LinkReferral Description

LinkReferral is a traffic exchange program which you can join for free. The site ranks websites in a directory with over 250,000 members. Members can earn credit by participating in the forum, visiting sites, and also reviewing other sites. Participating also increases your site’s ranking in the LinkReferral Directory, bringing you more traffic and visibility.

LinkReferral Detailed Overview

Traffic exchange programs are popular for their ability to bring in traffic for a low cost or for free. They usually involve you surfing through the sites for other members in order to get them to visit yours. LinkReferral is different in that it relies on many ways to earn you credit.

First of all, sites are categorized in their directory and members can visit sites to earn credits. But the site really relies on reviews to get members involved. In order to earn credits, you will have to write a solid review on another site. The reviews are graded from A to F so you have to make sure you take some time to research the site, as the staff removes poorly written reviews.

In order for your site to stay on the top of your category, you’ll have visit 30 sites, review 5 sites, and make one post in the forum every day. If you don’t do this your site’s ranking in the directory will be placed lower (of course the listing is always changing). Alternatively, you can pay $30 a month if you want to stay near the top of your category without having to review and visit sites every day.

If you visit the homepage you’ll realize the featured sites in the right hand corner. You can get your site placed in that box by referring other members to the service. LinkReferral has a 5 level matrix system (similar to MLMs). The more people you refer to the service, the more your site will be featured on the front page.

A problem with LinkReferral has been the quality of the sites in the directory. Unlike many web directories there doesn’t seem to be any kind of screening for the sites. That’s why you’ll come across a lot of spam blogs, sales pages and blatant Adsense sites. The staff does check to see if the reviews are written with quality, but bad reviews still make it through sometimes.

LinkReferral Reputation

The feedback on LinkReferral has been mixed. While the service can bring in a lot of traffic, members have been complaining that the visitors are untargeted and do not convert into sales. This is the case with many traffic exchanges but marketing business related products and services seem to work better than niche products.

On the other hand, many members have said that LinkReferral helped get their pages listed in the search rankings. Some have even increased rankings or got their site included in Google’s index. The secondary from using LinkReferral is this search engine boost, but this will only help you if you are using SEO to get traffic to your website. In my opinion, people who are setting up new sites and want to get some help in the search engines will get the most out of LinkReferral.

Link Referrals to your page

This is a program that can really help you increase your online income. Link Referral is when you join a specific site of your choice and now need people to view it as well, you can use your referral link code to post on different sites and attract people to your website\blog or any site you would like to generate traffic for. As a newbie to the online income world I personally found it hard to get people to click on my referral link, but there are sites that you can buy direct referrals. To make money with your referral link you will have to invest to make it worth your while.

I find the LinkReferral service useful in several ways

I've used LR for about a year to assist with my free website, and found it helps on at least three counts:

1. It gives me visitors to my site (not heavily targeted, but at least I get exposure).

2. I get to choose sites that interest me to visit and glean some ideas from them for my own use.

3. I get reviews on my site that give pointers for improvement and point out errors.

Having said that, I have had problems with accessing LR for two days, and had similar problems once before, but it cleared in two days.

Ok, but needs to build more quality

Well, I joined LinkReferral recently.

The Good

- it's pretty active, not some dead directory you submit your site to and then wait for eons to be accepted. There is always something going on - either you review someone's site or someone else reviews yours

- you do get some visitors from there. How targeted are they? Certainly not as targeted as the ones sent to you by carefully crafted google ad or similar, but you don't pay for this (unless you subscribe to paid services which I didn't).

- you don't always have to do all 30-visits-5 reviews etc. stuff to be near the top. I keep being there with one review and 5-6 websites visited daily. And even when I miss a day or two, I don't really sink that much - guess it depends on your directory and sub-directory. Mine is not so crowded.

- this is an opportunity for people who write well and enjoy doing it to stand out. Most reviews leave much to be desired, so if you can write well and with ease, this isn't a bad place to be if you need to stand out and become visible. Plus owners will like you as soon as they notice you.

The Bad

- It seems that there are too few employees for such a huge place. So, they don't really have time to keep an eye on everything going on. Some utter nonsense posing as review doesn't get deleted. I had two „reviews“ that were copy-paste of my site's opening sentence. I mentioned it on forums, nobody replied and they did nothing about it. There are also some one-page sales pitches and similar junk.

