I dropped two articles yesterday ... and both were buried and didn't make it to top news and politics which was very unusual ...... not clear how that happens .... it has happened before though .... and just as I'm not clear on the fluctuation of earnings in relation to analytics over the past year or so .... I'm not clear on what goes on under the covers in the back room of newsvine .... are computer programmers running the show? is there any investment being made in improving newsvine?
Manual interventions and administrative subjectivity? ... the arbitrary application of procedures or constraints or even censorship?
That's all I have say. What has occurred ... nothing more ... unanswered questions .... since emails are often not responded too ... that seems to be a policy when touchy questions are asked and not just a coincidence ..
All I know is just has what occurred ... since most newsviners really DON'T know how the black box works (except perhaps the "insiders"?) ;-)
Something(s) are not smelling right in the back room. Are we actually in Denmark?
ps: I'm not here for ppc and check earnings every few months against analytics out of curiosity .... but I suppose some here might be making enough to buy coffee .... am I missing some change bulletin on how earnings works? I see now that adsense are interspersed with comments ... was there an announcement I missed? who gets the clicks?
pss: one other thing that irks me is being black balled by the newsvine main group and the politics group ... I've made some mistakes posting to groups but nothing unusual ... there is a certain amount of mean-ness and bias involved here .... in my opinion ...
then again it seems many acknowledge that newsvine certainly is a republic and not a democracy ;-) and they capitulate as we all do
just some thoughts
