Entrecard is taking action against bounce rate; which basically means we can no longer drop and run when doing our EC rounds. Dropping and running will no longer earn you credit.
Reducing bounce rate is definitely positive and it aspires towards ultimate success for EC and its members but penalizing me for drop and run by not giving credit is a tad too much. Everybody drops and runs, there is no way anyone can spend so much time reading and commenting on every single blog that drops on our site! And what if we're seriously not interested in the given blog topics? Or what if a blog has not been updated for weeks? We gotta force ourselves to comment and interact?
I am keen to see how this new development works out. So far, this is what Entrecard has to say.
"Starting soon, “dropping and running” will no longer give you credit. We are developing a proprietary algorithm to determine whether or not you engaged in the blog you visited in some way. If you did not engage in the blog, you will not get credit. We won’t be disclosing exactly the algorithm we use, so that people can’t game it easily."
On a happier note, EC did keep their cash out promise to me and I am happy to report that I've received 3 payments from EC so far. It took them almost 2 months to make payment but at least they honoured their agreement so that's good!
And last but not least, here's my monthly show of appreciation for my Top 10 Droppers at Mariuca's Perfume Gallery for the month of June. See you next month peeps and happy dropping!
My Top EC Dropper will receive 1 FOC Ad + 1000 EC Credits
CONGRATULATIONS & THANK YOU