- They limit the number of characters to 500 in forum posts! What is that for? Promoting one-liners and deterring people who have something to say?

Good for site owners!

Link Referral is a very effective traffic source that I have been using for over two years now. It is effective if your target audience is 'work from home'. Rather than a traffic exchange where people just surf for credits, the daily 30 site limit for surfing with extra credits for writing reviews encourages people to actually spend a bit of time looking at your site. And if you have a good site that grabs the attention you will do well here.

The pro upgrade option is a poor offer. Referral commissions are low and the benefit of being on the front page for one month is not worth the $50. However, the paid advertising options are very good. I pay $35 per month to be on top of my target category and receive around 500 hits per month which works out to be around 7 cents per click. Not bad for decent, targeted traffic.

The one thing to remember with Link Referral is that most people are there looking for free traffic so probably not highly experienced or currently earning a lot of money online. Therefore, I would advise against trying to promote things that are either complex or expensive. If you can present people with a simple concept that is either free or low-cost you are likely to do pretty well on this site.

Awesome website for traffic exchange program

Link referral is a very good traffic source to my website that I have been using for over nine months now. To keep our website on the top of the directory, daily we have to visit 30 other members websites and write reviews to the 5 sites out of visited 30. There is another way to keep our website on the top of the directory by just paying $50 per month. If we pay money, there is no need to visit and write reviews to the others websites. This website gets a descent traffic to our website, but this traffic is useful to increase our sales business. But this traffic is very useful to boost our rankings in the search engines and alexa ranking.

Easy to Use If You Have The Time

I am a free member of Link Referral and I enjoy using it when I get the time. While viewing sites, I am able to find very useful resources that relate to what I write about on my blog. Secondly, I have joined various earning offers that I found when looking through various websites. Every time I make time for viewing thirty sites and reviewing five sites, I always get a message that my blog has been reviewed too. Though I have not found much success with this traffic tool, I love it because it is free and easy to use. I know I need to create more time for it each day.

Thanks.

Has helped bring great traffic

I am a free member on this site and this site has helped bring quality traffic to my website. My page views have increased and visitors also spent a lot of time looking at the content of my site. LinkReferral works great for "work from home". I have managed to get quite a few referrals for all the programs that I promote.

Visiting 30 sites a day does not take much time. Unlike with other traffic exchange programs, my overall experience with LinkReferral has been quite positive.

My experience with Linkreferral

I have been using the service for over a month now. Not only do I get quality hits to my blog, but through the review system I get useful information to improve my blog. I find it to be a useful service and helpful.

So many fake promise and Lies (=. =)"

This is based on my experience when I registered as a premium member on Linkreferral.com. (my account id Faquhar)

Ye, I agree linkreferral offers a great platform for the newbie to get traffic to their site. But I am not happy with their fake promise.

For your information, any premium member who referred a new member to join this site, they receive $0.15/per member.

I referred almost 500 members, but until now I didn't receive my payment. Honestly I am a bit angry with their promise :P.

But who cares, for me.

I'm not going to be poor if LR doesn't want to pay me money, and I'm not going to be rich if they pay me either. At least I had my own pride.

So please don't register as a Premium member on this site. :))

You can check it out once!

If you have a lot of time to visit 30 different sites a day and review 5 of them and make a forum post too, then you will do well here. It is a very time consuming way to gain traffic to your website but you are more likely to get unique, targeted traffic through them. I am horrible at referral programs but have gotten good traffic the few times I have met the qualifications to receive traffic from this site. It is not a site you can just leave your link on and forget about. You have to be active to get traffic and link referrals.

100% legit... and A++

I have found that the traffic from LR seems to be quite good. The review part of the site means that people seem to stay on the site a bit longer and have a proper look around. Also, I think there is a time between site visits for a visit to count. You cannot just visit 30 sites in 30 seconds. (However, I often get stupid and pointless reviews since you can review sites without visiting them... )

The best traffic you can get is the type without any referral. These visitors know why they are visiting your site and tend to stay for longer. I have found since joining LR, not only has my overall traffic increased due to the visitors from LR, but also the number of visitors without any referring site.

LR also seems to be quite good for Google PR. Search engine traffic also seems to be growing for my site since joining LR.

