Looking For Traffic!!!!

There is a new Web Log Promoter in town, making it easy to bring traffic to web logs. It is called RSS Hugger and is the brain child of Colin LaHay. It is a site that allows web masters to link up and promote their web logs.

This site is oozing with potential to became a blockbuster in the months to come. This newly created site only last November, 2007 has an Alexa ranking of 90,091. Because of the site youth there are only 439 feeds (440 feeds with mine) so far in the sites data bank.

The idea behind the new site is to create buzz and generate new RSS subscribers for RSS feeds that are added to the site. When you join rssHugger you basically get your feed headlines displayed on your own page within the site.

The site can be free to link into. They request that the web master writes a post or review recommending RSS Hugger. For this posting, the site will give the Web Log a listing in rssHugger for 10 years for free. Included benefits for web masters are :
1. Raise awareness of your web log
2. Send tons of visitors to your web log
3. Share traffic with the community
4. Be part of a viral/buzz marketing campaign
5. Build deep-links for your web log posts to help with search engine optimization
6. Get new interested RSS subscribers who view your content on a regular basis.
or the visitors:
1. Find blogs that interest you
2. Easily subscribe to many blogs
3. Skim over hundreds of blogs to find what suits you

The other option instead of writing a review is to pay a one time fee of $20, which runs down to only $2 per year making rssHugger the biggest bang for your buck in terms of web log advertising and promotion.

Colin LaHay said, "My goal was originally to get 50,000 blogs signed up with a $10 joiners fee, but due to the fact that I want to support all of the great bloggers, even those who cannot afford $10, I changed this goal to sign up 250,000 free blogs within the first year of operation. With over 112 million registered blogs, with about 175,000 new ones per day, I feel this goal is possible. The money will be used to pay off college expenses, to invest in my other internet startup companies, sponsor like-minded business folk, and continue to support Kiva, who support entrepreneurs in the developing world." It has been said by several people that the program RSS Hugger seems to be a cross between an RSS directory and a wiki.
