In conjunction with the list of sites provide from here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...t-list-social-exchange-sites.html#post4161787 I figure I'll list some thoughts of on it and what you can benefit from each type of these social exchange sites First, I'd like to explain that each site has unique benefits for specific purposes, meaning one exchange site can provide better results for fb likes, another for twitter followers, one that doesn't do crap, and so on. I haven't tried most of them but eventually I'll probably come back around this thread and update it when I do. For the time being, I have provided my review on each one I've experienced so far. Also please keep in mind that these opinions I provide may not be beneficial towards all and might be slightly biased for which purpose I used it for. This review I make on this thread is just to give you guys some ideas on where to apply the best results based on my experience. Code: [B]http://www.youlikehits.com/[/B] Lot's of users on here, it's great for just about overall anything to be honest. I've experimented with G circles, G+, FB Likes, Twitter, Digg, SU. If you're just starting out with these type of sites, YLH is your best bet. Pros: Can get extremely good results with conversion on your likes/followers with minimal unlikes. A huge list of facebook pages to accumulate points and use them towards your own sites. Also has daily 50points which I always try to be on the dot lol. Another great thing is, you can cap your limit so that you don't come back to the site the next day to realize all your points were depleted. Third good thing is, you can geo target where the likes come from. Cons: It can get slow, so sometimes when you get that juicy max point to earn, it actually times out because you only have about 90sec. Also, I notice that it's a little deceiving sometimes when you do see a high points earner and it actually doesn't like it. However, my theory on this might be that that site/page owner ran out of points and it was still displaying. Who knows. Other thoughts: This site is mainly great for the facebook likes, I'd recommend using it mainly for the fb likes. The reason why I say this is because of how the points fluctuate and the value of points you earn. It's more valuable to use the points you earned towards the facebook likes rather than wasting it on boosting your website traffic or something. Code: [B]http://www.addmefast.com/[/B] Another good one to check out. You can accumulate a good amount of points as a member pretty quickly and be able to disperse it with good return value. Also has a good amount of users on here which helps for just about anything they offer for the exchanges. This site also provides a daily bonus to and is higher than most of the exchange sites I've seen, which is 100 points. Pros: Lots of points earned fast! For new users you should be able to notice right away that a lot of points are pretty up there to get you guys started towards your pages. They have a web surfer to accumulate points, so you can just do that while liking other stuff they offer (fb, twitter, yt) Track how many people have liked your pages or followed you and also has a pause button, if you want to put one of your pages on hold. You can add as many links, twitter/fb accounts to boost your likes. Cons: It's hard to determine how much your points could fluctuate since there is no cap/max limit system. One day you could have 5000 points and then next, you could possibly lose almost everything. It's also difficult because if you do post up a lot of links, even at the minimum 2cpc, if you multiply that by let's say 20, in 24hrs who knows how many or how fast it depletes. Other thoughts: This site is used just about for everything, and noticed the best results with G+ and twitter followers. The fb likes not so much, even though the stats show it, the actual likes on the fb pages don't....The conversion for G+/Twitter followers produced really good results. Depending on how much your willing to set your cpc (points) will probably determine how fast you will earn likes/followers as well. Code: [B] http://***********.com/[/B] The first time I signed up to this site, I was like cool, I just earned points so easily, can't wait to see results. Well, not much to say but I probably get some likes and followers here and there. Offers YT, YT Channels, FB, Twitter, G+, Website boost, Digg. Pros: Most of the points to earn are pretty high, so you're able to accumulate points quickly. They have a history section where you can see stats on what was done for how many points and when. The site seemed to have been revised to strengthen unlikes and also has a delay, meaning if you try to like to fast it'll prevent you from earning. Cons: I don't think it has many users, I've had the account for about 5 months and I go on it maybe once or twice a week (My points haven't depleted with all of them being at max points). They have this points set up where it's individual per like/follower type. At first, it confused me because I thought I lost 1/2 within 2 min. To clarify, when you first log in, your points will say Twitter credits, click another tab, say FB, you will see the credits now say Facebook Credits: XXX. I don't think this is necessarily bad, just was confusing for a little while. On the other hand, you can't combine points you earned from the other areas and use it (from what it looks like) Other thoughts: This site seems to have a lot of user base, but I just don't think it's converting very well. If anything, the twitter is probably producing the best results based on my history stats. So if you want to have extra resources to gain more followers, you can use this for gaining extra boost for twitter followers. Personally, I haven't given up hope with this one compared to others so I still have faith with this one Code: [B]http://claimfans.com[/B] This is probably another one of my favorites. Why you ask? They have retweets that produces results! A good selection of choices, your usual fb/yt/twitter, and also G+,SU, Digg, Surf, LinkedIN! I've never tried the linkedin yet but I may have tested it once and it did produce results. Pros: Again, the retweets. Personally, I think retweets are really effective versus the G+ and facebook likes and