So Far So A+

I just joined LinkReferral a few weeks ago and am very happy with the results so far. Unlike many other traffic-exchange sites, on LinkReferral, the traffic is real people looking at your website. Also, it's very easy to get your site indexed high. By simply leaving a few comments and clicking on a few links every day, you can get your site clicked on and reviewed by thousands of members looking to make money online. All in all, this is now my new favorite traffic-exchange and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for real visitors to their website. I rated it A, but that's only because there isn't anything higher.

Achieved great results

I joined LinkReferral about two months ago because I liked the concept and the site was receiving a lot of positive reports. The service was free so I never had doubts whether to join. Overall in my time with the traffic exchange I was able to achieve good results - increase not only traffic but also in sales and ads revenue with a good percentage. The site is easy to use and navigating is not a problem. LinkReferral is also a great resource since you can find a lot of nice sites there from which a lot can be learned. Visiting the various sites is a fast process and earning credits is very easy. In just a week of browsing through the websites I was able to get ranked very high at LinkReferral and this brought a lot of visitors. I liked that unlike many other traffic exchanges, here you actually get some kind of targeting. In just a month I increased profits with up to 15%. Another nice feature is that your site might get reviewed or rated which is another good way of advertising. SO as a conclusion I would say that LinkReferral is a great site and with a bit of efforts and without spending too much time you can find new customers for your business.

Good service to increase your traffic

I`ve tried this service because some of my friends were suggesting it to me and I have to say it became one of my favorites.

First of all they offer free traffic, free visitor feedback and free reviews which is quite good for a site like this.

I`ve been a free member for a while and got surprised that my visitors rank got increased with 20%.

After I saw that I immediately upgraded to paid member for $50 USD and noticed that my visitor rank even got increased by 35%!

I would recommend the site to you, even if you are not going to be a paid member, this will raise your traffic rank for sure!

Not worth the time

As a small business owner I of course searched high and low for various "free" advertising opportunities. When I heard about LinkReferral I thought it was perfect - I'll rub their back and they rub mine. I figured I was sure to build more traffic and business by doing this link exchange after all look how many companies they had already done link exchanges with. Well it has been 1+yrs since I did the link exchange and while it did boost traffic a bit, it has not actually generated any business for my company. None of my clients have come to my business from using LinkReferral - nearly all have come from traditional advertising methods. I suppose if you have spare time it's worth a try, but don't expect much in return.

Definitely a good service!

I am with LinkReferral for more then a year by now. I like the things you can do there like visit other people sites, so you can find some other good opportunities or tips to make online money, and the important thing to be visited.

You also are reviewed by the members and if you have good, positive reviews, you are more viewed, so you get more visitors, which is exactly the purpose of being there.

I really like the mails they send to you-"you have being targeted"!That means you have new visitors.

Unfortunately you need to surf other people sites so they watch yours, and if you are not so active, you won't have many visits.

But one overall it is a good site for getting more traffic to your site.

You can expect 30-50UV from this site (without referral)

I joined linkReferral for my older blog years ago. Yes it was good to gaining traffic at first, but you gotta put your effort in reviewing sites, choose favorite sites, grade sites, posting in forum that I think it's too tedious and not worth it ( pheww ) as I only get 30-50UV daily from linkReferral only.

And after some effort of reviewing sites and blah blah, your site rankings eventually increased and you'll get more reviews and clicks to your site. But to get the max out of it you gotta use their referral system that'll bring more traffic to your site.

If you can't expect traffic from doing SEO or bookmarking, you can always use linkReferral and services similar to this.

A traffic system that works for a change!

I joined this service about 4 months ago, and have been a happy user since. Browsing their directories and reviewing sites in it brings your site to a higher position on their pages and that brings in new visitors to your site. To date I received a steady 20 unique hits daily from them and the reviews my site got has given me some good advice and insights in how a surfer perceives my site.

Conclusion: Linkreferral is a nice way to gain some extra traffic but it is even more useful for perfecting your site design to give your viewers an optimal browsing experience.

Highly recommended!

Very good Traffic Exchange

From all the traffic exchange sites I tried, Link Referral is the best one. It's easy to start with and you are able to see results right away. Link Referral has fixed many flaws that other similar sites have with the unique system for surfing they use. You need to visit 30 sites, review 5 sites, add 1 to favorites and write a single post on the forums to receive a high ranking position in your category. My sites overall rank was 100 and a category position was 8 with just doing those 4 things. With that position I received 30 visits daily.

