Many of our new GDI recruits have little experience of driving traffic to your new GDI site or to your GDI promotional URLS. One of the simplest ways to do this is to join several good traffic exchanges! We have spent some time on this to try and help you get on the road! Here is our view of what you should do to promote your site with the traffic exchanges. No prior experience is needed.
Join traffic exchanges to put traffic on your site:-
So just exactly what is a traffic exchange? Ok here is how it works - you have an internet browser right? This is what you use to look at other websites. Your browser which is most likely Internet Explorer or Firefox or Opera has to start somewhere on some page. A traffic exchange swaps visitors to your site for you looking at someone else in the exchanges' site. So we need to set our homepage so we can look at the other guy's site and in return the exchange will send a visitor to your site. Every visitor is a potential customer. We suggest belonging to five exchanges in order to spread your exposure. When you have joined, put the start pages for each exchange in a rotator and then set the rotator page as your home page. This way every time you start, you will get a credit and you will have driven one more visitor to your site. The rotator we use is at FreeRotator.com.
If you would like to get the full benefit of the traffic exchanges, download FireFox from Mozilla. It's free and more importantly it's a tabbed browser which means you can have multiple surfer windows open. Join all five exchanges below - or at the very least the free ones. Install the Instant Buzz tool bar for Fire Fox and then go do the tutorial at Get Yours Free. Set your Firefox browser up exactly as described in the tutorial and you can rack up surf credits with great efficiency.
If you have the very latest version of Firefox, simply go to each one of the traffic exchange start pages and bookmark them all in one seperate new folder. When you next want to surf for credits, go to that bookmark folder and click open in tabs and away you go! NB! if you are not a member of Instant Buzz, please make sure you read our Instant Buzz Page BEFORE you join. This is important! Now please sign up for the exchanges below.
If you are having trouble setting up your traffic exchanges, please get our FREE GDI Super Email Course which has all the instructions on a blow by blow basis in lessons 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Remember paid traffic exchanges are for serious players and tend to be junk free. For the full story on how to optimize your exchange traffic download StartXchange's traffic exchange how to's entitled "The Traffic Exchange Manual by StartXchange"! Get it for free here!
One last tip - DO NOT join a bazillion traffic exchanges. You cannot possibly surf them. Join 20 to 30 really good ones and you will get the maximum benefit!
We use all the following traffic exchanges:-

- Traffic Splash - Traffic Splash is one of my all time favorites. This popular exchange is really well organized and managed by Paul Kinder.

We give this exchange a top rating and it is definitely worth joining.

- TrafficG - Extremely well run Traffic Exchange which costs nothing to join. They have several cool options and offer a banner exchange all in one package. Their start page is not that pretty but the system is great and reliable.
- WebBizInsider - Webbizinsider is a properly organized and managed Traffic Exchange which also costs nothing to join. They have two levels of participation and offer an excellent banner exchange all in one package. Matthew Graves runs a tight aggressive ship with an agressive marketing edge and a built in traffic generation matrix. We truly rate this exchange and it definitely worth joining.
- Top Surfer - Top Surfer is a really neat traffic exchange. You can use their free version but their wholesale version at $10 is such a clever idea that it is hard to bypass. Top Surfer allows you to upgrade to wholesale for just $10 a month. This is not subscription based and you have to upgrade manually each month so you are not locked in. The trick is the $10 goes to your upline not Top Surfer. So if you refer just one person you recover $10. If you refer 2 people you pay for your GDI site as well. They also have a great downline builder which allows you to promote any 10 urls of your choice. Read about Top Surfer and join the program here.
- Funny Farm - Another extremely well run Traffic Exchange which costs nothing to join. They have two levels of participation and offer a banner exchange all in one package. Their surf pages are brightened with a humor page every now and then to lighten your day. We enjoy this exchange and it definitely brings us hits.
- 123Clicks - Is not free. It costs about $20 to join. This is a one off one time fee. This exchange is extremely efficient and the conversion ratio rocks. The reason for their being a high conversion rate is the joining fee. Only serious surfers join and the joining fee tends to keep the riff raff out. This is a no brainer. their start page is for me the most aesthetically pleasing so if you are going to choose a traffic exchange as a start page 123 Clicks is the best looking. If you belong to other exchanges 123clicks has a very nice select your exchange surfing facility where you can surf the exchange of your choice all from one control panel. Offers some very high conversion upgrade options. 123clicks also offers an autoresponder to sweeten the deal. If you are serious about traffic exchanges pay the $20 and join 123Clicks!
- 10KHit4UNow - Rob Gehring's traffic-exchange. This exchange is very powerful and produces an excellent hit ratio. It also costs nothing to join. Make sure you fill in all your IDs in the downline builder. Rob offers a pro upgrade which is well worth the spend. Rob promotes his exchange aggressively and the downline builder helps build your whole online enterprise.
- LinkCrews - Link Crews is a hybrid of Traffic Swarm and the more traditional manual exchange. This highly efficient exchange uses and unusual twist to place you in a "crew" where hard work achieves a significant reward. This is a very clever model and we recommend a membership.
