The Difference Between MyBlogLog and Blog Catalog
- 7 Comment
When I posted 10 Quick Blogging Tips I included that joining blogging networks is important. MyBlogLog has been pretty consistent in sending 100-200 visitors per month to our blog.
I am currently subscribed to blogcatalog not bloglog. Is one better than the other and why?
Besides the small differences, they are very much the same.
It Doesn’t Matter Which is “Better”
You should join both of them regardless how good they are. If driving traffic to your blog is your goal, join as many of these sites as you can. The more your blog is exposed to these networks, the more people can find your blog.
What You Put in, is What You Get
The amount of time you spend on this networks is key to how well they will perform. If you spend 6 hours a day building contacts, visiting blogs, leaving messages, adding things, doing backflips, and performing miracles, essentially the service will do well for you. If you spend 5 minutes a day looking at your stats, they won’t perform as well.
My Take on the Networks
MyBlogLog has easy upkeep, by simply putting a MyBlogLog widget in your sidebar you can display your recent readers. With little promotion you can also build a nice size community. Many members have their settings at when they view your blog 10 times, they join your community automatically.
Our MyBlogLog community is currently at 592 members, just shy of 600.
BlogCatalog is on more of a ranking system that I don’t quite understand. I think you get more points for linking back to them and installing their widget.
Blog Catalog has more features for discussion and interacting with other bloggers that aren’t in your community. I have yet to utilize this feature, some threads get hundreds of replies while many get unnoticed. It may be good use for any promotion you may be offering, a contest your running, or something interesting you are doing at your blog.
The Difference is…
what you make it. The more you invest into blogging networks, the more you can get out of them.
