You, check out a few of there sites and leave them comments or suggestions and your rating goes up. Then others visit your site and leave you comments and your rating goes up more! ( Unless you have a site that is irrelevant to the topic you posted it under, or it needs a lot of work. In either case, someone will let you know! ) Here are the requirements:

  • visit 30 sites (they are grouped by categories.)

  • and finally choose one favorite

It e-mails you reports of visits to your site, it’s working great so far!

5. Random Dynamic Sites

Vine Fire

So far, darkbluesun.com hasn’t received a lot of traffic from this site. But I think it is important to post due to the global traffic it generated for The XtremeBaking Blog – another site I run through Virtual IT Assistants.

As you can see, I made 12$ the first day because you get 10$ to start, but I haven’t been back. And it’s not really clear HOW you get your money! LOL, the only reason I am leaving it up is because of the 20 hits I got on the xtreme baking blog. . . It has potential, but if I never see my 12$ I won’t be surprised, but I’ll let you know. It’ll be a new post. . . SCAMS & Time Wasters!

I will keep you posted on the effectiveness of these little traffic generators so stay tuned . . .

Update May 28, 2010:
According to the Topix forum responses, VineFire is no longer available. However, I am not going to delete this information in case anyone wonders why…
It was a SCAM! Not that they took any of your money. They just wasted your time.
