17 Apr 2007 (Tue)

Note: Finding the Top 20 posts for 2007 in Tomorrow.sg took some effort because:

  • “Distasteful 98.7 FM Shock Jocks” above is the only 2007 top post displayed under the Popular section on the main page.
  • One 2006 post (”SEX Party” with 48879 reads) and five 2005 posts (namely, “Sarong Party Girl Un-saronged”, “Singapore Sex Scene”, “Legs Wide Open”, “Taking upskirt photos – and tio caught!”, “The Bloggers.SG T-Shirt Design Competition”) are still displayed under the Popular section on the main page.
  • It’s very curious though how three posts with low reads (and not any of the above 19 top posts) are displayed under the Popular section on the main page: namely, “To Join or Not to Join” [the civil service] (172 reads), “bad feng shui in farrer court” (108 reads), and “Lift-Upgrading Projects in progress are dangerous” (73 reads).

    The top posts from Ping.sg doesn’t really reflect fully what the community likes. Even though naturally sex-related posts would appeal to majority of the Ping.sg users, but some of the money-related posts don’t really come from within the community, or even from within Singapore.

    Due to the incentives that a blogger gets from promoting ping.sg/read/ links, some of the money-related internet marketing bloggers are posting the ping.sg/read/ links onto forums or even as permalinks on their blogs to boost their pongs.

    Something would have to be done soon to reflect on local interests more. I would do something about it in May.

    Tomorrow.sg’s read count is based on number of people who go into the posting itself. It does not count the number of people who read the entry from the main page. It also doesn’t count the number of people who click the link hyperlink.

    Uzyn,

    Once you’ve successfully sifted out the money-related blogs, I think we’ll be left with just the sex blogs … hehehe

    Am I the only one who’s firmly against sex-oriented or Internet marketing blogs? Sex-oriented blogs do not reflect well on ping.sg, I’ve been saying this from day one. And most Internet marketing blogs do not add anything to the community. Just my two cents.

    Veron, I agree with you. By the way, check out the Ideas page on Ping.sg and you’ll see:

    (1) Your idea is currently the most supported with 9 votes and 7 comments.
    (2) My suggestion, “Add Thumbs Up and Thumbs Dn buttons for readers to “digg” or “bury” a Ping.” Vote for that and then we can collectively “bury” sex-related and Internet Marketing posts.

    DK, Uzyn, thanks for the clarifications.

    Miss Loi, so it looks like. :-p

    In Ping.sg I tend to avoid those title with ’sex related’ titles cos most of the time in the title is just meant to draw crowd but the content it in is just .. plain.

    sex does sales. I also just took a look at ping.sg top posts few days ago. Seems like the SEX is the most attractive topic.
