I joined HungryForHits a month ago, not really expecting much more than your average, run of the mill, traffic exchange. One month later and I am the biggest fan. The whole site is packed with uniqueness and character!
The traffic flows smoothly, the surf bar is clean and easy to use, the free tools more than adequate for a traffic exchange and the events and competitions interesting and rewarding. There is a chat bar that's always active, offering plenty of opportunities for branding and networking. Klara, the owner, is always at hand at the chat bar, helping and supporting in a warm friendly manner.
The program is relatively new, about a year old, offering plenty of opportunities for promoting.
There are currently about 4100 members, but due to all the above, most of them are active and highly involved!
My only complaint are the mouth watering food icons at the surf bar, that they keep sending me to my refrigerator! :)
It's now almost two months that I am using and promoting HungryForHits on a daily basis and I have come to the conclusion, that the single most unique feature of this traffic exchange is the sense of community that offers, through the chat bar, to its members. Having a chat bar at the surfing area is not something new, but having such a busy and cosmopolitan one is another story. People from different countries and background, of all ages, and with various degrees of experience and expertise are chatting, joking, creating relationships and most importantly, sharing their knowledge! To me, that's something beyond value!
A special mention must also go to the big work that went into the creation of an excellent blog that is there for guiding new users.
