Bloggers Buzzing About Yahoo Buzz

Yahoo BuzzThe latest buzz on the internet is Yahoo Buzz. Everyone from Entrecard to Problogger are buzzing. Both are different opinions, Entrecard has jumped on board, while Problogger isn’t buying the bait, neither am I. Regardless many people are excited over the possibilities of Yahoo Buzz. There is no web page more desired to be featured on than Yahoo!

Yahoo Buzz

Yahoo Buzz is another way to promote your content and articles. Some of the top stories that are buzzed, get featured on the front page of Yahoo. I’ve read reports that still gets more visits than Google, so imagine the flood of traffic you’d receive from this.

Since Yahoo Buzz is allowing everyone to submit their content to it, I’ve seen many bloggers pushing Yahoo Buzz for votes. I have yet to see anyone report traffic, if any, for using Buzz. Until then I will be a little bit weary of it.

I’d have to imagine votes will be easy to get since nearly everyone at least has a Yahoo account. And thats all you need for a vote.

    I think that Yahoo! Buzz has a lot of potential but I don’t know if they will be able to take this social network to the heights that it is capable of reaching.

    We will have to just wait and see.

    Hey Matt,
    I recently started Tech Pisstaker blog, and installed the Buzz button. It really slowed my site loading time, but I persevered thinking it must be good, it is Yahoo. Then today, after zero action, I was on a big SEO blog and this really popular post had a Buzz button, and no votes. I just concluded that if a site with 11000 RSS readers gets no Buzz, what chance have I, so I removed the code. Faster loading, and no delusions.

    Hope everything is well with you.

    Thanks for the comment Ed.

    With any social media you need to have backing and votes. But once you get the votes, then what?

    I have heard it wasn’t really worth it thus far for those who have used it. Maybe I’ll give it a shot and find out myself?
