I’ve been doing a lot of Stumbling lately in the attempt to make my profile stronger to cause each thumbs up I give to drive more traffic. So far it has been working, however, I have come across fork in the road to the top 50 page where I can either continue on the same track or chose to take a look around and decide if it is really the right direction.
Reviews And Fans Matter
A look on the Top 50 Stumblers page reveals some very interesting results about what it takes to get there. As I previously known it is not simply a case of stumbling giving the thumbs up/down to as many pages as possible because the number of reviews and fans you have is clearly important.
Stumbling Videos And Photos Is Vital
What is most surprising is that the number of photos and videos stumbled seems to have a massive impact. One of the Top 50 Stumblers likes just 535 pages, which is more than 700 less than I do. He has the same number of fans and less reviews. The only visible difference is the number of videos he has stumbled, 465 to my 14. The number of ‘thumbs down’ may also be a factor. Therefore according to that Stumbler I need to rate more videos.
Another Top 50 Stumbler has very similar stats to me and only 17 more photos are rated. Is it possible that this small number of photos could make such a big difference? I have rated a meagre 3 photos, so perhaps it is rated proportionally. I.e. that Stumbler has rated over 6x more photos than I have.
What you can take from this simple analysis is that if you want to take on the achievable task of becoming a Top 50 Stumbler don’t mindlessly click the thumbs up/down. Take the time to do it on some videos like this one. You can join me on my quest to the Top 50 page by adding me as a friend and reviewing me, I will review you too.
