What is a traffic exchange?
Traffic exchanges (aka TE's) are online services where members of the site can view each others websites. More commonly - "You view my website, and I'll view yours".
Hence the name traffic "exchange". Members exchange site views with other members.
TE's are actually a very inexpensive form of advertising and can yield humongous results when used properly.
How Do I Receive Hits?
First, you need to signup to TE Marathon then -
Login to your members area and click 'surf' in the left navigation menu. This will open the surfbar where you will view other members' sites. You will earn traffic credits or partial traffic credits for every site you view. If you upgrade you will get more traffic credits per view.
Watch out for other ways to earn extra traffic credits.
How do I use the surfbar?
Click "Surf" in the left navigation menu. Once the surfbar has loaded you will see a timer countdown at the top. Wait until the timer has counted down. You will see some images appear. Simply click the image that matches the one on the left to proceed to the next site.
