Is EntreCard Really Worth It??

Hi all…

For the last few weeks, I’ve been attempting to do the EntreCard dance every day… Dropping at least 100 cards, sometimes more than 200 if time allowed, and my traffic has grown considerably. I’m getting about as much traffic as cards I drop in a day. It’s averaging about 100 pageviews a day at any rate.

That said, the process of dropping every day is very time consuming. Yes, I’ve come across some great blogs and sites in that time of dropping all these EntreCard cards, but still… Is it quality traffic or just people flying by to drop cards on my site to get their own stats up?

Take a Smort from Smorty!

Hey all…

I’m still experimenting with various review tools to raise the awareness of this blog and make some money. I’ve seen Smorty ads just about everywhere on the internet and decided to give them a try.

Smorty

So if you’ve seen the Smorty ads, you know a few things already… It’s a get-paid-for-reviews kind of system that helps drive ads and revenue back to your site.

Smorty connects advertisers with bloggers. Advertisers, just like in some of the other review-related sites, pay bloggers to write opinions about their sites or products and provide links back to the advertiser’s site. Basically we bloggers do what we do best, which is write blog posts, and we get paid for blogging. What more could you ask for?

Once you sign up and get your blog(s) approved, you get a list of opportunities to write about. After you accept and write a post, you get paid for it via a PayPal account. The more blogs and opinions you write about advertisers on them, the more money you can make. Easy enough, right?

So we’ll see how this works. Check out Smorty for details if you haven’t already! Blog for money at Smorty!

EntreCard and Driving Traffic

Hi all…

EntreCard

I’ve been trying out EntreCard for the last few days on my other site — Lair of the Green Knight — and I have to admit that my traffic has increased. And I’ve had a few additional comments from some of those who have stopped by. The comments were via the EntreCard site, but it’s still something…

Izea Ranks - chart for Lair of the Green Knight over last 7 days

You can see the rise in my RealRank over the last 7 days because my visitors and page views have risen as a result of spending some time with EntreCard. We’ll see if the trend continues, but if nothing else it’s expanding my community of bloggers. I’ve talked to a number of folks via e-mail for blogs that I probably wouldn’t have found except through EntreCard.

So we’ll take the good with the bad for now. It certainly can’t hurt.

How have other folks done with the EntreCard system? Has it helped or hurt? Let me know!
