Genrating quality free traffic is one of the most difficult things to do when you're a blogger. You could choose to pay for your traffic or you could generate free traffic without paying a dime. I read some good reviews about Blogexplosion. So, I decided to sign up immediately, and see if my traffic would go up. I'm still testing Blogexplosion, and I'm pretty amazed how easy it is to receive traffic.

Before you can get traffic you first need to 'work'(if you call surfing work) a little bit. Blogexplosion is based on a credit system. The main way for earning credits is to visit other blogs from Blogexplosion members. Like StumbleUpon you can choose the types of blogs you want to visit. When you start surfing with BlogExplosion you have to stay a minimum of 30 seconds on that blog, before you can earn any credits. After you've waited 30 seconds you can go own to the next blog by clicking on a number in the upper left corner. Fortunately, there is a less time consuming way to earn credits. Namely by referring other users to BlogExplosion, each time you refer someone you get up to 15% of that persons traffic for life. There's also a Blogdirectory which you can use to promote your blog.

You can add several different blogs to your Blogexplosion account to maximize your traffic. There's also a possibility to exchange credits between your own blogs. I think 1 assigned credit = 2 visitors, correct me if I'm wrong. You could also create your own banner, this banner will then be displayed 36(impressions) times for 1 credit (1= 36) on other blogs. I would like to add that Blogexplosion is not only good way for getting traffic, but it's also a large community of bloggers, where you can make friends or chat.

    We agree! We're big on BlogExplosion, too, since it is very simple to set up, and very effective. I found you via BlogCatalog (and your trip to our buyfrombloggers blog). The tough part was choosing which blog of yours I wanted to explore this morning!

    I also applaud your efforts to encourage people to comment! Nothing sparks up a bloggers day like activity on a post :)

    True. I agree with your suggestion of carrying out the basic practices while blogging. But sometimes, these suggestions are limited to blogs and not for the whole internet marketing. I read your post, and open a blog where I used to present some articles regarding the advancements in the medicine, new research going on the field, and other relevant topics. It works fine to gain a continuous attention from the patients. But the same didn’t work much for the website that I created for my clinic. I was eventually required to hire an SEO company. Hiring someone to optimize your website would be a really good idea if you have a new website and/or business venture. Using the services of an experienced Offshore SEO company will give you exactly the results you need. SEO companies are trained to generate a steady continuous flow of quality traffic in order to achieve more revenue for your business. This is one of those factors that many of the people are ignorant of. I am a physicist, and run my own clinic. Marketing was a part that generally doctors are unaware of. I made one website which I though would help me ameliorate my business, but it doesn’t make a great difference as it was far not found on search engines. Then, I came across a website designing and marketing company named as Medical Web Experts (, with which I had a contract for advertising and optimizing my website to make it Google-friendly. The main problem with my website was found to be improper website coding, which resisted my website to be listed in top most search. The company did well in reconstructing my website, making it popular using SEO techniques. The benefits are slowly coming into action. Website helped me getting a good sum of patients at my doorstep. Web marketing really helped my business work, making my investments in SEO worthy.
