Without targeted traffic, your blog is nothing. After all, you're writing for a readership - and without the readership, why write at all?
But delivering traffic to your blog can be time consuming. There are a variety of techniques that you can use (I'll cover these in a later post), but a new one that has just been released makes life easy.
It's called BlogRush and it works like this:
- you sign up for free
- you put a widget on your blog
- every time a page on your blog is displayed, you earn a credit
- for each credit you earn, your blog's content is syndicated across other blogs using BlogRush
The content delivered in the widget is targeted to your blog - so your readership benefits. And by categorising your own blog within BlogRush, your posts appear on similarly targeted blogs, thereby gaining click-thrus from readers of those blogs.
And there's a bonus: for every person who you refer to BlogRush, you earn credits on their credits...and when they refer people you earn credits on those credits too, 10 levels deep.
It sounds like a great way to generate targeted traffic. Try it out here.
