Advertise Your Blog Using BlogRush

  Play this post
Logo-2"The Fastest And Easiest Way To Instantly Drive A Flood Of Targeted Readers To Your Blog... Absolutely Free!" That's the bold claim BlogRush makes in the website. With the multilevel referral scheme, it might come quite close to delivering on the promise. since no money is involved, it isn't one of those (illegal) pyramid schemes but the benefits are still on similar lines.

When you place the BlogRush widget on your blog, it shows relevant posts from other bloggers next to your posts. Every time your page loads, you get one credit to show your blog on other blogger pages. Neat eh? Moreover, when you refer someone and their page loads, you still get a credit. That's also the reason why all the BlogRush links in this post are referral links...

In their own words,

BlogRush is a "Cooperative Syndication Network" that rewards its users for their contributions to the network -- from the impressions they provide of the BlogRush Widget to the referral of other users through 10 'generations' of activity and the impressions of the widget that they provide. BlogRush was designed to be incredibly viral and to provide its users with tremendous distribution leverage to receive exposure for their blog content (onto related content blogs) that they could never achieve on their own; at least without a massive advertising budget.
There you have it - the best (so far) way to promote your blog for free. We already know the advantage of a targeted readership - people interested in what you are writing are more likely to stick around your blog and this will directly affect the revenue you generate from your efforts.

So go ahead, use one of the referral links in this post (or visit directly) to get code for your widget and start reaping the benefits of targeted readers.

Update:Just got a mail from BlogRush explaining the 'The Syndication Credit System Formula' (the formula used to derive your credits). Here it is:

Your Traffic = 1:1
1st Generation Of Referrals (Directly From You) = 1:1
2nd Generation Of Referrals (i.e. Jen in the video) = 1:1
3rd - 6th Generation Of Referrals = 1:4
7th - 10th Generation Of Referrals = 1:8

1:1 means you earn 1 syndication credit for every 1 impression of the
widget by your own traffic or by any users located on the 1st (direct)
or 2nd generations.
1:4 means you earn 1 syndication credit for every 4 impressions of the
widget by any user located on the 3rd to 6th generations.
1:8 means you earn 1 syndication credit for every 8 impressions of the
widget by any user located on the 7th to 10th generations.
Hopefully this clarifies your doubts on how the service works. In case you are wondering how BlogRush plan to monetize their service, I got that answer in the mail too - Soon you will be able to BUY Credits!

    I have the blogrush widget on my blogsite and its traffic coming from it is considerable good.
    I added it two days ago, and it gives me more unique viewer just like signing up for google adword. I love it because its free. And it really works!
