Getting Started

I have looked at some sites where you can surf through other peoples pages in exchange for credits which you can use to have people surf through yours. I'm looking for opinions

Waste of time – there are no shortcuts to building an authority site. Just crack on and write

I try not to spend too much time on them. I definitely don't put my blog on there for people to view because it affects your bounce rate, and you don't want to do that. So I just use it for landing/squeeze pages. Sometime's I have people join from there but only like a handful. I'm slowly starting to move away from them, as it's not really worth the effort if only a handful of people join.

If you want, you could give your autoresponder landing page a try, and see how it goes. You may have a different experience, so I'd say try it out for a little while.

Waste of time my man...

With my limited knowledge, my understanding is that the quality of links that come from these sites are very poor. Moreover, because people generally do not stop for more that 10 seconds on your website, it sharply increases your bounce rate, which unfortunately may hurt your Google ranking

Good point, chuka. It does seem like it sucks up way more time than it generates traffic and even that traffic is bad. I was thinking maybe of posting an autoresponder landing page or something not directly related to the site itself, but even at that, I think these do seem wasteful. Just wanted to see what others in the community thought.

Thanks
