Almost every day I get an email from another blogger or website owner asking me if I will add their link to my blog roll, if I like their site and think that the content matches mine, I usually request a link on their site in exchange. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a pretty normal operating procedure for bloggers. It can be time consuming, but we all continue to do it pretty regularly. So whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the problem with this? Simple Ã¢â‚¬â€œ unless you keep constant track of the sites that your link is supposed to be on and check them regularly, there is no way to tell if your link stays on their site. Sure you may see the site listed as a traffic source within Google Analytics, but that may only be a couple visitors and then it disappears.
23blogs.com hopes to change that! When you register for their FREE program and add your blog, you will have an html code to add to your blogÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sidebar for their widget. Their widget will then display your referral link and then 10 different links to other blogs Ã¢â‚¬â€œ as shown in the image to the right.
Here is the description from their website:
When you register(sign up) and add a blog, you will get a HTML CODE. This code will display 10 other different blogs titles on your blog and you will earn 10x impressions after you put those HTML CODE on your blog. Also , you will get 1:1 click exchange, That’s meaning when your visitors click the ad box on your blog , you will credit 1 click and the system will PAY back 1 click to you.
And now, by using our exchange system, you’ll never worry about the problem again.
