The Best Websites to List Your Blog Giveaways

how to blogEdit: Updated to reflect May and June 2011 traffic sources.

Whether you’re a company wondering how much exposure your product will receive from hosting a giveaway on Freebie Spot or if you’re a blogger looking to promote your giveaways, the following is a complete list of resources of where Freebie Spot giveaways are promoted.

I do not list my giveaways on every linky or giveaway directory on the internet. Why? Because most of these linkys provide little to no return traffic. It is not worth the time required to list giveaways there. I am constantly testing new sources for traffic so it is possible that this list will change over time. If you have a linky or giveaway directory you would like me to try and potentially be added to this list, please contact me.

The following traffic-tested list is ordered from highest traffic to lowest traffic, but even the lowest traffic site listed still produces great traffic numbers since this is an exclusive list.

Freebie Spot approved traffic-tested list:

Currently testing (not approved yet):

No longer using due to low traffic numbers: I deleted some before making this post. I will add names as I remember them.

  • Contest for Moms (www.contestformoms.com) little to no traffic
  • Mom Audience (www.momaudience.com) little to no traffic
  • MyWeeView linky (www.myweeview.com/category/linkup/) little to no traffic
  • Mom Giveaways (www.momgiveaways.com) (1 May; 0 June) Late in posting giveaways; little to no traffic
  • Prize-a-tron (www.prizeatron.com) (0 May; 2 June) They pick and choose what to post and from who; little to no traffic

    Hiya Jenny, was wondering if you could post my Giveaway Linky or test mine out.  I run a sweepstakes/giveaways site over at Linkies Contest Linkies and have an ongoing linky as well.  
    My link is - http://www.linkiescontestlinkies.com/p/ongoing-giveaway-linky.html
    Thanks in advance.

    Sincerely

    Over from PITM!! THanks for this list! I need to start listing my giveaways at these places! I swear I run out of time and don’t post them there. I think I am super lucky and have great readers, but I’d love more entries! :)
    BTW how do you find out what your numbers are from these places???

      I may eventually stop posting giveaways at these places because I’d rather have my dedicated readers win rather than someone who only visited for the giveaway.

      And the numbers are from Google Analytics. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

    I just started a new blog and I have a giveaway going. This post just marked a big item off my TO DO list for the week! Thanks so much!

    We too are new bloggers and we have never actually given away stuff on our site. Article started some new thoughts for us! I think we will take it slow though, it is tough enough coming up with new content all the time! ;)

    I really appreciate you posting this! Love that the list is traffic-tested to save me some time. Online-Sweepstakes, Prizey,, and Blog Giveaway Directory I have been using. I will now expand to Tip Junkie and maybe Pixie 13. Thank you!
