Traffic exchange programs are abundant on the internet and a good way to get exposure and clicks to your website. Traffic exchanges, also called TE, work like this. They are free to join. Once you've joined, you post a short (compelling) description and link of the site you want to promote. In order to get exposure to your site you need to earn credits. The more credits you have, the more exposure you will get. You can earn credits either by clicking on the other members' sites or you can buy your credits or upgrade your membership. This article will give you a description of some of the top traffic exchanges. TrafficSwarm. This is one of the most popular traffic exchanges on the net. The quickest and easiest way to earn credits with Trafficswarm is to set your browser's "start page" to your own personal 'Surf URL' on TrafficSwarm (there are step by step instructions on how to do this and it only takes a minute). This way, every time you open your web browser to surf the Internet, you'll earn a credit. You'll also earn 1 - 1000 credits every time you visit another member's website through your start page. TrafficSwarm has the most users and visits of any other TE, and they also have an outstanding referral program.
