Have you joined Thoof.com yet? It’s a site where you can go to read news articles, view photographs and videos and or posts from websites and blogs.
Members may submit their stories to Thoof when they’ve created a post that they’d like to share with the world.
Submitting your stories is actually a great way to drive traffic to your site. I know a number of bloggers who have been using Thoof regularly since they discovered it, and they’ve said that they get new visitors every day. There’s even a Thoofit button that you can drag to your bookmarks that makes it even easier to submit a story or article that interests you from any site on the web. You can find that button on the submit it page.
What’s more, when you visit Thoof and search for a particular type of story, photo or video the site will remember the choices that you’ve made so that the next time that you visit stories, photos and videos of a similar nature will be on the front page when you sign in. In this way Thoof can become your own personalized news site.
Thoof has recently added a new feature to their site. When you submit a story you’ll get a ThoofRank badge that you can add to your site. This badge will measure your stories popularity on Thoof.
I think this is a great idea. Other than looking at our sites stats or how many comments we get on a particular post we have very few ways to measure the popularity of the various posts we create. Now, when you submit a story to Thoof and use the ThoofRank badge you’ll have another way to measure how interesting your story is to others.
I think I’m going to start using Thoof more often. I mean other bloggers have said they are getting traffic to their site from the stories they’ve submitted and they’ve also said they like the stories they are reading on the site. It’s a great way to keep up with other bloggers.
I’ll start by submitting this story. It’ll also be a great way to test out the new ThoofRank badge. I wonder just how popular this story might be?
So who’s going to join me at Thoof?
