Pages and Sites

NO porn, adult, or similar content or links (including provocative/sexual page titles, escorts, glamour/booty pages, sexy girl/boy and sex dating sites), casino and gambling, med sales, hacking/cracking/warez or any pirate goods, race hate or similar, extreme political, in-your-face religion, firearms (except antiques)

No redirections to other sites or pages (affiliate redirect links are OK) or misleading download pages.

Advertising URL shortening like ad.fly are not permitted

Hijack scripts, frame-breakers, page rotators, pop-ups, pop-unders are not welcome here - play nice please, don't screw up the system for other members, thank you.

Facebook, Squidoo, Twitter, and Fiverr pages are not permitted on the surf traffic exchange..

Pages selling Facebook Likes or Twitter Followers and similar are not permitted. .

Referral link pages, banners or links for other social exchanges.

Please don't add Twitter or Facebook pages without a profile picture or content if you want likes and follows, if we think the page has been set up simply to farm likes for onward sale it may be removed

Our content review team will disable page links where issues are present - slow loading, page hangs, or where content has been suspended by page owner or ISP. We will, in most cases, advise you of the reason for any page ban by warning notification, however because of the dynamic nature of the auto-surf operation on the Surf Traffic exchange any pages breaking terms or causing operational hangs will be deleted immediately without notice. The most common removals are for pop-ups, advertising URL shorteners, frame-breakers or adding Facebook or Squidoo pages to the surf traffic exchange

Competitors please see separate FAQ below for details of our requirements.



Affiliates & Referrals

You can use our referral links and banners on traffic generating sites, but not click generating traffic or pay to click sites.


To get credits and cash commissions from referrals, the referred new member must be registered and active - that means a) having real and valid uploaded pages and/or social accounts, and b) exchanging with a reasonable number of other members pages for a reasonable time after signing up. Just registering a new name won't get you paid, introducing active and participating members definitely will.

If you want to register just to earn commissions, that's fine as long as you don't break our terms of use - opening up fake memberships just to get commission will get you banned - we will know if you do!

4) Is this system safe to use?
IBOexchange complies with all social networks policies at the time of writing.


Our social exchange adds hits likes and followers organically and naturally over a period of time. These arrive from real people, our members, so the promotion has the same result pattern as from traditional marketing.


We do not sell hits, likes, or followers - and we strongly recommend that you don't buy them from anyone however good the offer sounds. These are usually generated automatically by bots from false accounts - Twitter, Facebook, etc have very powerful software that can detect bots by the footprint of high/fast/sudden traffic volumes they leave on your account, which will likely get you noticed and your page banned.



Using a social media exchange like IBOexchange is a much more sensible and safer option for increasing your social presence.
5) Can I use my referral link on other Traffic Exchange sites?
Yes, definitely - in fact we recommend it! Go to the Affiliates page for tools to quickly insert your affiliate link into the most popular traffic exchanges to maximize your referral, and credits earnings.


Please note we do not permit referral link use on Pay To Click (PTC) or auto-click generation sites.
6) Can I have more than one account?
No, we have recently had to restrict accounts to one per person/IP to help prevent cheating attempts. A perfect example of the few spoiling it for the many - to those legitimate people who share a computer and had a genuine need for a separate account we say sorry.



Each page/site/banner can only be added once per account to avoid duplication.
