Is Entrecard’s Paid Ads good?

>> “Advertise across the entire Entrecard network for $.02 per click, or $.30 CPM”
I know that Graham has to find a way to earn money to maintain entrecard site.
Entrecard gets paid (real money) by the paid ads.But we are not paid ‘directly’ by running the paid ads. Instead Entrecard will buy EC credits from you , and in that way it pays you indirectly. I really do not like it. He should do like google do. Publisher should be paid by real money not EC (We can not exchange EC to real money). We also have the site to maintain. We also need money like he need. So why he used our website to earn money without pay us? We also dropped card, link to EC site, make the site has good pagerank, SEO entrecard for free. He should think about entrecard community.
1. I suggest he should allow us exchange EC credit to real money.
2. Give us $0.01 per click and he keep the remaining.
It will be fair.

Long time not drop entrecard

Hi everybody,

Because i am very busy in this month and previous month, i do not have time to drop cards. Sorry for do not drop back. And i am very appreciate to anyone drop on my card in this time. And in this time, i will analyze statistic when i do not drop any entrecard.

+ Traffic: My traffic decrease 10 times if i do not use entrecard. (referral) 36.59%
(direct) ((none)) 30.91% (referral) 18.71% (referral) 10.54%
google (organic) 0.95%

Note: My traffic is totally from entrecard because i want to find the best way entrecard can help us to increase traffic.

As we can see that, 30% traffic is direct traffic. It means that 30% of entrecard people has their own list and drop in this list. ==> If you are in those lists, you will have the loyal visitor.

55% from entrecard, so it means that entrecard newbie will let entrecard system find sites to drop. To get those traffic, you only have one way: drop as much as posible to have the high rank.

10% from others site, to get those traffic, you have to had the good relationship with other blogger. To do this, just comments on their blogs and give your ideas, make friends...

1% from google: only for my site, because i only use entrecard as SEO tools. Other sites should focus on SEO using google search.

My Entrecard Experience

Hi. I'm Fitz and I blog at Ready To Be Rich.

When I started blogging, Entrecard was the biggest thing in the blogosphere. And although many blogs are now removing their Entrecard widget from their blogs, I still keep mine.

Here's why:

1. There are still a lot of blogs with Entrecard. Given that, Entrecard is still the cheapest way to advertise your blog in others.

2. When you drop cards often and advertise in new blogs, more often than not, you convert the rookie blog owner into a subscriber in your blog.

3. I usually use my credits to become a sponsor in blog contests of others. Thus, giving me precious link love from the blog contest participants.

4. The Entrecard Market is a very interesting place and I've used my credits to buy some stuff there, both virtual and physical goods.

Basically, these are the top 4 reasons why I still have an Entrecard widget in my blog. I noticed that by putting it below the fold, I've minimized "bouncing" in my blog.

Truth about entrecard

There are some facts on entrecard
1. Entrecard does not bring much traffic as you expected.
According to google analytics, my blog got from entrecard about 100 visit per day. The bounce rate is 93%.
2. Entrecard traffic can not bring money.
According to my google adsense, i got 1$ from the beginning till now from clicks from entrecard. Strange. That is because of high bounce rate and people do not have time to click on real ads :)). Another reason is that entrecard people try to remove ads and images from the blog they visit.
3. People rare comment on blog post or read post.
It is the trouble of entrecard system. You got award only when you drop as much as posible.
If you drop so much, you will be tired and do not want see or read any blogs. I am sure about it.
4. You can be banned very easily.
Many famous bloggers are banned from entrecard. And you should be carefull when your blog has high popularity rank.

Entrecard - Above The Fold

What do you think about having the ability to place every Entrecard widget Above the fold? See the demonstration in this video:

Leave your comments below. Thanks!

Pagerank updated - PR 2

Now my blog has pagerank = 2. I satisfied in this rank. Really, i do not spend much time on SEO. Actually, if you do SEO seriously, your pagerank will increase. But it will fall down when you do not SEO. Therefore, i make the pagerank increase naturally. That mean that people will make backlink on me naturally. And it also points that content is king.
We do not need to care about pagerank. Just care about content. Your pagerank will increase along with your content.
Good luck to you.
