Excellent Ways To Promote Affiliate Banners

I posted recently about two traffic exchanges which are just about the best out there. However, I've recently stumbled onto similar sites which also give you cash money for doing the exact same thing!
Don't Surf for Credits Only, Get Cash At the Same Time!

The first is HitTactic: Hit Tactic Traffic Exchange
- The site is slightly slower than the rest, but since you're getting paid, you have time to wait. I usually open all my traffic exchange windows in tabs and just cycle through. I recommend getting a couple with short timers to fill space, and a couple with longer timers but better perks (like HitTactic) to ensure you're making dough!

The second is EasyHits4U: Easy Hits 4 U Traffic Exchange
- I can't say enough about this site! Great member base (65,000+), fast, great site coding, and even more cash per site surfed than HitTactic! They pay out through Paypal or E-Gold, which is a sweeping new concept where all money earned/payed is backed by a real gold standard (~just like America used to be~).

So check them out and promote your site and/or your affiliate links, affiliate banners, partner sites, contests, etc... today!

Blonde Paint Job

It's been a good while since I've posted an email, and this one is kind of dumb (pardon the pun), but I figured worth posting, as it might give someone a much needed laugh. Happy Hump Day!

  A blonde teenager, wanting to earn some extra money for the summer, decided to hire herself out as a 'handy-woman' and started canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighborhood.

She went to the front door of the first house, and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to do.

"Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint my porch,' he said, 'How much will you charge me?"

Delighted, the girl quickly responded, "How about $50?"

The man agreed and told her that the paint brushes and everything she would need was in the garage.

The man's wife, hearing the conversation said to her husband, "Does she realize that our porch goes ALL the way around the house?"

He responded, "That's a bit cynical, isn't it?"

The wife replied, "You're right. I guess I'm starting to believe all those dumb blonde jokes we've been getting by e-mail lately."

Later that day, the blonde came to the door to collect her money.

"You're finished already?" the startled husband asked.

"Yes," the blonde replied, "And I even had paint left over, so I gave it two coats."

Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50.00 and handed it to her along with a ten dollar tip.

"And by the way," the blonde added, "It's not a Porch, it's a Lexus.

Banned From Entrecard

a.k.a. sucks!

Well, yet another site is added to the suck list, as my account has been deleted from Entrecard. Graham, the admin claims I have been dropping on a site that doesn't exist, and therefore must have been breaking the TOS. Here's a copy of the message he sent to first alert me to the situation on Sunday:


It is my unfortunate business to inform you that you have been caught with your hand in the cookie jar, so to speak. You've been dropping daily on a widget that doesn't exist.

You have an ultimatum.

You can tell us how it is that you are dropping on a widget for a site that doesn't exist, and more specifically where. Most likely a widget farm of some sort, with multiple's people's widgets pulled and displayed on a single page. We'll thank you for the information and give you a bounty.

Or, we can simply remove your account for illegal activitiy and send you on your way, banning you.

Please choose the former and give us some information, otherwise we'll have no choice but to keep the integrity of our network intact.

It disgusts me that he claims he'd give me a bounty for reporting some whacked out page that enables cheating, when I took part in no such activity, yet otherwise I'll be banned. What a crock!

I sent the only explanation I could think of, for why it was happening, which apparently wasn't good enough for the monkey admins over there. Two days later, on Tuesday, I got the notice of account deletion:

Your account 'Something From Some Unfamous Body' on has been deleted. The administrator gave the following reason:

illegal drops

Please contact if you have any questions regarding this action.

So be it. I can't imagine they understand any legitimate reasons for why things happen on their servers. They are so worried about "cheating" because inflation got out of control (because their initial "plan" didn't work). They tried to stave off the inflation with a new pricing model, but only caused confusion and frustration, losing some of their major websites/users. They were able to kill 40,000+ credits with a single swoop (15,000 was from The University Kid's contest, and countless others were from Joe Tech's Slot Wins), and instead of just deleting the credits that shouldn't have been there from some server error, they deleted the entire account!

Good riddens Entrecard, R.I.P. (or not!).

P.S. If you advertised on my page, you'll probably have to message support to get your credits back because their system doesn't automatically resolve those things when sites no longer exist on their servers!!!

Happy Tuesday!

Need Some Nice Traffic?

Maybe you like Joe Tech's Ad-Slot Widget:

...but it has you wondering why you spend all day refreshing his page to try and win a text link that will be replaced within a day (for small ads) or a week (for extra large ads).

Plus, you know sites like Blogrush absolutely SUCK for any real traffic needs, and Entrecard is ok, but doesn't give you many options for bumping your traffic up quickly without a lot of investment (you have to build up credits or buy them, and the new limits really put a damper on any plans to advertise for free on a popular blog more than once a week!)

Introducing a few fantastic solutions:



There's a lot to be said about these sites, but I'll try to keep it simple for now. If you need traffic, you need to utilize these resources; they allow for site, banner, and text link promotion, and FreeTrafficLotto gives you the chance to win cash as well!

You can use the sites totally free and get great results, and "playing" for the credits is kinda fun and definitely addictive! However, if you're looking for a boosted solution, or don't have as much time to invest, you can purchase a "pro" account on either site, ridiculously cheap! With FreeTrafficLotto, you can get the benefits of pro for only $5 (the price of approximately 2000 entrecard credits - which would buy you only one day of advertising a single 125x125 on a popular site there!), and for $6.97 (introductory price only) you can get a "pro" membership on Traffic Bunnies. Something to keep in mind for those larger traffic flow needs!

Enjoy your new flood of traffic!
