Thruzt Your Blog Posts

Breaking – Thruzt Your Blog Posts!

The really big social bookmarking websites have always been mean to bloggers. Reddit will cut off your head for submitting your own post. Digg won’t let your blog post get too far.

On the other hand, smaller niche social bookmarking sites like MMOsocialnetwork, BizSugar, Blokube and My SEO Community encourage members to submit and promote their own blog posts – as long as the posts are good quality, of course.

All fine and dandy if you happen to blog about business and blogging and have no interest in reaching a wider audience.

But what if you blog about crafts?

Or fitness?

Or the military?

Or nature?

Like Digg and Reddit – but welcomes bloggers Well, finally there is a big social bookmarking site (you know, with all sorts of useful categories – and even some rather whimsical ones, too) that welcomes your blog posts:

It’s called Thruzt.

  • You are welcome to submit your posts.
  • You are welcome to promote your posts.
  • And you won’t be stopped from “popping”.

The founder of the site had a lot to say about this in a wide-ranging interview, which I reported on my blog. No need to repeat it all here; you can read the original report at. Just make sure your posts are good quality, because nobody will vote trash or even ho-hum stuff (like plugin reviews or step-by-step software instructions) to the front page.

By the way, there is even a category (sorry, a “path”) for blogs (“tumblr & Blogs”).

You can follow me on Thruzt at http://thruzt.com/user/history/amabaie/. And you can follow my “Howls” (read my post for details) at http://howl.thruzt.com/amabaie/. I hope to see you there.

David Leonhardt is an Ottawa based SEO consultant. When not guest blogging he occasionally finds the time to update his own SEO marketing blog. Or you can follow him (Amabaie) on Twitter and most social bookmarking websites.

    Thanks for your sharing Amabaie. I’ll check Thrutz since Reddit is almost not allowed bloggers to post their own posts (Reddit has specific rules).

    Thruzt has been great so far, having so many of the Digg power users over on there should really help it’s chances for success!

  • Ari Wahyudi May 13, 2012, 12:01 am

    Sounds cool! I’ll check it out.

  • Joe Boyle May 10, 2012, 12:17 am

    That’s a really neat tool that you’ve dug up, there. I’ve been looking around on Thruzt and it’s pretty useful – I can see it taking off in the future!

    Great David, thanks for sharing this new bookmarking tool.

    I just would like to comment about Reddit. I have been submitting my own blog posts only. (My account is still active). I don’t think they will ban you for that. Maybe they’ll ban you if you just submit 10 times a day and don’t care for other submitted posts.

      Hi Dan. I know far too many people who’s Reddit accounts have been zombied for even occasionally submitting their own stuff among other things. What makes Reddit evil, is that the user thinks his account is still active. But only he sees his comments and only he sees his votes and only he sees his submissions. And if you email them to find out why your account has been zombied, don’t expect the courtesy of a response like the rest of us normal human beings would give each other.

    Great social bookmarking site and looks like the Pinterest for bloggers. I’m heading over to get an thruzt account.

    One that you gotta add: Inbound.org

    That’s by SEOmoz & team, definitely a great way to get exposure (content has to be top notch though).

      Good point. I have an account there, and I don’t think I’ve made use of it. I should.

  • Hesham Zebida May 9, 2012, 5:33 pm

    Something that I really like about you David is how you find cool bookmarking sites :)

    I’ve got my Thruzt account since I saw your post yesterday, nice one!

  • Morgan May 9, 2012, 4:39 pm

    Hey amabaie looks great, almost looks like a copy cat of pintetest which is fine, in fact it’s great, like blog engage is a copy of digg sort of.. but the point is there’s room to grow for niche social book marketing sites. I really like it well done. Do you own it or are you just marketing it?
