The Difference Between Safelists & Traffic Exchanges

Sailing with Albie!

Hi Team! 

If you don’t plan ahead, you will fall into someone else’s plan. 


.This week I want to share something important about Safelists and Text Exchanges that could have a profound effect on our team! PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO READ THIS! 


.How are you this week? This week we had five subscribers five people ask for the link, four people emailed me back and we had 2 new sign ups this week! CONGRATS to our newest members Steaven Jiles and welcome back Lyn Lewis!

 Thank to Elizabeth for helping us with Step Twelve of the Sixteen Steps! Her team hit a total of 9000 hits this week! Great work!

Arthurs has had 1400 hits for his team this week. Good job! Torab (under Arthur) has received a total of five new members to his team and is ALMOST our newest TEAM LEADER!

Congrats to,  Edet, John Vance and Steve for getting  their 1000 hits! Congrats to Steve for his first thousand!!!

Great work Steve for getting through most of Step 4! Great work Edet for going back to Step 4 to go through TEP even though he is ready to start Step 6. 

 Good job everyone working to get to the next step or to get hits for the team including Lyn, Walter, Roger, Wayne & Leyon and Shane Please contact me this week to move forward.

  Richard, Mark, Juan, Brenna, Phil, Joseph, Esther, Brian Ramirez, Henry and Jeremy please contact me this week as we want to help you find success on our team too! 

We did combined total of 9,830 hits this week. If you add both Elizabeta’s team and Arthurs together we had  27,069 hits. Thank you for all your hits this week. For some we need to put in some more effort. We could NOT have done that many hits without ALL of your help. This combined total allowed us to bring in 3 new members this week, so remember how important you are to all of this.

Don’t forget that getting a 1000 hits allows you to be qualified to receive new members under you and become a team leader also.  Also don’t forget to go after getting you $25 starting bonus while you have time!





This week I want to share with you the difference between Safelists and Traffic Exchanges



.. Scroll down below article to find HIT COUNTS 🙂




TE’s & Safelists:

What’s the difference? 


There is certainly a difference, and this difference should be understood!


I searched the internet looking for others views on the difference.


Warrior Forum has a lot to say, but most of the people who share their opinions here have little real experience about the two of them. I have been using these methods since 2012 and understand a lot.


But some statistics I found on the forum  from a few people that seemed to know what they were talking about seemed to have similar thoughts as the comment below from glynlafferty:

“Using Safelists you can usually get a conversion rate at around 5% and with traffic exchanges it’s much lower.”


Warrior Forum Note on Safelists & TE’s


He also commented:


“I use safelists for listbuilding and can get anything up to 15 leads per day from them. The main thing is not to get bogged down in them only some of them work that have active clickers the rest of them are useless.”


.Also the GDI Team Elite website says that “…Traffic Exchanges do not get the results that Safelists and Mailers get.”


From GDI Website about Safelists and TE’s

“…However its results we need to bring in new members, and the cold hard truth is that safelists and mailers are getting results. We, your GDI team elite upline have many years of advertising experience and we all agree that safelists are bringing in more new members that any other FREE method.


From GDI Website about Safelists and TE’s. This can be viewed at


“…There are some great ones like EasyHits4U and I personally use any method I can to to promote my team link…”


So we see that GDI Team Elite is not entirely against Traffic Exchanges. Let me now add my thoughts on the subject:


My thoughts are thus: The good Traffic Exchanges and Safelists are very similar in nature. They both require you to view fellow member ads and open the link to  websites where you then confirm you saw it and then you move on to the next one. However, there ARE some specific differences:


Disadvantage of TE’s: 

  1. Safelists links are often opened up from an email and even though MOST emails are not read, this still gives a slight advantage that the viewer MAY decide to read it if something catches their attention.
  2. Even when clicking on links from a Safelist (and NOT opening an email) when you FINISH confirming that you saw the website, the ad page does not disappear like on a TE until you actively click the page off, thus giving you another chance to view the page if there was still something you forgot to view but suddenly have a last minute reason to view it once more.
Advantage of Text Exchange:.
1. Text Exchanges do not allow you to only use a certain amount of credits. You can keep clicking to eternity and adding more and more credits as you do.
Most Safelists only allow you to mail your ad every two or three days or on occasion once a day but this is usually because of an upgrade if so and most do not give this privilege even with the full upgrade. So this IS an advantage for a TE.
Some exception safelists that I can think of are EuropeansafelistMountainHigh Mailer and MailOurList. These three allow you to mail EVERYDAY with an upgrade and MailOurList if you are upgraded and have enough credits or if you view 40 ads each day. 
*Note: If you want the link for these safelists, they are mentioned at the end of this page if you scroll all the way down
These two disadvantages and reasons alone allow a slight advantage for Safelists over even the best Text Exchanges.
Even though the one advantage of Text Exchanges is a good one it still does not give the slight advantage of having your website viewed in a more comprehensive way.
The one thing I do suggest when using Safelists and Traffic Exchanges is that the more your website gets viewed, the more possibility you have of someone being curious enough to view it more carefully.
Having your picture and your name attached to the page (or your team leaders in our case) increases this chance even more and if you add new and interesting splash pages into the mix – along with the time tested proven ones, this opens the door even more! 
One more Note: 
As you probably know, we promote TE Profits (TEP) inside Step four and I am still agreeable with this strategy as it teaches a great strategy that can also be applied to Safelists too. Just be sure to apply the strategy to Safelists too!
In light of all of this, and after discussion with my personal team leader and sponsor Kathy Von Geldern, I suggest focusing on a dozen good Safelists and then moving on to good Text Exchanges afterwords if you still have time.
I hope this has helped give you understanding and a solid strategy to help your team and eventually HELP YOU build YOUR TEAM!
The last thing you want is a team that is NOT focused on using good solid advertising and helping you get the new members you need to all grow!

If you have trouble getting your 1000+ hits, you know what to do….just ask me or your direct sponsor for help. And remember that auto-surfing is not allowed simply because no one sees our ads. If no one sees them then no signups comes our way for us.


Hope this encourages you on your weekly mission getting your hit counts!

In short, this is a business and there are no guarantees in business. Nothing in this presentation or on this website is intended to convey that there is any guarantee of income.
