    TrafficSwarm, good or bad?
    Has anyone heard anything bad about TrafficSwarm. I know its not necessarily the most focused traffic coming into your site, but it's traffic nonetheless.

    Thanks in advance.

    Do a search. It's been discussed here before, and the traffic is pretty useless.

    Yeah, overlooked the search feature. Didn't see that at first. I'm still relatively new here.

    ...And possibly, you can even get a virus from those 'magic traffic generators" (I did, twice)

    Not necessarily from Tr@fficSw@rm

    At first I did not get the meaning. (I thought you meant Tr@ffic Sw@rm)

    Then I clicked the link.

    Now I must say,

    This is the Best Forum I have seen on the web, it has everything a person need to succeed in Affiliate Marketing.

    (Other forums may have all of these features and more, but ABW is the Best)

    I guess those would be good if you were into MLM and were able to get your links on their first since it seems most people using those services are doing the same... But for driving traffic to an affiliate site or avg. content site = useless, unless you can ever get them to come back after those 10-20 seconds are up... Even if you're running CPM ads, it won't be worth your while to surf for the traffic yourself and I assume most of those have some click fraud detection...

    It's kind of like a community that is closed off from the world and confined in a small space - you see a lot of each other but no one from outside. What good is traffic if it is simply others that are using the service? And, if you have the same person or persons clicking on ppc contextual ads, you could get in some trouble there as well.

    I tried it briefly and stopped using it.