I value the points more towards the retweets. This site also has a daily bonus of 50 points and you can accumulate some good points with the surf feature. They have good high points on their fb area which can grow your points really quickly. The G+ also noticed producing a fair amount of results. You can set your limit on points for the links you provide so you don't have to cry about losing your points the next day. Cons: Seems a little inflated on points, if you're asking me why I complain about this? It's mainly on the fb part. Majority of the fb are at the max earning level which means if you were to offer your fb to earn likes for your page, it could take a while. I think I've put it at the max with around 800 points and for that to deplete it takes about 2-3 weeks. From that, I notice it's not converting as great value towards the other features of the site. Other thoughts: I would definitely use this site for the retweet. Even for the G+, although there are poorer conversion with G+ and FB, you accumulate so much points, you might as well just spread them out to the other likes/follow features. I'd give this site a try, as it's again one of my favorites. Code: [B]http://socialmediaexplode.com aka socialmediacoins (I think) aka exchange something I don't even remember... [/B] Anyway, this site is another good one. LOTS of ways to earn points, and the conversion ratio to points is good. The admin/site owner/moderator are usually around to help you out if you have those noobie questions. This site has a bigger point level threshold from 2 - 50. Probably one of the only few ones that do this so you can maximize your exposure. Pros: You can earn points in a lot of different ways, ranging from the usual fb, doing surveys, to gambling your coins to a slot spin for a chance to earn more (this feature might be gone soon) I've noticed some good results, especially with G+ and Retweets. Yes, another site that offers retweets and shows good results! (If you read my previous review, you'll know by now I like the retweets). For the fb, I have seen a fair amount of likes being received so I think it's worth a try, depends on how you set your coins for this one. Cons: Okay, I'm sure they will eventually fix this, but some of the fb likes that show on there continue to stay on there when they can't be liked or it's some kind of error. It's also deceiving sometimes because whoever creates those pages, puts the title "like me" or "facebook" which shows 4-5 times and I end up going to the same pages. The way the fb likes is set up is when you click to like, it will pop-up to take you to the page, you like and then go back to the site to confirm. It sucks we know, but hey for those hard earners, they gots to do something to prevent constant unlikers/bots right? Others thoughts: Once you post your page/link to gain likes/followers, it can't be removed. Make sure it's your own site or you're the site owner at least, as this is clearly stated. The points system is also set to automatically recurr so you have to monitor and be cautious not to end up losing a good chunk of points. I've noticed really good results with G+ and retweets, sometimes too good! The FB, again, I think this will product good results depending on what you set your point levels at. Ok I've tried a few others but I don't have much experience or have had little success, so maybe someone will add some input to it: Code: [B]http://swapes.com[/B] Honestly, I don't even know why I continue to use this one, maybe I have that 1% hope it'll produce good conversion, but I'd put 150points at 3 clicks (max is 5), done this about 3-4 times already and check one of my links, I see 1 person +1'd. It's the same with FB, and it also takes a while for my points to actually get used up. They have stats but it's really inaccurate from all the people unliking or whatever. Site owner needs to enforce this... Code: [B]http://www.linkdip.com[/B]/ Signed up, site lagged but still put in effort to play around with it. Just wasn't feeling it. I think they have like this twist that you can encourage actual users who sign up to exchange/boost each other. Concept is good, but I think the site lagging was what really killed it for me. Maybe I'll come back one day when I hear it's been sped up. Code: [B]http://likesbay.com[/B] Okay, I signed up read the instructions on how I'm supposed to do it, did it for couple days straight and nothing happened. Unless, I'm totally missing something, that kind of pissed me off and didn't make me look twice. If someone tells me that this site is really good and I'm convinced to go back to testing out the fb like again, I'll try it again and post my thoughts on it. I heard it has pinterest followers now, so this already might be worthwhile for me to check out. Conclusion: I use these sites for my personal use, because I'm not really trying to make a business out of earning the points. I use it mainly to just gain exposure to my existing sites/pages/etc. Some tips I can offer; if you guys are noobies to these exchange sites, watch your point value. Think of it kind of like stocks, sometimes you'll notice lots of points being offered higher, while other days it's lower. You'll also notice that the more you like, the quicker the points are becoming in smaller value. I tested each site and did some trial/error, felt which would be more of a better return for the value, when I earn the points, and see which of my links/pages would be beneficial for it. Also, if you're wondering about let's say for traffic boosting from these sites, I've experimented them as well. Pros: It can jump your stats, analytics, awstats, alexa, whatever. Does it really do anything? Probably not, but can have bragging rights for whoever wants to see some numbers. Cons: You'll see where the traffic actually came from.......also I'm not sure if this can be detrimental for cpa/cpc/adsense, etc. I wouldn't risk it. I wanted to write this review out on my 100th post, but I forgot and realized I just missed it...anyway, I hope that you guys who are new with doing this find my thread useful and I hope that the time I spent writing this thread actually was useful. I will try and update any new sites I try out. Oh, also if you guys have other sites to highly recommend etc, feel free to post it!
