Cogs & Logs Tuesday Traffic Tales

cogs & Logs News Help imgWhen I first came on line, eons ago in case you wondered, I think I was compelled to join every Traffic Exchange going. At that time, think the ceiling was approximately 1000 of them but very few worth
taking the time to join.

Nevertheless, I ended up with 125 of them in my pandora’s box and went crazy trying to keep up with them all. We had surfing partners in those days that sort of helped the time pass on those terrible 3:1 and 5:1 sites. There were not a lot of them then, thank the powers that be and even fewer now.

Today, I could take those 125 and break them down into rotators and
spread them around. There is even a site or two that will allow you
to build them all under one roof if you join what they recommend as
well.

Why don’t I?

Companies go out of business as fast as they come on line. Rotators
are only as good as the dummy that fills them up! If you go off line,
if you leave a program, if you are no longer active if, if and more
ifs,that rotator is a thorn in your side and the program owners.

Control factor is another reason.

Today’s top 10 programs are history tomorrow. Not quite but close
enough if you follow hoopla. IF you do not vote continuously for
your favorite TE. If you do not use them enough or promote them
to create traffic. I think you get the picture.

Sufficient credits to keep rotators in full motion.

That is another reason I do not use them. IF it takes 100 views to
attract the attention of 10 people and out of that ONE might join me,
then how many credits do I need to keep live pages in each rotator?

You live in a dream world if you figure 122 credits will rotate
your 15 sites five or six times daily. Your rotator and your pages
are mixed in with thousands of other sites in each program. The fact
you use a rotator does not give you special privileges for every site
within to be rotated first.

IF you can buy credits, you are in a better position than the average
traffic exchange user. Because they are not upgraded; because they do
do list building; because their relationship with their members is
somewhere between earth and mars, they have to surf and surf hard
every day just to keep some of their sites in rotation.

Traffic Co-ops the new babies online

Not so new really.Been around for a lot of years, mainly to find what
they do now for Traffic Exchange users – create exposure and bring in
new conversions.

Do they work? I have listened to one smart cookie give his results
about co-ops. It did not turn my crank and make me run to use them.
How about you?

Everything we do online is to promote our favorite programs, whether
we are the owner or an affiliate, takes time and thought to make the
results we want happen. It all comes down to a series of small step
goals you can measure
, based on the well thought out plan. That plan
will be in continuous motion as you research and test, research and
test some more.

Do you have a working plan? Got some thoughts on this post? Share
your experiences. That is one powerful way to grow.

Who Wins In Life With The Hand Dealt

Congratulations to contest winners

In poker, the best hand wins. You can bluff your way through anything until you are called.

In life, the hand dealt each player is questionable at best. And the question arises, do you have to play the hand you were dealt? If you are lucky, you will read some of the answers to that question in member blogs who attended the Sunday and Thursday night session on that exact topic. It could have been you.

SurfingWith Focus – The Credit Conundrum

Creating the right balance

Credits are the freeman’s way to purchasing a spot on the Internet. Depending on what you join and where you advertise, credits are the cash of the realm. In our instance today, we are speaking of Traffic Exchanges.

Traffic Exchanges Are Dead


Eventually, anyone coming on the net is going to be introduced to Traffic Exchanges. Then the real fun begins.  Contests reign supreme as a way to encourage surfing and traffic through the Traffic Exchanges [TEs].  Read on, test and see if TEs are dead.

While everyone who surf has the chance to win, the odds are pretty sure many times winning will evade your efforts. The credits tend to pile up if you are serious.

You want loads of credits on hand. You need them for a lot of things like ..

  •     make sure your URLs remain active
  •     convert for text and banner ads
  •     pay for start page ads
  •     reward your active surfers
  •     welcome award for new subscribers
  •     more …

The fastest way to become discouraged with a TE, is to only surf in hopes your website URL is going to make you rich. Adding both banner and text ads to your rotation, increases conversions by an easy 300% if they relate a darned good benefit for the viewer.

Being upgraded is a super way to increase your credits, be able to do all of the above and more. The cool deal is the current summer contest that will allow you to compete for the weekly top level one year upgrade, It is a $328 package when you go for all three. Check the Contest page for details.

Don’t give up!


The contest will run all summer so you have approximately 13 weeks to play for an upgrade. Winning has this wonderful feel to it. Like soft leather to the soul. It’s a  way to tell the net world you have arrived.

Surfing Schedule


A reasonable surfing schedule that includes seven outside TEs and the three in here, is a good ratio of weekly surfing. Those seven outside TEs is where you advertise 10khits3unow, clickaholics and 21stCenturySurf.

Getting Referrals


Check yesterday’s Cogs & Logs News for how to fill your referral base and you will soon start to feel like you understand TEs and how to work them to pay you an upgrade, great active subscribers and maybe even a monthly commission check.

Good luck!
Have a super prosperous Wednesday!
