Here’s a newsflash, the ‘experts’ at the Warrior Forum are telling everyone that traffic exchanges don’t work…Wow, is it 2006 all over again?
Let me rewind my rant and explain. Jared Silver decided to pose the question this weekend in the Warrior Forum (the big bad internet marketing forum) if traffic exchanges work…The post was meant to stir things up and highlight some of the better aspects of the business (a.k.a. you, the members of these programs and the lifeblood of the communities).
Well, how did it go? We were the most popular thread this weekend in the forum and well, let’s just say Jon Olson didn’t win over any fans from the thread. Why was I defensive? Because this is the same argument I’ve been having for over a decade about traffic exchanges.
Let’s put it this way…SEO people HATE the thought of traffic exchanges because their numbers may not be up to par with their SEO game plan. I’ve had my issues with SEO ‘claims’ for years but I have changed my way of thinking these past few months. I have woken up to the fact that there are MANY ways to generate traffic, neither is better than the other.
So when people call my life’s work ‘junk’ and ‘a complete waste of time’…Sorry, Papa Jon comes out to defend his businesses. But I should have known better…LOL Anyways…
Traffic exchanges DO work and work better than they ever have. Combined with the social surfing element, which many including myself, think is the biggest improvement this industry has seen in a decade, the numbers are there. The members keep surfing, the members keep joining, the members keep purchasing and the results continue to speak for themselves.
All in all, there was great people in the Warrior Forum this weekend like John Guanzon and others who made strong points for the traffic exchanges (without the Jon Olson-esque emotions lol) and I think it was a bright spotlight pointed again, at our industry.
Fun times but I know my place and where I do my best work. I will stick around the communities built for the traffic exchange industry! It’s a great business to be in and after 13 years, it’s only getting better…
P.S. Speaking of communities, remember T3 is tonight! At 7pm Eastern. It should be a good one!
