Missing Point Again- My Stupid Blunder

040320146583

Yes, it happened again today.

I had just published a blog post at 2.15pm (Malaysia time) but I wasn’t given 50 points immediately.

Honestly, it was my blunder because I knew that I had to publish my new post AFTER 3pm local time which is 1am USA time.

Let me explain this problem.

Remember that in the past I had send constant messages to Sir @Sheridan about my missing points? In a week, I could experienced 3 times of filling up the missing point forms that one of our fellow blogger also noticed it.

It was Blogjob server problem. I finally realized the problem that had occurred was due to the time zone.

Yes, when the time zone hits at 12am, I would experience missing points almost 80%. If I am not wrong, it is the time slot that changes and maybe the internet line wasn’t quick enough to excess the points into my account.

After several times of sending messages to Sir Sheridan 3 times in a week of the same problems, I finally decided to test out at different time slot.

I managed to “catch” the most suitable time slot which had reduced the frequency of Missing Points occurrence.

  1. Malaysia time before 12pm = USA 10am 
  2. Malaysia time after 3pm = USA 1am

As long I do not publish any post at 2pm Malaysia time ( USA = 12am ) I am SAFE .

However, the last few days I had been too busy with gardening and household chores that I got panicked when I couldn’t reach my daily goal 150 points.

In order to hit my goal for the day, I quickly posted 3 blog posts without looking at the time slot.

Which is the reason why I had to admit that it was my mistake, a stupid blunder that I could had avoided if I had looked at the time before I hit the Publish button.

Sorry again Sir Sheridan, I had to trouble you again to look into my account for the missing points.

It is fortunate that most writers do not experience missing points at any time when publishing their posts.

I guess I belong to one of those unlucky writers, at the wrong time and the wrong place.

Tips to Increase Internal and External Traffic to Your Blogs

 

There isn’t any 100% guarantee tips that would make your traffic flow to your blog posts but I always try to get some useful tips from my fellow writers who are experienced writers online.

I used to have a bub-dad at Bubblews by the username @Javaman74.

He is a 74 years old writer with great experience in writing tips for novice earners, travelling tips and he was a very helpful ” visual dad” to me.

After leaving Bubblews, I concentrated at Blogjob but my traffic was low.

 

 

Hence, i decided to stick to  @Javaman74 tips and this is how I managed to earn 150points daily by following diligently his tips.

10 Tips to increase internal and external traffic to your blog posts:

  1. After I had published the first post, I will look into my notification lists; reply to those writers had mentioned me, left comments on my post.

 

2. Then, I will read the latest posts for those writers who had liked my first post of the day.

Sometimes, I may get a handful of likes depending on the topic.

Sometimes, I may or may not receive any comments.

However, I would invest an hour of my time to read blog posts, definitely leave my insightful comments on at least one of the post that I had read.

 

3. Next, I share a link of my first post of the day with the share Medias which I must admit, helped my earnings to increase and the traffic flow too.

I share a link at tumblr, linkedin, stumbleupon, facebook, twitter, giggle plus, pinterest and blogger.

 

4. My next step is to look at the Blogjob main page.

I am pretty picky on the titles.

I read these articles that I fancy or matched my interest.

Approximately, 20 posts to read,  likes and comments which takes two hours of my time.

If I were to click like without reading or leaving comments, that takes around 20 min but I don’t earn much with serial liking.

Out of 20 posts of reading, I earned another 10 points, not much but I can’t complain.

 

5. Finally, I read my best followers, the writers whom had followed me.

We frequently interact with each other daily on the profile wall or create a private group.

These are Philippines, Italy, Malaysia and USA writers. More followers, more traffic coming in.

I noticed that USA and the Philippines writers gave me my extra boost compare to other Asian writers.

 

After I had reached my goal of 100 points,I will publish my 2nd post of the day.

That makes 150 points per day, the maximum limit for me.

The same routine goes on again.

Tell , how do you increase your traffic flow to your blog posts?\
