List Surfing Description

List Surfing is a rather unique traffic exchange developed by the dynamic duo Darren Olander and Matt Koshko. You may know about them from some of their other programs like Marketing Breakpoint, List Jumper, and Building Downlines. The unheard of before feature of List Surfing is that there is no surfing ratio. Well there is, but not like at other traffic exchanges.

List Surfing Detailed Overview

As I mentioned before, List Surfing does not employ a normal surfing ratio. In fact, you do not need any credits to get page views on the site. What you get are credits to send emails to the membership of List Surfing. The only thing necessary to stay active in List Surfing is to surf a minimum of 50 pages each month and to read 10 solo ads each month. This gets your website url in unlimited rotation. So, as long as you do the minimum amount of work you can get virtually unlimited traffic to your website.

One of the concerns a lot of people have is that if you only have to surf 50 sites every month, then who is going to actually see your page? Even if it is unlimited rotation, you still need to have people surfing to view it. Well, members will be surfing so that they can send their emails to the member base. Since a free member can send an email to 100 members everyday and a free member gets 30% of a mailing credit for each page view they make, you can see that they will be viewing a lot of pages to get the amount needed for a full mailing. Even members who upgrade will still need to surf quite a few pages if they want to take advantage of the full mailing potential. Pro members can send out emails to 1000 members every three days, but they only get a 35% of a mailing credit for each page they view. Ultimate members can mail out to 2000 members every three days and they get 40% of a mailing credit for each page they view. So, the traffic will be there if people are wanting to take advantage of the emailing system. And, it will be a two-pronged advertising campaign. You can get them on the site itself and then you can try to connect with possible members through your email. It's like a safelist and a traffic exchange collided! The only real negative I see in the whole program is that a free member can only have one url in rotation while a Pro member can have 3 and an Ultimate member can have 5. It will be hard to choose which program to promote each month.

List Surfing Reputation

Both Matt and Darren have excellent reputations when it comes to traffic exchanges. They have built up a lot of excitement with this program (so much so that the server crashed during launch). It is unique enough that everyone wants to try it out to see if it will work. And, people are getting a lot of hits on their websites (and a lot of sign ups). As long as you remember to use both aspects of the program, you should see a significant boost in your site traffic.

Very helpful trafic exchange site

I'm using this site since last year, and I would like to say that it had brought major improvements to my website traffic and quality as well. At first I wasn't very attracted to this site, but with time I realized that this is the best traffic exchange site I ever used. I would like to thank to the developers, they are doing a very good job, and keep up the good work with it. I'm very satisfied. Highly recommended.

Its good site to earn and get traffic

Yes list surfing is a good site. You don't need to pay anything to them, it's free to sign up and all you have to do is just click a few ads and surf a few pages daily. So from this you can add your website to rotation mode and you can get a lot of traffic and you can get cash also.

This site can increase any website's traffic in few days, my one website is getting good traffic from this site only..

Increase our traffic

List surfing is a unique traffic exchange program developed by duo Darren Olander and Matt Koshko. For this website you don't need to pay anything. I joined this site a couple of weeks ago. I receive emails from other members which have links in them, when we click the links we get credits. Surfing other member websites is painless and credits are gained quickly. When I started using this service I found that visitors to my site have increased and also increased my earnings. I found this site is extremely useful to the person who wants to increase his website traffic.

I really like this website. It is one of my favorite traffic exchanges

I really like this website. It is one of my favorite traffic exchange type sites. It is a unique site and people actually look at your pages when you email it to them. I really like the fact that I only have to surf 50 sites per month in order to get unlimited rotation. This is great because surfing 50 pages is easy, I have just started and already I have received 8 page views. This seems minimal but it's a fair start for a couple minutes work. I have received great advertising through the emailing section of this site. This is very slow to earn, but can be effective because people tend to look at the emails more than they do at the the traffic exchange. I would definitely recommend this site just for the emailing portion. Overall, a very nice site.

