Website Traffic Generator

CNET Editors' review

This automated tool advertises it will boost traffic to your Web sites, but it spends more time generating traffic to one particular site. Web Traffic Generator's plain interface makes it easy to configure some program options. Sites to check and proxy sites are saved in a pair of easily editable text files. A brief Readme text file provides the only user guidance for the program, but it didn't offer any troubleshooting help and the English was truly awful.

Open the app to to enter the number of visits, the interval between visits, and if you'd like to see pages displayed. The program's default sites to check file includes a few sites from the well-known Yahoo and MSN to an unfamiliar site we won't name in this review. Changing the list didn't change the fact the application directed traffic to the unfamiliar site more often than sites listed. Testers concluded the app masks the fact that every installation will direct traffic to that unfamiliar site.

All we found useful with this app was a link to download the Alexa toolbar, but that doesn't justify the steep asking price for this ineffective tool. There's a note that the registered program offers additional benefits, but doesn't elaborate. Frankly, this application seems designed to lure users to directing traffic to the unfamiliar site. We can't recommend it to any user for any reason.

    "How reliable is it?"

    December 30, 2013  |   By frankebele

    Version: Website Traffic Generator 2

    Pros

    It generates traffic quite alright

    Cons

    Internet protocols keep changing everyday and as such there is a possibility that it's performance could be hampered making it ineffective also there are no targeted leads just traffic.
    There is a new revolutionary tool that would solve the above problems.This tool provides specific and targeted leads and traffic to any niche you are promoting and it has a very high conversion rate.That what i use.So i don't just buy traffic,i buy targeted traffic.This software makes use of SMS which is sent to specific leads that are looking for what you can provide for them.

    "Do not pay for so called website traffic generators"

    October 16, 2013  |   By klagoosh

    Version: Website Traffic Generator 2

    Pros

    There are no upsides to paying for a program like this. It's easy to put a real traffic generation system in place at no cost, like the one on http://www.textraffic.com and you are in control.

    Cons

    You're never really in control.
    You have to pay for it.
    You have to trust someone else with YOUR customer delivery system (which they can siphon off).

    Summary

    Create your own website traffic generator. There are a lot of really good blogs on traffic generation that offer excellent FREE advice that works. Webfire is a good software system to own, as it will help automate a lot of the process of advertising in the right places with the right methods, but use it as a tool in your own, customized system. Develop a system like http://www.textraffic.com that is your own and free, and teach any business partners you bring on line how to do the same. You will create a very highly profitable traffic generation system that is your own.

    "Have questionare on this tool"

    December 5, 2012  |   By abroadsales

    Version: Website Traffic Generator 2

    Pros

    This tool Can generate traffic but i wonder is there real traffic?

    Cons

    The tool just lead to virtual traffic, to be honest, this kind of traffic can give target site "traffic", and have something to do with
    SEO. But I wonder whether or not the target traffic can be led to.
    I found one other traffic system which can give you idea on where to leave a post for your marketing and creat many cretive articles and submit to high ranking sites. Maybe it works better:-)

    "Questionable For Increasing Free Traffic And Site Hits"

    May 21, 2012  |   By dfh100

    Version: Website Traffic Generator 2

    Pros

    This tool does generate traffic. Unlike other tools there is traffic to be gained from this tool.

    Cons

    However, you can't describe web traffic gained as targeted traffic. There are many methods for driving traffic using SEO, videos articles etc. However one would not describe this as the best tool to achieve a commercial objective with a business. There are many tools eg. http://real-traffic-webfire-review.blogspot.co.uk/ that allow for free traffic generation but more importantly by using the right keywords produce targeted traffic. Targeted web traffic is the key to sales conversion.
