    What does everyone think about traffic exchange sites?

    I know its pretty much fake traffic but apart from making your alexa rank drop are there any other bennifits for them? or can they actually have a negative affect on your rankings?

    As far as I know it can increase your alexa rank.

    If you mean for google ranking - bad. Sending fake traffic to your site won't increase you rankings, that's obvious.

    Ok so let me rephrase, what are the advantages of doing it?

    The only think i can think of is alexa. Does alexa have any influence on google rankings or credibility to google?

    Your Alexa rank will increase, but I would expect it to have a negative impact on your rankings. With an average 8 seconds spent on site and 100% bounce rate, it will do you more harm than good. There are other ways to increase your Alexa rank (if that is what you are aiming to do) without screwing yourself over. You can visit your site yourself through proxies and have the alexa toolbar installed, that way you will increase your Alexa rank but you can make sure your bounce rate and time spent on site doesn't suffer because you will be the one visiting the site.

    If visitors are leaving your site quickly, you might notice your rankings slipping. I won't recommend it unless those visitors are staying on your site for an extended period of time.

    It is bad for your site because your site will not appear in Google Search engine and google ban your site..

    And why it will not appear in Google Search engine... Just because some one using traffic exchange it will disappear from search engine?

    LOL stop giving advice if you don't know what you are talking...

    Advantage - Alexa improvement
    Disadvantage - very high bounce rate which will lower your credibility in search engines and your ranking will go down.

    Now OP you can decide what you want more... If you are not targeting SEO ranking and got other traffic sources then you might try traffic exchange...

    It creates perception that your site is famous one and lots of people visiting it... I am talking about normal users not Imers...
