Question from Sylvia M.: Rick, I have a womens’ book review blog that I’m trying to promote. I’ve been writing at least one post every day for 7 months, but my traffic is still just a trickle compared to where I would like it to be.
I was doing some research on the Internet about how to grow blog traffic and I discovered a service called BlogUpp. Since there’s no sign-up of any kind required and you don’t have to give them any personal information, I’m seriously considering adding their widget to my blog.
I have a couple of questions that I’d like to ask you before I start using the BlogUpp widget:
1) Is it really effective at driving traffic to a blog?
2) Will using BlogUpp cause me any problems with the search engines ranking my blog posts?
Thanks in advance for your help Rick!
