BlogRush Phase 2 Out Soon?

I’ll be honest, I’m this close to throwing out the BlogRush widget on HTNet. Why? Frankly, I don’t think it delivers even 1% of what’s promised. It takes up valuable screen real estate but only gives me around 12 visitors.

I decided to check out my BlogRush dashboard, for what could be the last time; lo and behold, there’s an update! The update post has some teaser screenshots of the “new and improved” BlogRush dashboard. Mind you, those are just screenshots, so I’m not really putting my hopes up. But anything at all would be better than the terse text stats BlogRush members have been staring at for more than a week.

Let’s see if BlogRush delivers this time around… frankly, I’m running out of patience with this seemingly over-hyped service.

    I haven’t check my dashboard yet…dunno how many visitors only…and so more, just being a visitors…look a while and never come back…So, if no good traffic, consider BlogRush gone…

    Same thing here. I wanted to dump it but got the email from them on the updates. I read through their “new rules” about how they “force” us to place the widget high in the sidebar. I know it is only fair that every places it high in the sidebar to maximize the exposure but considering the amount of traffic you get from it, I don’t think it is worth it at all.

    Honestly I doubt any “upgrade” of this service will provide any significant impact for participants.

    I’m just waiting to see what changes they’ve made to the backend in terms of stats reporting. That would probably be the most useful thing for me as a participating web site owner.

    Although in reality, I doubt that any changes that they make could even remotely improve the abhorrently poor click-through rate.

    I’m just being an optimist and giving them the benefit of the doubt.

    I’ve dumped BlogRush.

    If it doesn’t gain you significant additional audience, you probably should too.
