    Interesting idea for generating traffic...

    I thought this was an interesting idea to generate traffic to my site. I don't know how effective it is, but I thought I would give it a try. Essentially, you set your home page to a script. The script sends you to a "member's" site. Each time you view a member's site, you are credited views for your site. Kind of a view exchange if you will.

    I'll let you all know my success with it in a few weeks. In the mean time if you would like to take a look at it, the link is below:

    Take care,

    Brian

    Eh, I'm not so enamoured of this type of program. Are you going to look at the site that loads from the script? Not really, right? Then why would the people who view your site from the script look at it?

    There is another more popular program that does this called StartBlaze... if you do a search for it on these forums you will find many posts explaining why what they promise is impossible.

    There are many such services. I've found StartBlaze to be one of the better ones. With only a few referrals in my downline I have received about 15,000 hits from StartBlaze and I get about one subscriber to my newsletter for each 100 from StartBlaze. Not bad for completely untargetted traffic and little work.

    WTF?

    Hah! I'm famous!!!

    Guess he shoulda read a bit to see if I posted here before posting this tho

    btw Aspen and Delemitri, the difference between TrafficJumbo and startblaze etc - is I've got targeting and 'grouping' (high/low quality) in place and ready to switch on as soon as the userbase is high enough (not trying to advertise, just saying why mine is different)

    Ahh, my members are spamming sitepoint... I'm so proud
