I am dedicatedly dropping 300 cards a day for this blog on Entrecard for few months now. It takes nearly an hour a day to complete entrecard drops daily. Plus, I am advertising on this network with 2k-3k EC per day. Traffic referred from dropping activity gets me about 80-100 unique visitors (UV) a day. Traffic referred from adn.entrecard.com (advertising platform), gets me another 50-70 UV per day. That is a total of 130-170 UV per day from Entrecard. But, I am getting cards dropped in my inbox much higher than this number, usually around 240-270 cards a day. Possible, some entrecarders have more than one blog on this network and actively dropping for 2 or more blogs, which means they might be dropping 600+ entrecards daily. I used to drop 300×6 blogs, equivalent to 1,800 entrecards a day and gave up within 2-3 months time.
Entrecard is not the only world. It was a wakeup call for me to give up dropping 1500+ cards a day and concentrate on one blog only, which is dropping 300 cards a day. It makes me to give up on other 5 blogs that I have been managing with consistent content updates. Entrecard is like a gifted program for new bloggers who is seeking traffic. I used to get 50-100 visitors a day before joining this network 2 years ago. Of course, the traffic referred from Entrecard network slows down recently. Currently, the top user on Entrecard receives 350-450 visitors daily. I used to get about 500+ drops a day and ranked top 5 blogs on Entrecard earlier. Not many active droppers in Entrecard these days compared to two years ago. If you are an older member, you would have notice this.
Although, the traffic referred from Entrecard and Google are still similar (100-150 UV per day), I still couldn’t find a reason to leave this network. There are 100s of blogs giving me back link for being their “Top Dropper” or “Recent Dropper” and is part of my Entrecard SEO. Some are aggressively returning my drops every single day. If the active numbers drops below 100UV per day, I would give up Entrecard totally. We could not engage in forums, blogs, etc to attract organic traffic from Entrecard. I used to argue with many entrecarders in Entrecard forums and Entrecard blog earlier which delivers some extra traffic. But, now everything is gone. There are some members still active believe in Entrecard that it would be better place. So how long are you going to drop 300 cards a day for your blog? I am 2 years now and still dropping like a zombie each day. Are there any other zombies like me?
