On Views

A lot of people are worried that the views on the site are constantly going down. However, some users prefer to engage with view-for-view or comment-for-comment approach. In my opinion, this is not the best strategy, because the more people you reach out to, the bigger the chance they will come back to you, and the more views the site gets overall. Most of us are very busy, but the majority of the posts are not that long, so it only takes a few minutes to read a couple of additional posts each day. 

Here are 5 actions you can take now. They may not have a huge impact immediately but could be a good step in the right direction.

  1. For each view or comment you get from a user, read 3 of their posts. If you have already read all their recent posts, then
  2. Find 3 old posts of this user, or 3 posts of users who have not previously interacted with you.
  3. Once you are done with your routine and you are ready to leave the site, spend a few more minutes to read 5 additional posts from the Latest or any category that interests you.
  4. Share 3 additional posts on social media – yours or by other users.
  5. Feature 3 other people’s posts in your article. 

These numbers are just an example, you can always do as many as you have time for. My point is that with just a little effort we could achieve some improvement. I am sure that most of us already do many of these things, but even a few extra posts a day could help. What do you think? Would these actions be helpful?

Here are a few posts from the challenge My Happy List I’d like to share. Please, if you have the time, check at least 3 of them. I am sure they will make your day a little happier.

  1. Your ideas are great. I’ve tried it before but unfortunately it didn’t work. This only works for the friends we’ve been with since the beginning, including you. I certainly cannot get new visitors even though I look at their post every day.

  2. I am not participating in this strange behavior: the view for view, comment for comment. I read a lot here and do not look if the author viewed my post or not. I comment not so much but I view a lot both old and new posts even if I do not get any virils for that after reaching the limit. Everyone should do their very best, not count their views and comments.

    • I understand that but I specifically explained why these people are included in this particular post. It’s not a list of friends, and these people alone are 12 users. I doubt that anyone will open all the links, let alone if I listed 30 people, for example. Don’t worry, I will keep linking other users’ posts in the future, this is just the beginning. Sorry if you felt hurt in any way because that was not my intent!

    • I need to start from somewhere, it’s difficult to link everyone in just one post, so I try to do it based on categories. It may be subjective, as everything people do is, but those are people who joined my idea and dedicated some of their time to create posts related to it, so it seems logical to me to start with them. I value every view and comment I get, do not doubt that.

    • I honestly don’t understand your last reaction, as I genuinely thank you for expressing your point of view, however I don’t have to agree with it. People can have different opinions and still be friends.

  3. I have tried many things but nothing helps so I also do not bother …. I return comments to those who comment on me … I also don’t know more posts if it helps … I checked with those who give more posts … one or two have commented on the rest but nothing more or less … the damage of the post if no one looks at it … I post every other day one post and I think that’s quite enough for me … maybe another weekend … with new members are nothing like this …. old ones are leaving … unfortunately i don’t know why this is so

  4. Views being down is really bad. Views down mean ultimately the value of a Viril will go down again.

    There are many factors to this issue your five calls to action are a great start.

    We have to be careful, I think there needs to be a balance of virily views and external views going forward.

  5. Ellie I am not much of a social media person so I will read and comment on as many posts as I can. I have been away from the site because of two deaths in the family over the last two weeks. I will do my best here now that I am here full time.
