Double Fechr Blog Promotion

August 28, 2007

I decided a while ago that this forum is really aimed at well, me. It’s useful mix of journal and writing and other creativity though there are many more hours I could spend in here! But that decision meant I have stayed away from trying to place Google ads and all of that sort of stuff. I have not really focused on getting a lot of online attention although there is now a regular round of readers and visitors – repeat visitors are flattering, let’s be honest. However many of those visitors first picked up on Pickled Eel when Bobby at Bestest Blog got me some pretty broad spectrum coverage through his site. After something of a hiatus he is back with a new promotion tool which is worth having a look at. Linked here is (pronounced Feature) which gives you 24 hours of intense exposure for no cost (at the moment) – a double fechr whichever way you look at it.

Bestest Blog

I am not sure how kosher or otherwise it is to be placing site traffic analysis up on the blog but I thought some of you might be interested in the dramatic difference a very small investment in Bobby’s site has made. Specifically it started with the Premium Blog promotion that was responsible for this spike, since a lot, but not all of the traffic was coming via Bobby’s new Random Blog button. And of course the more visible promotion of the Pickled Eel blog across his site helped, as has the “Best Blog of the Month” promotion which went up on his site later today. The graphic here shows traffic past and through (not everyone has a rummage around) the Pickled Eel Blog. It will be interesting to see what the trend looks like in three months but improved traffic is a good start. Now let’s see how to make this site a little more “sticky” – feel free to pause a moment and leave any comments. Thanks Bobby.
