BlogRush creating legitimate blog traffic free?

On September 9, a new service to drive traffic to blogs was created called BlogRush. The idea is that if you display their widget on your blog, your blog headlines will appear on other people's blogs. Supposedly, your headlines only appear on "related" websites, but I found the categories that BlogRush uses are somewhat limited. For example, I chose "Marketing" for Pajama Market, which makes sense, but is a pretty big category.

Here is a video that explains how it works:

The service is free.

I'm going to try it for a few weeks and see if it has any real impact on my traffic.

will it bring traffic for the small guys though that is the question? since traffic looks like its base on tier systems and impressions how will a small blog survive?

I don't know, and neither do you. The program is like a week old so I'm not passing judgment quite yet. After a week or two I'll see if I get any new traffic from it.

If I do, I really don't care if it's benefiting larger blogs more. The bottom line is, does it create more traffic for me? I could speculate on this as long as I want to, but the only way to know is to try it.

I recently developed a free wordpress plugin called "BlogRush Click Maximizer". By using it you can vastly improve your Click Through Rate.

This allows you to control what you want to display in BlogRush. You can even write alternate - short and catchy title just for BlogRush.

You will have total control of what appears over the BlogRush Network.

This is certainly creating such a buzz. I've yet to try it for myself, but it looks promising. Thanks for this!
