Quick Rewards Program Has New Design, Confirms Account

May 29th, 2007

Today I managed to re-access a program that I had almost forgotten about, the Quick Rewards Network. A few months ago, they changed over to a new server because the old one apparently could not handle the traffic load and there were continual slowdowns and interruptions in service. After joining the program during the period when they were having all of the problems, I became skeptical and had all but given up on them when I could no longer access my account. However, they have now resurfaced with a new server and interface.

Karlonia Finishes in First Place Groups at Two Traffic Exchanges

May 27th, 2007

Last week’s long days of finger-numbing surfing efforts have finally paid off. I have managed to place in the top groups at two different traffic exchanges, Royal Surf and Link Crews. This means lots of extra credits to use for future advertising campaigns.

Royal Surf Offers Cheaper Credits, Contests

May 24th, 2007

The administrator of Royal Surf is extending the opportunity to purchase website credits at lower prices for a few more days and is also offering higher random bonuses to regular surfers.

Similar to Medieval Surf, Royal Surf is a traffic exchange that awards website credits to members based on the number of sites visited, referrals, bonus clicks, and overall activity. It is one of the faster exchanges out there; it has a 10 second timer with regular bonuses of 4-10 credits for every 20 sites viewed (you have to click on the link that appears on the surfbar in order to claim the credits).

What I like about them is that they have a nice ranking system that awards members for regular activity. All members are ranked into “kingdoms” of 20 people each according to the number of points that each member has earned during the current week. Points are earned mostly by surfing, but a few extra points may be obtained by referral activity or through purchases of upgrades and credits from the site. At the end of the week, the top five kingdoms (which equates to the top 100 members) are awarded bonus credits based on the total activity of all members during the previous week.

In recent weeks, the exchange has experienced a backlog of extra credits, so the admin is selling them off a below normal prices and is also awarding somewhat larger surfbar bonuses for currently active members. Here is the latest announcement:

Fast Food Advertisements Don’t Stack Up

May 23rd, 2007

Earlier today, I received an email tip about an interesting photo experiment at thewvsr.com that compared different types of fast food items with their images that are broadcast on television and in print advertisements. Perhaps not surprisingly, the actual foods do not look as attractive as they do in the ads, but in some cases there is a pretty substantial difference.

Medieval Hits Traffic Exchange Changes Ownership

May 22nd, 2007

There has been a changing of the guard at the castle of Medieval Hits, a relatively new traffic exchange that I joined very soon after it opened about a month ago.

Apparently the previous “king” has stepped down and sold off the remnants of his fledgling kingdom to Canadian Internet marketer Larry Phillips. Concerning the plans of our new monarch, the latest email is pretty much self-explanatory:
