TrafficSwarm Description

TrafficSwarm is a free traffic exchange service where you visit other sites of other users to earn credit. The earned credits can then be used to have other users visit your site. The service also gives you extra credits for referring new users up to 5 levels deep (like a multi-level marketing system). You can also purchase credits to get more traffic from their network. Disclosure: TrafficSwarm's owners overlap with the owners of IMReportcard.com, LLC.

TrafficSwarm Detailed Overview

Traffic exchanges have been around for many years in the Internet marketing industry. They have ranged from ad exchanges, surf exchanges, exit exchanges, email blasts exchanges, subscription exchanges, and more. Generally, these sites are targeted towards beginner webmasters and for people who are on a tight budget.

TrafficSwarm is one of these services that aim to help marketers drive traffic to their site. The service has you clicking through to sites of other users (surfing for credits) and viewing them for 20 seconds. For staying on the site, you will earn anywhere between 1 and 1,000 credits. The random credit system is put in place to motivate users to use the service.

The TrafficSwarm ads are presented as a search engine where the members’ ads are listed in the results. The great thing about this service is that there are multiple ways traffic is being brought in. Users can post a search box on their site so that regular web visitors see the ads, not just TrafficSwarm users. In addition, there is a widget you can add to your site that shows links to other users’ sites. This is another way of exchanging traffic amongst users and bringing in outside traffic sources.

By referring members, you can earn extra credit with the service. The membership has a downline system 5 levels deep so if you refer new users and those new users in turn refer others, you build additional credits. Members can also set the TrafficSwarm site as their homepage browsers to earn credits whenever they open their browsers.

They have an anti-cheat system to make sure people aren’t using auto-clicking software. In the early days these kinds of traffic exchange services were launched, there were many people who have used these kinds of programs in many traffic exchanges but it seems like TrafficSwarm has put a stop to that by monitoring suspicious activity.

TrafficSwarm Reputation

While many people question the effectiveness of traffic exchange sites, Traffic Swarm does what it’s supposed to and has been running for over 5 years. People have seen a decent return on investment from advertising with them.

Also, when using TrafficSwarm it’s important what you are advertising. It’s obvious that most people that are using this service are Internet marketers looking for more traffic. So users who have a product or service to sell to this crowd and can get their attention will see better results than people outside of the IM niche.

Don't Waste Your Money Or Your Time!

One thing that really irks me at TS is that you only earn cash from referring members to TS if you are upgraded?! So why bother referring people to TS? If you are unlike me good at referring and you get 10 sign ups and 2 upgrades, who gets the money? TS does all 100% of it. That stinks itself.

They don't offer much when you upgrade and the upgrades are steep compared to other traffic exchanges and this is what TS is, plain and simple, you don't even get random referrals.

I have never upgraded, but I keep seeing this special offer $8.88 for the first month then $30, and you get 5000 credits plus another 2500 on top as a bonus, big deal! They won't last long, especially when you lose credits by their new system.

I wouldn't recommend TS and I certainly WOULD NOT recommend upgrading, you'd be better off blowing the money on the lottery, seriously!

Long time member of TrafficSwarm

Traffic Swarm is one of the first traffic exchanges I joined. I have stayed with it because it has delivered results. People checking my site, some joining.

You are given snippets about the proposed site you will be seeing and can choose the one you want.

After reviewing the site you are taken back and give the opportunity to "like" it on Facebook.

This gives you the advantage of choosing sites others have already liked or passing on your approval of a site you liked.

I Would Recommend

Great site that gives lots of great visitors to your site. In just my first day using the site I was able to get around 700 visitors. The site works by clicking ads which give you credits you can then redeem these credits for unique visitors to your site. So overall it is a very helpful site and one I see myself carry on with in the future.

Pretty good results

I get a lot of unique hits with Traffic Swarm, but I don't get many sign-ups to my programs. Unlike traditional traffic exchanges, you have to find an ad you like and then click on it. You can customize your text ad to stand out from the rest, but you have to write good text ads in order for people to want to click on them. I love how I can target my ads to specific countries. Traffic Swarm is one of the top rated free traffic sources, so it can't hurt to test them for yourself and see what results you get.

