Do you know what your ratio of your internal and external views?

I sent the results of the experiment to my buddy. He was pleased to see multiple people using his nonsense phrase in a comment. He also noted that a couple of folks that commented built on points in the article. He said that is a perfect thing. He snickered that the downvote mania player continues without reading, but I pointed out that that person seldom actually read anything, commenting without text was a long time trend. He then asked me a few questions that I have my answers for but thought I would pass those on to the rest of you. He is building a mathematical behavioral model for how people act on the internet. I am not sure what else to say about that.

The ratio of site member views and external views has shifted a little. As authors, we get paid for member views. For those who did not catch my previous post, that is why comments are so important. The way to track your external versus internal aspects is quite simple. Pick a time you can be on the site for two straight days. Take a look at your profile’s current account number (your totals) write that number down. Then looked 24 hours later, write that down. That will tell you the average number of points you are earning anyone ay. For optimal results, I will tell you that you are nee to sample that rate for 4 to 10 days. The reason for that is that sties have ups and downs, as do posts and posters!

Once you have your total views and comment points for however long, you measured divide by days and then 24 to get your hourly rate. Then take your hourly rate of points earned and compare it to the views gained on your active posts. Doing this will give you a fresh idea of what the actual internal/eternal reader split is for your posts. There are some variables in this; older posts do still add value, so you are probably looking at about a 10% error rate on this. But the goal isn’t an absolute number, just an idea of how many views you get from other authors on the site, and the elusive external members. With between 60 and 75 active authors, it becomes pretty clear what your ratio is.

Currently, mine is 4 to 1, four external views for every one internal member view.

  2. I can’t keep track of this because I never know exactly when I can be on the computer. I was thinking of doing something else. In the posts I put one query: Are you a member of virily. So I’ll know how many external visitors have viewed the post. I don’t go shopping when I’m tired. If the day is very hot, I prefer to be home. I love the days as they are now. I’m sorry but I will continue to comment on other posts tomorrow. I’m working.

  3. LOL I prefer cloudy days.
    Tuesdays and Fridays are not much different to me coz my job is OTOT.

    I’m not a shopping person and at time prefers to laze around wahahahaha!!

    It’s interesting but then I don’t have time for that now. I need to find a day and write 7 posts and then post one daily to perhaps get a better result … not sure tho
