The original social traffic exchange. Swap traffic and business with real people from around the world.

The Basics (the Good & the Bad)


  1. Manual Traffic Exchange
    • 3:1 surf ratio for free members
    • 1:1 or 2:1 surf ratio for paid members
  2. 3 second timer for viewing websites
  3. Banner Advertising
  4. Affiliate Program – 10% to 30% Commissions
  5. Referral Program – Earn traffic 5% to 20% when referrals surf

The Good

  • You can earn credits quickly here because they only have a 3 second timer.
  • The more you surf, the more credits you earn through their surfing bonus.
  • You can chat with other members, potentially making surfing more interesting.
  • If you are a member of Click Track Profit, you can earn badges by surfing here.

The Drawbacks

  • Since the timer is only 3 seconds, your splash page or website must be very effective.
  • They have limited promotional materials.  For example, they only offer splash pages and 486×60 banner ads.
