Did you know that just like link exchange, traffic exchange programs are also available? Yes, today you can virtually subscribe to large scale traffic databases with other websites which allow traffic to visit your site.
How it works
The way it works is that relevant and associated sites will be advertising their services in traffic exchange packages. You just need to contact them and follow the procedures required. Subsequently your traffic will be diverted to these sites and the traffic from them will be directed to yours. You will need to browse all associated sites in the traffic exchange program before visitors start coming to your site. So the more you browse the more the visitors to your site. Thus by a healthy exchange of traffic volumes, it results in a win-win situation through which both parties gain.
Many websites make the mistake of signing up for unrelated traffic exchange programs. By doing so, they limit their sales conversion figures as well as compromise on their reputation online. Your website will benefit from traffic exchange programs only if the incoming traffic to your site is interested in what you are selling. Else you just risk losing out in the competition. When you have random, unrelated traffic your incoming traffic maybe high but the conversions in sales will be very slow. Why take that risk when you can start getting sales right away?
Making them work for you
The ultimate objective of your traffic exchange program is to get more clicks into your site and hence more credits. You want to browse through the maximum number of websites in the exchange so as to get the most number of visitors. Also, since these programs are quite straightforward and foolproof, you can expect to be compensated with traffic as per the amount you browse.
There are some traffic exchange programs which provide you with an incentive the moment you sign up with them. By joining such programs you can gain an instant access to cash and bonus credits online. Sometimes just depending on passive advertising techniques doesn’t help. You also need to actively pursue traffic by such traffic exchange programs.
As you browse through the traffic exchange and visit other sites which fall in the network, you will find sites which are relevant to your own website. It makes sense to individually contact these website owners to ask them for links. This way you can even build on your link density while combining it with the traffic exchange program.
Don’t have too many web pages
Sometimes the success of your traffic exchange program will largely depend on the density of your website. If your site has too many web pages it might make it difficult for other users in the exchange to navigate your site easily. This may make it harder to get access to large scale traffic. So try and keep your website as simplistic and with as few pages as possible so you can benefit from the traffic exchange program.
