In the part 1 of this article, Part 1: Traffic Exchange vs. Autosurf, we defined and differentiated traffic exchange and autosurf. In this second installment, we will discuss autosurfing in more detail including the benefits.
Paid Autosurf programs pay members a fee for surfing websites in their exchange. Their hope is that as you surf, you will be interested in their client’s offers and make a purchase, or at least let them capture your e-mail address so they can try to up-sell you later. Also, as the name “Autosurf” would indicate, you do not have to view each website as they rotate. You could click on the surf button and walk away for 5 minutes until the autosurf session is complete.
The benefits of these services depend on what your main objective is. If you want to advertise and market your website and increase website traffic, you are much better off joining a free Traffic Exchange Site (TES). If you want to earn money each day and could care less about advertising anything, you would be better of joining a Paid Autosurf program. Free Traffic Exchange Sites require members to view each and every website they visit and require them to manually click after viewing each one. These manual TES’s have a captive audience. For free members to get their websites shown in rotation for other members to see, they must surf the exchange, one website at a time. This is one of the best ways to increase website traffic for free.
