BlogRush Is Closing Down

Thursday, October 30, 2008

BlogRush is closing downBlogRush, a blog advertising system, has decided to shut down. John Reese, the man behind BlogRush, announced The Death of BlogRush in his blog. I also understand that separate e-mails were sent to individual users instructing them to remove the BlogRush widget.

The Launch of BlogRush
When BlogRush launched in 2007, the news spread like wildfire all around the Web. It should be considered as one of the highly discussed topics, among bloggers of course. BlogRush worked hard to implement many changes after the initial launch. The second release came with attractive reports and much more options for customization.

The Failure of BlogRush
But, it remained a fact that BlogRush could not attract very high click rates, in spite of its many efforts. John Reese, himself, admits that “the click-rates across the network are dreadfully low”.In fact, I wrote about this in one of my posts titled "Does BlogRush bring any traffic?". I also noticed that BlogRush filters some posts being syndicated. It is not yet clear why BlogRush did this, and we may never know. It may be due to glitches in the system.

Bye Bye BlogRush
Whatever said and done, I should agree that BlogRush looked attractive at the beginning. It might end as an unsuccessful idea, but the effort has been made. My wholehearted thanks to John Reese and his team for doing their best to make BlogRush a success.

Heard about this yesterday and it's a shame. I tried to get BlogRush on my blog, but I was too new and didn't have enough posts. Wish them well.

Hi CJ,

Yes, it was a good advertising system to start with. But, it did not deliver as expected. I tried BlogRush at the early stages, without much success.

Thanks.

Yes, the letter is around the blogosphere. I think this is being expected for some time ago.

Many have removed their widget which includes me because of low traffic.

Hi Anshul,

Thanks for your comments and constructive feedback.

The idea of keeping the widget simple is to ensure that the widget fits into the style of the blog. Currently, the widget will synchronize with the theme of the blog. Most of us prefer that, rather than a stand-out design.

Regarding the comment box, I am just a bit lazy to incorporate the embedded box. As I have customized my layout, I need a bit of work to make this work. Thanks anyway for reminding. I will try to implement it soon.

BlogRush was a good concept, but it simply didn't work well at the end.

Manick November 11, 2008 at 1:01 AM  

Hi Blogging for Novice,

Yes, you are right. The concept is good. But, unfortunately, the clicks were not coming through. It failed somewhere.

I knew BlogRush wouldn't last long. It just delivered too little traffic.

Manick December 5, 2008 at 12:31 AM  

Hi Leon,

Yes, BlogRush did not deliver what it promised. Too little traffic led to its downfall.
