How this works
10K Traffic wants to provide as much aid and assistance to webmasters as
possible. This system is designed to help webmasters get traffic to
their sites in a simple, cost-effective way. This benefits the webmasters
in a couple ways:
- More traffic means potentially higher ratings on statistical sites, such
as Alexa and SiteRanking
- Higher statistical ratings mean potentially higher relevance on search
- More traffic means more exposures and impressions are made of your site
and it's advertisements
- More traffic means better positioning at 'topsite' websites
- TopSites are just more categorical-specific versions of a statistical
- More traffic means more potential customers coming through your website
One mistake that many Traffic Exchanges make is telling a webmaster that they
will be "flooded with targeted customers, ready to buy". That is not the
primary purpose of a Traffic Exchange.
The primary purpose of a Traffic Exchange is to generate traffic to the
That being said, if your target audience is "webmasters working on promoting
their websites", then you will probably reach some potential customers.
But even then, do not expect high conversion rates. Webmaster surfers are
all in the same boat: they want more traffic, for higher ratings, for better
rankings, to get customers from the larger search engines.
In a nutshell: You visit other websites through one of our viewer systems and
earn 'credits'. Each credit entitles one of your pages to be shown to
someone else. For those interested in tech-speak, we offer both Auto Surf
and Manual Surfing options.
You are a webmaster, and you want web-surfers to see your website, for all
the reasons listed above. 10K Traffic
will show your website to other users, at a
cost of 1 'credit each time your website is shown. So, as long as you have
'credits' available, your site will be shown to our other 10K Traffic users.
[Using a train metaphor: We'll let you put your station on our tracks.
Trains carrying passengers will stop at your station, as long as your station
has 'tokens' to stop the train. Passengers earn credits by riding
the train to other Relay.]
credits are gained in a couple different ways:
- When you first join 10K Traffic , you are given some batons
- You can choose to 'be a runner', and surf other sites through one of
our display systems. For every site you visit, you will earn credits
- We also sell batons, with bulk-discounting available. i.e.: When you buy
more credits, you pay less per baton.
- You can display our referral page. Each display to a unique user on
a given day will earn some credits.
- You can also refer other members. If someone signs up through your
referral page, you get credits when they sign up, and a percentage of their baton
earnings when they are a passenger.
- If someone you referred purchases something or upgrades their membership,
you get some batons from that, as well.
more of your website's pages, and every time that page is viewed, you earn
between 0.1 and 0.15 credits, depending on the size of banner you select.
Different earning and referral ratios are available to different 'levels' of
membership. For specifics on how many credits are earned in different ways
at each level of membership, see our Membership
Levels page in the Pricing section.
Terminology used on 10K Traffic
We are using a 'runners' motif to add a little color and individuality to our
Course - A website (or part of a site) that dedicated to Traffic
Exchanging. A course contains tracks and shuttles, to carry runners
between stops, Relays, and other courses.
batons - A unit of
value. 1 credit allows a member to show one page they wish promoted 1
time. batonss may be earned through viewing, referrals, or they may
Stops or Stations - A page on a web site. This is what the runners
views to earn batons.
Relay - A block of related
stops that can be presented in a particular order to runners.
This allows webmasters to create longer, more attractive, or more
meaningful messages to runners.It has a nice side-effect, since it
will look to site-statistics systems as though each user is 'clicking through'
multiple pages, creating longer visit times.
Tracks - A connection between Relays,
and between separate courses. This software provides the tracks to
move runners around the internet.
The Shuttle - The 10k Traffic website is the train... it takes runners on "runs" through various websites in exchange for batons.
Runner - A web surfer, using our viewer to view sites like
yours in exchange for batons (or cash). This is also the generic term
used for any membership level.
Riders - A high-volume runner.
They get extra benefit by being a more-frequent runner. This
bonus can add on to any membership level.
400 Meter - A monthly
membership fee allows the 400m Runner to manage lots of Stops (many pages to
display), create their first Relays, and travel faster and more profitably than
a Free Runner.
800 Meter - A monthly membership fee entitles the 800 Meter Runner to travel on faster trains, and earn more batons per stop.
As 'as a sprinter', 800 Meter Runner have an advantage over 400 Meter Runners.
Again, more Relays, and faster travel.
200 Meter Hurdler - A monthly
membership fee entitles the 200 Meter Hurdler to manage more stops than an 800 Meter runner.
400 Meter Hurdler - An option for those in
extreme need of very heavy traffic. A monthly fee provides a 400 Meter Hurdler with extreme speed, and more options. 400 Meter Hurdlers have the most control within a
given course of any user outside of the Decathlon Runner, and may create up to 4 Relays.
Decathlon Runners - As member of 10K Traffic a valued member of NWT Network. Decathlon Runners can run
their own copy of this software (their own course), bringing in
others to expand our network. To learn more about the our network, we have created
a section called all about the network.
We envision 10K Traffic as the 'Central Course Controller', where we can all can all benefit.
