Trying out BlogRush

Just like thousands of other bloggers I’m going to give BlogRush a try. This new widget was launched a few days ago and really took the Internet by storm, you can see it popping up everywhere.

So what’s the purpose of BlogRush? Well it aims to send your blog more traffic. By placing the code on your blog you gain credits as people visit your site and to reward you BlogRush will place links to your articles on other blogs that run the BlogRush widget. For instance, if you get 100 visitors a day your site will be featured 100 times on other blogs.

And by referring new people to the network you can get even more exposure. If people sign up under your referrer link you’ll get credits for every impression on their site too. So if you refer 5 people who each get 100 pageviews a day you will get a total exposure of 600 impressions a day.

This video has some more info on how it works:

You can try out BlogRush over here. It all sounds pretty nice but it will be interesting to see how much traffic this can really send to your blog as I don’t think the CTR will be really high.

I’m going to run this for a couple of days to see how it plays out.

  1. It never hurts to see how it’ll work out. You’ll probably want to try them out for a couple of weeks though as they are dealing with a huge backlog of sign-ups. My stats just started showing today.

  2. I’m giving BlogRush a run as well. First impressions are very positive although it still feels like a Beta version and isn’t quite polished…yet. It is like a pyramid scheme but without any of the pitfalls!
