By Stephen Bucaro
This morning I joined a traffic exchange network. You are probably familiar with traffic exchange networks. You logon to a traffic exchange network and earn credits by using their application to view web sites of other members of traffic exchange. You trade credits for visits to your web site by other members.
You are required to view other members web page for a specific time, usually 30 seconds, then you have to click on a button to view next web page. This is a useful way to earn traffic to your web site.
The power of using traffic exchange networks can be increased if you are a member of one or more banner exchanges. By placing banners on page that you submit to traffic exchange, you can earn banner exchange credits and traffic at same time.
I have been warning visitors to bucarotechelp.com that traffic exchange applications that do not maximize browser window are useless because, by making browser windows small enough to expose only "Next Site" button, users run four or more of these applications simultaneously. Nobody actually sees your web page.
I have also been warning that traffic exchange applications that have a timer less than 30 seconds are useless because most people access web via a 56K dialup connection. Unless web page that you submit to traffic exchange can load before time expires, nobody actually sees your web page.
But traffic exchange that I joined this morning does not require you to click. This traffic exchange application advances pages automatically. This is of critical importance because user now does not even have to be in same room as computer that is logged on and earning credits.
This is time bomb ticking for Internet. You may be using a quality traffic exchange that maximizes browser window, has a 30 second timer, and requires you to click. But what if that traffic exchange, in order to meet its commitments, is purchasing traffic from a no-click exchange? You are then exchanging your high quality clicks for useless hits.
