wrote in a previous newsletter, I am not fully convinced of the
positive effects of start pages but you can really increase the
number of visits to your site if you use a system.
article is about how you can easily set up this system and increase
traffic considerably. Follow the four steps and see the results
1 : The Site rotator
first step is to set up a site rotator. A rotator contains the
url's of the business sites you want to promote. So you first have
to add all your business url's to the site rotator. (There are
start pages that don't accept more than one pop-up, so you better
avoid them).The rotator gives you an url that you have to use to
set the rotator as the home page in your web browser. You need
this url later. In this system you don't use it in your browser
but as the target url of your start pages. After filling the site
rotator you proceed to step two. A good site rotator is Rotateapage,
which you can find here,
but when you search in a search engine you will find more.
2: The start Pages
next step is to sign up for start pages. I use 35 start pages but
it may be more. Here you find a list of good start pages. There
are more but these ones work well and they are free.
you set up your start page you have to enter a target url. Enter
the url of the site rotator as mentioned in step 1. The fact that
all the start pages point to the site rotator causes that your
business url's in the rotator will be displayed to the members
of the start pages. How this works you can read in step 3.
3: TX Launcher
the TX launcher, a popular name for Traffic Exchange Launcher,
you can organize your start pages. In this program you can make
groups of start pages in order to use at the same time. In my system
I use 35 start pages. In TX Launcher I have made 7 groups of five
pages, one for each day in the week (the program allows more url's
in each group). A group of five start pages for Sunday, a group
for Monday, a group for Tuesday etc., etc. The program is very
easy to set up. When you have done this you set the url of your
TX Launcher as the home page of your web browser. When you click
the home button, TX Launcher is started and you see the groups
on your screen. Click the day of the week and the five start pages
of the group of that day open simultaneously and you can start
surfing and/or clicking these pages. When a start page allows you
2 hits in one minute and you click for half an hour you add up
to a total of 60 hits. With five pages this is 300 hits. In return
your business url's are exposed in approximately the same number,
depending on the ratio of the start page (some have 1:1, others
2:1 05 10:9 etc.).
TX Launcher comes with a free version that allows you to set up
one group. However, there is also a pro version, in which the number
of groups is unlimited, for only $10 US. It is almost a gift!

step is the easiest one. Sit back, take a cup of coffee and start
surfing. You will see the counter of your business pages move a
