Has Anyone tried Free Traffic System?

    Has anyone tried http://www.freetrafficsystem.com ? Would you says it's white hat and safe or black hat and could get penalised? Is this just like a modern version of a link farm?

    Also is their free membership whereby they add a link of their own to each of your articles on the blogs worth anything? Won't this leave a major "footprint" for Google to pick up?

    Will Google get to know the blogs they use and discount them?

    Its complete waste of time. Natural work always pays more than anything. Build links regularly and get a real and targeted traffic.

    It will convert in lots of dollars but not that the free traffic you have mentioned here..

    The problem with this service that for free users they add a link to the actual service which is a big red flag, for paying as well as free as even paid member articles will be on the same sites that free member articles are on so if it does or has looked into it it will be very easy to link which members are using this system.

    Big waste of time....used it for a year and results v.s. effort was terrible. They are not a transparent service so you have no idea where they are placing your links. Big complaint from many users. I have read other forums where users did some digging and they found their link on some bad sites.

    If you do some research, you will find more negative remarks than good. Most good are affiliates, owners of FTS or those who do cross business with FTS. I knew one guy who spent $400 on the pro service and really was ticked at the results for the money.

    But research and decide for yourself, you will find other independent reviews from users on other forums.

    Don't do it - in the long run - allow your unique, interesting material get backlinked naturally.

    How does it compare with TrafficKahuna? Would you say the effort vs results are equivalent?

    This kind of traffic is not natural and should be avoided.

    I've never tried it, may be I should, cause sometimes even if you have a good material it doesn't get backlinked naturally...

    I believe it works well and has certainly helped my blogs get more traffic to say the least as well as me not having to worry so much about writing on them all myself as the system allows you to submit blogs that you can accept content from other writers on. Top Notch system

    It sounds just like another service that I know about and just as someone else mentioned, it is a waste of time with almost no results. I wouldn't even signup for a free 30 day trial that didn't ask for a credit card. blah

    Don't knock it until ya tried it has anyone had any failures using the system I would like to know what they were if they are bad enough to stop using it?

    Can someone please also explain to me how getting a dofollow backlink from within a blog post it not natural I just don't get how you can say that? Are you trying to suggest that blog comments are more natural than in post backlinks? Have I been under a rock for many years?

    Bro, check out what Steveeyes said:

    "Big waste of time....used it for a year and results v.s. effort was terrible. They are not a transparent service so you have no idea where they are placing your links. Big complaint from many users. I have read other forums where users did some digging and they found their link on some bad sites.

    If you do some research, you will find more negative remarks than good. Most good are affiliates, owners of FTS or those who do cross business with FTS. I knew one guy who spent $400 on the pro service and really was ticked at the results for the money.

    But research and decide for yourself, you will find other independent reviews from users on other forums. "

    These are my exact thoughts. It is a huge waste of time for zero benefit and no extra visitors or revenue. I don't think there is any danger involved like what some people mentioned above but it is worthless. In fact, they should be paying us to use it. The amount of time it requires pulls us away from real opportunities.

    Free traffic helps you to just inflate your stats...nothing more! I wonder what purpose such traffic serves, except helping one cheat his/her website buyer with wrong stats about the visitors! :(

    If you truly wish to monetize your site, help it with giving it real and genuine visitors! :)

    You definitely hit it on the head here. I couldn't agree with you more.

    Right to the POINT!

    Freetrafficsystem, just like any other links network (blog network) need to be supplemented with different types of links to be effective. The backlinks you get are kind of spammy. MFA type sites.
