Increasing your stats – An elaboration

Let me go into more detail about what I said here.

Okay, so if every post gets 10 views, obviously posting once a week will result in a total of ten views, versus posting every day will get 70 views. The increase is purely because of more posts.

However

My experiments with WordPress actually showed that a longer posting streak will increase the number of views each post gets via the WordPress Reader.

Continuing with our 10 views per post example, that number will increase to 20, 30, or 40 views per post. Instead of ending the week with 70 views, you can end with 280. Also, older posts are more likely to get views as well.

These views aren’t coming from actual real live loyal readers. When you stop posting Every. Single. Day. your stats will plummet, and you have to start all over again. Dead internet, baby.

One of my favorite games is Swarm Simulator, which I like to joke is the pure essence of gaming without any of the filler crap like graphics or plots. The whole point is to watch the numbers get bigger. And bigger. I dunno why, but it’s kind of addicting.

I’ve decided to spend awhile playing the same sort of game on WordPress.
