Hiya All, Hoping to learn more about setting up and operating a traffic exchange website (hopefully profitably and without lawsuits). For the purpose of this post, a "traffic exchange" would be a website where people can go sign up (for free and/or buy credits) for an account or membership. Thereafter, Member A might place some HTML code on her website, which then "serves" or shows other peoples' advertisements Member A's website. In return, Member A's advertisements might then be shown on Member X's website and Member X's ad would be shown on yet another member's website. The traffic exchange website owner might be able to advertise her own ads at a higher frequency or with some advantage but essentially the traffic exchange benefits all members because they can get free targeted traffic to their websites. Rather than come to the table empty-handed, here are some traffic exchange scripts I found on g00gle: a) hxxp://w3.traffice*xchangescript.c0m/ b)hxxp://w3.hotscrip*ts.c0m/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Exchanges/Traffic_Exchange/index.html c) hxxp://w3.phptraffic*dx.c0m/ In BHW forum, there are some mentions of traffic exchanges here: a) http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...s/10941-look-here-traffic-trading-script.html b) http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/member-downloads/3519-exploiting-traffic-exchanges.html Here are some questions or areas for discussion, please, everyone: 1) Would you think that using Traffic Exchanges are viable, sustainable methods of targeted traffic generation? 2) (Especially if you are operating or have operated a traffic exchange), What might be the more efficient/effective methods of driving traffic to the site initially for the purpose of initial membership recruitment? 3) What might be a good critical mass of members to have to kick start your whole traffic exchange website, at the beginning? 4) What are important areas to pay attention to, in terms of member support and member relationship management? In a sense, we want to "teach" members to use the features and facilities over and over again, and encourage them to tell their friends and business associates. 5) What are some of the possible problems (e.g. spam, abuse, fraud) and what are some of the ways of avoiding problems and complaints (objectionable materials/offers, non-targeted offers by members who abuse the system)? 6) Would you have tips, advice or suggestions to fast track success and profits for the new owner/operator of a traffic exchange? 7) Any other thoughts, ideas, advice, suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, folks. P.S. I might be away for a week or so due to some personal reasons but I'll be sure to stay tuned and respond once I'm back. Thank you.
