Driving Traffic To Your Blog With MySpace

I’m always looking for cheap ways to drive more traffic to my blogs. Last year, I created a Dallas Cowboys profile on MySpace. I found a ton of Cowboys fanatics on there, and used FriendBlaster Pro to add them as my friends.

Even with the software, it was a pain in the ass, because of MySpace’s CAPTCHA security.. Add too many friends at once, and they’d catch on to you and delete your account. So you were limited to about 500 friend requests each day.

Over the next few weeks, I managed to add almost 2000 QUALITY friends to my account. But I had no idea how to get them to visit our Cowboys blog. MySpace has their own blogging system, but there’s no way to import your previously posted stories. And logging in each day to update their blog with our updates was just too tedious and time-consuming.

Then I stumbled onto Widgetbox. With Widgetbox, you can create what’s known as a “blidget”, which uses your blog’s RSS feed to generate a flash-driven widget. You can then click the “Add to MySpace” button, and add it directly to your profile! I put my widget right in the “About Me” section, so it’s front and center to every person that visits my page.

Now, I’ve got a much better chance of grabbing traffic that comes to my page, and it updates automatically. Gotta love it!
