What is Traffic Swirl?
Cost: Free to join
Traffic Swirl is your usual traffic exchange type of website where you surf on other people’s websites in order to get people to surf your website. There are other tasks that you can do that will enable you to get more traffic to your website.
We all know how hard it can be to get traffic to your website and it really does not matter what method you use, you will either have to pay or work yourself silly to get a decent amount of traffic. The hard fact is that without traffic you will never succeed with online marketing.
An in depth review about Traffic Swirl
The currency that you work with inside this website is called tokens. With tokens you can buy credits, get banner impressions or money. With tokens you can just about do anything and works like money in the real world.
You can either buy them or earn them by viewing token ads. You can only buy tokens in packages ranging from 2000 up to 110 000. The price will start at $5 for 2000 tokens and $200 for 110 000 tokens. The larger the package you buy, the less you pay per token.
You can also earn tokens buy viewing token ads. You will get a range from 1 up to 5 tokens depending on the ad that you view and sometimes you will earn more tokens by choosing an ad that has a longer ad length, but it is not always the case.
There are only 2 ways to get credits. You can either surf the websites from other members or you can buy them using tokens. You can exchange from 1-5 credits for one website visit depending on the length of the visit. The longer the visit, the more credits you need to exchange.
This can be bought with tokens and will enable you to earn more credits for each website that you surf or it will decrease the time you need to spend on the website in order to get a credit.
Earn money or prizes
This is where the treasure chests come into play. There are different types of chests that can either give you a gift card or money. Each one will cost you tokens and you can also win a chest by participating in competitions.
How to get traffic with Traffic Swirl?
You can either use your credits to get direct website visits or tokens to use other methods such as banner advertising, chat text ads or PTS ads. For each one you need to focus on different data metrics in order to be successful.
You will get 10% commission for everything that your referrals earn or buy. You will also get tools such as banners that you can put on your website or email scripts that you can use to send to your leads. Personally I think that the referral program is the best way to make money with these types of sites.
Is Traffic Swirl the real deal?
I am not a big fan of traffic exchange websites and the reason for saying this is in the word “exchange”. Before you can think about driving traffic to your website, you need to take your target market into consideration and this is where Traffic Swirl is lacking.
Each visitor that lands on your website only has the intention of clicking on ads in order to get more traffic to their websites. The traffic that you get is not “buyers” traffic because it is not the agenda of the people that are on your blog.
Here and there you might make a sale especially if you position yourself correctly. The only target audience that will hang out on Traffic Swirl are people that want to get more traffic to their website and if you have something that you can help them with, you might just have an opportunity.
Other than that I think Traffic Swirl is pretty useless.
The truth about getting traffic
Getting traffic is not easy and it takes a lot of time to generate, but if you do it right, you can have a constant flow of traffic to your website. There are 2 ways to get traffic to your website or blog:
1. Get traffic for free
This is one of the most popular ways to get traffic, but it also requires the most work and time to achieve. Even with Traffic Swirl you need to spend your time looking at other people’s websites in order to get them to look at yours. The best way that I know of is to write articles on a blog and let them rank on search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo.
The awesome thing about this method is that once you have published your article online, you never have to do the work over to get the same amount of traffic again. Once your articles have ranked on the first page of Google, you can focus on more writing more.
With Traffic Swirl you need to work over and over for the same amount of traffic and then it is not even buyer traffic.
2. Pay for traffic
With paid traffic, you can buy your way into getting exposure for your website and get results in just a couple of minutes. Traffic Swirl also has this model where you can buy token from them, but it does not change the fact that the traffic are not any good.
What should you do now?
As you can see, getting traffic will either cost you money or time and in some cases it will cost you both and there is nothing that you can do to surpass this. The free methods can also cost you money if you hire someone to write articles for you.
I really hate working for something that will only give me results that are temporary. My advice to you is to build your own traffic generating machine in the form of a website or a blog that will earn you a passive income. Here is the business model that I personally use:
- Choose a niche. Choosing a niche is very simple and fun and the great thing is that there are over a million niches that you can choose from.
- Build a website. This is actually the easy part and can be done in less than 30 seconds.
- Get traffic to your website. This is where most people struggle and the method that I use is to write content on my website and getting it ranked on Google. Once your article has ranked, it will start to make money for you and you can focus your efforts on creating more of them.
- Make money. This is where an affiliate program comes into place and you can make money by selling other people’s products online.
There you have it folks. It is not as hard as you think and at this moment I am making a passive income from websites such as this one. To get access to the training that helped me to build these profit pulling websites, you can take a look at my Wealthy Affiliate review.
