Easyhits4u.com, Trafficg.com, and Trafficswarm.com are very old traffic exchanges. Traffic exchanges that have been popular and have been given time to mature are good sources of traffic. At this point in time, and likely into the future, traffic exchanges are filled with advertisements for traffic tools, how to market, and income opportunity. Keep in mind that the audience you are advertising to is interested in online traffic and marketing, because at the very base of things, these are people interested in getting traffic to their website.
The listed traffic exchanges are not scams. They are legit and I will cover their strengths and weaknesses. Easyhits4u.com has been around for ten years as I am writing this here in 2013. That is a pretty good indicator that they are not disappearing any time soon. Out of the three companies, Easyhits4u.com is the only one that pays cash for surfing their site. .30 is paid out for every 1,000 pages surfed. It’s a nice bonus to have whether you consider this cash important or not. You can always trade the cash in for more advertising. The traffic exchange picks up a lot of new members because search engines give them credibility and existing members earn .10 for bringing in a new member. They are the most visible out of the three that I have seen around. The new members mean a good reach for your advertising. A healthy 1/1 surf ratio is given out. Your referrals to Easyhits4u can earn you residual traffic when they surf the site.
The weakness of Easyhits4u.com is that it is a faceless company. Who owns the darn thing? 🙂 A much stronger community exists with the Cash Surfing Network and Click Track Profit. Easyhits4u doesn’t have social chat. Thus, it doesn’t allow members to get closer to each other. As we are seeing, social interaction among traffic exchange users is a big part of the business. The owners don’t get involved with their members at Easyhits4u and it will contribute to their decline.
Next up is Trafficg.com It is another very old traffic exchange. They pull in a good amount of new members, but less so than easyhits4u. Search engines give them credibility. For the listed reasons, they have a good reach for your advertisements. They offer a good 1/1 surf ratio.
Their weaknesses? Very similar to Easyhits4u. Who is the owner? The traffic exchange doesn’t have social chat so it has limited member interaction. There is a lack of focus on the members. A community is not present like the Cash Surfing Network and Click Track Profit.
Last and least is Trafficswarm.com It’s like the other two in the fact that it is a very old traffic exchange. It’s new members most likely come from it’s credibility given by search engines. It’s reach makes it attractive, but, as we’ll soon see, it’s not very attractive to me.
Again it’s a faceless owner. There isn’t a social chat. I don’t see an emphasis on members. There is a lack of community AND you accumulate credits for a text ad to be shown instead of your website. What you’ll soon find out is that only about 10 percent of your credits amount to views of your website! Credits are used for views of your text ad regardless of whether someone clicks to view it or not. On top of everything else, I find the upgrade to be expensive.
