Like most people on this forum, I used to surf many different traffic exchanges - I always felt that the more I could surf, the more my ad would be seen, so I'd try and jump around as much as possible to build up credits in multiple exchanges.

 

As time went on I learned which ones gave the best results, the most traffic in the shortest time possible, and the highest response rates.

 

But then a few weeks/months ago, after reading a post on this very forum, I started concentrating more on Easy Hits 4U again... Now, this is a traffic exchange I've used for many years and it's always been reliable, but after spending more time on it recently and giving it more careful attention I realised that I'd been massively under-using it.

 

There aren't that many traffic exchanges which actually deliver hundreds of hits to your site in a matter of hours, but this one does. Not only that, but because they have over 1.5 MILLION members, of which there are frequently around a thousand surfing at any one time, I'm seeing that a HUGE proportion of my traffic there is comprised of unique visits.

 

Most traffic exchanges, you end up with your ad being viewed over and over again by the same people. Yes, there's merit in repetition to a degree but after a while everyone just gets bored with seeing the same pages over and over.

 

With an audience of more than 1.5 million potential leads/buyers/referrals you're not going to saturate your audience any time soon!

 

So, since time is limited and I only have so many hours a day to surf TE's, I've changed my strategy and I now surf Easy Hits 4U almost exclusively (apologies to the other TE owners on here).

 

Is anyone else focusing this narrowly on one particular TE or mailer?

To be honest, I stopped surfing Traffic Exchanges altogether for close to a year as I was focusing on Social Media marketing instead. However, recently, I have been focusing on ClickVoyager and TrafficAdbar although I am also at EasyHits4U. I agree with you about EasyHits4U delivering hundreds of hits in a matter of hours. When I have surfed there and assigned credits, I have noticed that they are gone literally within minutes.

based on my experience i guess viral mailers and safelist are much better in getting leads in traffic exchanges because in viral mailers it's more personal and using email as marketing medium which is in your face marketing rather than traffic exchangers most of them there are already might have the offer you're offering and they just clicked in because of the traffic credits they're going to earn and not because they're interested in you offer.

I have used banner ads with Easyhits4u, these have worked for me because they got quite a lot of impressions per day (about 800 imp. per banner) and conversions were good. It was already several years ago and not sure how fast now impressions are delivered. Text ads and surf sites did not work for me.

viral mailers with built-in manual surfing i find it more responsive than the traditional separate platform.

i recommend listsurfing very responsive.

Hi Dave,

You brought up some interesting points. I'm a member of Easy Hits 4U but I haven't surf it in years.

I think that I should check it out for the reasons that you mentioned and start promoting it again.

Currently, I use Viral Mailers/Safelists/Solos and etc...

I prefer focusing all my effort on one exchange that has 10 ways to earn credits, but lets you spend them on any one of the 10 ways to get traffic (or all of them). Even better, they pay cash bonuses to make it worthwhile even if your ads don't convert.

i think the real signups comes now from safelists and viral mailers because it's using email as a direct contact.

That fits the post I made above, where I can use all 10 methods for gaining credits and only spend them on Solo Ads that get sent through email. Of course like most safelists and viral mailers, the members can elect to read them on the website instead.

I understand your point. Early in my IM career the massess would 
endorse the idea of using multiple exchanges. I do not completely
disagree, however, I have noticed that I've transistioned into
using one to two traffic exchanges. 
 
This, of course, was determined after closely monitoring several exchanges.
 
Easy Hits 4 U is certainly one of the two I frequent.
 
Reason #1 - I find the members there to be much more responsive.
Reason #2 - I get FAR more unique visits (probably due to large membership)
Reason #3 - Astronomical value as an upgraded member.
 
Upgrade there and they spoil you!
 
These days, my TE strategy involves focusing on one upgraded membership. For the other traffic exchanges that I'm a member of, I purchase credits (this way it's hands off).

If I remember correctly the big idea for using many exchanges was because it was very common to have longer timers back then, everyone had like 30 second timers to view each page, so in 30 seconds you could go through several exchanges and by the time you're through you end up back at the beginning without having to wait for the timer.

 

Now days either you have options for timer length like at EasyHits4U, or the exchanges have very short timers so that you can practically keep clicking with just one or two exchanges. I remember there was a big debate at one point about how long timers should be, but nonetheless they became shorter and shorter across the industry.

now they open up the website in another tab with no frames and the traffic exchange itself is opened on the first tab, and they retained the website after a short timer of 10 seconds.

Has anyone else noticed there's ben a sudden big change in traffic from EasyHits4U over the past few days?

 

After only recently posting about how fast they delivered traffic, it's slowed down to a crawl. 

 

I wondered whether anyone had any thoughts on why this might be?

I enjoyed this thread and agree with many of the replies. Like you @davepilgrim, I had focused a time on Easy Hits 4u for the same reasons. The fact that you get a lot of users and unique hits was and is very good.

 

For my own choice and having surfed many over the years, I now focus on one mainly, which is TrafficAdBar, which I like for a number of reasons. A, its english and owned by a guy who lives in the next county to me, though I don't know him personally. B) its always ranked at #1 in Traffic Hoopla, whose owner I have followed since they started producing the rankings and lastly, a combination of I know who is watching my ads, plus they pay good commissions and I have had opt ins from TAB

 

Conversly, I also use mailers extensively, because they are shown and proven to be list builders. I have had opt ins from SOTAM, Adchiever, Free Advertising For You to name but a few and again I go by the rankings in Hoopla, because they are nearly always good and right.
