Setting Up The Traffic Exchanges

  • On the menu bar, click "Traffic Exchanges", then click "Signup Info".
  • A dialog window will open, fill in the form with all your details. The info you enter here will be used whenever you signup to a Traffic Exchange. All fields are required, except "Paypal Email" and "AlertPay Email".
  • On the menu bar, click "Traffic Exchanges", then click an individual Traffic Exchange and another menu will pop out.
    • If you are already a member of that exchange:
      • Click "Login Info". A dialog window will open, enter your Username and Password.
      • Then specify a minimum and maximum daily surf limit. Each day the software will randomly pick a number between the minimum and maximum, that will be the surf limit for that traffic exchange on that day.
      • Once you are happy with your settings, click "Save".
    • If you are not already a member of that exchange:
      • Click "Signup". A browser window will open on the signup page and the software will fill in the form for you with the details you entered into the software earlier. There maybe other info you need to fill in, like a captcha field. Once all required fields have been filled in, click the "Signup" button at the bottom of the page.
      • Confirm your email address (you should find a confirmation link in your email account) to complete the signup process.
      • On the menu bar, click "Traffic Exchanges", then click the exchange you just joined and from the menu that pops out, click "Login Info". A dialog window will open, enter your Username and Password.
      • Then specify a minimum and maximum daily surf limit. Each day the software will randomly pick a number between the minimum and maximum, that will be the surf limit for that traffic exchange on that day.
      • Once you are happy with your settings, click "Save".
  • Repeat this process for all Traffic Exchanges in the "Traffic Exchanges" menu.
  • NOTE: See below for more info on "Daily Surf Limits".

Logging Into The Traffic Exchanges

  • On the menu bar, click "Traffic Exchanges", then click the traffic exchange you want to login to, then click "Login".
  • A browser window will open, the browser window will automatically Maximize itself. Then the software will fill in the login form and automatically login for you.

Surfing The Traffic Exchanges

  • On the menu bar, click "Traffic Exchanges", then click the traffic exchange you want to surf, then click "Surf".
  • A browser window will open, the software will automatically fill the login form, login and load the surfing URL for you.
  • The browser window is small but it's big enough to auto-surf. Don't worry if you can't see the images as the software will automatically move them when you start auto-surfing. You can't move or resize the browser windows but that doesn't matter because the software automatically sets them to the correct size and positions them nicely for you.
  • Repeat the above 3 steps adding as many exchanges as you want to surf simultaneously (I recommend no more than 15, but if you have a super fast computer and internet connection you may be able to do more).
  • Once you've opened all the traffic exchanges that you want to surf, click "Auto-Surf" from the menu bar and then click "Start" (or use the shortcut - Ctrl+S).
  • NOTE: The software may move your mouse pointer while it's auto-surfing so once you are ready to stop auto-surfing use the shortcut keys (Ctrl+S). Also the software works by taking screen shots, so it's important that you don't attempt to do other things on the computer at the same time, the software must always be on top, if it's hidden behind other applications it won't work correctly.
  • I have done my best to include all of the verification page questions in the software, however I may have missed a few or the traffic exchange owners may add more from time to time. If the software comes across a verification page that it doesn't know about, the software will stop auto-surfing, then it'll display a dialog window with the verification question and two buttons (True and False). Answer the question by clicking the applicable button, the software will save the new verification question and start auto-surfing again. Once it's saved it, the software will be able to complete that verification page next time without needing to ask you for the answer. Also if you turn up your speakers, the software will talk to you (whenever it comes across a new verification question) telling you that it requires your attention.

What Are Surf Schedules?

  • Surf Schedules make it much easier to auto-surf, they save info that specifies which traffic exchanges you want to surf and the order to surf them. Once a traffic exchange has reached the daily surf limit the software will logout and close that traffic exchange and then automatically open, login and start surfing the next traffic exchange in the schedule.
  • How to add a Surf Schedule:
    • On the menu bar, click "Surf Schedules", then click "Add Surf Schedule", a dialog window will open with a list of traffic exchanges that you've entered your login info for.
    • Give your new surf schedule a name.
    • Specify the maximum number of traffic exchanges to open at one time, if you enter a number that's to high (depending on the speed of your computer and internet connection), it may slow down your computer and the software may not run effeciently. To start, I'd recommend no more than 15 but you maybe able to do more (I can do 25 on my computer). You can play around with this setting to see what a good number is for you.
    • From the list of traffic exchanges to add, select a traffic exchange you want added and click the "Add" button, that traffic exchange will be moved to the list of added traffic exchanges, continue this process until you have added all the traffic exchanges you want to add.
    • You can change the priority of each traffic exchange by moving them up or down within the list of added traffic exchanges. Select the traffic exchange to move up or down and then click the applicable button (up or down).
    • Once you have added all the traffic exchanges you want to add and you are happy with the priority order, click the "Save" button.
  • How to open a Surf Schedule:
    • Make sure you don't have any traffic exchange browser windows open.
    • On the menu bar, click "Surf Schedules", then click the surf schedule you want to open, then click "Open Surf Schedule".
    • Note: The software will open the first traffic exchange in the schedule, wait a few seconds and open the next, then wait a few seconds and open the next, etc, etc, until the maximum number of traffic exchanges to open has been reached. You can change the time between each traffic exchange opening in the "Options" dialog. See below for info on how to get to the "Options" dialog.

Options Dialog

  • On the menu click "Traffic Exchanges", then click "Options".
  • You can specify whether or not to record each site that's visited while auto-surfing, so if you want to view the sites later you can. This option was added because some users like to keep up to date with the sites that are being promoted in the traffic exchanges, however it's up to you whether or not you use this feature. Note: If you do use this feature it may slow the software down when the list of sites visited becomes really large, so if you see the software running slowly, clear out the list of sites visited. You can access the list of sites visited by clicking "Traffic Exchanges" (from the menu bar), then click "View Sites Visited". This option is disabled by default.
  • You can specify whether or not the software should wait between opening each traffic exchange (when opening a surf schedule) by enabling/disabling the "Login Slowly" option, however doing so is not recommended because quite often the software has a hard time logging in automatically when it's disabled. This option is enabled by default.
  • You can specify the time between each traffic exchange opening (when opening a surf schedule), the time is specified in seconds and the default setting is 5 seconds.

Custom Daily Surf Limits

  • You can specify the minimum and maximum daily surf limit for each traffic exchange. From the menu bar click "Traffic Exchanges", then click the traffic exchange you want to set a surf limit for, then click "Login Info". A dialog box will open, set the minimum and maximum and then click "Save".
  • The software will randomly pick a number between the minimum and maximum (each day) and that will be the surf limit for that traffic exchange on that day.
  • If you don't want to specify a daily surf limit, you can click the "Unlimited Daily Surf" checkbox.
  • Once the software has auto-surfed the maximum allowed by the traffic exchange or the random limit based on the mimimum and maximum you specify (whichever is lowest), the software will automatically logout and close that traffic exchange.
