Better Than BlogRush

With John Reese’s announcement that he’s closing down BlogRush yesterday, and Cody Moya recently redirecting his Link2Blogs site to one of his affiliate products, it looks like the only choice left for a decent traffic widget that is worth adding to your blog is the very same one that I tipped as the best back in March when I checked out all three traffic exchange blog widgets!

You can read the original testing results post I did here: -

Traffic Exchange Blog Widget

You can read more about why John has decided to close down BlogRush here: -

BlogRush

But the most important bit is if you haven’t already added the RealTrafficeXchange Widget from Jon Leger to your blog, then go get it done now: -

RealTrafficX.com

it’s been 7 months since my last post about blog traffic widgets and RealTrafficX is still getting me around 1% ctr across a range of blogs.

Now that may not sound like a lot, but as you can write the “ad” shown across the network for your blog, you can make sure that the people who do click through are going to be pretty well targeted, and therefore far more likely to convert.

You can also decide where (i.e. which page) to send those fresh new visitors to for the maximum effect, for instance a “squeeze” page to get the straight on your list…

NeverBlue CPA Ads

I mentioned sometime ago that I was going test out one or two CPA ad networks, including NeverBlue.

Unfortunately I kinda lost track of that test and only got around to re-visiting it in the last couple of weeks.

the good news is that it’s been a “minor” success…

just over 10 days ago I picked a couple of CPA offers from NeverBlue that looked suitable for a couple of my test blogs, one in the “Dating & Romance” niche and one in the “Autos” niche.

Here’s the stats for the last 10 days: -

NeverBlue CPA Ads

now here’s the important bit, the two blogs in question are both less than 3 months old and only have content being posted to them from the UniqueArticlesWizard.com plugin, so they’re “hands free” blogs for me.

I’ve done no linking for them, other than putting my list of RSS sites in (see the ping list here: – Best WP Ping List)

so they’ve basically gone from non money making, test blogs, to money making blogs after I took about 5 minutes to add a couple of banners to each one.

that income make not look huge, but it’s just from the last 10 days, so should be double that at least over a monthly period and that will add up to a nice bit of cash over a year…

and they’re also not getting much traffic yet, once I find the time to get some incoming links for them I’d expect the traffic to increase around 4-500% within 2-4 months, and the income from each should follow the same path.

So although it’s early days, I’m pretty pleased with the results and will be setting aside some time to add NeverBlue CPA ads to a whole bunch of my other test blogs ASAP! :)

On to bar number 18, The Retreat, and love the smokers area in here!
We managed another 3 pubs after this and then ended up in a curry house for a late supper.
Not a bad day all in all. :)