Works Perfectally for me and my websites

I've added about 4 websites to this advertiser and the best part is that it's free advertisement and it actually works. My website boomed from 50 page views a day to about 201536 and that has driven in sub-numerable amounts of cash. I would definitely recommend this for people with low page views so that they can increase their revenues.

A Unique way to promote all of your sites!

TrafficSwarm is a place unlike other traffic programs. It's not a banner exchange, but instead, other members have an incentive to actually go and stay on your site, meaning other visitors will see your full page. It's not magic, but if you put the work into your sites that you want to promote, the visitors will be on your site for I believe in 20 seconds that they have to stay. You just have to make sure your site has the right tools to get visitors that are viewing your site to buy from you! I see huge spikes in traffic when promoting anything. It's a great approach to getting targeted traffic that will stay on your site as those visitors get an incentive to remain there!

Great Traffic Exchange

I use a lot of TEs. At first, Traffic Swarm's site is confusing because it is not like other TEs. You don't just surf mindlessly for credits. After a few months, I started investigating what all the other features were, and there are many. Traffic Swarm provides great educational programs for newbies and money making opportunities. The survey portion of the TE is a great option, although most of the time I don't qualify for the surveys, so I just delete the notifications. The build a website is a wonderful resource that helps one get a website up and running in no time and the layouts are superior. Thanks Traffic Swarm.

Traffic Swarm Is the best traffic exchange for me

And trust me I have tried them all -but traffic swarm is the best in what you get for your buck.. !

I have been using them for 4 years now and I get normally good results so far.

Therefore I wouldn't hesitate in using Traffic Swarm in your arsenal of marketing weapons.

Traffic Swarm doesn't send a lot of spam

I like traffic swarm because they don't fill your inbox with a lot of excess offers and they let you search when you have the time and not have to filter out all the offers to see your own email. I've joined other traffic options that fill your inbox, unfortunately I used my every day email address and was overwhelmed by all the mail I get in one day.

Geo targeting

Geo targeting is a good feature within trafficswarm that allows for specific target audiences - this feature differentiates this service from others and makes it worthwhile to give it a try. The various anti-cheat features also are strong differentiators to this service. The fact that it is difficult (if not impossible) to utilize bots, macros or scripts means that the audience views are from real users, something that is a must when it comes to services such as the one trafficswarm provides.

I have been a member here since 2003

I have been a member here for a long time. I can honestly say that overall I have gotten good results from my advertising here. And that is as a Free Member.

Traffic Swarm has a different breed of members as opposed to the usual Traffic Exchange surfers.

You will find mostly serious Internet Marketers here, offering their products and or services, which to me means more serious buyers.

I took advantage of their 50% off upgrade for 1 month and am still testing it out, as to how much better results I am getting from my featured ads.

So far it looks promising.

I like the new changes they made to the site, love the new appearance of their pages.

I do have a few issues. It's not optimized to function well on Fire Fox, at least not for me, so many sites come up, without showing the timer and credits earned. So I use Google Chrome or Internet Explorer for my clicking. It works very well there.

My biggest issue is the lack of Support from the Administration. To me that is one of the most important factors, as to if I continue to do business with them. I hope that issue will be resolved soon.

The very good part is that my ads get approved quickly and added into rotation promptly.

If anyone else has issues with their support division, I sure would like to hear from you.

Traffic Swarm Delivers!

Howdy All,

Traffic swarm is one of the first advertising sites I started out with 4 years ago and I'm still with them.

If your looking for an effective, easy and affordable way to get your website or your offers up and running, this is a great way to get started.

They teach you also how to write effective ads and have a great system to track your displays, visits and clicks.

I have been using it to test my ad performance before going to the other big box advertisers to save MONEY!

Bottom line... they work!

Thanks,

Daniel, The Rich Rhino Man

It would want to be good for the price!

I like traffic swarm because it does deliver good quality traffic according to my tracking.

However it is the most expensive traffic exchange I have come across.

I have now tried both paid and free memberships and am not totally convinced that the $30 a month fee is completely worth it - I am still deciding.

I do think the benefits of being upgraded as opposed to not being upgraded are a bonus - although I couldn't believe how fast links were approved while upgraded (I guess they are auto approved) I did think that waiting days for approval as a free member was quite unacceptable.

All in all traffic swarm is definitely one of the better traffic exchanges - but for the $30 a month it would want to be. I can get 3 or 4 upgrades at smaller TEs for that one price so not totally convinced yet - I want to see a bit more as far as results go!

