Traffic exchanges (aka TE's) are online services where members of the site can view each others websites. More comonly "You view my website, and I'll view yours"
Hence the name traffic "exchange". Members exchange site views with other members.
The more members a site has - the more views each website will receive. TE's are actually a very inexpensive form of advertising and can yield humongous results when used properly.
How do I receive hits (otherwise called merits)?
First, you need to signup to Surfing With The Oldies then -
Login to your members area and click 'surf' in the left navigation menu. This will open the surfbar where you will view other members' sites. For every three sites you view, you will earn one merit to use towards your site views. If you upgrade you will earn more merits per view.
You will find bonus merits for completing all the letters in the letterhunt game. Each new word will yield more bonus merits. The game resets every day. Be sure to click "claim" or you won't earn the extra merits!
There will also be other ways to earn or win even more merits. You will be notified of these specials via email. Make sure you have whitelisted our emails.
How do I use the surfbar?
Click 'surf' in the left navigation menu. Once the surfbar has loaded you will see a timer countdown at the top. Wait until the timer has counted down and you see the word GO. You will see some images appear in the center of the top bar. Simply click the image that matches the one on the left to proceed to the next site.