Now you may think that those 30 visitors are not worth the trouble. Trust me the 30 visits from this site are worth like 200 from other similar sites. Every visitor here is looking for 30 sites to surf. On other sites of this type no one really cares about your sites they just want credits for surfing so someone can see theirs site.

Only downside is you have to do the 4 before mentioned things everyday else your rank suffers.

If you are looking for a traffic exchange this one is in my opinion is the best one.

More than just a traffic exchange site

I was looking for a way to promote my blog months ago when I encountered LinkReferral. It said that it is a way to increase traffic on your site and whats good about it is that you can actually earn points by reviewing stuff.

I immediately joined by signing up and started promoting my site. I also got active in reviewing stuff and I should say that it is the best to enjoy in this kind of community despite of some negative stuff they will post in your site. I also earned by referring my friends to Link referral. My site traffic did increase and the good thing is I am also earning thanks to my referrals. My all time highest is when I got 154 hits. I never got close to 60 with other sites.

The only drawback with this service is that my email was spammed with unwanted mails. I advise that you use a different email in creating an account to avoid this.

Really nice service

I really think LinkReferral is a good way to get some extra traffic. I joined 4 months ago, and I started being active on all parts of the website. Quickly, I got more credits and more visitors. My visitors increased, but not my earnings with ads. Because the visitors that come just come to visit your site, but they don't look around. That is why I gave it a B. But, LinkReferral is a nice site, easy to use. The support is also good and they answered all my questions quickly.

And I tried lots of services, and I guarantee you this one is the best!

Pretty good traffic site

I joined LinkReferral with the aim to increase the traffic that I get to my site and was happy with what I had found. I was wrong thinking that this was just another traffic exchange site, but it had more to offer than I had thought! You could earn credits by rating sites or writing reviews for them which I found was very different and unique.

Within days I had made it to the top of the social/personal directory and I began to see results in the traffic that I was getting. From the traffic counter I saw around 200 unique hits came from LinkReferral. This greatly helped my site as some of the traffic did convert and I made some extra cash on the side from a service that was free! I would highly recommend this site.

Nice way to get traffic

I first learned of linkreferral when I was into PTC. I have left PTC long ago, but I still use linkreferral. This is one of the best interactive ways to get traffic and reviews for your site. Not only do you benefit from the traffic, but you get free advice from the reviews you get. This can work as a learning experience for webmasters. Linkreferral rewards you for any activity on their site from reviewing others sites to helping others in the forum. The only downside to this is that they tend to spam with emails a bit. What can I say, no program out there is perfect.

Amazing results!

At first when I registered for LinkReferral I was very doubtful & didn't really like it much. After I started using it I actually found it kind of fun. Most of the websites on LinkReferral are actually very good. I stayed mostly in the blog / shopping categories. The more websites I visited & reviewed, the higher up my own website went in the directories. In about 15 minutes I was able to make it to the #1 spot in the social/personal website directory. My website stayed there for hours. On my first day I received 35 hits from LinkReferral. It is my third day and I have reached 110 visits from LinkReferral! My overall website hits have more than doubled. Besides the traffic you receive from this site, you also gain reviews and rating! It's a good way to get honest feedback, as well as traffic! I would definitely recommend LinkReferral to anyone!

Free Traffic

If there is a traffic exchange program, there is a good chance that I’ve joined it. I’m always looking for new ways to enhance my traffic flow to my websites.

I found it very easy to get started and to add my websites and blogs to the directories. I often check my website stats and notice I am getting traffic from LinkReferral, and for that I am pleased.

I am only using the free service and I am seeing traffic. This has it's downside as I have to visit other site every so often.

I also like getting rewarded for referring others to LinkReferral, and if you ever get to see your site be the featured site you can expect a nice jump in visitors that day.

All in all I cannot complain about this service because I’m getting traffic from it, and it’s free.

I like it anyway

I didn't work this enough to complain about not getting any conversions, but I love the exposure my sites get. You can only review so many in one day, but the one day I did reach the maximum, the credits I earned exhausted that same day. That usually doesn't happen on other sites as the views come very slowly.

This site is actually fun to work. You can change the website you're promoting any time you want and it only takes less than a few hours. The downside is that when you review sites, others can read the review and respond to it. I've already had one guy write a negative review in response to my negative review. They could stand to fix that problem. Other than that, it's a good site.