That's my opinion anyway!

How to Use TrafficSwarm. Com the Right Way... !

TrafficSwarm is a nice Traffic Exchange because it has a 20 second timer- which results in your ads being seen for minimum time of 20 seconds.

Once you start surfing TrafficSwarm, you will notice that it displays a page with 9 ads on it.

NOW, when your ad is seen, your assigned credits are used and not when your site is seen.

BUT the visitor receives credits when he/she sees your site.

That's how TrafficSwarm survives (profits).

What lesson you should take home now is that you need to test different ads on TrafficSwarm so that you find the best one.

You should take up a few copy-writing courses so that you refine the skill and increase your conversions.

Both-

1. When people see your ad and

2. When they see your page(s)

So that you can make/convince them to click your ad/links on page.

This will help you get the maximum out of TrafficSwarm

I have been doing that way from more than one year now and it works impressively well.

Just Updated To Pro after being a Free Member for a long time

It may be a bit premature to say this is a super deal but I wanted to share my decision to upgrade to Traffic Swarm Pro. I've been a free member for a long time but since they reduced their fees I'm in! For just 20 bucks a month you get 5,000 free traffic credits and a ton of stuff to help promote your site and build your list. You also get Unlimited Traffic Swarm Ads, Free Bonus Credits, free web hosting, unlimited featured articles and much more. This seems like a pretty good deal to me. I'll check back and let you know after a while how it goes.

New great updates on TrafficSwarm!

I've been a Pro member of TrafficSwarm for just about a year now and must say that the services has always been able to send a lot of traffic to my sites. They've made some great updates to the site lately that I'm excited about, like doubling the amount of credits that Pro members get every month, an article directory, tons of new resources for promoting offers online. I will continue to be a loyal member there! You can join for free and check out what they have going on, but the Pro member benefits are worth upgrading for!

Be smart about about your ads

Traffic swarm is a very easy and free way to get traffic to your site. It's also a good place to find new services to help promote your business.

If you want to get the most out of it, you need to be smart about your sites. Most traffic won't stay on your site for very long so you need to use sites that get their attention and makes them want to stay past the timer. It's also a good site to test out squeeze pages and text ads to see what gets the most clicks.

Also most people on the site are not looking for a new business. They're obviously looking for traffic. So your best bet is to market your traffic generators.

All in all, Traffic swarm has been around for a very long time and has several thousand members so it's doing something right. Be sure to check the blog every now and then for ways to earn discounts on their services.

One of the oldest traffic exchanges

Traffic Swarm is still one of the traffic exchanges I use regularly because it brings results. I have got lots of referrals and opt ins to my sites. What I have found interesting here is that even micro niche and non IM related sites have good results here. I have not have had good results with micro niche sites in any traffic exchange, but with TS I have. Their support is somewhat slow but they have lots of members so it may take time to receive a reply from them.

Banner ads

I saw that TS now allows you to place banner ads on the surf page. The text URLs can get a little monotonous, but graphic banners definitely get noticed. It was pretty easy to upload one; just have to have 1,000 credits or more and away you go! I like the self-service aspect, as it allows me to work late and early.

Excellent Source Of Traffic For Internet Marketing Offers

I have used Trafficswarm for over 6 years as a pro member. Plus I tracked traffic and sales with my own affiliate script so I have years of data. I got Trafficswarm traffic to convert better than Adwords for the same offer! The key is the offer has to be great and geared specifically to the internet marketing community. Recurring with a free trial helps too. The traffic is targeted traffic if you are looking for IM business. If you want to sell real estate in Montana you should probably advertise elsewhere. Also I recruited many affiliates and my monthly commissions almost pay for my membership every month so it is almost free. Sometimes I hear people complain about traffic sources but often the traffic is ok, your offer is just the same stuff everyone else is promoting or plain unattractive. How good is your offer? How good is your landing page? Also traffic exchanges can be used to bring up visitor counts on articles and videos without looking for immediate sales. We in the IM community are in part to blame for what is being sold to us. We want plug and play, auto pilot, make money 15 minutes from now, make money do nothing products so that is what the market place gives us. I wish I could purchase more traffic from TrafficSwarm it is cheap and converts really well for my purposes.

