Maybe some of you face this problem. Today, suddenly some shoutmix didn't work. Some Blog-walkers can't put their link. This is so crucial since blog-walking is the common way to increase blog/website's traffic. So these tips may be useful...
1. Prune Messages
Delete all messages and refresh. You'll get your new shoutmix immediately.
- Login to shoutmix.com
- See General -> Prune Messages
- Choose Delete All Messages
- Type in your password then click Apply
But this doesn't guarantee for long time. If this happen again, you have to replay this step over and over...
2. Change with other widget
Tired of doing 1st step over and over? Then you can choose this 2nd step. I suggest you to change your widget with another chat widget for a while..
Shoutmix.widget.me has similar template with shoutmix but you can't put any smiley nor change local time.
3. Upgrade to Premium
If you want to get more facilities, you can upgrade to Premium with $3/month
Okay, now you have fixed your shoutmix, but how can you promote your link??
1. Put Url on your message
You can do blogwalking and put your link on your message without www or http://
example : share-everythings.blogspot.com
6. Blogwalking to Premium Shoutmix
You can do blogwalking like usual on Premium shoutmix like:
- Kolom Tutorial
7. Blogwalking to Chat box user except Shoutmix
Do blogwalking to another chat box user, example cbox. Some bloggers use cbox instead of Shoutmix. Great, isn't it?.
If you can't find another chat box, do comments ! Go to your friend's page and give comment. But remember ! Don't spam on their blog !
9. Be Active in Forum
This can be great alternative if you are an active member in forum. You can still "say hi" and promote your link.
Hope this article is helpful.. And I really really hope "shoutmix" problem will be fixed as soon as possible
