Traffic exchanges including stats

What is traffic exchange
Generally, this is a program where you surf other people's sites in return for other people surfing your site. You can generate a lot of visitors with these programs, but the question is whether these visitors are really interested in your web page or they just want free hits to their site.

How traffic exchange works
A traffic exchange website receives website submissions from webmasters that join traffic exchange networks. The person who submitted the website then has to browse other member sites on the exchange program to earn credits, which enable their sites to be viewed by other members through the surf system. This increases the number of visitors to all the sites involved.
Exchanges enforce a certain credit ratio, which illustrates the amount of websites the surfer must view in order to receive one hit through the program for their promoted website. Many sites offer the ability to upgrade one's membership level for a more equal credit ratio.
As the viewers are all website owners or affiliates, it is possible that some might find certain member sites interesting and thus make note of them on their own sites, sending more traffic their way. Most traffic programs also impose a time limit when members are browsing, ranging from 10 seconds to 60 seconds.
Almost all traffic exchange programs are free, although many of them offer special features to paid members and offer credits for purchase. Almost all traffic exchange programs encourage users to build their own referral networks, which in turn increases the referrers' amount of credits.
The traffic generated in a traffic exchange can be leveraged by using a downline builder to assist the user in building a referral network in the many different traffic exchanges.
In practice, traffic exchange programs are generally used by small business owners or marketers who either want free advertising or use the exchange programs for low-budget advertisement campaigns.
My personal experience with traffic exchanges.
To test a traffic exchange performance over 2 month period. I have signed up with multiple traffic exchanges and link exchanges programs just to see which once produce results and which ones don’t. I have been keeping a track of views and signups up from each program over the 2 month period.  Results below:
Views --- number of unique visitors
Signups --- number of people joined
Referral Url --- source url of the visitor
% Success --- the percentage of people sing up