Non Response from Customer Services

I think the customer service for Traffic Swarm is pretty poor. I have sent a number of genuine queries and not had the courtesy of a single response.

The problem with this as a new user is that it does not encourage trust. They send out a lot of emails but do not seem to answer queries, so I have moved on!

Traffic Swarm policies

I just signed up for TrafficSwarm and had some questions that were answered in the review. For clarification though, in Traffic Swarm's policy it very clearly states that a member should not be loading their own Start Page unless it is to check how it would look. They monitor how often that is done (as in fast loading a page). Some load it as a way to earn points. This is forbidden also. Making it ones Home Page is a good way to be warned or account deleted.

Not So Great Support

First off, Traffic Exchanges are primarily to increase your ALEXA ranking. Second, Traffic Swarm hounds you to use them as your start page because every time you fire up your computer, TS gets a hit. Times that by ALL their members and their getting 10's of 1000's of hits a day. Just look at their ALEXA ranking. It's pretty impressive. Anyway,

I have used TS for a couple of years and I really can't stand their support because it is NON EXISTENT. After about my 12th support email about the same thing and still not one response, my 13th email I sent was a BIT on the harsh side. All of a sudden my sites were barely getting any hits. Needless to say, when it now takes me a week to use 50 credits spread out over 7-8 sites, It's time to MOVE ON. I must have made widawer mad.

Best way to get traffic

I have been with Trafic Swarm for last 7 months as a free member. I love it because I don't have to pay cash to promote my website or blog.

It has got a unique credit system and there are different ways to earn credit which you can use to promote your website. Even If you play games then you get 100 and just make Traffic Swarm as the homepage, you will get 1. Click on others ads, you will get 3 credit. This system is just great.

You don't have to lose a single cent. Earn credit and use them to get traffic.

Everyone should try it.

Better than the average traffic exchange

I have been using Traffic Swarm since 2 years, and I found their service satisfying. Of course it always depends what you're looking for, and if you're looking at the right place. Traffic exchange is meant to bring traffic to your website, but not necessarily quality traffic. Those who are subscribed are there because they want you to get to their website, and not because they are looking for something to find in yours – but hey, that's why you're there as well isn't it? So occasionally someone will be interested in your offers, but that's a bonus. I found the unique Traffic Swarm system, in which I write an ad enticing people to enter my link, better than the system of most other traffic exchanges, where people just find themselves on your website. I found it useful for 2 reasons. First the people who do get to your website, are more targeted (always in the above mentioned limits) than in other traffic exchanges; second, you get to test your ads and improve your copywriting skills. I saw dramatic differences between different versions of my ads. The negative sides of Traffic Swarm are some technical problems, but they were fixed immediately by the support, and I was told that they work better with IE than with Firefox. And of course they're spamming my email, but I noticed that I'm getting such spam emails on a daily basis from most of the traffic exchanges I'm subscribed to, so every 2-3 days I have to cleanup my mailbox from their mails.

I would not recommend

Traffic swarm is NOT a great place to start to earn some credits in order to get traffic to a website. At first this site seemed to be promising to me. I spent hours clicking and surfing other people's websites to earn some credits. Once I had enough credits, I decided to use those credits to get some traffic to my website. I did get a number of clicks to use up all my credit, but nothing was happening other than that in terms of purchases from my website or any other similar activity.. All I received was mere clicks and no one was really looking at the content of the website really. Purchasing the credits on Traffic Swarm was not of much help either. On the whole I would not recommend this site to anyone for traffic exchanges.

Traffic Swarm as start page

Hi

I have been a member of traffic swarm for years. I have stayed a free member as I cannot justify the expense of upgrading. I use traffic swarm as a start page to remind me to surf and earn credits. I have not tested whether my sites get credits. I will stay a free member and continue to earn credits. I have plans to start a tracking campaign to see how effective the credits are. Are people actually viewing my pages?

Very pleased with Trafficswarm

I have been using Trafficswarm for about 5 years now and think they are one of the best TE's on the web. Very easy to use, with good response to my ads. Credits received for surfing are good, uptime is excellent and fraud-prevention seems to be very good. I also love the free credits you get every now and then while surfing (have won 50 and 500 credits a number of times). Have had zero problems with this site and would recommend them to all.

