Technology recap and security warnings!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I want to thank everyone that gave me a link to an old post they were proud of. I shared all of them!

Views are down, that is something I have mentioned since long before the holidays. Everyone is now feeling the impact sadly, in their wallets of views being down. I can, after a month of testing, tell you that high view low comment old posts do well when you edit or share them. So far, I have found an increase of 50-150 views for old posts that are either shared (twitter/Facebook) and edited. High view, high comment edited posts don’t seem to do anywhere near as well.  The goal of our community has to get views up again. Virily is wholly paid on views. The distribution of the money on the site is based on the revenue stream from the diverting the site gets.

Fun Author Tip: Share three old posts to social media a day, and watch your views go up.

Fun Author Tip: set a view goal for each post you make!

I mentioned several upcoming reviews that I need to complete. Life threw me an unexpected curveball, and so based on that; I will be holding off on reviews for a month or so. I will try to get to them in February. I may have a few days of being snowbound in February; I may not. I did finish the new whiteboard project but won’t be testing the scribbit until things settle down.

Please feel free to share a post you are proud of (link), and I will continue to share them! My goal is to get the views for the entire site up. The only way to do that is to get more eyes on the site overall.

The last technology topic going forward is one of security. There are four things. Hackers need to get, to be able to prove they are you easily. The first is your birthday. Don’t ever share your birthday as your actual date of birth is PII. Personally, identifiable information or PII is a thing. Hackers seek. Place of birth, mother’s maiden name, and actual birthdate are all PII.  All of us must be safe out there!

  1. I have a question when I finally can go through all my old posts on virily is it possible to get links to them and then go back and look for more or once I get to the end do I have to keep going back and forth through them that could take ages. Is there any way to make a list of posts I wouldn’t mind sharing again and find them on Virily through search?

  2. I noticed that in the past there has been a huge difference in the value of the viril from month to month, so I remain hopeful for now. A bigger problem is that there are new authors anymore, they could move things a bit.
