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.

Do you think that entrecard rule is strict?

I think entrecard rule is very strict in some aspects but is loose in others aspects.

>> 1. No nudity: Entrecard, and its members blogs, are generally family friendly. Blogs with images containing nudity are not permitted. This includes nudity in advertisements.

+ I know it is because of children. But how can we identify that an image contains nudity.Do we consider a photo of a girl in bikiny contains nudity? How can we measure the nudity? This rule is not strict and make people confuse. The rule is depended on what moderator thinking. This should be more clear.
+ Another thing is nudity in advertisments. How can we know when ads show nudity?

>> 2.English only: Until we develop the infrastructure necessary to facilitate non-English
>> language blogs, English is the only language allowed in Entrecard.

It's OK

3. Minimum 5 posts: Blogs with no posts, or less than 5 quality posts written within the last 3 months, will be removed.

Remove spam blogs. I think it is ok.

4. Content must be original: Reproduced content does not provide the specific qualities we are looking for in the Entrecard network. This includes both sites that use legitimate reprintable content such as “free articles”, abstracts and public domain content as well as illegitimate, illegal content such as stolen content or scraped feeds. Duplicate content, such as posts that appear on two or more blogs belonging to the same person is also unacceptable.

It is difficult to find out if your posts is original. Because not all knowledge is ours. We have to reference to other sources in order to write a good post. So i think this rule is very strict. We only need to show where the sources come from.

4. No full-screen ads or popups: Blogs that include full-screen ads or popups will be removed. This includes any popup window that appears when the site has finished loading or when clicking to view an article. It is OK for links to display a popup window if the user clicks a link, e.g. FeedBurner email subscription, but popup ads or forceful messages asking people to subscribe without clicking anything are intrusive and therefore not allowed.

I also do not like popup. But prohibit full-screen ads is bad. Entrecard site do not provide the quality traffic. And publisher can not earn from entrecard traffic. I see that many people block ads and therefore no money from banner or texts ads. Full-screen ads will be the suitable ads in this case.

5.No illegal file downloads: Blogs that link to illegally shared files, such as music, movies or software, will be removed. By “illegal” we mean content that you do not have the right to distribute. Linking to free, legal music and software is permitted.

It's ok

6.Entrecard widget must be present: Including the widget on your site is a requirement if you wish to participate in Entrecard.

It's ok

7. No redirects: Sites that use a redirect (such as tinyurl links) as the URL on their account will be deleted.

It's ok

8. No duplicate accounts: If you have more than one account for the same blog, the duplicate account will be deleted.

It's ok

  • URLs must be valid: Sites with URLs that do not work or are wrongly typed will be deleted.
  • No autoplaying audio: This includes music that plays automatically when you visit the page, or short audio ads that come up unannounced.
  • Content must be recent: Sites that have not been updated in 3 months will be removed.

  • It's ok

    Does advertise on entrecard like gambling?

    Does advertisement on entrecard like gambling? The answer is YES. Sometimes i got many clicks from low value sites. But many times i got a very few traffic from my advertisment in some season like christmas, holiday season... So to increase traffic by using entrecard, you should follow some hints:
    1. Content is king: so write a hot news and unique news
    2. Entrecard should be attractive
    3. Advertise on many different blogs as much as posible and chose site which generate more traffic to advertise again.
    4. Make friend. With more friends, you can have more loyal readers. You can do this by comments on his blogs.

    7. Advertise on working day not weekend.
