Entrecard: Drop Yours

I recently found a new site that can help increase traffic to your blog. The way it works is you create a little "calling card" for your blog and place a widget onto your blog that will show other sites "calling cards". You go to as many blogs as possible and Drop your card onto the widget. Then the blog owner will approve (or decline) on whether your blog's card will be shown on their widget. So it's kinda like free advertising.

Cons: Most traffic is "junk traffic"...meaning most people just stop by to drop their cards and leave. (but even though most is junk, some people actually DO read your blog and comment...I know I try to do that when dropping my card)

Pros: You site gets free advertising and you can "buy" contest tickets and other kool things with your entrecard credits earned from dropping cards.

My card widget is on the right side under 'Get More Traffic' section if you want to check it out.

I just now found the comments you left on my blog. Thank you so much! I joined clickthru. Can you make sure that I joined under you? I clicked your link but I never saw where it said you were my referrer. I really like it. And I do plan to work on my referrals. The sites where I have referrals are making money much faster. Thanks again! Email me any time! rene71@gmail.com

i think that, in the case of entrecard, the cons might outweigh the pros. you're right...mostly junk traffic...pass through-ers. and, i think that most of us are looking for regular readers...especially with the type of blogs that we have...mommy, family etc...but, when you want to pick up advertisers...they only look at how many hits/day, i guess. so, i suppose that the junk traffic is worth something?