Good for traffic, bad for making money

I would like to start this review by saying that TrafficSwarn is great because it offers a fair 1:1 ratio. This means that for every website that you visit, someone will visit your website. I mainly use this site to get traffic to my website because it is very hard to get earnings there. You don’t get paid very much per click and you need to be a “pro” member to get paid, so I would not recommend this website if you are trying to make money that way, but if you are trying to get more traffic to your website (which in the end will generate income) then I would highly recommend this website. It does not cost much to get your ad campaign started and you start to see a traffic increase within hours of submitting your campaign.

I have been using T Swarm for about a year on and off. At first I thought it was great because I could get from 1 to 5 credits for clicking and build up a lot of credits. But they vanish in no time at all! But my stat counter has recorded very few clicks on my site! Looking back on a list of stats I kept middle of 2009 when I had about 200 credits, I recorded 44 hits. I thought it should have responded to my credits. Another stats list in Nov. '09 records only 1 hit and I'm sure I had at least 50 credits at that time, as I would try to keep at least that many in my account. So when you check your credits against your hits I guess it's not so good. Oh yes, I also spent a lot of credits in their Lotto to win massive credits but to no avail! I rarely bother with it now.

Didn't Get the Whole Traffic Swarm Hype

I joined because a big internet guru was promoting Traffic Swarm. After joining, I upgraded for a few months. I lost interest and I later joined again. The third time around? No, I saw the problems it had like the way the credits are used up in a matter of hours. I had to get a new account and start from scratch when I realized I had broken one of their rules about using the wrong keyword to navigate to the next web site. I had a few downline members who did not upgrade so I lost some commission. In comparison to other traffic exchange programs I have to sincerely say it is one of the worst ones I joined. Every time I see the Traffic Swarm website on my other traffic exchange program I can't help but give a big frown for the program that did very little to promote my web sites.

Great site if you can pwn spaywares!

I have been a Pro Member of Traffic Swarm for years and I receive consistently good results using it. Spywares can be easily removed with a regular application of one of the free utilities. I prefer AVG.

A thing I like about it is you get at least a 1:1 surfing ratio or many times higher.

Good traffic but no increase in earnings

Looking for different options for increasing the traffic to my affiliate blog, I found Traffic Swarm. I was surfing to earn credits because I didn't want to pay for something if I'm not sure it is worth. The free surfing and earning credits could help me understand if it is good or bad. I assigned the earned credits for my blog and started waiting. After 3-4 days my traffic increased but nothing more - no clicks at affiliate banners and no increase in earnings. The people who had visited my site were not potential buyers because they were just trying to increase their credits for their sites. Traffic Swarm can be useful for you, but it brings just traffic and nothing more.

TrafficSwarm is the most effective for my favorite hit campaigns

I offer affiliate advertisements of digital products on my website as well as other ads from network membership sites so I needed more exposure to all the ads without forcing anyone to buy the products. I looked in to TrafficSwarm because this was one of the most popular sites that was recommended for click campaigns and easy exposure. When I joined the network I immediately earned a lot of credits by clicking on other people's ads so they could do the same for me, thus, resolving my web traffic problem. This was an instant fix, in one week the ads on my site were being clicked continuously by other TrafficSwarm clients and I could stop worrying about my affiliate's' ads and concentrate on improving my own.

Top Level Traffic Exchange

Although not my favorite Traffic Exchange it is well liked by others. I used to use this traffic exchange almost exclusively but after having little luck in promoting a site I realized that most of the people surfing on this site were not actually looking at the ads but just clicking on them and then moving away. If you are looking to do nothing but increase your hits to a site then Traffic Swarm will do just fine, if you are hoping to get a some sign ups then you might wish to look elsewhere.

Not Very Impressed

TrafficSwarm is a pretty unique traffic exchange. The credits you can earn can vary pretty widely. Sometimes you will earn 2 credits and other times you will earn 5. But that is pretty much the only thing positive I can say about TrafficSwarm. I heard a lot of people saying how they received a tremendous amount of hits from TrafficSwarm but I never saw that happen myself. I received the same amount of hits as I do normally from other traffic exchanges. Also you basically get spammed until you set TrafficSwarm as your homepage. So that was really annoying. Overall I do not recommend anyone uses TrafficSwarm. It is nothing special.

