Traffic is oxygen of any website. The internet would cease to exist without any traffic. Your website may have best content, but without traffic it is as good as dead. No purpose is solved in having a website which does not have traffic.
There are many ways and means to get traffic to your website. They range from search engines to classified ads to reciprocal linking to opt-in emails to ezines and so on. Some ways are better than others. Different methods work for different websites.
The world of traffic has been seeing a different trend in recent times, and that is of guaranteed hits systems. Though a few such systems were around much earlier, it is in recent times that fashion has caught on and several such networks have sprung up.
What are these guaranteed hits systems and what can they do for you? The underlying principle in these systems is similar to a banner exchange, though in a banner exchange you exchange banner impressions, here you exchange complete pageviews of your website.
Basically there are three types of such systems:
(1) PopUnder/PopOver/Exit/Entry: The most popular exchange systems in this category are popunder and exit.
This is how it works. Upon signing up, you are given a special code which you need to install into one or more pages of your website.
For a popunder system, when a visitor enters your website, a window opens in background (popunder window) which displays some other member's url.
For a exit system, a window opens when your visitor leaves your website (exit window) and this window displays some other member's url.
What happens here is you have 'shown' someone else's url and later someone else will 'show' your url.
