BlogRush – Is It Too Late?

I’ve been patiently waiting for the last three days to access my statistics on BlogRush. I’ve been interested in the service since I first heard about it, and I like the look of the widget.

Sure, the concept sounds a little like a pyramid scheme – but if no one is investing money (which I’m certainly not), then I don’t see how you can call it that.

Having said that, my patience is running thin. Three days of Internet time roughly the equivalent of waiting 4 to 6 weeks in the real world, and I’m about ready to pull the widget off the one blog I’ve been experimenting with it on. Before my stats page became “temporarily unavailable” I hadn’t received one single click for all the credits that I’d earned, and I’m beginning to doubt the ability of the team behind the project.

I understand that they were blindsided by popularity and scammers – but COME ON – can you really put something like this together and NOT expect scammers?

They’ve got to the end of the week to get my Dashboard up and running…after that, I’m taking the widget off the site, and I won’t be back. I love the concept and idea behind BlogRush, but I have yet to see any evidence of it actually working for a guy with smaller blogs like myself.

    I recently added it to my blog (last few days) and haven’t seen anything change in my local stats.

    I honestly hope they can pull things together, because I like the idea. If they can not, I might sit back and work out how it would work (done properly) and implement it myself.

    I’m in complete agreement with you, I’m tired of the continuous “we’re gonna make it better”, either it starts working soon, or it gets dropped, just like anything else.

    You could check your own site stats and see where referrals are originating — and if they have BlogRush on their sites, you can make a wee bit of an assumption…

    …and even though I smelled a rat the first minute I read about BlogRush and never, ever installed it — I’m hearing no “amazing results” of tremendous traffic from folks who have installed the widget.

    In more cases than not, I’m hearing “nope. nothing. nada.”

    So who, exactly, is benefitting from BlogRush?
