Another Great Way to Get Hits to Your Blog!


When I first began this Blog two years ago, I would get only four or five visitors per day. I was frustrated because I wanted to share book writing tips with others and I didn’t know how. I had befriended a wonderful person online who I shared my frustration with and she told me about Entrecard. Entrecard is a free service where all I had to do was add a link to my site (see link to the right) and other related, as well as some unrelated Bloggers, click on to my Blog to earn credits towards their own advertisements on other sites. It’s all free and increased my hits to over 50 per day! Now my site is highly ranked by the search engines and I get new visitors every day.

Entrecard has been a terrific asset to my Blog and has really helped me grow. I suggest if you have a Blog or Website, try it and see if your visitor count doesn’t increase substantially. If not, you can easily remove the link (but I think you’ll be surprised!). Click on to Entrecard!

I'm still sitting on the fence about these. I guess the extra hits raise your profile and maybe help you get more relevant hits later, but I'm still not sure. I'd be interested to know how it goes in the long term.

I use EC on all my blogs now. I found some great new followers this way. :)

Hi Carol, I've only just joined so waiting for approval! :0)

I used Entrecard when I first started blogging and it did bring visitors but only to click the EC widget. Your aim as a blogger is to have regular readers who stay and are loyal followers. EC doesn't do that for bloggers. You'll see after a few months to a year, once you've established readers, you will no longer need EC.

I like EC because even though some may just click and move along, they are still visiting your blog and may stick around if something catches their eye. Also, I have picked up many loyal readers through Entrecard and there are always new bloggers joining. There are so many categories that it is a great way to target other blogs who may find my posts of interest. I have posted about this on all my blogs too! Although I don't sit for hours just doing drops, I like when I see the drop card on blogs I do visit and would love to advertise mine on the many new blogs I have found that are not members . . . yet.

Here's the link to the post I did on our book:

Hi, Carol,

Thanks for the tips. I'll have to try this. We've increased traffic quite a bit at one of my sites through regular media releases every week. Have you tried that? It works.