A Good Website

I have been with Traffic Swarm for about 4 years, during that time I have surfed on and off, one day every 15 or so, at around 150 credits per time. What I have realized is that I do better promoting opt in pages or small pages that are easy to read. The bigger pages most people pass by and not even notice them. In Traffic Swarm, the problem with having a downline when your a free member is that you get no commissions, I've lost many commissions because I'm a free member.

Overall I like Traffic Swarm, but like any advertising website, you must know how to use it.

Ok Site for traffic, layout could be better

I use trafficswarm for bringing traffic to my website. It does it's job. Although, I find that the site could be designed better, very hard to find things, and clicking other ads is a bit of a nightmare, especially if you are beginner. The good thing is that you get more than 1 credit for some ads (3 or 4 credits) with longer timers, so you can covert 1 click into 3 or 4 visitors to your website. I will grade it C as I seen some better traffic exchange sites.

Traffic exchange that Spams

Traffic Swarm is a spam site, once you register with them they force you to place their page as your homepage and spam your e-mail inbox with their payed offers to buy credits. When I got fed up with the e-mails I tried to unsubscribe and the process was extremely complicated and annoying asking you to manually write CANCEL and fill out a form.

Also while using their services to surf for credits, I haven't received a single visitor that had more than 1 page view. Their users are almost like bots and I believe everyone on that page is most likely doing something else while occasionally clicking to earn credits.

Half and half

I currently have been using Traffic swarm for about 2 months now and while it creates leads and traffic to my ads and sites, it hasn't created much else. I was told about traffic swarm through a wonderful Ebook I received. I do like it to some degree for the traffic and promoting my sites, but personally I have found better ways to get traffic.

Not bad, but not among the best

I use this place mostly for Paid to Promote type stuff, and it has served me well for the most part. I found the one point per homepage hits rather useful, but easily tossed aside. This site is different from other traffic exchange sites because you get random credits. You could get one credit, but you can also end up with up to five, so you can easily end up with a lot of credits. Another way to earn credits is by putting it's search engine on your site. You get credit every time someone uses it. I didn't get any results from that though.

Beyond that? Nothing special, except for the way it's formatted. You can choose what site to see, but there are no bonus pages that I could see, no extra games, no other features except for a couple ways to earn credits.

Traffic Swarm is useful for Paid to Promote sites, but for anything else, it's best to look elsewhere.

The BEST Traffic Exchange!

Traffic Swarm is without doubt the BEST traffic exchange available.

In terms of quality of hits, you can not get a better traffic exchange than traffic swarm. I have sold over 100 clickbank products using trafficswarm over the last 4 years and this is 1000% more than I have with any other traffic exchange.

There are plenty of sites to visit and your hits are sent promptly - it is harder work than most other traffic exchanges, but I think it is this that gives it the edge on the others.

One downside to it though is the amount of SPAM emails I receive from them - however this is one flaw I am willing to live with!

More like spam swarm

I have no clue as to why people think this is a legit site, I have wasted so much time by signing up to this site. The first thing they made me do once I became a member was set Traffic Swarm as my homepage.

Every time I would open a new window there it was, the sign up page to Traffic Swarm and the video playing. You know how annoying it is to be trying to do a simple google search and a video with a signup keeps appearing. I earned a few credits this way though and did manage to get my site some traffic, but it was not targeted and I made no sales. I deleted this program within my first month. If you want targeted traffic and don’t want to be spammed daily by the program, then skip this one.

My Traffic Swarm experiance

I joined Traffic Swarm three years ago as a newbie to network marketing. I found the service all that it was promoted to be, and use it on a regular basis to drive traffic to my site.

Although this is not the only service I use it has been consistently a simple and useful tool for this purpose.

For beginners to the network marketing business it is a painless and simple to use site which I can highly recommend.

Still One of My Few Favorite Traffic Exchanges!

I joined TrafficSwarm around 2-3 years ago when it was still relatively new and it still is one of the major sources of all my traffic. The basic idea behind it is awesome. You visit other peoples' websites in return of them visiting yours'. TrafficSwarm is still one of my favorite pastimes when I am totally bored.

I also love their Customer Support. Once I got branded as a cheater because they thought I was using an autoclicker.

