Trafficswarm – a failure

I heard a lot about this site. So I registered and thought of giving it a try. Basically it is another site which helps you to build traffic for your blog or website. You need to surf for whatever time you want. Earn credits for what you have surfed. Usually you get to click some links and every click gives different amount of credits.

It varies from 1 to 1000 they say. So far the highest I got was 5 credits. The concept is very simple. The credits you earn are redeemed towards ads for your site. For every display of ad 1 credit gets deducted. There are types of ads you can configure. Some type of ads are bigger and get you noticed but cost more credits.

The thing I didn’t like was the credit deduction. It gets deducted for display. So you are never sure of a click. And that means you are not sure of traffic. That’s a big minus. I sign and do task in order to get sure shot traffic. Like Linkreferral, I do task I get traffic. I don’t do I don’t get. So far I hardly got any hits from trafficswarm. I was expecting it to be as good as Linkreferral. But it’s nowhere near to it. Continue reading → Web Hosting

I found this webhosting cool. Its got some great features.
Free hosting includes free FTP, PHP 5 scripting support, MySQL and our very popular feature:
The Automatic Script Installer (Like Fantastico) You can install many popular scripts such as PHPbb2 and PHPbb3, WordPress, Zen-Cart, osCommerce, MyBB, UseBB, MyLittle Forum, 4images, Coppermine, SMF, Joomla, e107, XOOPS, PHP Wind, CuteNews, Mambo, WikiWig and many more!

The bad thing is that the php runs in safe mode. So some php features are not available. FTP is good and it doesn’t run in safe mode. So you can Move\Rename.

The Detailed Specification are:
350 MB disk space
15 GB monthly transfer
FTP account
All file types allowed
Online File manager
5 addon domains
5 parked domains
5 sub domains
