How to increase website traffic that converts with little effort
As most of us probably know, there are a lot of really good traffic exchange sites out there, but it is not always easy to find them. Sure, it is easy to just find new TE’s daily and join up. It doesn’t take much effort to join and then we can spend some time clicking to earn some credits, add our target site URL to that system and assign those credits. After a short time that can be quite a reasonable amount of traffic coming from those sites, viewing your site that you added. But the thing is, is it useful traffic?
The ‘basic’ TE’s (Traffic exchange) we will be using in this method. More will be added to the bottom of this post in the future so check back.
Not all website traffic is equal
Are you getting results from your TE traffic? For example, making sales, getting referrals, signups or commissions? It is really important to realise not all website traffic is equal. On some TE’s it could be a case where you have to use 1000 credits or hits to get one conversion (sale, signup, referral etc) where as on other maybe it’s more like 200 for one. Which would you prefer?
Things change frequently with the online world and it certainly isn’t easy trying to keep up with which free traffic exchanges are giving the best results for your time invested. Many of the TE’s I am talking about here are free to join even though I am upgraded in a few to make the most of other advantages they have to offer. A point to remember is that even if you belong to a free traffic site, to earn credits, set up your site URL’s and add your banners, this all takes time. So it is costing you time. I think you would agree the less time we have to spend, the better, right?
So what if there was a way to join sites that we could get lots of credits on quickly (even if it is on lower converting traffic exchanges ) and somehow be able to use those credits in a more efficient way? A free traffic system where we dont have to spend a lot of time to get a large number of credits, but still get higher conversions on our offers or programs. One where once it is set up, it would only require us to maintain it a few times a month.
Well I have a few such systems in place and they run 24/7 and mostly all I do is sign in to the sites a few times a month, occassionally do a little clicking and assigning and thats it. These systems run for me all the rest of time, 99% on auto. This is what I want to show you how to set up for yourself.
The basic traffic exchange
You can see more on which traffic exchange sites are my most favoured on my other posts along with all the reasons why. But for this exercise, we will be using what I refer to as ‘basic traffic exchanges’. Do get me wrong, many of these sites have many features and are far from basic, but from my experience I have gotten ‘basic’ results from them and I only use them for a ‘basic’ function – to get quick and easy traffic to send to another site where the results you receive will be far superior. These other sites are called traffic co-ops. They are kind of like a TE that exchanges traffic between many sites cooperatively. We will use these sites in this example to ‘clean up’ the results we will get from our target site(s).
Once you have logged in to your newly joined TE basic site, you will want to check out the home page carefully. Most of these sites I call the ‘basic’ sites are built around the real time script and are becoming very common. They are all similar in design but not the same because they can be customized. Some of the owners have special offers to entice new members. For example, one I joined recently gave 5000 credits and also an upgrade from pro (standard member) to lifetime JV (medium membership) just for joining and surfing 100 sites. That’s a pretty healthy start towards getting some decent free website traffic to our target!
They also differ in that some just feature surfing, but the ones we want have both surfing and solo ads. The reason for this is you can find different areas on the website where you can view solo ads to earn credits and you can earn them really fast!
You can see in this example above, you get 3500 credits for viewing 1 solo! This amount can differ considerably from site to site, but that doesn’t matter – you will still accumulate credits quickly.
After you have looked around and checked if you can get any bonuses or promo codes on the home page, it is time to set up your URL(s) for your Co-op sites. Normally on these RTS (real time script) kind of sites, you will find the ‘add your sites’ section under the ‘Advertising’ section from the menu on the left. Next, you will want to join a TE Coop site or two.
These are two great Co-op’s I get good results from and we will be using in this method. More will be added to the bottom of this post in the future so check back.
When you join up with a traffic co-op, what you are going to need is the co-op link NOT the referral link. For both of these sites it should be fairly easy to find. For Global Ad Network it should look something like http://globaladnetwork.net/co-op/12345 – where ‘12345’ is your ID number and for Explosive traffic – http://explosivetraffic.net/coop/YourUserName – where YourUserName is the user name you created when you signed up.
These co-op links are what you will add in the ‘add new sites’ section of your ‘basic’ sites. Note: Sometimes you will find the Traffic exchange admin may reject these co-op links for various reasons. Maybe some of the pages shown across them hold up the surf or whatever, it really seems to come down to what the admin believes. If this happens there are a couple of options.
You can always try to find more of the basic sites. There really are many of them. Again you just want them to be able to accumulate credits quickly, which will equate to free website traffic for you. Either by you clicking solo ads, where you can get credits fast, or by surfing – many of them give 3, 4, or even more credits per site viewed. Usually they only have about a 4 or 5 second timer. So even surfing on them can be a quick way of getting credits fast. So when you find a new one, try it out to see if they accept your co-op link.
Another way I have found to do things is to send the traffic from the ‘basic sites’ to a rotator. Then from the rotator to the co-ops and finally from the co-ops to your target site. This graphic shows the included rotator setup.
If you don’t belong to a good rotator, this is what I use and recommend here The rotator is great for tracking the hits during any given time.
So that is pretty much ‘one little system’ to use that once set up, will run 24/7 pushing traffic through it until it gets to your target site. It really doesn’t take much effort to maintain it by topping up the credits in the basic sites once in a while. Make a point to log into them at least once a month to check on everything, as a lot of them give you a bonus ad pack each month for signing in at least once.
The traffic Co-op’s differ in what they have to offer, but usually allow you to enter at least two URL’s. Global Ad Network allows 5 and Explosive Traffic allows 10. I will be adding a new post focussing on Co-op’s and all their advantages soon.
Once you have set up all the URL’s, dont forget you can also add banners and text ads too – and stack them up with heaps of credits! The great thing about setting something up like this is it allows you to get on with something else. We all lead busy lives right? We dont want to be endlessly clicking for credits when you can quite easily do this and use your time more wisely.
Dont forget to check back regularly for updates on the ‘basic sites’ and Co-op’s to use.
I hope you found this post on a timesaving way to get free website traffic to your target site, and get results interesting. Cheers.
