One of the most inexpensive ways to get traffic to your website is through the use of traffic exchanges. A traffic exchange is where you submit your website to be seen by others. By viewing other peoples sites you receive credit that will be used to show your site to others who do the same. Although the ratio of sign ups is low, this is one way to get cheap traffic to your website or affiliate link.

Why is the ratio of people signing up relatively low? Traffic exchanges are filled with people who are only interested in people joining their business. They take little time or consideration when they click on your site. A majority of the people are only viewing your site in order to get free credits from surfing. Although this is unfortunately true, some traffic exchanges have been proven to show reasonable results. There are hundreds of different traffic exchanges on the internet. Obviously you cannot join them all, and you should not join them all. The reason is that some of them are not very good. You should focus or pick a few good traffic exchanges to promote your business.

Most traffic exchanges are free and give the option to upgrade. Some people have argued that you should not upgrade or buy credits, and instead just surf. Their reasoning goes back to the low ratio of sign ups. Although their opinion is justified, surfing for credits is very time consuming. So, should you upgrade or not? The answer is reliant on how good the traffic exchange is, and the resources you have. If the traffic exchange has a lot of people surfing it reasonable to upgrade. Secondly, the resources you have will determine the right choice. If you have time to surf for credits than you should surf for credits. If you are pressed for time and have money to spend, upgrading or buying credits is the way to go.

Regardless of whether you pay or surf for your credits, make sure to focus on a few good traffic exchanges.
