Entrecard Traffic Continues to Dive

While traffic isn't the whole story behind Entrecard, the more traffic flowing through the network, the more traffic you will likely see on your own sites. According to Compete, which I've used in the past to judge how much traffic Entrecard is seeing, traffic fell nearly 12% during the month of December, resulting in a yearly change of 30.29% and 87% across all the subdomains.

Entrecard Traffic - January 2010

According to the traffic adn.entrecard.com receives, which is the subdomain/server the ads/widget are served from, about 905,000 unique visitors were served. Now, none of the traffic is exact, and they could certainly be reporting higher numbers, but the trends are right in front of you.

Last year, the site was serving nearly two million visitors, traffic declined dramatically from March to June, and leveled off (compared to the height of the decline) through November, and if current trends continue, there will be another 150,000 visitor drop this month (January).

In the end, have you noticed traffic from Entrecard declining or are these figures not representative of what the network is still serving?

I dropped EC altogether on most of my sites. It just wasn't a significant source of traffic. Still use it on one of my blogs just for the heck of it.

I use EC on two sites, down from four. Traffic is mixed, but it still helps with one of my sites.

Overall, EC isn't what it once was but I recently read they are now accepting websites. That may stabilize things if not result in an increase.

As with anything, you pretty much get out what you put in. I continue to average between 400 and 500 hits per day with Entrecard.

I saw a slight decline in traffic...about 50-70 hits less than usual, but put use EC the same as previously. It does provide a boost to my blog but I would agree that it has been on the decline.

Thank you for your thoughts on giving insights regarding EC. I haven't tried EC. It seems the post is realistic for me but with some comments it really gives me a second thought.

Looking at my stats, EntreCard drove a fair amount of traffic in Jan 2009. It declined 40% into Feb 2009, and then slowly drifted lower to losing an additional 30% by July. It has regained about 26% since then, but is still just better than half of what it was a year ago.

For me i don't actively use it nowadays. I don't know but I don't think it's really helping me.
