October 22nd, 2007

Thought I would share this email I got from the BlogRush team. Great to see they are trying quality control methods to improve the network. I really enjoy their tool.

An Important BlogRush News Update…
– Congratulations!
– 10,000+ Blogs Removed From BlogRush
– Phase 2 Being Deployed
– Busy Week Ahead!

You are receiving this update because your blog has passed our strictQuality Guidelines and criteria — we believe you have a high-qualityblog and we are happy you’re a member of our network!

10,000+ Blogs Removed From BlogRush
We’ve just completed a massive SWEEP of our entire network. We’ve removed over *10,000* blogs (Yes, ten thousand) that did not meet our new Quality Guidelines.

We have done a huge “quality control audit” of our network and have reviewed all the blogs one-at-a-time. We will continue to review each NEW blog that is ever submitted to our network.

You will notice the HUGE DIFFERENCE in the quality of blogs that now appear in your widget. This major *sweep* of our network will also increase the click-rates across the entire network and you will start to receive more traffic.

But we’re only getting started. We’ve got LOTS of amazing improvements in the works to help you get more daily traffic from our network.

Phase 2 Being Deployed
We’re in the process of rolling out our massive “Phase 2” upgrade to BlogRush. In the next few days you’ll see an all-new Dashboard,advanced statistics reporting, and much, much more.

We’re introducing tons of new sub-categories to help with content relevance (which will increase click-rates and traffic).

We’re also introducing a “Thin Widget” option. Many of our members cannot use the standard widget because it’s too wide for their blog.This new widget format will solve this issue.

Busy Week Ahead!
We have a busy week ahead as we will start rolling out all these fantastic changes. Thanks so much for your patience! We will continue to work very hard to help drive more quality, targeted DAILYTRAFFIC to your blog.

Best Regards,
John Reese, Founder of BlogRush

I will be hunting a removal email from someone’s blog in the next couple of days. Just to see what it says and if they promote a resubmission to their network.
