A couple of years ago when blogs were blowing up like fireworks on the 4th of July blog traffic exchanges poped up as well. They were a great way to get no cost traffic to any blog and they would also create some loyal readers if your blog had good content.
Many blog marketers have since moved on and found different ways of driving traffic to their blogs, some have even abandoned the traditional blog for the micro blogging platforms of Twitter and FaceBook.
Being a click thru marketer I truly enjoy traffic exchanges of many types and yes I was still surfing on blog exchanges until very recently however it appears that they are going the way of the dinosour so to speak and here’s why. One of my favorite blog exchanges “Blog Soldiers” is no longer online, I had a good sized downline that was active, a sizeable credit surplus and yes I was even owed comissions however it appears that the owner just pulled the plug without notification – that was quite irresponsible and not a best business practice that I recomend for other marketing professionals.
Then two days ago I got a message from “Blog Explosion” that they denied this blog because it had to much of a marketing theme. No crap, it’s a Professional Marketing blog. I immediately canceled my account and do not recomend their service to anyone any longer.
So what’s a blog surfer to do? Here is what I recomend, come on over to www.GoneClicking.com and add all the blogs you want, especially marketing blogs! I am telling you, there is nothing like a good old fashioned traffic exchange to get some traffic and readers to your blog.
I know that social media is all the rage these days but I still like click thru marketing and traffic exchanges so:
“Long Live the Click!”
Always to your success,