A good extra bang for your website

After not getting a lot of traffic, I joined this traffic viewer for my website a month ago. It has some cool perks, but it is very inconvenient. I looked at fifteen links, which were all bad until I came across List Surfing. I did not immediately receive the traffic, but instead I received about thirty extra views within a week, about five views a day. The daily traffic is really random and sometimes in a day I could receive a lot of views, say fifteen, but on another day I didn't receive any. The system is really unpredictable, but is very convenient. I have learned there is no immediate traffic. I loved my experience with List Surfing and have been using it for two months, it is very LEGIT and that is why it deserves an A.

Great Way To Generate Traffic and Make Money

Finally I've found a way to generate traffic at the cheapest cost I could find. Hello! List Surfing. Here you don't need to pay anything. Well, you can if you want more credits but, hey, I think generating about 17 hits per day to my site is quite nice for paying nothing! One other thing I find interesting about this site is how they make you "manual" surf. This next feature was very helpful to me: StartPages. I've noticed a lot more traffic coming to my site (around 23% more)when I used StartPages. I highly recommend this site for moderate traffic increases.

Very Easy and Covenient

List Surfing is an exchange service where you surf their website and do a minimum of 50 pages per month and stay regularly active on their site and in return you get an average of 15-20 views per day which isn't spectacular but is definitely worth signing up for. In addition, this service sends the ads to your emails so you don't have to spend tedious hours surfing the web to get traffic to your website. The time it took for me to do that was really agitating me so I turned to this service which will do a friendly partner traffic exchange which proved successful in boosting my website traffic. List Surfing has one negative aspect in being that it doesn't send a definite number of views to your website per week and the number per day ranges from 0-30. But regardless of precision, the benefits of more web traffic and decreased web surfing is definitively worth it.

Around 5 views daily

I joined List Surfer to get some extra traffic to one of my sites. I am able to get around 5 views daily from them. This is not a lot but every little bit helps. My favorite thing is that I don’t have to waste a lot of time clicking on links. I only have to visit the minimum of 50 pages and 10 ads every month. Usually I can do this in a few minutes. It’s easier to use than other traffic sites I used. I recommend this especially to people who don’t have the time to surf all day long in order to get traffic.

I prefer those with Surf Ratio system

Out of curiosity, I joined this traffic exchange a couple of weeks ago. The unique mail credits system really works, but I found it very inconvenient. For testing purpose, I've surfed about 100 sites and also clicked 20 links that I've received in my e-mail. But I didn't immediately receive the traffic but instead, I received about 100 extra views within a week. The daily traffic is really random and sometimes in a day I could receive 20 views but in the other day I didn't receive any. The system is really unpredictable or even confusing, so if you want immediate traffic with a clear system, I suggest you use those that are using Surf Ratio system instead.

Easy to Use

I haven't been a member long, but so far it is an ok site. I receive emails from other members and click the link or links in them and get credits. Surfing is painless and points are gained quickly. So far, I haven't felt pressured to buy anything else from them. And I'm a free member. When it comes to upgrading my membership, I have to think about it and do some research to see if it's worth the investment.

Easy traffic exchange

I really like List Surfing because it's so easy to use and function. I love how you can earn points from email ads and also from surfing regular ads. I have been doing a combination of both to accumulate a decent amount of points. Since using List Surfing I have got a good amount of traffic from them and it's all been good targeted traffic that has had a great conversion ratio. Their support is great too. I had a problem with my log in and emailed them and they had it fixed within an hour. I would suggest this traffic exchange to any one who wants a good, free way to build some good traffic.

One of the easiest traffic services

List Surfing is a great service which I use to generate more traffic to my website and blogs. How the site works is you surf other people’s sites for points and also have your site surfed as well. However, the points you earn are for email advertisements. You are not required to surf sites in order to get traffic to your site. That is the thing which I enjoy about this service the most. Also, since I started using the service I have found that my visitors per day are increasing often. The only thing that you must do in order to remain on the site list is to surf around 50 pages a month as well as stay active. I found this service extremely useful and feel that anyone who is trying to generate traffic to their site or blog will too.

A Very Easy Site!

I really like this website. It is one of my favorite traffic exchange type websites because it is unique and people actually look at your pages through emailing. I really like that I only have to surf 50 sites per month in order to get unlimited rotation. This is great because that is hardly anything, but I have actually not received that many page views because everyone is doing basically the same thing. I have received great advertising through the emailing though. This is very slow to earn, but it really is effective because people tend to look at the email more than just through the traffic exchange. I would definitely recommend this site just for the emailing portion. Overall, a very nice site.

