Unlimited Free Traffic All Month For 10 Minutes Of Your Time


A huge advantage to List Surfing is that even though you can surf web pages, or read email ads, for a long time and get increased rewards and bonuses for larger volume.. you don’t have to if you don’t want to or just don’t have hours to commit.

To help those who want to get maximum exposure and results from just a little bit of time each month, we created List Surfing with NO SURF RATIO! What does this mean? Well, it means you won’t view two pages in order to earn one view of your site in return (known as a 2:1 ratio), or even view one page in order to get one view in return (1:1 ratio). You can view a minimum of just 50 pages each month in the surf area and this makes you ACTIVE for a full 30 days. While you are active your sites get unlimited rotation in our surfing area and it doesn’t cost you ANY credits at all. This is unlimited rotation of your sites for absolutely free. Just rinse and repeat every month.

Let’s put this in perspective… let’s say you are a free member in List Surfing so you would be allowed to rotate up to one site. That one site might receive 50 visitors a week. The amount of visitors depends on many factors so this may go up or down depending on how active other users are in List Surfing as well as how many other sites are rotating. That would mean 200 visitors a month.

For viewing just 50 sites you get 200 visitors in return? That is unheard of in traffic exchangesBut yes, that is what you get at List Surfing.

But, what if you upgrade in List Surfing? Then you can get 3x or even 5x the amount of traffic! Pro members can rotate 3 sites, so even if you put the same site in 3 times you will be getting roughly the same amount of traffic to each listing giving you.. according to our rough estimate above.. 600 to 1,000 visitors per month for just surfing 50 pages! You realize that is something like a 1:6 or 1:10 ratio, right?

But hold on to your seat, because it gets even wilder.

You know how I said we don’t spend any of your credits when your site is viewed in the surf area? That means while you’re surfing you are accumulating credits, but they aren’t ever being spent to show your site to others – so what do you do with those credits?! You can turn around and use those credits to send Email Ads to our list! 

Email ads are another super effective way to advertise, and a nice percentage, probably 2-3% of the people you send your email ad out to will open and visit your website. This is not only additional traffic, but traffic you can pre-sell through your email copy!

Do you see the big picture now? With List Surfing you get insane amount of value for your time surfing through free website rotation AND email ads. Plus when you read email ads you also earn text impressions, banner impressions, and more mailing credits. 

I’m not even mentioning the daily surf drawing, referral contests, and surf bonuses that are given to our members who invest more time and surf higher volume.. that’s for another post 😉

Are you pumped to use List Surfing?!?

To your success,

Darren Olander

P.S. Unfortunately, if you let your account go inactive your sites will not rotate, but you can still send email ads and everything else in your account is still functioning normal like getting referrals, commissions, banner ads, text ads, etc.  You can always make your account active again for 30 days by just surfing 50 pages, it’s that simple!

OR, if you want all the benefits of being active without actually doing anything, you can purchase Always Active and as long as you are subscribed your account will stay active.

Why a “Start Page”?

There are elements you see quite common among traffic exchanges. Beyond the obvious “surfing”, credits, timers, and banner ads, there is another feature that many leading traffic exchange offer; Start Pages.

What’s a “Start Page”? Simple. It is one of the first (typically 1st, 2nd, or 3rd) pages you see when you begin surfing at a traffic exchange. Members are offered the option to guarantee their site is seen as one of the first sites of surfers for that day or week. It’s an opportunity to get a high-level of exposure when you need it most.

New and not sure where to begin?

Concepts like traffic exchanges aren’t entirely intuitive if you’re new. We know that some new members have never used a traffic exchange before, and particularly one like ours. Like anything new there can be a learning curve.

Now, you’ll find a series of “Getting Started” steps to help walk you through the process. It isn’t sexy, and we realize that but it also isn’t as painful as you may believe. So, we’ve put together a very simple process to properly setup your account and then get active as fast as possible.

Splash Page: Graphics, Call-to-Action, Text, Layout…each can make a big difference

First, we sure hope you use splash pages in traffic exchanges – we don’t think you should ONLY use splash pages, but certainly give them a chance. These are effective ways to quickly capture your visitors’ attention. You only have a handful of seconds to get your main points across so they will take some kind of action.

Before you go out and create a splash page there are many important elements to consider, such as the following:

  1. Colors – complementing vs clashing
  2. Graphical elements
  3. Legible text/messaging
  4. Length of message
  5. Call-to-action

…to name some of those that are most important.

