Top 12 Sweeva Tips and Tricks

1. Read the FAQ –  Sweeva is a unique program combining the elements of social networking and free traffic exchange programs.  The more you understand how the system works the easier it will be for you to take advantage of all the features it has to offer.

2. Update Your Profile – Sweeva is a social site.  That means that other members are going to be just as interested in who you are as they are about what you are promoting.  Keep your profile updated and don’t forget to upload your photo to Gravatar.

3. Organize Your Websites – Every page you submit to Sweeva will be visible on your profile.  Even if you don’t plan to spend any credits promoting a page it’s a good idea to have a list of your sites that can be viewed by other members.  Tip: Add your sites with the Sweeva toolbar to earn toolbar loyalty points.

4. Add Quality Feedback – Sweeva gives you the ability to receive instant feedback on any pages that you are promoting.  By leaving quality comments on other people’s sites you are not only earning experience points for yourself but you are also helping to get yourself recognized as a valuable member of the Sweeva community.

5. Add Profile Comments – Check out some of the profiles of other members and post a personal message on their page.  Ask them about their sites or just introduce yourself.  Obviously don’t spam them with your offers but take advantage of this opportunity to network with other members.

6. Support Your Downline – If you refer a new member to Sweeva post a message on their profile to welcome them.  Let them know that you are available to help them if they need it.  Remember, the more active your Sweeva referrals are the greater your rewards.

7. Strike While the Iron is Hot – Regardless of how many credits you bid your site will only be seen by however many people are surfing at the time it is shown.  The number of people surfing varies throughout the day but you can get a good idea of when Sweeva is most active by looking at the daily stats. You can also see how many people are currently online by looking at the “Previous Site” numbers at the bottom of the members area.  Wait until there is a good sized crowd of people surfing before you show your site to maximize your page’s exposure.  Tip: Activity tends to go way up right after the owners send out an email update.

8. Conserve Your Credits – If you plan on surfing Sweeva for awhile try adjusting your bids to see how low you can go.  It usually takes about 10 minutes to find out if your bid has been accepted.  Don’t overbid unless you really want to get your site seen now.

9. Engage Your Guests – My favorite way to use Sweeva is to be present when my site is being shown.  This lets me personally welcome people to my page and let them know that I am there if they have any questions.  Be social.  Thank people if they say something nice.  Give out stars.  Have fun with it and reap the rewards.

10. Clean Your Comments – This might seem controversial but I delete unwanted comments from my pages before they are shown.  Negative comments are fine because it gives me a chance to interact with people but I would rather people only see the quality comments on my page.  A page full of people posting “ok” and “good” does nothing to benefit you.  It’s no different than tidying up your home before you invite over company.  Delete the junk from your comments to make sure the important comments can be seen.

11. Upgrade Your Membership – If you can afford it the upgraded Sweeva membership is one of the best deals around.  Not only will you earn greater commissions from your downline but you will also earn credits and XP faster than free members.

12. Be Creative – Sweeva is your social networking community.  You can make it into whatever you want it to be.  Think of new ways to interact with other members.  Try out a new splash page.  Record a video.  Have a contest.  Be social.  It’s your Sweeva.  Have fun with it!

New Sweeva Prize Widgets

Author: Jerry Iannucci

I was hanging out in Traffic Exchange Live today where Jon Olson gave us an overview of the new prize widgets that went live at Sweeva today.

The Sweeva widget is a little javascript app that you can put on your website that either shows your personal Sweeva stats or a live thumbnail of the current page being shown on Sweeva.  You earn points every time your Sweeva widget is viewed and of course you get a referral if someone joins Sweeva through your widget.

Starting today the Sweeva widget will randomly start giving away prizes!  Instead of the usual content it will display a “Hidden Bonus” message and if you click it you will win the prize.  What’s cool is that not only does the person clicking the widget win a prize but the prize is split with the person displaying the widget.

This makes for a fun “easter egg hunt” that will hopefully get people looking at your page.  I know a bunch of us spent some time today visiting each other’s websites looking for prizes.

I have the Sweeva widget installed here on my blog.

Can you find it?

If you win a prize please post a comment below.

Refreshing the page won’t help but make sure you check the Sweeva widget everytime you visit my blog.  You never know when you will be the next winner.

My Sweeva Review

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Tuesday!

