WHAT IS ENTRECARD?

Entrecard is a program that allows a blog owner to advertise his blog and keep some advertisements in his blog. This program promotes, “blog walking” through their widget and help you network with other users, increase traffic to your site, earn EC (Entrecard Credits), and free advertise on other sites.

You should give “Valid Email Address”, “Category”, “Entrecard Style” ( you can upload a picture 125x125 or just select any default styles), “Blog URL”, and other details as required. Then Grab the code for “Entrecard Widget “ for your blog. After copying the code, Login to your “Blogger Account”,”Dashboard”, “Layout”, “Add A Gadget” and paste the Code and Save. Now the Entrecard Widget will appear on your blog. Your blog has now been submitted to Entrecard moderation team for approval. You will receive an email once your blog has been reviewed and approved.

It has been observed that, rarely your Entrecard Widgets are not scanned properly by Entrecard Automatic scanners. This will delay the approval of your blog and advertisements will not appear in your blog. Simply login to Entrecard, “ Dashboard”. Then you can request again for a scanning of the presence of Entrecard widget on your blog. When the scanner detects widget in your blog, then advertisements will start appearing on your blog.

HOW TO GENERATE TRAFFIC USING ENTRECARD.

METHOD ONE :

Learn Blog Walk: Once the Entrecard widget on your blog start showing advertisements, login to your Entrecard account, and in the Dashboard, where you can see “Drops inbox”.  Click on that, to see different blogs (date wise arranged) who visited your blog and “dropped “ you. Now a click on any of those will take you to that blog. Find the Entrecard Gadget in that blog. You can see a small tab called “Drop” where you had to click. Now it will return as “Thanks”. This means you will be in the “Drops inbox” of that blogger and whenever that blogger looks into the ‘Drop inbox”, will see your blog. This process is called Blog walk and automatically prompting bloggers to visit back their visitors. This process also will help you to earn more EC ( Entrecard Credits)

METHOD TWO :

Buy Advertisements for Free: Once you earn Entrecard Credits, then you can utilize those credits to display an advertisement of your blog in another blog. Login to Entrecard, go to “Dashboard” and then to “Campaign”. Here you can find blogs based upon category, popular, cheap or random. By searching here, to find a blog where you can advertise is quite easy. Here you can see our blog appearing in this Campaign. From this you can understand that if you want to advertisement in my blog, then you had to wait for 5 days and when you advertise on my blog, 32 EC will be deducted from your EC account. This EC will be credited in my account. Once you select a blog of your choice, simple click on “Advertise” tab as seen in this picture. Advertisement of your blog will come on that blog automatically on due date. Those bloggers who visit the blog that shows your advertisement will see your advertisement resulting in more visitors to your blog. So while preparing advertisements, use good pictures in your Widget to represent your blog.

AUTOMATIC LINK EXCHANGE USING COMMENTS

Link exchange is a very important term in search engine optimization. Bloggers must concentrate more in developing more links pointing towards your blog or website. Link exchange always help in increasing the importance and presence  of your blog in  blogosphere. In other words. This is one of the most powerful search engine optimization in blogosphere. An excellent weapon of all search engine optimization companies in internet.

LINK EXCHANGEUsual methods in link exchange are Blogroll, Directlinks in Posts, and Favorite Blog list.  A major disadvantage in making links using these three ways is that we had to request another blogger to exchange links. Is there any automatic way to make a link to your blog from another blog.

Here we are explaining an easy technique for an automatic link building.

 

  alarm Please completely read this post, and get your blog name in next post.

POWER OF COMMENTS

image Make comments after every new posts of other blogs that blogging on  related topics of your blog.It is easy to make comments in other blogs. Go to the latest post, and comment. All comments belonging to a post in a blog are crawled by search engines while indexing or crawling that post. If you have your comment in another blog with a link back to your blog, that also will be crawled by search engines and will be counted as one more link pointing to your blog. Care must be taken that never post similar comments because such comments with identical words are neglected by Search Engines.

So, always comment with some good words related to that post. More words you use in commenting, makes the search engine crawl relatively more time on it.

ADVANTAGES OF COMMENT LINKING:

  • Comment linking usually have relative importance. That means, it doesn’t matter whether you make a comment link from a blog of high PR or not. You will get more points in making comment links related to Total number of comments in that blog , Size of the comment (Comment with at least 20 words), Quality of the comment (Comment with the topic or keyword in that post), Nature of comment (Never use HTML links direct in the comment words as it will kill PR of blog owner. But you may link naturally using the method given below) and Time of comment (Try to comment as early as possible, be in the first 50 comments).
  • You can make comments in new blog posts of other blogs without asking their permission. Blog owners happily accepts any comment that praises or analyses their blog posts.
  • Bloggers who receive good comments will naturally visit and comment back to those who comment on their blogs. This will create a mutual agreement between bloggers in commenting and monetizing further.
  • If a blog post get a PR increase, then weightage of all comments in that posts will be automatically increased on next crawling and indexing.

forward MAKING COMMENT LINKS IN NATURAL WAY

  • STEP A : Find a blog that have related topics of your blog. (Joining in Entrecard, is very helpful in finding blogs categorically ). Take the new post and click on comment.
  • STEP B : Have a look on below given comment box. image Type your comment in the box provided. Then Type your name, preferably the “title of your blog” in the space provided. Then type the URL of your latest post in the space provided. (You may type your blog URL also here, but making link directly to individual pages is much better) . Then click on Publish. In some blogs, it require approval from the blog owner to view the comment

forward MAKING COMMENT LINKS USING HTML

  • STEP A : Find a blog that have related topics of your blog. (Joining in Entrecard, is very helpful in finding blogs categorically, ).
  • Take the new post in that blog and click on comment.
  • STEP B: Type desired comment in the comment box. Then select any particular word which you want to make a link. Replace that word with this HTML code.

<a href=http://yourblogname.blogspot.com>XXXXXX</a>

Here in this code replace “yourblogname.blogspot.com” with your website or blog URL and replace “XXXXXX” with the word you are placing inside the comment. Then Submit your comment. Most blogging hosts like Google and Wordpress are allowing small HTML pieces like this inside comment box. But overloading a comment box with such HTML pieces will kill a blog. We usually don’t approve such linked comments as many bloggers use this as an opportunity to create links.

You can select Ad Type as Interstitial or Banner or None. From earning point of view, selecting Interstitial will provide you more money. But it take 15 seconds while redirecting the URL and displays an advertisement. Usually visitors hate this and close the window. So better option is Banner because, it will show an advertisement only on the top of the window of the desired redirected URL . That means, visitors will not be delayed.

    You may select “None”, if you don't want income and just want to shorten URL.Now click on “Create”

    Now you will reach the page “ Manage”. Here you can view the statistics of the link you made. Just keep the move over the URL you gave to shorten. Now you will get the shortened URL.