A Good Idea

Link Referral has a great idea for getting quality visitors to your sites. Traffic exchanges are great (I recently purchased one myself) but the concept of reviewing the site rather than just looking at it adds more of a chance that the user will become interested. The forum is full of good information too. The only downside to me is it can be very time consuming. I have been a member for about a month and a half. I do not go on Link Referral everyday, but every now and then I get emails that my site was seen as a result of a search. I do recommend Link Referral but remind everyone that it is time consuming and to get the best results you have to be very active.

Works great, it's awesome

I've been a member of LinkReferral for a long time now, and I'm very pleased with it. It increased my traffic, and it keeps increasing! It's also quite easy to use it, you just have to post on their forum and post some reviews.

I have to say that LinkReferral is the best traffic exchange program, because it's so easy to get more visitors to my website.

I highly recommend LinkReferral to everyone who wants to increase the traffic of their blog or website.

Easy site to use

This site is great for beginners. It is very straight forward and easy to use. I would visit other websites, and in return get visits for mine. I got positive results with this as hits to my websites kept increasing. Customer service is good should you have any questions about anything on their site. Response to your questions are helpful, and they are quick to help you with any problems you may have.

Very nice site

I have been using the site for just over 5 months and so far have found absolutely nothing bad about the site. I visit other people's sites in return for them visiting mine. Although I haven't had too many sign ups come from them, I am getting real visitors to my site on a daily basis. It is so easy to work the site out even for an absolute beginner. I definitely give this site a thumbs up.

I'm Really Satisfied

I've been working with them for 3 months now. I can say this site offers a really good traffic exchange program. I just visit a few sites, post in their forum, and create some reviews everyday to get real visitors to my site. That's easy for me. Regularly, I got more than 100 visitors per month from LinkReferral. In the future I am considering paying $30/month so I can save my time for doing something else and I can get visitors automatically. I'm really satisfied because I've gotten more than 20 new referrals since I joined LinkReferral.

You really need this kind of traffic exchange program to get 'free' visitors. Worth with the time you've spend. LinkReferral was just nice.

Successfully Generates traffic to our website / blog

This is a completely free service which helped me to generate extra traffic to my website in a simple way. As soon as I registered for an account, I started working very hard and I was able to get 15 visitors the first day. The more effort you put into it, the better results you get. I am visiting 30 sites and writing 5 reviews daily and in return I’m getting traffic to my site and earning credits. I got helpful reviews for my site too. Finally, in the first month I was able to get 200 visitors from them. As a newbie, that was a great number for me. It is a great start for newbies. Thumbs up for LinkReferral.

Conclusion:

I highly recommend LinkReferral to anyone who is looking for a way to increase traffic to their website/blog in a free and easy way.

I Like This Site

I have been a member for a long time now. It offers great exposure for any type of website and the layout is very user-friendly. I wouldn't mind upgrading my account at a later time, but the amount of response I get here as a free member is sufficient enough for the time being. However, I can't imagine the results I will receive when I do decide to upgrade later. The referral commission structure is great too. I think I like this site the most because of the community interaction and rating system. Worth a look & see!

Continued amounts of small traffic

The concept of the site is great. Everyone wants traffic. You give traffic to get traffic. This isn't really "targeted" traffic. Clicking your link is just a means to an end. However, you will get a few targeted visits from people who search for your site's keywords. You also can get some pretty helpful feedback from other users, letting you know what they like or dislike. A lot of what I got was "nice site" or "looks interesting" but I did get a few helpful suggestions. Occasionally I did get someone who sounded genuinely interested in revisiting later.

It's nice and all, but the time you have to put in to keep your site high up in the rankings doesn't really convert into sales or signups. For that reason, I haven't been on the site in quite a while. I do still get an email from LinkReferral (as recently as yesterday) letting me know that I've received a targeted visit. I don't have the time to fulfill all of the daily requirements, but this small amount of traffic I'm still getting is better than nothing.

The best traffic exchange I've used so far

Among many traffic exchange programs which are based just on rather boring surfing for credits, I like this program the most. It's been already said on here, you improve your ranking by rating, posting on forum, writing reviews, visiting sites... And I actually get pretty good traffic because each site is in the category that fits, so there is a targeted traffic, although the clicks are often "empty". But I have to say of all traffic exchanges that I've used so far, this program brings the most "useful" traffic. I promote my blog with this exchange, get up to 70 additional clicks a day - and get some signups for the programs I promote.

