Visibility is Key for your business. Search engine visibility brings more visitors and more revenue.

SEO & New Traffic Generation Tool for Bloggers

Every once in awhile a new tool emerges intended to increase visibility and traffic. I’ve discovered a tool that may help bring privacy to more bloggers and those involved in building the technologies of the web.

It’s called BlogRush and works on the principle of the old banner exchange model – but this one operates with an embeddable widget. The more times you display the BlogRush widget, the more “credits” you get for your posts being displayed within the widgets of other members of the BlogRush Network. The concept is extended beyond simple one-to-one numbers as those who get their widgets from you, then expose your widget to their own audience and you gain more credits for display of your post headlines across the network on all bloggers using the widget. It seems like the model will overextend itself at some point unless growth is phenomenal and sustained over time.

Nevertheless, I’m happy to try it out and see if the model works for extending the SEO conversation through the world of influential bloggers. Take the BlogRush widget you see to the right on this blog and see how it works for you to increase the visibility of your most important topic. If your topic involves SEO at all – try out our SEO Guru Search Engine which draws ONLY from authoritative SEO sources via the Google Custom Search Engine and if you like that one, try out the SEO Job Search Engine.

    So you’ve been using this 2 days…any feedback for us yet. Seems neat but for some reason I’m wary….

    Sure do, I got a note yesterday in which BlogRush admits to rampant abuse by spammers within the first days via bots and cheating. So they claim that they’ll address it and refuse to allow it – moving to manual review of every account “No matter how many people we have to hire.” So … since they are being candid and transparent, I’m going to continue testing and see where it goes. I’ll follow up with a post once I decide whether to continue using BlogRush.

    Hey Mike,

    I wanted to follow up and see what you thought about BlogRush. I don’t get a ton of traffic, but a considerable amount to my blog ( and despite having nearly a 100,000 impressions last month, I only got 1 page view from BlogRush. I’m using BlogUpp and have had a little bit more success? Would love to hear your thoughts on BlogRush now that you’ve been using it for a while because I was really disappointed.
