Paula, you bring up an interesting debate.....
as Sean said "Oh no, not this again..." (paraphrase).
There is some VERY different opinions when it comes
to surf timers and traffic exchanges. There are some
that like short and quick timers, and there are others
that are more interested in the surf ratio.
Sean brings up a good point about TrafficSwirl, this is one
of my favorite TEs because of its level of captivity. You
will find that people are more likely to be viewing your
page when advertising on Swirl. This is because of the pure
number of contests, tournaments and games that John has
on his sites. There are people that click up to 11 thousand
times in a day. This means that they have little time to
multi-tab surf, so your page probably won't end up in a
Having so many competitions and games does have its downfall.
As Sean also pointed out, you need to find the middle ground.
It does you no good if you are only advertising to people who
are looking to win a surfing competition. This is where you just
must track your results and see which sites work well for you.
For myself, I am a multi-tab surfer. I surf at least 5 sites at
a time, and many times more than that. When multi-tab surfing
I am not neccesarily worried about the surf timer, but more worried
about the ratio. For this reason I want to get as many page views
per click as possible. This is one reason that EasyHits4U excels.
Sure, it has a 20 second timer, but I only have to click it once
to get one page view. I set my tabs up in order, so that I only go
to EasyHits4u once every 20 seconds, and I have optimized my workload.
There are many people that view multi-tab surfing as bad. What I mean
is that they think that you are doing a disservice by not viewing every
ad that pops up in every traffic exchange. I am sorry..... I am an
advertiser and not a shopper. This is where surfers must determine
what they are online for, and maximize their efforts thusly.
I also tend to surf Groups of sites at once to get the most bonuses.
My favorites is Power Surf Central which is comprised of RealHits4U,
DragonSuf, HitsSafari, and Soaring4Traffic. The bonuses for surfing
200 a day for the majority of a month is immense.
Also, the bonuses available for other PSC sites is great too. You can
often find 100% bonuses when surfing a PSC site along with the main PSC sites.
To do this, you need to keep the 4 main sites logged in and surfing to get
the bonuses at the other sites, but then you can click the main sites only
once every 10 minutes or so to keep them active, while focusing on the sites
that have larger bonuses. Often the main PSC sites have good bonuses which
makes them worthwhile, but sometimes its only 10% or so. In that case,
I tend to focus on the larger bonus sites.
If you are going to surf PSC sites, do it consistently for one month,
to get the bonus credits. This will give you plenty to use for the coming
