The movers project explained in more detail

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As we move into the Movers project, I wanted to talk about the four kinds of movers on any site that features writers.

  1. Movers who move their posts
  2. Movers who bring external views to the posts of others
  3. Movers who bring internal (members) opinions to the positions of others
  4. Movers who bring external and internal (members) ideas to their posts

Group One

Of the four, the first one has the least impact on the overall community and the site in any way. They, the author in the first group, make money. They have posted high in the comment lists at times, But they don’t drive the posts of others. How can you tell if that is the case? Respond to a comment left by an author if they reply to 1 out of 5 of your replies, but you reply to all their comments. They are in that first category. You can check quickly to see if the person commenting is a group one author. They never have extended conversations on the posts of other authors, only on their own!

Group two

External views are much harder, ultimately. Why? They bring revenue to the site, but we don’t get credit for external lights. Still, as an author, it is always nice to get views!

Group three

This group starts comment threads. You can tell when they are on your post as they often comment three, four, or more times. That gains you as the author views and comments, and on your posts, you get paid for that.

Group four

The last group is the unicorn. The group that does what the other three do as well. You get the benefit of more views on your post (which helps the site overall) and comments and subjective views as well!

Now testing for these various groupings isn’t easy but can be done. The reality is, however, it is easier for you to realize what type of users you are dealing with. Watch comments, if you reply, and the author never replies, check to see how many posts they make in a period. That is a sure sign between lots of jobs and seldom returning comments that the user is in group 1. Groups 1 author only cares about themselves.

Let’s have some fun with this – rank the four types of movers in the poll.
