I think that this is a widget worth exploring. I hope that all bloggers in the afrosphere will give it a try. This Blog Rush widget attempts to promote your blog on other relevant blogs. Basically, this is a little widget that you put on your sidebar that displays posts others have written on their blogs (related to your blog’s content). Each time the widget displays you earn a ‘credit’ which means that a recent headline from your own blog will be displayed on someone else’s blog. If your blog gets 69 page views a day your headline will be displayed 69 times on other people’s blogs.
Not only that - they have a referral system so that if another blogger signs up to Blog Rush after clicking through to it from your widget you’ll get credits each time that the referral blog shows the widget. The referral system goes 10 tiers deep - so you can potentially get ALOT of credits.
I guess this is the time to remind you that there is no money changing hands. Blog Rush is free to participate in and you can opt out at any point. Here are some cool features that are worth noting as you decide what to do:
- Attempt at Relevancy - they show headlines on your blog that are relevant to your content.
- Filters - you can filter out any keyword that you want and any URL that you don’t want to display on your blog.
- Multiple Blogs - you can split the spread of your credits among multiple blogs (ie if you have two blogs you can enroll with both). I added it to my other blog as well.
