Traffic Hoopla has been one of the largest and more successful ranking services and downline builders for the traffic exchange and safelist industry since 2002.  That’s a really long time!

I just got a chance to check out their latest creation called List Hoopla which is dedicated entirely to safelists and viral list builders.

You can check it out here:

As you probably know I post my own safelist rankings here on my blog every month.

What is the difference between List Hoopla ranking and my own?

According to the Hoopla website:

“Overall Rankings are determined by a composite score from raw hits, primary conversion rate, secondary conversion rate, new visitors, bounce rate, unique hits, unique percentage, and commissions paid.”

While I just rank by the number of sign-ups I received.

Which is better?  Well, it doesn’t really matter.  The purpose is to find new advertising sources that you are not already using and then track them to find out which ones work best for you.  I even spotted a few new mailers on the List Hoopla site where I was not already a member.  I just joined them and I am looking forward to seeing what kind of results I get next month.

List Hoopla is also a downline builder which is something I don’t offer (yet).  So if you join make sure you fill in your referral IDs so can start building your downlines in the top ranked List Hoopla sites.

The Best Safelists for December 2011

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello again!

As we close in on the end of another year it’s time once again to dig out some stats and see which safelists and viral list builders are bringing in the best results today.

Before we get to the stats, here’s what’s going on in the world of safelists and viral list builders…

In October John Bell released his take on a modern VLB with Viral List Builder Plus.  I didn’t have enough data to share my stats from this site last month but this month I do.  As you can see from the stats below it looks as though John has another winner on his hands.

The Lead Magnet is celebrating it’s one year anniversary.  At the time The Lead Magnet was launched there was a whole slew of other VLBs being launched.  Some lasted while others did not.  Stefan Berg has proven that he has what it takes to manage a successful mailer and the fact that it is at the top of my list of top performing sites every month should be reason enough to join if you haven’t already.

State of the Art Mailer is in the process of rolling out a new feature called the “Downline Builder Surfing Bonus”.  What this does is allow members to have free and even paid members placed into their downline by simply doing what they are already doing… namely clicking their emails.  They are working on a few more social media aspects to the feature which should be complete sometime next week.  I am really looking forward to see how well this works.

The members area inside Viral URL just got a facelift.  Welcome to the 21st century!

Anybody got a referral link for Email Hog and List Outbreak?  I am looking forward to giving these a try.

Ok, time for the stats!

I like to preface these with a little disclaimer so you know how these stats were obtained.  Every day (or as often as I am allowed) I send out ads to 30+ safelists and viral list builders promoting squeeze pages for my ebook Safelist Marketing Tactics.  I keep track of how many times my webpage is viewed from each mailer along with the number of new subscribers I received.  I spend about an hour each day clicking emails for credits.  I also have upgraded memberships in most of these mailers which often allow me to reach more members more often.  These are my own personal stats and are only intended to let you see what is working best for me.  Your results may vary.

Hits Unique Signups Ratio
Adchiever 2584 74.00% 13 0.50%
The Lead Magnet 1254 61.00% 12 0.96%
Viral List Builder Plus 1066 64.00% 12 1.13%
List Joe 865 78.00% 10 1.16%
List Bonus 705 77.00% 8 1.13%
State of the Art Mailer 2970 72.00% 7 0.24%
Viral Ad Store 603 65.00% 7 1.16%
Elite Safelist 2504 42.00% 6 0.24%
Ultimate Profit List 1134 62.00% 6 0.53%
List Adventure 1049 58.00% 5 0.48%
The List Auction 190 62.00% 4 2.11%
Viral URL 32 84.00% 4 12.50%
Elevated Power List 199 57.00% 4 2.01%
Adsolutionline 2313 41.00% 3 0.13%
Quick List Profits 386 70.00% 3 0.78%

Quite a bit of action last month.  For the vast majority of the month List Joe was at the top with a very large lead.  During the final week it dropped down to number 3 behind The Lead Magnet and Viral List Builder Plus.  Then within an hour of doing my final mailings for the month Adchiever brought me 3 new subscribers bringing it into the top position.

I’d like to welcome Viral List Builder Plus to the list.  I’ve been very happy to see what John Bell has brought to the community and it’s great to see his new mailer performing so well.  If you are not already a member this is definitely the best new site to come along in awhile and is well worth your time to join.

That’s all for this month.  Hopefully I will have a few new sites to review for next month.  Until then make sure you keep tracking your results because if you don’t you will never know which sites are working for you and which ones are not. You can get the same link tracker that I use for free when you join TE Toolbox.
