Too bad 'coz I'm pulling the plug on this thing.
Now that I've said that, I suppose my RR's average is going to go even more downhill. Still smelling fishier than ever.
This shows that You didn't read me ever when I spoke about two things:STRENGTH
of referrals... because these all together are making AVG (not just one of these).
Note: only one of these keeping managed is equivalent with "half management"... and causing not the best AVG for sure...
I told many-many times on old forum that AVG = Strength x Activity
If You would sort them example by Referrals Since and open their graphs then would see what I'm talking about Dear... when I say You have "sleepers".
if You manage only by HALF of needed then will have only the HALF of success - that's it...
and "complain" helps nothing - especially if You have those refs mostly who are clicking for few days and then just keeping their account alive...
I name those refs "sleepers"... They causing very-very big fluctuations to those renters who have them in a big number (60-70% or more)
who have them in near to zero number those have uncomparable less fluctuation... and better success!
WHO ARE SLEEPER REFS ---> those who click to You in almost every 4-5 days at once only about 1-2 ads ---> how can be those caugth by activity filtering?
Answer to this is:
only and just by this way You CANNOT them manage as it needed - so need that other part of management too
who has strength 4.5 and activity 44% that renter will have 1.98 AVG - and absolutely doesn't matter if have 5000 refs or just 3000
if have strength 3.5 only and activity also 44% then will have 1.54 AVG - so the activity is same (and management by that too) but have less
- why -> because he just looking for activity and absolutely not for STRENGTH
Just try to make measure of strength ---> You will see what I'm talking about (as on old forum I spoke about it "100 times".)
And now look at these:
1) how to check this strength ---> simple - before ads reset count all the clickers on that day (by openning some refs graph to localize this)
and simply make this: clicks / clickers
(if have 7000 clicks and clicked 2000 refs from 5000 refs then strength is only 7000/2000=3.5)
if this is too low it means that You have lot of those "sleepers" who are clicking sometimes only 1-2 ads...
2) how to improve strength ---> as first try to sort them by Referral Since to see the oldest refs (probably there are lot of sleepers) and
open their personal graph by clicking to icon: (i)
and if see this what I told then need to recycle them...
3) always look after to NOT overrecycle
- because then will have mabye lot of those who are that kind of as are clicking only in first week hard but later slowdown -> this will cause DROP
so, never recycle in 1-2 days ALL who are cought as sleepers or any kind of bad clickers...
make selection through a week at least and
then after that will be enough only to KEEP them in a good condition!
I have optimum with daily about 2% - max. 2.5% recycling - no need more at all if have reached this optimum by refs condition...
AVG is very-very STABLE - it fluctuates only a little - cause it is not depending on sleepers and not causing me drop even overrecycling.
If members have bigger fluctuation this is most clear showing that they have too much of those sleepers - and also very low strength...!
Optimally these things need to be part of management !!!
Especially at beginning this takes more time to deal with it ---> but how else way we can have better results - only complain is not making it better for sure!
I just tried to explain it a little bit more...
