I have always been amazed when I come across a blog that has 35 million followers but only 25,000 hits and has only been up since June 2013.
At a minimum, I would think that if you have 35 million followers, you should have at least 35 million hits because each person would have to visit at least once in order to follow you.
Such is not the case, though.
I’m at 10,189 followers according to WordPress, but that includes WordPress, LinkedIn, and Twitter followers, so some of that is redundant. I suspect the number of actual people following me is closer to six or seven thousand.
More importantly, though, how do you even get 35 million followers?
Well, over the past few days, I have discovered how you do that. It’s done with exchanges.
There are various exchanges out there. You can participate in a YouTube exchange, a Facebook exchange, A Twitter exchange, even a WordPress follow exchange.
The one that I think I have hooked up with permanently is IBOexchange. Here is their front page:
As you can see, I can participate in exchanges for Facebook Likes, Facebook Shares, Facebook Followers, Google +1, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc.
Their motivation tool is Coins. With their free membership, you get 50 Coins per day when you log in. You offer a certain number of Coins to people who Like you on Facebook, or YouTube, etc. You can earn Coins by Likeing someone else.
Look at the portion of the screen in red, and you can see that if I Like the top left person/page, that person will give me 19 Coins. The more coins you offer people, the better position you get in those two rows, and the more Likes you’ll get. You can buy more Coins, or upgrade your free membership to VIP membership and get 100 Coins per day instead of 50. You can buy VIP membership by the day, week, month, or year. A year’s VIP membership is only $25.00, and you can pay with PayPal.
Since I have WordAds on this blog, I entered my WordPress URL by clicking on the “Traffic Exchange” button halfway down the left side column in the graphic above. Later today I’ll be upgrading to a VIP membership for the year. Let’s see if a traffic exchange increases the number of impressions that WordAds records, thereby increasing my monthly income from WordAds.
