Banned From BlogRush?

Discussion in 'General Marketing' started by bobmeetsworld, Oct 22, 2007.

    This morning I found that my blog was banned from blogrush,even though I provided them with ~1000 direct referrals and plenty of traffic. John Reese deleted my blogs pingbacks from his comments section too, looks like he's acknowleding the mistake and is now trying to cover up.

    Yea , Blog rush was poorly planned,

    I do respect John a lot for his work, but this while thing was poorly planned.

    he should have all his ducks in a row before the launch

    I just think he didn't want to be left out with a new site

    Sorry to here that and love your blog by the way :)

    Oh ps who did your header?

    That could not be the reason.

    Btw Bob, did you maybe used that trick that John Chow wrote on his blog in regard to making the titles of the post look more shexy ? ;)

    More than blogrush was badly planned, i think the whole system sucked big time. Recently I received a comment from a guy called David Bullock on my modern blogrush post which pretty much makes sense and kinda explains what blogrush is and some other words about John Reese

    Nooooooooo, that couldn't be the reason.

    I'm messin' around. :) I could care less anyway. It was just a freakin' link exchange crap with a name attached to it, to make it look as if it was something cool.

    Apparently over 10,000 blogs have been removed because they didn't meet BlogRush's new quality guidelines. Some people actually think it is a scam.

    Nice post. I like John Cows layout on his blog... Good stuff. It's lame that he got banned. I wonder how much traffic he was getting with all those referrals..

    Although I'm no big fan of blogrush, you gotta hand it to John Reese. His marketing prowess is excellent and I could stand to learn a trick or two from him. Granted, a quality product would have been the icing on the cake for him!
    I feel that blogrush perpetuates the "rich getting richer" mantra - I'm sure that John Chow and Shoe got a ton of links from one another from that thing.
    What do you guys feel could have been better about Blogrush?

    Blogrush is a scam - not only John Cow.

    I got approved even if script was not on my site.

    I don't know if it is a scam or just so poorly thought out for the long run that now they have too much on their plate. I have started many different successful businesses and the main thing to do it "under promise, over deliver" and Mr Reese did the opposite of that.

    Well after reading john reeses blog I will have to change what I said above. It really seems like a lot of people did get ripped off bad in this that he basically deleted 10,000 blogs from blogrush without any reason because their servers couldn't take it and they were trying to make quality of traffic to the rest of the blogs better