Worked great for me

LinkReferral continues to work great for me after a month. What you do in order to gain traffic is you view other people's sites as well as review and rate them. This system works so well because there are different site directories that allow you to view sites with content that you want. This allows for others to view your site when they want to view that specific type of information.

You are able to view 30 sites, review 5, favorite 1, and post on the forums each day to get your site listed high in the listings. I got my site to #1 a few times.

I continue to receive good traffic from this service. I was surprised that it actually had gotten me a couple referrals on my blogs. I think LinkReferral is a great service that people who are trying to promote their web space should all try.

Not bad and Not good!

I am doing some affiliate earnings, so I need as much traffic as I can get.. because only this way I can boost my sales.. So I joined LinkReferral.. This is true that my traffic was improved, but they are not clicking any links of mine... That's bad... They just come and go away.. I think they did it because of LinkReferral's terms and conditions.. So if you need just normal traffic then you can use this site..

Not Too Bad to get Some Traffic

I’ve been a member of Linkreferral for about 3 months. I'm free member. My traffic obviously increases but it’s disgusting receiving others review that only say; “Good site!”, “Nice content!”, or “Keep it up!”. But it's not too bad to get some traffic. i think I should be patient to make my linkreferral better than before.

Pretty worthless

I signed up for LinkReferral about a year ago and used it for a couple months. The one good thing about it that I noticed was that I did get a lot of traffic. Even though I did get a lot of traffic to my blog, the traffic was terrible and I got hardly any sign ups and conversions at all. Most people would love the extra 50-100 hits a day, but you might get one sign up or conversion out of hundreds of views. I got about 5 sign ups in the two months that I used LinkReferral. I noticed that people seem to just try and get stuff for their sites and not really pay attention to yours. This is pretty useless and leaves the visitors you are working hard to get pointless and a waste of time.

Great traffic, but not the traffic I wanted

I have been using LinkReferral since the day I started my blog, this is the first traffic exchange site I used because it is probably the most famous one. However after using it I have a mixed feeling about it. I cannot say that they are worthless, but I also can't say that LinkReferral does much to make me earn more money.

When I first started my blog, the first thing I wanted to do was to get people to know my blog and hence promote it. I used Linkbucks and Adbrite on my blog too, therefore, I very much like to have my visitors click on my blog, at the time of using Linkreferral I thought that higher traffic means more people will click in my blog.

I was wrong! LinkReferral did increased my traffic, I definitely noticed a decent increase, at least 50-80 views per day, and my blog got a lot of comments in LinkReferral itself too, my viewers also come from all around the world. However, this increase in traffic did not translate into making more money.

First, those people who come to my blog through LinkReferral, they are only there to promote their own LinkReferral account. As we all know, LinkReferral requires every member to view at least 30 sites a day and make 5 comments in order for their own site to stay on the top ranking in LinkReferral. Therefore, those visitors who came to my blog are just doing it for the sake of doing it, these visitors will not come back the second time, moreover, these visitors will not click my blog and therefore I can't make a single cent from them.

Second, spending time to view 30 sites and write 5 comments in LinkReferral may sound reasonable, however, after doing it a few times you will be tired of it. It is just so meaningless, you visit other sites just for the sake of visiting and do nothing, and vice versa. Instead of spending time writing 5 comments a day, I would rather spend time writing 1 or 2 meaningful posts in my blog.

Lastly, if you only want traffic to your blog, than this service will definitely help you to a certain extent, otherwise it really doesn't do anything much. For a starter you should try it, since there is no harm using this service, but for someone whose site already has a decent amount of traffic, it does not serve you any purpose other than wasting your time clicking 30 sites and writing 5 comments.

In conclusion, people who use LinkReferral are mostly people who are trying to promote their own site as well, they won't be your target audience most of the time.

Good For Traffic - Not So Great For Conversions

I've used this service for more than three years, and while I've received traffic and comments from this website, the conversion rate is very poor. I think users are more interested in getting people to their website and use comments with the hope that you will visit. Traffic without conversion is useless, so I've stopped using LinkReferral on a regular basis.