I emailed them about the issue and they unfroze my account in minutes and it was followed with a very soft and apologetic response! Since that time, I am a real worshiper of TrafficSwarm!

I Like This One

This one is one of the few traffic exchanges out there that is one of the better ones. I was a member of this exchange 4 years ago and it did wonders!

My results ended up in not only receiving real quality visitors, but also interested people who were interested in my site at that time.

I like this one, it's easy and it's not to hard to use the system. Yes, you have to visit other sites, but that's the point, real people visiting real people. There is nothing that I don't like about this one.

I'd recommend Traffic Swarm to everyone, especially newbies! You will like this one.

A Great Traffic Exchange For Beginners and Free Members

I've have been a member of the Swarm for as long as I can remember. It is one of the easiest traffic exchanges to join if you are new to network marketing.

Signing up for TrafficSwarm is quick and painless. You can join as a free member or upgrade to a premium membership... but if you are new to network marketing, you are probably better off trying out the free membership first (there is no pressure from TS into upgrading and you can upgrade when you see the need to).

TrafficSwarm offers new members 100 free advertising credits to start and they used to offer a tool bar download (which isn't necessary) to make surfing for additional credits easier. Unlike many traffic exchanges, TrafficSwarm offers one of the best credit to advertising ratios on the internet. Unlike many other sites where the ratio is 3:1 or 5:1, each TrafficSwarm credit is worth one run of your ad. When surfing for credits, the ads have a random value of anywhere from 1 credit to as many as 100 credits for new members (most ads will be worth 1-5 credits for new members... higher value for premium members).

Also unlike many other sites, TrafficSwarm offers their free members the opportunity to run up to 10 different ads at a time. Many of the newer, more popular sites only offer their free members 3 ads at a time. Based on the number of available credits in your account, you select how often you would like to see your ads run each day and just like that, your ads are put into the rotation.

One note to consider... free members ads are in the rotation, however, a premium members ad will always be considered first. I tried having my ads run 100 times per day and found that they usually never ran more than 30 times each day, so if you are looking to drive a large amount of traffic to your sites, upgrading may be needed.

But if you are okay with your ads running 20+ times each day, then TrafficSwarm is a great site to use for attracting referrals or getting your "feet wet" if you are new to network marketing. I still find quite a few referrals generated from this exchange and even though it is not as much fun as many of the newer exchanges, it still produces the desired results.

Seems like a good way to get spam

I found the sign-up process and overall site concept confusing. It seemed like a straightforward traffic exchange at first, but it requires a fairly significant outlay of effort to get it going, setting up your start page--and to be honest, the requirement that you set your start page to TrafficSwarm made me uncomfortable. It's a good system in theory, since that very feature means people will automatically visit your page with no extra effort, but I found it irritating. I like my home page as it is.

The biggest problem for me, though, was that it got me almost nothing in the way of traffic. Mostly I was trying to direct more traffic to my blogs, not to actually sell something, but the vast majority of users seem to stay on the sites long enough to earn credits but not to actually click through. I can't really blame them--that's what I did. My bounce rate was pretty awful and I wasn't even meeting other bloggers, like I did with some other traffic-exchange sites. So I stopped using it. Months later I'm still getting spammy e-mails from TrafficSwarm (though I suppose it would help if I bothered to unsubscribe, but my junk folder is already catching them).

One of the better Text Ad Exchanges

I really like Traffic Swarm as far as Text Ad Exchanges go. Regular manual traffic exchanges can get kind of tedious, and you can start to just gloss over the ads, clicking away. But with Traffic Swarm, you have to choose the next ad you get to see, so you never get bored with it.

I have had pretty good success with it from an advertising standpoint. In the beginning, I found it challenging to come up with compelling text to place in the Text Ad portion of my ad. I've always used custom splash pages, and they work well here too.

After I got the hang of writing short text ads, the site was pretty useful.

Trusted traffic exchange program

One of the first traffic exchange programs I joined. I must say, I am quite satisfied with the traffic I generate, being a free member that is. Like all traffic exchange programs I joined, you have to be patient enough to surf for credits. I heard a lot of complaints, but if you don’t agree with their policy you could always stop, or if you want to get credits but do not want to manually surf, pay the premium.

Traffic Swarm is already a pillar among the traffic exchange sites, with higher Alexa ranking than others, and being said that, means that it is effective and trusted.
