A post containing three unrelated traffic exchange facts.
Fact number one:
Earlier today at my what has become my favorite online battleground, more properly referred to as ThumbVu, I managed to put on a display of such abysmal thumbmastery I almost hesitate to share my woeful ineptitude with you all.
I brought disgrace to the battlefield and had fellow Thumb Masters laughing out loud at me when I brought such a new low to this warrior standard that I shall henceforth be known as the worst Thumb Master ever. Confused? Well just look at these shocking stats:
griff Title earned on 2011-05-19 02:37:01
griff Title lost on 2011-05-19 02:37:01
Yes, that is right, I managed to lose the title so rapidly that the Thumb Master timer didn’t even advance by a single second. I hang my head in shame!
Fact number two:
Meanwhile over at EasyHits4U. Just what is it with them and the dreaded math tests they insist on inflicting upon us? Everybody hates these problems and yet Easy Hits still refuse to scrap them from the surfbar. Instead EH4U will only go as far as to make them appear less often. So they have their nice bright and shiny new icons and every now and again, thrown in for bad measure, is a rotten apple of a math problem. Thanks Eh4U.
Here is what they have to say on the subject:
“Couple of weeks ago we asked your opinion on our new surfbar… as you asked, math tests will not be shown too often anymore and test pictures have already been enlarged to their maximum. Without doubt, surfing process has become even easier at EasyHits4U. At the same time new surfbar is even more complicated for bots than before.”
Yes it is good that there are fewer math tests EH4U but I think, if you go back study your customer feedback just a little more carefully you will find that the request was no math tests and not fewer math tests.
Fact number three:
Splash bash site Sweeva has added a new ‘favorite’ button so that each day you can select the site you like best. I love this idea as it makes the Sweeva experience even better for all users. Surfers get more interaction with the site by choosing their favorite site and advertisers get even greater feedback.
This is how they explain the new feature:
“While surfing Sweeva you’ll now find a “Favorite” button. Use this button to let us know what your favorite page is
while surfing every day.
“You can only favorite one site per day but you can change it as you surf. So if you find a better site later on you can
favorite the new site! We are going to use these as votes to award the best sites in rotation every day. So make your vote count!”
Well done Sweeva.
