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.

Though a few such systems were around much earlier, it is inrepparttar 125061 recent times thatrepparttar 125062 fashion has caught on and several such networks have sprung up.

(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 inrepparttar 125063 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.
