Intersting blog, but tellme do I need to give you clicks or just banner impressions? Thanks for the advice.

Only widget impressions, no hassle. And with each of them you automatically obtain views of your blog in the widget throughout the community. That's the origin of BlogUpp! slogan - Automated Blog Promotion.

We found BlogUpp! is the best concept to help bloggers. As one of BlogUpp! user's we have one suggest, "Maybe BlogUpp! could be relevan keywords to run this free widget" that's make it all populars including BlogUpp!

(Sorry about our English).

Thanks for suggestion.
Keyword targeting is indeed a widely used technique.
We've chosen instead the interest-based method, which has gained popularity recently, and resource-wise is more cost efficient.
Nevertheless, we might re-consider again in future keyword targeting, if that will be necessary.

The text of the widget not always coincide with the snapshot (the picture). Sometimes it's a bit of annoyance: clicking for the picture you need to browse a lot to find it in the blog. Maybe smth could be done about it?

Blogger Valer @BlogUpp said... (Wednesday, April 22, 2009)  

@Amikeco, we understand your concern.
It's true that we automatically scan for new blog posts each and every day. The blog snapshot however is taken not that often. Nevertheless, you - the blogger - can refresh your blog image at BlogUpp! anytime you think the new blog snapshot will be more representative and attractive. Here's how.
