Like every Blogger I'm searching for new visitors from various sources like BlogExplosion, MyLot, Linkreferral. A couple of days ago I've signed up with Traffic Swarm another traffic exchange program. The main difference with other traffic exchange programs is that you choose the blog category that you're interested in. For instance, you like web hosting sites. You go on TS, and choose the category web hosting. Now you'll surf on blogs that talk about webhosting. Be sure to put your blog in the right categories, or you'll attract the wrong visitors. Like every other manual traffic exchange program you need to surf in order to get credits to 'pay' your visitors.
Another traffic exchange program is Fast Easy Traffic. It's easy to sign up with, and it even has videos on how to use it. Again you'll have to surf sites to get visitors, most of the sites you visit offer money making schemes, that promise you to make tons of cash in only one month. So, it's really annoying to every time see those SCAM sites. If they have the 'program' to make someone rich, why don't they use it themselves? Now, back to the program, once you've gathered some visits you can allocate the credits you've earned to a site of your preference. I can assure you that you'll get visitors! You'll think, WOW, this is wonderful I'll sign up right away! Then when you go to your Google Analytics page at the end of the day, you'll see plenty of visitors from Fast Easy Traffic, but all with a bounce rate of a 100%. How did that happen? Well, all of those visitors are just like you: they want traffic, and won't mind checking out your blog for five seconds to get one credit to allocate to their blog. Maybe Fast Easy Traffic would be a better program if they insert categories like TS.
I'm not so sure if traffic exchange programs can bring you good traffic. You could get a 1000+ visitors of those programs, and get maybe only 10 visitors who really read your blog. Is it worth spending hours on those programs for just 10 'real' visitors?
