Yet another blogging widget thingie to experiment with. BlogRush promises to increase traffic to your blog by syndicating your post links across a network of other sites that also display the same widget. This way, blogs of similar subject matter exchange links of the latest content and exchange traffic. Sounds like a good idea, and it is free, so I thought I’d give it a try. I figure It’s all in the name of science, and also the deeper reason: why not?
If everything worked out ok, your blog sidebar should now have a new widget that looks like the one here. Since this is new and “hot” at the moment, I foresee it spreading like wildfire at least for the immediate future. Many of the big names in blogging have been talking about this already with varying degrees of scepticism and/or hype, but at the end of the day, no one really knows how effective this thing will be BlogRush is a solid and viable idea for a above-board traffic exchange system. How it pans out over the coming months remains to be seen.
As far as I’m concerned, its a good enough concept to try out, so here it is on my blog. All in the name of science, of course. Try it out yourself see if the whole free website traffic claims work out for you. And, feel free to exchange notes about your results in the comments below.
