Thread: Uhm. This is either really good, or really bad.

  1. #1

    Default Uhm. This is either really good, or really bad.

    Ok, I started doing this and it seemed to work out real well, but i want to make sure i am NOT breaking the rules!

    Someone please let me know if this is allowed. cuz it is kind of a trick.

    On one of my blogs, i have some downloads. I tried an experiment with one of my downloads.


    Its a Download split into 5 different parts. so the user must download ALL 5 part of the download in order to have the whole thing. Well I Put an Extra link in. Part 6.

    Part 6 isnt really a part of the file, its just a link. that takes them to myspace.

    I did this to get an extra click on my download.

    Well, What I THINK is happening, is many people are getting confused.

    So when they click the 6th link, and are transported to myspace instead , they think something odd happened, and go back to my page and re-clink the 6th link. **lol**

    SO, basically i confirmed this by looking at my stats.
    Files 1 through 5 each got around 500 Clicks.
    File 6 on the other hand, got about 750 clicks.

    IS THIS OK?

    Im not breaking any rules by getting these extra clicks by doing this am I?

    Please respond. thanks

    you cant break a rule, and then cover it up by changing it.

    Not good if you want to have a reputable blog.

    Just make sure you have, in small font, that part 6 doesn't exist. You know, like how business people always do it. So you can just tell them to go read it and it was there the whole time, but still, not a good way if you want to become a reputable blog/site.

    Screw reputation lol. well i changed the link slightly. Now when you click on the 6th link it takes you to A Page that says ...

    "Thank your for supporting the site. The 6th file does not exist, nor is needed, but by clinking this link You've supported This site! Thanks!"

    and the funny thing is, at the bottom of the page i put a link that says "Continue" which take you back to the main page of the site, but that link is also a linksbuck intermission ........ lol...

    and now ive tripled my clicks and it seems to be working. lol


    But yah, out of all the downloads on my site, this is the ONLY one I do that on. It just happends to be the most popular as well lol

    you got an extra 750 clicks but it confused your visitors and some of them probably didnt download it because they thought your link was broken...and you might have lost some visitors all together...
