Member's FAQ

Facts and Terms of Service:

What is a traffic exchange?

A Traffic Exchange or TE as they are known, is an advertising platform where members of the site can view each others websites. Otherwise, you could say that it means "You show me your website, and I'll show you mine". Therefore you are exchanging traffic. Members exchange site views with other members. Traffic Exchanges can actually be a very inexpensive form of advertising and can yield huge results when used properly.

How Do I Receive Hits?

The first step is to sign up to TE Search so that you can then:
Login to your members area and click 'surf' in the top navigation menu. This will open the surfbar where you will view other members' sites. You will earn credits or partial credits for every site you view. If you upgrade you will get more credits per view. You can earn bonus credits from surfing games and prize pages. Keep your eyes peeled on the sites in rotation to claim these surfing bonuses.

How do I use the surfbar?

Click "Surf" in the top navigation menu. Once the surfbar has loaded you will see a timer countdown at the top. Wait until the timer has counted down. You will see some images appear. Simply click the image that matches the one on the left to proceed to the next site.

How can I make money with TE Search?

You can earn income from TE Search by using your affiliate url and promoting our site. When any of your first level referrals make an advertising purchase, you will make affiliate income.