I used the free service

I actually used the free service of this product and fully plan to use the paid service. I ran into it at a friends house while they were actually using it, and after a few questions decided to try it for myself when I got home. After about a week I upped my visitors on my blog by about 30 people. I spent about 30 minutes a day doing reviews and adding my input to the site, so to me the free service is fully worth it. Honestly I do not see a reason to upgrade to the premium membership for $50 bucks because the free program is working so well. I do think that the paid program would be well worth it, but right now I'm signed up to well over 100 sites, so money is becoming thinner and thinner. But if you have $50 I think it would be well worth the money.

LinkReferral Has Given Me Traffic

I signed up with LinkReferral back in September and I have loved it ever since. I love the outline of the website, but when you are trying to find something in the forum it will take you forever. I suggest they get a link to the First Page and Last Page, so the viewer experience is better than it is. I also suggest that while viewing sites that it needs to be a little faster. I try to view sites and it locks up every time because of all the stuff they have on the site. I can say that they give me traffic to my blogs and people are actually reviewing my site as well. I have received some good reviews of my site and recommend it to anyone that needs traffic to their site.

LinkReferral is amazing

The site is good because it has a lot of features that are FREE. You can post in forums and things like that. You can ask questions and get answers for your questions there, so that is pretty good.

LinkReferral is really good for your site, and it is very basic. The other good part about LinkReferral is that when you view other people's websites you get credit for your website as well, so it is a "both win" situation. And when people go to your site it increases your sites rank and that is very good for your website isn't it?

You can do a lot of blogging in their forums. So overall I think it is a really good site, worth trying it. It is almost complete free well at least it was when I was working with it LinkReferral can do amazing stuff for your website but the most important you gain a lot of traffic for your website using LinkReferral.

Work for your traffic!

LinkReferral is first of all a good bet, because it has a free service as well as paid service. This is my experience with the free service, because I haven't felt the need to upgrade.

LinkReferral is a website that is supposed to direct traffic to your website. In order to do this, you must "work" for your position on your section. The more you post reviews and such, the higher your ranking is, and naturally the more traffic you'll receive.

Your traffic is targeted traffic because it's in the category of your choice.

I found the service to be okay, but not worth it for me. The constant swimming around that I had to do to stay up at the top eventually wore on my nerves. I'm not much of a regular Internet surfer, so if you forget about posting and rating for maybe a week, you can find your link at the bottom. ):

I didn't have the best experience because of that--I wanted a sort of service that didn't require extreme interaction everyday. In fact, I thought it'd be more like link exchange websites or something.

Would recommend if you can keep up with the tasks needed to keep your website on top. It's not a bad service at all, & you do get more traffic than you've had before... but again, I'm much too lazy to try and keep my website at the top. :P

LinkReferral is not as great as I thought it would be

I have been on LR for a while. I didn't upgrade and pay to be on the top, so I have to do some "work" in order to keep my links at the top of the list. What you do is basically (30)review and (10?)rate other sites, (1)pick a favorite, (1)post in the forums and that bumps you further up the list. That gives you a better chance that others will do the same for you. I have gotten some nice compliments and ratings, but no sales as a direct result (that I'm aware of). But I figure for the cost of $0 in my case, any exposure can't hurt.

You can also broadcast to people who have picked you as a favorite, or something else, (sorry I forgot the term they use) to announce a sale etc. You can only do it every so many days. I think it's 2 weeks. Kind of hard to remember when I don't have it right in front of me.

So to wrap it up, good for "drive-by views & ratings".

Small source of traffic, but honest

I love the "review" feature. Other people can review your site and leave comments. I've gotten some great advice via reviews. The site is a bit clogged up with dead links, etc. A good place for a new blogger to start. I also like the fact that the more you participate, the higher on the list your site is. Participation is rewarded by great visibility.

You give a little, you get a little!

I think this website works very well, and this is for three reasons. Number 1 is that it's free and everyone loves free services!

Number 2 is that it really reflects your input. For every time you go on the forums and help someone out or spend the time to review someone's website properly or click on some links, you are rewarded. Your website goes up in rank and you receive more people to your link = more referrals/interest in you! The more you put in the more you get out and this is brilliant!

Number 3 is that it really works, people generally do take an interest in your site and review it fairly. If you work hard on this website you can reap the rewards. I recommend it to you now... try it.
