Xomba - how do you use it?

    I just use this site to bookmark my hubs, I don't like the layout of it, I just add a small part of information about my hubs
    seems to be working as Ive started noticing quite a few views on my hubs stats from that site

    Xomba is pretty easy to use, the layout is different from Hubpages. They catagorize two types of articles Xombytes 150 words or more and Xomblurbs 50 words. Links to other sites will appear in your articles advertising products unlike Hubpages. I am new to Hubpages but have been posting on Xomba for about six months.

    I just bookmark my hubs as well using the xomblurbs posting.

    I bookmarked all of my sites on Xomba. I've received a few hits so far but nothing too earth shattering although my traffic isn't great anyway! A lot of people on here seem to really like Xomba so I decided to give it a try. Like you, I don't like the layout of the site but maybe they'll improve it over time..

    Only use it for backlinks.  I get barely any traffic from it.

    I have decided to try xomba out.  I have heard some pretty bad things about it recently though so i am not putting much effort in to it just yet!

    I have just recently posted an article with them, but for linking purposes, it seems that they just slap the nofollow. Now i'm thinking to use them just for the ad money, but only if traffic looks good.

    I have put links to my hubs on it, but notice only a few hits.

    I have been using them for a couple of weeks now and get around 20% of my non-hubpages traffic from them.  I agree that the layout leaves a lot to be desired, but since they are so easy to use AND free I will continue to post my stuff there.

    I have an account on that,
    don't know if used it or not.

    Remember that unless your Xomba account is getting Google Search traffic, the Xomba traffic will be as poorly converting as Hubpages Traffic!

    I've also put up a couple of blurbs but have since noticed that links convert to nofollow after a while so I'm not sure I'll keep it up unless the blurbs themselves do better in the rankings. There is another long thread on this very point.

    I link my Hubs to Xomblurbs, My Xomblurbs to my Lenses and Lenses to Hubs.

    Yeah the no-follow thing makes xomba pretty much worthless for simple bookmarking.

    I am planning on writing a set of articles to pull in some organic Google traffic so I can pull in some more customers!

    the xomba layout is amazing for adsense,my Clickthrough rates are 20% higher than here at hubpages

    the links start dofollow and change to nofollow at some arbitrary time.

    usually the first week the blurb is posted at xomba I see a couple of hundred visits per blurb

    i have a hub that explains in more detail how i suggest to use xomba and shetoldme

    use your keyword tools in selecting titles and blurb copy and you will enjoy another super easy stream of profit

      I am not getting anywhere near that amount of traffic per hub, but it is decent traffic none the less and I will take what I can get!

    I have been using the blurbs, and while I don't get much traffic from Xomba I have been getting more traffic overall.
