Back On Line

Hit Bandit is back in the air again!

My sincerest apologies for all the problems the past few days. We have very unexpectedly had to move servers.

We are now finally back up and running (although as yet the URL shortener/tracker - myus.ws - does not work: still investigating why).

Unclaimed doublers and treblers from October 23 and 24 can still be claimed today and tomorrow, so you have not lost them.

The Raid at Alarming Hits has been extended for another week, so will now end on November 2nd.

The Raid at Speed Of Light Hits has been delayed by a week.

If you spot something that is not working, apart from myus.ws, please send a support ticket.

[Editor's note: all functions are working correctly now]

Website Problems

Hit Bandit is currently out of the air due to hosting server problems. We are now moving to a new server - hopefully this move will soon be complete and we will be up and running very quickly.

Thank you all for your patience.

Timer Down, Bonus Up

This week, until end-of-day Friday, the surf timer will be reduced by 3 seconds. For free members this means a 9-second timer, for Diamond members this means 3 seconds, and other upgrades are somewhere inbetween.

On the last day of the timer reduction, the surfing bonus will be doubled. Your surfing bonus is determined by how much you have surfed in the few days before. So to get full benefit from the doubled bonus you will need to surf lots on Wednesday and/or Thursday. You can always see what your surfing bonus is today, and what it will be tomorrow, on the member's home page.

Make sure you surf plenty this week so that you have a bonus to double - it would be a crying shame to have a bonus of 0% on Friday!

Square Banners On The Prize Page

We are all familiar with the standard wide banner with format 468x60. But nowadays many affiliate programs, traffic exchanges, and safelists offer square banners for you to advertise wherever you can. This is the format 125x125 which is becoming increasingly popular.

The prize page at Hit Bandit now displays 2 square banners.

You can add square banners to advertise your affiliate programs on the banners page. Make sure you select format "square", or they will not show properly. They use the same banner impressions as for regular wide banners on the surfbar. You can also add geo-targetting to square banners in the same way as for regular wide banners, and upgraded members can regulate the number of shows per hour.

The prize page is a page that surfers watch for, so you can be sure that your square banners will be seen!

Saturday, June 1, 2013

More info on new referrals

When you refer a new member to Hit Bandit, you will now receive two emails: one upon signup, which will include the campaign info that this signup came from, and one upon activation, informing you that your cash and credit bonuses have been added.

Currently, when a new referral activates their account, you get $0.10 cash plus 50 credits.

Improvements to assign function

At Hit Bandit, we are continually looking for ways to improve our services.

Now, assignment of credits has gotten easier! If you have two or more sites that are in rotation, you can now spread credits evenly amongst them with one click of a button. The same applies for banners and text ads.

Surfing Check Changes

The Surfing Check has been altered to make it more difficult for would-be cheaters.

For all of you honest surfers, it is actually become easier: there is now a choice out of 4 instead of 6 possibilities. But by using images instead of text, it has become a lot more difficult for cheaters. There are some other security changes as well, but they will remain secret!

I'll be the first to admit that there are frequently people trying to cheat at Hit Bandit, but due to all the security measures, they don't get very far. If you google "traffic exchange surfing bots" you will find a myriad of programs that are designed to cheat various traffic exchanges, some of them even claim to be usable at over 100 exchanges. But none of them claim to be able to cheat Hit Bandit - and they cannot!

Some estimates put as much as 70% of the traffic at many "manual" traffic exchanges as being done by bots - and so "auto-surf" with no real people seeing the pages - this is not what you expect from a manual traffic exchange! And this is WHY we at Hit Bandit take a great deal of trouble to ensure you get the best quality traffic!

We make sure your traffic is truly real.

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Banners and Activty

When you submit a benner at Hit Bandit, that banner is only shown on the surfbar, never on the member's pages. The banners you see on the member's pages that automatically refresh are from various banner exchanges that I use to advertise Hit Bandit on. These and some other ad sources ensure a continual stream of new members at Hit Bandit for you to advertise to.

