How Many Discussions You Can Post/Respond?

I only have like 3-4 hours a day to be online and it is always at night after my son goes to sleep. During that period, I can only manage to start discussions or to respond to others as many as 20 and that is the maximum I can go per day. That is not an easy task and I really struggle to do it. I do wonder, how come some of our friends here can post/respond up to 100 posts per day. I have been here for almost a month and can only manage to have like 300+ discussions but I can see some who are only be here for 1 or 2 days and can have more than 200 discussions. It is amazing and I really want to know how they do it. For members who can really achieve that target within a short time period, do share with me your 'secret' and for the rest, just spend few minutes and tell me your opinion too. Thank you!

I understand your frustrations. It is hard to find alot of decent discussions to respond to. But anyways to answer you question. Up until a week ago, I was only doing about 20 responses a day. Thne this past week I decided I was going to try to do more than that. I am not that far away from payout and so I am really trying to get there. So now I do about 40 responses a day, averaging about 80 to 90 cents a day, and I spend 3 hours on here in the morning and about 4 hours at night. Best of luck!

Hello speedy1279, 80-90 responses per day is considered quite a lot for myself. I only have 3-4 hours per day. To delete my mail alert about new discussion also will take some times. I try my very best to reply to my friends in the list but it is very hard to do. I am still struggling :) However, I am happy today that I already reached my first payout :)

It works it you work at it. I won't make my first payout until August probably, because I just signed up, but it is clear that it is easy to gain more and more by posting quality and spending time doing it. One penny per post, or posting pictures or making sure that I look up things that are important!

I have been spending less time around here and these days I only manage to do around 10 responses a day. I used to do around 25-30 responses a day and it takes me around 3-4 hours because I need to pick the discussion and write my reply in details. I think people can do 100 posts very easily when they don't type too much on one responses, but I wonder if they can do 100 quality responses here. Quality counts here and I would prefer to have good quality instead of a high amount of post count. Wish you luck!

Hello wondericequeen, Yes, I agree with you. I don't think we can give 100 good responses in a day. For me, to think how to respond to a simple discussion also will take me like 5 minutes :) I don't think I can reach that target easily.

I totally agree with you! Quality is important. I want my posts to say something. I like to pick topics that are important to me. I also pick things that my friends or family are going thru and try to get advice. That's helpful to me and to them. Another thing depends on how fast you type. The faster you type, the better amount you can get done!

hello ezzrssi, That is pretty amazing. I never reached that within a day. The maximum is just around 20-25 and it is very hard for me to reach that goal*smile*

Sometimes that takes time, but respond to other's posts and make sure you have something to say I guess! You'll get it done. Obviously ezzrssi works hard at it! Hope you make tons of money! LOL

I think it depends on the time you have to spend and how fast you type. If you can spend more time here, naturally you get to post more discussions and responses. And if you can type fast, then you have a natural advantage. Just do what you can.:)

Hello lordwarwizard, I think that is what I am going to do. I can't go any faster. I opened few windows for my responses. My typing skill is excellent ( I am sure of that) and the only think is that, I need to search and think of the discussion I want to reply. If I have the answer or something to say about it, I will definitely do so... If not, I just stay away :)

Then time is the only factor.

My guess is that when people post that many in a day that the content of the post is very brief and shallow. They do quantity rather than quality. I prefer to respond to discussions that sound like the posting person really wants to know about and that I have some opinion about. I don't do one-word responses, ever. Although I have received a few of those.

Hello youdontsay, Maybe you are right. I tried once to write at least 50 responses a day but it was difficult. I gave up without reaching my target :)

The secret, answer posts. Help people out with your advice. Do what you can. There really isn't a secret, just some people have more time. I've only been on here for maybe a fourth of a day and my numbers are already growing. Post topics that are important and make sure you have something to say!
