A lot of bloggers already gave up on Entrecard, but I don’t. I still believe EC serves the purpose, that is to drive some traffic to your site.
When I started with EC they already removed the points you get when clicking the button of the blog you visit. You only get points when another blog advertise to you depending on your current rate. But what I noticed is that most (not all) returned your visits or clicks. So even if only 50% of your clicks are returned still it is gained traffic.
Why EC? Here’s why
I still use EC on some of my blogs and some are still pending approval. I just noticed it takes long time for a new blog to be approved, with the numbers of bloggers ditching EC they should speed up the approval process. Just some thoughts.