Some of the new members are allocated at random to various Diamond Members, others (when they have proven to be active) are offered for purchase on the purchase page. Inactive members get their accounts deleted after several months of inactivity. When you see Traffic Exchanges advertising that they have 26,000 or 54,000 or even more members, you can be sure that inactive members are NEVER removed, and that around 95% - 98% of the members never, ever login. A Traffic Exchange with 26000 active members would be far bigger than Easy Hits 4 U (and that's by far the biggest!).

Active TE's can quickly be found on the list of Get Easy Hits, where Hit Bandit is also in the top 20.

Thank you Google!


My main PC crashed the other day, and Windows had to be re-installed. Although I have deliberately preserved backups of (most) important stuff, I thought it would be a bind to get everything set up and working efficiently once more, especially the favorites list and the user names and passwords of the hundreds of sites of which I am a member.

To my great delight and surprise, Google came to the rescue. It seems that their Chrome browser, the main browser I use, has a built-in recovery feature, which I wasn't even aware of!

By logging into my gmail account, all of my favorites and saved passwords were quickly restored, and I was up and running again in no time.

I really can't praise Google enough for this tremendous feat of super user-friendliness! Although Google has grown into a giant company, they still care for their users!

Cheaters never seem to give up and go home.


cheat free zone
Any traffic generating program gets its share of cheaters, and Hit Bandit is unfortunately no exception.

A simple discrepancy in stats a few days ago led to the implementation of an extra check, which has since exposed a number of cheaters who have now been banned. These cheaters are responsible for about 2%-3% of site views for the past few days. To sort of make this up to you, the ad in the next newsletter is worth 30 credits instead of the normal 10.

Although many of the cheaters are from China, I do not intend to ban members from China like many TE's do. China is a large country with a lot of people! And we have many honest and hard-working members from China. Furthermore, there are plenty of would-be cheaters from other countries, most notably USA and France!

We will continue to enhance and implement new anti-cheat measures to ensure you get the best quality traffic!

Payza Options Improved

I am pleased to report that Payza have finally got their act together, and are now able to accept bank transfers from many different banks. This means that payout via Payza will get a lot easier.

Until now, payout via Payza at Hit Bandit has been seriously hampered since the funding has only been possible when members purchase via Payza, and since Payza was not that popular for payment, there have been long stretches when payout by Payza was not possible. Now that funding has been made independent of that cashflow, Payza will more often be available for payout at Hit Bandit.

According to info from Payza, the transaction fees have been waived for these sorts of payments - you will only pay costs when you withdraw the cash from Payza. So that is an added benefit.

With these improvements, Payza is becoming a seriously viable alternative to PayPal.

Saturday, February 2, 2013

Viewing Statistics

Yesterday, February 1, there were 27416 sites viewed at Hit Bandit - this is fairly typical for a Friday. Mondays and Thursdays get the most surfing due to the 20% extra surfing bonus - without the bonus these were always the weakest surf days and that is why the extra bonus is available on those two days.

Upgraded members are getting maximum around 250* hits per day to their sites, free members around 120* hits per day - if they have enough credits assigned. The difference is due to the priority that upgraded members get when showing sites. For example, if someone surfs 150 sites on one day they will see all of the upgraded members' sites, but only about half of the free members' sites.

Furthermore, free members who don't login for several days will get a lower priority on their sites (if they still have credits assigned) until they log back in. So for best results, upgrade, and if you can't afford an upgrade, login at least twice a week!


*Figures apply to non geo-targetted sites, geo-targetted sites will get less hits.

Surfs Up!!!

Total surfing is up at Hit Bandit, and the number of websites in rotation has gone down. These two factors mean you are getting many more hits to your websites every day, and more traffic means more signups for you.

There has been a lot of chatter about cheaters being caught at various other Traffic Exchanges recently. Many of these cheaters were banned from Hit Bandit a long time ago, and various measures have been taken to prevent the cheating that they do, including a sharpening of the "Suspicious User Mechanism" that keeps track of abnormal behaviour by members - too much abnormal behaviour and the member's account gets blocked.

In recent months just a few new accounts have been blocked by this mechanism. On the assumption that these people are just "testing the waters" I unblocked each of these accounts, and none of them have turned into repeat offenders.

So not only are you getting more traffic, you are getting cleaner traffic.
