One of the main concerns people have about autosurfs is whether they’re worth their time. Certainly, if you have to “babysit” your browser and restart things manually every few hours, it becomes a chore, and low earnings when you’re just starting out don’t help you stay motivated, either. But the main benefit of autosurfing is that it can be completely passive and work even when you’re away from the computer. That’s why you should spend some time automating the whole thing. Then you can sit back and relax, and let automatic traffic exchanges do the work for you.
I have already described a way to launch “no-login” surfbars all at once by setting them as Firefox home page in the Surfing Tips section. Now I’m going to show you one of the ways to set up automatic restarting for your browser, so your PC can run autosurfs for weeks or months with no supervision whatsoever.
Many people new to autosurfs join a few sites, surf them for a while, and then leave because they don’t know how to actually turn their traffic into money. Manual TEs also have a similar problem, but at least there’s numerous guides and advice available online about monetizing traffic from those (e.g. “use your credits to build a list”). With this in mind, I wrote the following post on the top 5 ways to make money by autosurfing.
Please note that only legitimate automatic traffic exchanges are listed here. So-called “investment autosurfs” are nothing more but ponzi schemes, and should be avoided. In addition, please remember not to use autosurfs with any ad networks like AdSense – build a basic splash page instead.
You’ve probably heard people saying that autosurfs don’t work, that the traffic they send is useless, and so on. I’m going to try and convince you otherwise with this post, and I have some stats to back my words up.
I’ve run StatCounter on this page (which I promote heavily in autosurf exchanges) for a week. Here are my hit statistics:
According to StatCounter, the page in question has received 415,518 views, 283,682 (or 68.27%) of which were unique visitors. Now, StatCounter is pretty nifty as it not only counts visits, but tracks exit links (or clickouts) as well. This allows you to see which links are getting clicked the most, and calculate the overall CTR of your page if you wish. Except, since autosurfs don’t work, I won’t be getting any clickouts… Right?
Today I’ve added yet another autosurf to my ever-growing list of automatic traffic exchanges. This one deserves a special mention for numerous reasons. First of all, it’s a Russian site, so you’ll need some knowledge in the language (or just use Google Translate, it’s the 21st century after all). Getting traffic from all over the world and getting more unique IPs visiting your sites can be a very good thing, depending on what you promote. So don’t be afraid to use Russian, German, Spanish, etc. traffic exchanges, as you’ll be reaching a wider audience.
WebSurf offers quite a lot of advanced features, including custom timers (from 30 to 300 seconds), geotargeting (not all countries are available, only the most popular ones), and the option to show your site to 24-hour unique IPs only. But perhaps the most coveted feature is the custom HTTP referer option that WebSurf.ru has. Using this option is free (as in, you don’t have to upgrade) and you can actually add more than 1 referer site and WebSurf will cycle between them randomly. You can also hide referer altogether for “direct traffic”.
Surfing WebSurf.ru is a bit different than your usual autosurf in that it requires you to install a dedicated application, which is available in Russian and English languages. This allows the members to promote a much wider variety of sites which would normally break your usual surfbars. The software itself is very straightforward: just launch it, enter your email and password, login, and it will start rotating websites automatically. It is completely silent, doesn’t hang, and boasts some security features. Still, I run it in a sandbox (using Sandboxie) for additional security, and I suggest you do the same. Don’t forget to use an antivirus, either.
eBesucher has long been one of my favorite autosurfs. It offers a quality traffic exchange system, banner advertising, email advertising (completely optional so you won’t get spammed), and even geotargeting. The site is based in German, but is translated into English and Russian as well. It’s rare for an autosurf to be so professional, but it’s a welcome thing for sure.
A new addition to eBesucher will surely delight those who only care about the money and not traffic. It is now possible to convert promotional credits (both autosurf and email ones) into cash. As you might have expected, the exchange rate isn’t all that great: you’ll need a massive, active downline to get significant earnings. Still, it’s more than most autosurfs online offer.
Make no mistake: eBesucher isn’t one of those scam “investment autosurfs”. It is a legit automatic traffic exchange – now with an option to convert credits into money directly.
