SEARCH FOR TRAFFIC:PART 1:ENTRECARD


When you first enter the blogging arena,you become aware of the most repeated question in the blogosphere, that is 'how to increase traffic to your blog?'.

When a question is repeatedly asked by bloggers, be it professional or amateur,be rest assured that there is no easy answer to it.After some months of blogging,a blogger usually searches and tries out several ways of increasing traffic to your blog.

I am not a master of this topic, i am just a amateur blogger like you,with a very stressful day-job.Therefore I'll be stating my take on increasing traffic to my original blog.

In my first month of blogging i joined the Entrecard.It is a sort of traffic exchange site,but there is a lot more to it.There is a social network component to it.It's a very inter-active blogger's network.We, the bloggers are the heart and soul of Entrecard.

Initially i used to drop the card and run,but gradually i came across so many fabulous blogs.There was a time i hardly had any idea about blogging.I remember one incident one blog directory refused my blog,i got very upset and called up one of my fellow Entrecarder.He helped me a lot regarding this aspect.Here, i take the opportunity to thank that friend Dede Andro-he is a great friend-perhaps he has helped many new bloggers like me.If possible , do visit his blogs dedeandro.blogspot.com,addyours.blogspot.com.

Yes,on one side entrecard is a traffic exchange,where you drop cards to other blogs,and get visitors in return.By dropping the cards you get credits.By the credits earned you can advertise your blog's banner in other blogs.in order to gain further traffic and exposure.

But,if you ask me,traffic is only a minor component of Entrecard.Other benefits are you get the first and a most important lesson-blogging is not easy.Take it from me,dropping cards after coming back from your job is a very exhausting task.Secondly you gain some lovely friends.Initially a newbie blogger fails to realize the importance of friends,but sooner you realize the better.

Last but not the least,the past problems in Entrecard[with the previous owner,i mean...the paid ads and all] revealed the strength and character of my fellow bloggers.A vast majority of bloggers spoke against the paid ad system,and stood up for drooping cards.

Personal note:In my opinion,Entrecard and it's blogging community is a must for any new blogger.You may ask,why i have not included this blog into Entrecard,the answer is it will not be possible for me to drop cards for my two blogs.
