I know that autosurf is practically useless in getting real visitors. However, I find that LinkReferral is quite useful in getting some real traffic to my personal websites, although I am not sure about TrafficSwarm.
AdSense does not allow traffic exchange (manual or otherwise) and by extension, also HubPages since it displays AdSense ads. For my personal websites, I create a landing page WITHOUT AdSense ads. I wonder whether I can do it with my HubPages' profile page. I see there's an Adsense advertisement at the bottom of my profile page and wonder whether I can remove that. Or is there a better way of making use of the power of manual traffic exchanges? Anyone using manual traffic exchange here and if so, any recommendations?
Okay... but is LinkReferral considered a traffic exchange site?
Social media is okay, right? I think I will learn how to use social media instead.
Social media is encouraged (within reason); see our guides here:

I'd stay FAR FAR away from link exchanges or any site that promises to help you grow traffic. Hope that helps!
Hi Simone Smith, thank you for your answer and links that would definitely save me a lot of time hunting, not to mention avoiding being banned. I have been learning on my own and these traffic exchange thing seems to be the only thing that frequently crops up in my email. Guess I should be spending my time learning how to make social media work for me instead. It's good coming to HubPages. At least, I found out that traffic exchanges for my own personal websites are practically useless.

Is it allowed to do traffic exchange? In my opinion there is no violation because it will be exchanged with human not the robot and we are also watching their articles in return.But will hubpages allowed that or not?

Today I got a warning violation on one of my hubs and I have no idea what it means or how to fix it. This hub has been copied and plagerized for months by people on RedGage and Digital Writer and FreeAdWebsites and...
