- Happy Holidays!
- Happy New Year!
- Happy Valentines Day!
Oh wait, you mean it’s almost March? Wow, I’m so behind the times. I just thought, because I saw those messages on splash pages while I was surfing a few minutes ago… well, my exact thought was “Why am I still seeing these things?”. The answer is simple: somebody posted a time-sensitive advertisement on a Traffic Exchange months ago, and has been merrily surfing away and dumping credits into it ever since. Now, I’m not going to say I’ve never done this, it has taken me by surprise a few times when I have checked on what I am advertising, to see something sorely outdated (or even broken) still in rotation. However… I usually keep mental note of what websites I surf often, and those aren’t often the offenders, since I change what I am advertising in my favorite sites frequently. The problem is mostly with Traffic Exchanges I use much less frequently. I try to maintain a habit of checking what ads I have in rotation immediately after logging into a website I haven’t surfed at in quite a while. It is good practice to check on what ads are active, and whether the links are working properly, and then make sure Auto Assign (if applicable) is correctly designated.
While I’m on the topic of being up-to-date, another thing I have had to correct in the past is my user profile (anyone still see my maiden name on a Traffic Exchange, please let me know which one!). Websites sometimes change what info they require for their Terms Of Service, or maybe an old email address needs to be changed to a new one, or the best change is when TEs add new downline builders, and there are fields just waiting to be filled with referral IDs!
Happy surfing, and keep it fresh!
