A traffic exchange is a type of website on the Internet, which provides a service for webmasters to exchange of traffic. Blog exchange is a special traffic exchanges for blogs. A blog exchange program applies this basic idea: view other member’s blog and they will view yours. It is classified in two, automatic and manual.
In the manual blog exchange, you manually click through the other members blog. To earn one visitor you must wait for the programmed time to expire (this varies from 20 or 30 seconds, depending on the blog exchange you signed up for) before clicking the next site in rotation. More often than not, bonus points are given to regular surfers, assuring you of visitors to your blog.
Automatic blog exchange (autosurf) is blog exchanges that automatically rotate advertised blog in one’s Internet browser. Autosurf differs from manual blog exchanges in that the blog rotation is automatic; an ad viewer need not respond or even view the sites.
Such blog exchanges are BlogExplosion, BlogMad, BlogAZoo and BlogAdvance.
Traffic is the key to getting profit. The more traffic for your blog, the more changes you get click for your AdSense.
Adsense states in its policies on Prohibited Clicks and Impressions:
Any method that artificially generates clicks or impressions is strictly prohibited. These prohibited methods include but are not limited to: repeated manual clicks or impressions, incentives to click or to generate impressions, using robots, automated click and impression generating tools, third-party services that generate clicks or impressions such as paid-to-click, paid-to-surf, autosurf, and click-exchange programs, or any deceptive software. Please note that clicking on your own ads for any reason is prohibited, to avoid potential inflation of advertiser costs.
You can not join autosuft traffic exchange for your blog or site that display Google AdSense. How abou manualsurf? Although it is not specifically mentioned in the policies regarding manual surfing, it still is a tool that generates impression and part of a click-exchange program.
I’m not really sure to join blog exchange for my blog that display Google AdSense. My personal experience, there is a litle even no click result from blog exchange. When I asked Google Team about manual surf, they said:
We understand that you would like to have more traffic visiting your site. However, we do not endorse or encourage the use of any traffic exchange programs for this purpose.
We recommend that you exercise caution when using traffic exchange programs to ensure that you do not violate the AdSense Terms and Conditions and that you do not artificially inflate your pageviews or clicks. Please note that AdSense participants are solely responsible for verifying that any tools or software used in conjunction with AdSense do not violate the AdSense Terms and Conditions.

To protect your interests as well as those of our advertisers, Google monitors clicks and impressions on Google ads to prevent any abuse of the AdSense program. Google’s proprietary technology analyzes all ad clicks and impressions for any activity intended to artificially drive up an advertiser’s costs or a publisher’s earnings.
Clicks or impressions deemed by our monitoring system to be invalid will appear in your reports, but because advertisers are not charged for them, no associated revenue will be shown. Please rest assured that your account is being properly credited for all valid clicks and impressions.
