What is EasyHits4U?

EasyHits4U is the most popular traffic exchange program on the Web with over 1,427,000 registered members. Our program allows you to promote your own sites, referral/affiliate links from other programs, banner and text ads to other registered members, and build your own downline here. We have delivered large volumes of traffic to our members' sites since 2003.

As you probably know, new traffic exchanges pop up every day, but the EasyHits4U traffic exchange is still growing rapidly and becoming more and more popular in the online marketing world. So what makes us so popular and why do so many people keep coming back to this website? You will find the answers as you read this quick guide.

How does it work?

For every site you visit (we call this "surfing"), you will receive one visitor back to your site. We provide a fair 1:1 exchange ratio. There's no limit to the amount of free hits you can receive per day — 10, 100, or even 1,000.

While surfing, you earn credits and receive bonuses on each prize page (credits, banner and text ad impressions, cash, Premium days, surf drawing tickets). Each credit you earn can be exchanged for one visitor to your page. Other terms will be explained below.
Install our browser extension and receive 25% larger bonuses from prize pages, as well as other bonuses.

You can also convert credits into banner and text ad impressions on the "Conversions" page and assign them to your banners and text ads.

You can request payout to your account as soon as you earn the minimum of $3.00. You can also convert earned cash into credits, impressions, or Premium Days at any time.

What can you do on EasyHits4U?

  • Promote your own sites and referral links from other programs you use.
  • Promote your banners and text ads to other members.
  • Add your links to our reciprocal Links Directory.
  • Submit your articles to our Articles section, and much more.

Key Terms

Surfing is the process of viewing sites submitted into rotation by other registered members.

One credit is the same as one visitor to your site. Each credit you earn can be exchanged for one visitor to your page.

Banner/text ad impressions is the number of times a banner/text ad is rendered for viewing. One impression is equivalent to one opportunity to see an ad.
Banners and text ads are shown to all members when they surf member sites and also inside the members' area.

The Exchange ratio can be 2:1 or 1:1 at EasyHits4U.

If your auto-assign ratio is 50% then
– a credit of 0.5 goes to your account balance (as "unassigned" credits which can be assigned to your site later)
– a credit of 0.5 goes towards your Web site balance (as "assigned" credits; 1 credit is equal to 1 visitor).
So, in fact you are getting 1 credit for every site you visit with 1:1 exchange ratio.

While you are surfing you are given surf drawing tickets for the current day's drawing. Ten lucky surfers receive a $1 cash bonus each, ten surfers receive 500 credits each, ten surfers receive 5000 banner impressions each, and ten more surfers receive 5000 text ad impressions each. When the drawing is made at the time of the server restart, winners automatically receive email notifications about their prizes. After that, all old surf drawing tickets are voided and a new drawing starts. More surfing = More drawing tickets = More chances to win!

What are referrals and why do I need them?

  • Free credits from your referrals
  • Upgrade your account to receive even more credits from your referrals
  • You receive a $0.10 cash bonus for every person you refer that surfs 100 or more sites.