Feature: Bookmark the sites you want to revisit

As you see on a couple other traffic exchanges such as Sweeva where you can ‘bookmark’ a site as you surf, we thought it would be a great addition to add on ListSurfing. Too many times while surfing you may land on a website that you’d like to check out further but you may not have the time at that very moment. So, what better way than to save it for later? Now you can.

Want Quality over Quantity? Let’s look at the Statistics

There are many traffic exchanges varying in slightly different ways; timer lengths, credit bonuses, surfing ratios, etc.. How do you know which, of the many, are worth your time investment? Honestly, that’s a question we can’t really answer as you won’t always have the same results as everyone else at the same traffic exchange. But what we can tell you is how the statistics don’t lie.

One of the key factors to value (in our opinion) is how many unique surfers you have at a traffic exchange related to how many total hits are received. So how can we possibly look at the stats? Simple; Affiliate Funnel rank report. Below is a screen shot of one of the weekly reports (based on more than just votes) which are calculated every friday, automatically. This report is readily available to anyone but we’ve left out all the other traffic exchange names as that doesn’t really matter.

Affiliate Funnel Rank Stats

In this chart, ListSurfing is at the bottom of the list. Position has nothing to do with what we’re going to explain, so leave that out of the equation.

As you’ll notice, the “Surfers Votes” for ListSurfing (at 8.14) is among the highest out of the list. At least we know our members definitely love the site! What you want to pay attention to is “Hits” and “Unique Surfers”. At ListSurfing we only require you to surf 50 sites every 30 days as part of the “Active” requirement. With that it would be no surprise that our surfing hits are going to be lower than other traffic exchange where hits are higher as people surf hundreds of sites a day to earn credits in order to keep their sites being seen. And that’s exactly where value is important.

Would you rather receive multiple hits from the same surfer or mostly unique hits? We believe the latter, and here’s what we mean. As your site receives hundreds of hits on most traffic exchanges it is highly likely to be from many of the same surfers, but on ListSurfing your site hits are more likely to be from unique surfers.

Let’s do a little math:   as the report shows a 7-day period, out of the 115,539 hits to active sites in ListSurfing by 8,552 unique surfers, that means each surfer saw your site about 13-14 times on average.  So, let’s look at some of the others…

1,215,026 hits from 15,214 surfers = 79 – 80 Average Hits per Surfer

786,066 hits from 13,081 surfers = 60 – 61 Average Hits per Surfer

438,434 hits from 13,325 surfers = 32 – 33 Average Hits per Surfer

348,537 hits from 10,450 surfers = 33 – 34 Average Hits per Surfer

As you can see, ListSurfing delivers more unique hits, on Average, but at least double the above examples. Of course, for smaller TE’s that receive far less than 100k hits each week, the ratio is technically better than what ListSurfing provides, but there is also another view that getting not enough hits is also not as valuable.

We certainly don’t think just being a part of ListSurfing is a good idea. Diversification and being present in many advertising locations is certainly a smart choice, but make sure to keep ListSurfing as part of your arsenal. More unique hits means more new eyes!

Saying less is more – get better results with a shorter message

Email advertising is still a powerful way to capture the attention of prospects, leads, customers and readers. In fact, you probably check your email at least 5 days out of the week, and in many cases, more than once per day, right?

You've got email!A lot of weight has been shifted to building relationships through social networks and in hindsight less focus through blasting out email ads to lists of people. But, let’s not forget that email marketing is a vital part of the overall picture to your marketing. You can reach a following with effective messages but you have to keep in mind that people get a lot of email and thus yours may just get lost in the mix.

There’s always something else to add to a growing website whether it is a bug fix, a better solution to a specific feature, additional value-added features, or even server tweaks to better handle website performance.

A recent addition to ListSurfing is a somewhat hidden element that you may never know about unless you see a profile of a ListSurfing member while not logged-in to the website.

Custom Box is up to you – Optin, Banner, Text, Links…

Want to have control over your profile area? Well check out this sweet feature we offer at ListSurfing. Originally intended for you to build up your subscribers by using an Opt-in form, you can put text, forms, banners or images in your “Custom” box which is display in two locations: your profile page (such as at Matt Koshko’s Profile) and while members surf, at the top left corner under the member Gravatar.

As members surf and see your site, they might say “Hey, how can I stay in touch?” With this custom box you can add a form to capture opt-ins or simply have a link with text to a website if your choice. Many members have used this creatively – you may have seen some of those boxes while surfing.
