The more observant amongst you will have noticed that I’ve installed a widget in my sidebar. It’s for BlogRush, a brand new service from Internet marketing genius John Reese and it could potentially drive thousands of new readers to your blog.
Now I’ve said previously that I’m against widgets in general as they tend to add little or no value to your site but with BlogRush, I’m prepared to make an exception. The reason being that with BlogRush you can select what sort of content is displayed in the widget so that the articles displayed are relevant to your own content. In addition, and this is the really important factor that swayed me, your syndicated content will be displayed on other blogs which relate to your niche or content so people are more likely to click on the link to visit your site.
How can you use this widget to get more traffic to your blog?
Simple. For every page view on your own blog, you generate 1 credit which equates to a link in the widget so if you get 100 page views a day, your link is displayed on the network 100 times. Now if someone joins BlogRush through your referring link, they become part of your referral network. For every one of their page views, you receive a further credit so if they get 200 page views a day, you get 100+200 credits. All of this is explained in the video on BlogRush itself but essentially you could generate thousands of credits which could convert into traffic to your site.
Reasons for signing up
Firstly it’s free and you can pull the widget at any time. Secondly John Reese is behind the project and he’s regarded by many people as one of the top Internet marketers on the planet so you can be assured that this is likely to be a success. Thirdly the earlier you sign up to the service, the more likely you are to build a substantial referral network and enjoy the extra blog traffic this can generate.
I’m going to keep an eye on how much traffic the widget generates and keep you posted but in the meanwhile why don’t you sign up and try it for yourself?