Easy To Have Your Site Rotating

I recently joined this site to get more exposure to my blog. I like this site because all I do is surf to keep my site active in the rotator. I like the requirement of only 50 sites a month you have to surf to remain active. I do not find this hard at all since I surf more than that a day. I also like the fact that the credits I earn during surfing can be used to email my sites or blogs to other members. I like this win-win situation. I have been awarded surfing bonuses as well that earn me even more credits. My blog is getting more and more viewers each day. I would recommend this site to anyone who needs extra exposure to their website or blog.

Get a little for free - Better than nothing for free, but only just!

Nothing in this world comes for free, especially in the world of business. But occasionally little glimmers of hope come. List Surfing offers increased traffic for free, with the option to upgrade to higher accounts too, called "Pro" and "Ultimate". I opted for the free version, as my business' website is fairly specific (a studio) so I thought it'd be worth trying out - I certainly didn't think, like may people in niche self-employment who take bookings via the internet, the returns would be worth the investment. But hey, anything is worth a go. I spent an average of an hour a day, and whilst yes, I was getting hits, the difference to normal traffic was too little to keep going with it. That's not to say it wouldn't be worth it for more mainstream websites and web-business' websites, but I think for me, none of it would have led to increased bookings, so for me it wasn't worth the investment of my time. That said, the system does work, just not enough for me personally.

Sadly disappointed

I joined list surfer just after it launched to promote my gdi site. I have not made a single sale with their site but that is the least of my concerns.

Hoping to help cover the cost of my list surfer upgrade fee, I referred a friend of mine to list surfer and was counting on making the commission. It took 5 days for support to respond to my query and when they did, they told me I had not earned any commissions and threatened to delete my account for no reason!

Its one thing to have a website that doesn't work, but it's another thing to not pay out commissions to hard working online marketers. They should be ashamed.

List Jumper Sucks

I spent roughly 45 minutes/day surfing for credits. The credits I earned were miniscule and the mailing I sent with them delivered barely any clicks.

6 Hours of surfing total before I pulled the plug.

I know my way around traffic exchanges and lists as I have been using dozens of them for years.

This has to be the one of the worst. Don't waste your time nor your money.

Great for increasing traffic to your web site

I’ve been using this site to for a few months now in an attempt to increase traffic to my new website. I have to say it has worked. I have adopted other methods to get my website noticed, but the hit rates really cannot be attributed to posting links in various places, and I’ve seen at least 10 more hits a day!

Easy to use and works!

I have been using this site now for approximately 10 months, and it's been really useful. I have managed to increase the number of hits to my site by about 8-15 unique users per day which is actually not a bad number. I have about 6-8 per week from those additional visitors who actually make a purchase, so that's not bad at all.

This is easy to use and easy to set up in the first place. So long as you are active on the site, you will find that you get a few visitors per day on a free membership. I highly recommend it to get your site a little extra exposure.

Good for some extra hits

Me having a new website in the home business niche forces me to get some extra free traffic along the way to pull some much needed sign ups, so I frequently join auto surf programs and such. I was pleasantly surprised by List Surfing.

The thing that I like the most about this site is that you don't have to surf and read emails to build up credits. As long as you watch the needed amount of emails and review sites per month, your site will get hits. (could take less than 20 mins viewing per month). I get about 10 hits from List Surfing on a good day.

Another good bonus is it's referral program where you get between 10% and 50% commissions, not much, but a nice extra.

Unfortunately like most of these sites, you will likely not get thousands of hits to your site per month, especially if you are a free member, but I recommend it for anyone who has a good opt in site who wants some extra traffic.

Simply in a class of it's own

I have been using the List Surfing service for a few days and have noticed a big increase in traffic to my website. The thing that sets this apart from other traffic exchanges is that you do not need to surf everyday to get credits to exchange for views. Instead it uses a simpler system that requires you to view 50 pages and read 10 ads every month. As long as you do this, your page will be placed in the rotator and it will receive unlimited views for that month.

To conclude, List Surfer is a great service and is easier to use than other traffic exchange sites. Choosing this site should be an easy decision to make.
