There are many ways to generate traffic on your blog. Some people recommend becoming part of link exchanges. Others recommend submitting your website to a directory. Still others say “good content promotes itself.”
I believe that traffic can be generated from a variety of venues. In my opinion, good content keeps your visitors coming back (and brings in search engine visitors), but the first time visitor might also come by other means.
Lately, there have been many “surf the blogosphere” type sites coming out. Most of these take you to a new site each time you click a button or a link. Some of these allow you to define the type of website that it will show you.
Anyway, one such site is “Blogmad.” It allows a person to accumulate credits while surfing other member blogs. Those credits pay for traffic that gets sent to your site. It is pretty cool how it works. I have discovered a lot of great blogs by using systems such as this.
The Ryan’s Universe blog has a story about a new type of website promotion. He explains that the creators of Blogmad have recently announced a new website. It is called exLinks. According to their website:
EXLINKS IS THE ULTIMATE, EXPONENTIAL, LINK-SWAPPING, SITE EXPLODING SYSTEM, AND IT’S COMPLETELY FREE.
SIGNING UP NOW WILL GUARANTEE YOU A SPOT IN THE BETA, UPDATES THROUGH THE NEWS LETTER, AND A FEW EXTRA BENEFITS.
So, it is not incredibly descriptive, but since it is created by the makers of an already reputable site, I figured I could sign up.
