What’s BlogExplosion? It is meant as an easy way to drive more visitors to your weblog, and it’s based on a very original idea.

Just register with your email (note: their confirmation verification landed in my spam box). Now for every two random blogs you visit using this service, one person is directed to your blog in return. And you can’t cheat, because you need to stay at every site for at least half a minute, and then click on a number on top to continue.

To make use of the credits you earn you need to provide BlogExplosion with one or more of your blogs (or blog-related services) in your profile. Your URLs will be reviewed within 1-2 days. (Mine was approved within several hours.) After approval you also need to assign the credits you earned to your blog.
