I used it twice or thrice and my blog got thousands of visits in just a week but then I just left it because of the reviews which were against these type of sites. Today, it struck my mind and I thought that I should warn the bloggers, especially new bloggers that these websites are not of much use and why you shouldn’t use them.
Bounce Rate (according to Wikipedia) means “It represents the percentage of visitors who enter the site and “bounce” (leave the site) rather than continue viewing other pages within the same site.” As I have mentioned above the time is maximum 30 seconds(mostly) to visit the sites in these traffic exchange sites. So, when you will get hundreds of visits with 30 seconds maximum time, your site’s avg. time is going to decrease with the increase of your bounce rate which should be as low as possible. If you won’t avoid these sites, your bounce rate is bound to increase.
The users of these traffic exchange sites visit multiple sites in a single session. What’s the percentage that they would stop-by and get attracted by some time? In my opinion, just 5%. Why would they care about someone else’s site when they just want quick traffic to theirs’. So, that really means that almost nobody in these traffic exchange sites actually care about your site. What does this lead to? Just hundreds to fake visits.
Really folks, these kind of sites are a waste of time. Leave these sites and try to optimize your sites for search engines, write quality articles on your site and with the help of high quality traffic tool, like Babylon Traffic, you won’t only get more visits than these traffic exchange sites, but on the top, you will get original visits.