While I know many of you have already joined I thought today would be a good day to write a quick Sweeva review for those of you who still have not checked it out.

In case you missed it.  Sweeva is a new concept traffic exchange program that was created by Jon Olson, Tim Linden, and Austin Hallock which launched  last Tuesday.

Here’s my link:

I know the words “traffic exchange” tend to scare people off but Sweeva is something totally different which is using what they are calling “social  browsing”.

The idea with Sweeva is that all active members are viewing the same pages at the same time.  They can then leave real-time comments about the site they are viewing.

I was actually a beta tester for the site but now that’s it has launched I can’t tell you how much cooler Sweeva is now that there are over 6600 people using it.

I think my favorite part of Sweeva is being present when my site is being shown…

When your bid is accepted at Sweeva you are told exactly what time your page will be shown on the system.  As soon as my site comes up I will post a message telling everybody that I am there and maybe give them a little extra incentive to sign-up at my site.  I can even interact with the people viewing my page to address any concerns they have about my site.

Here are some real-time stats and comments about some of the pages I am currently showing on Sweeva:


Pretty neat, huh?

In addition to just looking at websites there is a slew of ways to earn credits at
Sweeva and a whole leveling system that unlocks new features depending on how active you are.  This makes Sweeva a totally addictive experience.

The only thing on Sweeva I am not too crazy about is the “bidding” system.  The way it works is that Sweeva decides who’s site to show next based on how many credits each person has bid.  During the day when Sweeva is most active the bidding can get a little bit competitive.  For example, right now
there are about 35-40 people browsing Sweeva and I am bidding about 80 credits to get my site seen while some people are bidding 100-120 credits.  Those people aren’t getting any extra benefits for their credits other than having their site seen a little sooner than mine.

The bidding concept can be a little confusing for new members.  From inside the members area you can see real-time stats of how many people are viewing each webpage.  My advice is to bid twice as many credits and then adjust your bid depending on how long it takes to see your site. Bidding twice as much works out to about 2:1 ratio which is as good if not better than your
typical traffic exchange plus you get the added benefit of people who are actually looking at and commenting on your website.

Conversions are way better than other traffic exchanges.  Over the past week my two best splash pages have received 7,906 hits which have generated 94 click-thrus and 20 new sign ups.  Not too bad.

The Sweeva commissions are also really sweet. I’m earning an average of $3.18 for every member I refer to the site.  That’s way more than any traffic exchange I have ever promoted.

One thing I should point out is that if you are going to join you should really pay close attention to the “One Time Offer” you will see when you sign-up.  Almost all of my referrals who have upgraded skipped this offer and ended up paying the full price inside the site. Sweeva is the real deal!  It’s not something
you will use once and forget about.  If you can afford the upgrade when you join… grab it!

Ok, this is getting much longer than I had planned.  I’ll just end by saying that
Sweeva definitely gets a big thumbs up from me.  If you have tried other traffic exchanges and got poor results then I suggest going into Sweeva with an open mind.  Sweeva is truely like nothing else you have tried before and
needs to be experienced at least once.

Sweeva Arrives With Social Browsing

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Tuesday!

Woo-hoo, i’m excited today!

For the past two weeks I have beta testing a brand new traffic exchange that is like nothing anybody has seen before.  I’ve been DYING to tell someone about it and now that we’ve got all the bugs worked out and the site is ready to launch I finally can…

And here it is!


I know what you’re thinking…

Another new traffic exchange?  Whatever.

No.  This is something totally different.  Sweeva is introducing a unique new concept to the traffic exchange world that has never been done before.

You know how traffic exchanges typically work, right?

You generally sit at you computer for hours at a time mindlessly clicking for credits hoping that someone will notice your site.

Well, Sweeva is totally different.

Sweeva is using something called “social browsing”.  With Sweeva all active members are seeing the same site at the same time and to the right of the page there is an area for people to comment on the sites they are seeing.

What that means is that you can get real-time comments about your pages while you are surfing.

Why is that great?

First, being able to receive feedback from other users about your pages is a great way to find out what people like and what people don’t like.  This will help you to better understand which pages work best for you.

But even better, imagine being able to walk a new member through the  sign-up procedure of your site in real time.  You can even answer any  questions or concerns people have about your site from right there inside Sweeva while you are surfing.

Crazy, right?

Well, you gotta try it for yourself to see how cool this really is.
