Entrecard Review: How a Small Gaming Blog Attracts Its First Traffic

Entrecard Review: How a Small Gaming Blog Attracts Its First TrafficSince this blog is really a fresh start (you can check the archives page to see), the first my problem besides writing something interesting for a reader (and constantly checking my spelling), is to let this reader know i exist at all – which is, actually, much harder. So, I’ve been looking at the usual blogger’s stuff like blogging directories (they suck!), RSS aggregation, social networks (they rule!) and I’ve stumbled upon an unusual network service for bloggers: Entrecard. The main idea is that everyone set up an Entrecard widget on their blog and click each other’s widgets to make Drops, which in turn we can spend on buying ads in someone’s blog – and the whole point of this is rather finding interesting blogs than getting more Drops. And i must say i found a few interesting gaming blogs doing that (now i hope, someone finds mine in the same fashion :)

There are several pro’s and con’s to this system i see after using it for a few days:

- You may get a lot of random, untargeted traffic.
Many people just go through all the widgets they see, clicking them for Drops and not caring what is this blog about – means, these visitors won’t stay to read, but they’ll still show on my statistics.

+ Some of these people still can stay if they get suddenly interested.
I found a few blogs I’d like to keep reading while i didn’t exactly searched for them.

- Some sites remove their widgets and when you give Drops to get an ad on them, you get nothing. You’re supposed to be checking every blog out there, but still this is a cheating.

+ You get full stats on who came to your blog, when and from where. So can visit their blog in return to check if it’s anything interesting to you.

- You can’t usually tell if a blog that has a middle-sized price for ad really get visited that much. Because the price is calculated basing on other things than amount of visitors – so you can put an ad there but no one will see it.

+ There are all kinds of blog categories and prices for everyone. I’m not eager to farm Drops for ads, so I’ll stick for middle-priced ads and see what can i get of it.
