UPDATE: Promotion

Filed under: message to the readers — Eitan @ 8:48 pm

About a week ago I started two methods of promoting this site.

The first was Entrecard which links up bloggers and lets us run ads on each other’s sites.  This has worked out really well.  I’ve had lots of amazing traffic from Entrecard.  It’s going to stay.

The other is with Blogrush.  This one puts links to my stories in a box on the side of other blogs and does the same for other blogs on mine.  This system has been uninstalled.  Why?   Well, no one was clicking on my stories.  Maybe if I had really shocking titles of my entries I’d get more traffic.  But according to Blogrush my titles showed up other blogs over 14,000 times.  And I didn’t get a single click.  That’s insane.

So I still recommend Entrecard, not so much Blogrush if you’re looking to promote.

  1. I agree with you on Entrecard – I just signed up with them a few days ago and am already noticing a significant increase in traffic. It has also had some interesting secondary effects on increasing visits through other community-based portals such as BlogCatalog. I’ve had a lot more people adding me to their friends lists, and one person even left a positive review on my profile page. Occasionally the “card droppers” will even leave a comment or two on my posts if they see something interesting, which is good because it adds to the content of the page.

    I never got involved with BlogRush; most of the other posts I have read on them seem to indicate that there is some type of scamming or corruption going on with them. I don’t know if this is really true or not, but if they are not helping our blogs anyway, then there doesn’t seem to be much incentive to clutter up our sidebars with yet another widget.
