I want you to go read an article by an internet marketer I've been following for some time - Spencer Haws. It's about some of the events that took place over the past few days at PubCon in Las Vegas.

So here's the article:

Matt Cutts vs. Jason Calacanis ...

Spencer does a great job of recapping the highlights of the conference, and the thought-provoking debate between Matt (Google executive) and Jason (prominent entrepreneur).

The question that interested me the most was ...

Is Google A Bad Partner?

After reading the article and listening to both sides of the story, what do you think? What's your opinion?

A while back I wrote a blog post posing the question of whether it’s worth your time to advertise on traffic exchanges.

And, as you’ll read in the post, my ultimate conclusion was that traffic exchanges are in fact *not* a good place to advertise.

However . . .

Since that post, I’ve had a fair number of people write me strongly disagreeing with my analysis.

I like to consider myself a reasonable person, willing to hear (most) anybody out and consider their side of the story based on the evidence they offer. That is, after all, what I spent over $100,000 and 3 years of my life learning in law school (ugh).

Are Traffic Exchanges Good Places to Advertise?

So I’m sure you’re wondering whether I’ve changed my position on traffic exchanges after listening to the other side of the argument. And the answer is . . .


For all the same reasons I talked about in my original post.

However . . .

~IF~ (and yes, that is a big IF) you are going to ignore my advice and continue to advertise on traffic exchanges as one of your primary, or – heaven forbid – your only method of advertising, then there’s only 1 strategy that’s worth your while . . .


Traffic Exchange Profits is two things – an educational website about traffic exchanges in general, and a system of how to actually make money with them.

I’ve gone through all their trainings, reports, and strategies, and I must say, kudos to Mr. Scott Douglas. It’s simple, straight-forward, and logical.

And yes, I even signed up for an account there to get insider access – I’ve spent a fair amount of time back there, actually. Not bad at all.

Traffic Exchange Profits

Before you get ahead of yourself, there are a couple important things to note . . .

The reason Scott Douglas’s system makes sense and actually works has very little to do with the traffic exchange method of advertising.

In fact, you could take the same basic strategy and apply it to safelists & viral list builders (and probably a host of other advertising methods).

It works simply because it sets you up to leverage the work of others.

And if you take a close look at Scott’s model, the place you make your money isn’t necessarily in the traffic exchanges themselves.

It’s in the affiliate commissions you make by referring others into the traffic exchanges and encouraging them to upgrade their accounts to paid memberships.

Why Not Traffic Exchanges?

Sure, it’d be nice to have 1,000,000+ credits to use at various safelists so you could blast whatever flavor-of-the-month ad you’re promoting. But like I said originally, you still have to think long & hard about the type of pond you’re fishing in.

If you want to find high-quality leads willing to invest high amounts of money into your business . . . well . . . the chances of you finding them hanging out in traffic exchanges are probably about as good as finding a four-leaf clover.

So … How about now? Do you agree? Disagree? What have your experiences been? Leave a note in the comments below to join (or kick off) the discussion.

ViralURL ReviewSo you have finally stepped into the world of making money online and want to know if ViralURL is for you.

You too, like the others, have decided to start with the affiliate programs. Also, you must have heard that it’s not a big deal to make good money with affiliate marketing, provided you choose the right programs and do some strategic planning while promoting your affiliate products.

So far so good.

Whether you are promoting other people’s products or promoting your own products – that doesn’t matter when you’re first starting out because, after all, it is nothing but your own business and your own means to earn good money.

So whichever may be the case for you, I am sure you would not want to leave money on the table and invite others to steal your share of profit.

ViralURL Helps You Protect Your Commissions

Even though the industry of affiliate marketing is pretty competitive, if you take a few simple cautious and are strategic in your marketing techniques, then it could be very profitable for you.

Take a close look at the industry. You will see that not every one who gets into affiliate marketing is successful. People who are doing well leave no room for failure and take all security measures, understanding their importance.

Yes! Security, believe it or not, is one of the key factors in affiliate marketing!

If you do not adopt proper security measures, your business is exposing itself to unnecessary risks. One of the most important ways to restore security is to protect your affiliate links. Do not take them for granted. Even a small bit of carelessness on your part with regard to affiliate links may end up costing you a lot of money.

Did you know that the long complicated links you send to your prospective customers not only look convoluted but they also can create a lot of problems for you?

If you send that kind of an affiliate link to your customers, the smart ones will figure out that you’re promoting someone else’s product. Oftentimes, just like lobsters trying to prevent each other from escaping the boiling water, they would rather visit the parent company’s site instead of giving you the satisfaction of making money.

How do they do that? Simple – by manually typing in the website address into their browser and stripping off your affiliate ID.

Also, if your link does not function, then your customers have to type a really long URL into the browser, which definitely is a downer.

Or … you could be a victim of even a worse situation. What if some devious Internet pirates steal your affiliate links and replace them with theirs? If they do that, then you get no commission at all.

Not good.

Did I scare you off with all of those possibilities?

Well, that certainly wasn’t my intention. I just wanted to open your eyes and state facts that actually happen in the real world of Internet marketing.

It’s happened with me, too … that is, until I came across ViralURL, which brought an absolute revolution to my online ventures.

So, if you are not getting the desired results out of your affiliate marketing, don’t lose hope. There’s definitely a remedy to this problem and that is ViralURL.

Do I hear you asking, “What is it and how can it help in preventing any bad situations for an affiliate marketer like myself?”

Be patient and read on (if you love your business).

What is ViralURL?

ViralURL is a link shortener & cloaker that protects you in the truest sense. There may be many unethical people lurking around bad neighborhoods of the Internet who might play with your affiliate links by cutting them off or replacing them with their own, etc.

In order to avoid such a ripoff, ViralURL gives you full protection and sees to it that your affiliate links never get exposed to others.

So save yourself from getting ripped off. Get all the commissions delivered to your account that you rightfully deserve.
