I have been a member of Entrecard for a few months now and it has helped me "meet" other bloggers and has brought traffic to my blogs. I have been a little concerned about the bounce rate of visitors from Entrecard, but I have stuck with it because enough people have actually taken the time to read my blogs to make it worth my while. Previously the way it would work is that you could earn credits by visiting other blogs in the network and "dropping" on them and by "selling" an ad spot on your Entrecard widget. In turn you can redeem your credits for ads on other blogs in the network. However, it has been announced recently that changes are afoot. These will remain, but with a few changes.
The key changes are:
- Up to 50% of the ad impressions on Entrecard widgets will be 3rd party ads.
- The Entrecard widget has to be placed "above the fold" or within one keystroke of the page down key.
- You will be able to trade in your Entrecard credits for CASH!
