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….
