my add to entire FFA network, which claimed millions of page views per day. Submission was done once per day, at same time for a period of 1 week. How many responses? 1! A single response that did not even sign up.
FFA sites for advertising are worthless. You'll hear many argue that they work if your careful. I would like to believe it would. Definitely easy to submit to and exposure would be phenomenal. The cold hard truth is that they do not.
Below are a few of what I find to be comical ad headlines posted at FFA sites. Enjoy!
(1)"Get your classified ad in 5,000,000 emails and 111,000 websites everyday for free without spamming". (If you follow link you find that what is being promoted is another FFA site!)
(2)"$1.67=massive income" (I wonder if they know that this is not an equality?!)
(3)"Getting 5,000 opt-in leads daily." (1 year amounts to 150,000 subscribers. Just about population of a small town!)
(4)"Delivers an endless flood of traffic!" (Perpetual motion?!)
(5)"Retire in months for only $6!" (The state of Florida is about to get an incredible population boost)
(6)"The secret to getting a million visitors to your site!"
