My ‘Followers List’ has been upgraded!

Endelig har jeg fullført første fase av et omfattende arbeid jeg skulle ha gjort for flere år siden! Min liste – automatisk generert av WP – inneholdt navn/nick på kontakter som i noen tilfeller hadde registrert seg så tidlig som i 2012 !!! (Og omfattet nesten 1000 navn!)

Idag inneholder min liste mindre enn 200 navn! Og jeg har IKKE slettet oppføringer som har vist aktivitet i løpet av de siste 3 måneder! Men – jeg har også tatt vare på de som har gitt blaffen og som kanskje hadde en ganske annen agenda med sin registrering: Markedsføring!

Klok av skade har jeg nå laget et system hvor jeg måler aktiviteten til nye ‘følgere’ over 2-4 måneder før jeg innrømmer fast opphold! 🙂 Jeg skal ikke tilbake til en situasjon med tusenvis av følgere som jeg ikke aner noe som helst om. Men jeg håper jo at dette skal virke postivt for alle?!

At last I have more or less completed an extensive job that I( ought to have done several years ago! My list of ‘followers’ – automatically generated by the WP programmers – including names/nicks on all my contacts, of whom some registered as early as in 2012!
(My list included close to a thousand names!)

Today my new and upgraded list includes less than 200 names! And – I have NOT deleted any name where movements have been registered over the last 3 months! But I have also saved the names/nicks deleted; the names of those that never showed up or perhaps  clearly had a different agenda with regards to their registry: Marketing purposes!

Taking my experiences to mind, I’ve made myself a system where I follow new subsribers closely over the first 2-4 months before i grant a full and permanent membership! 🙂
I’m not going back to a situation with thousands of followers, of whom I know nothing what so ever about! But I really hope, this will turn out in a positive way for all?
Let’s make this work!

  1. Good to have a clearout every now and again my friend.. I deleted over 100 a few weeks ago.. And no one was the wiser.. as they never visit 🙂

  2. I do this on WordPress and social media a few times a year. It’s always nice to clean things up a bit

      That is a very good idea. The problem is that you may chuck put somebody just taking a break for 3-4 months.
      I want to be absolutely sure when I delete somebody. But when it is obviously some business marketing their own services it’s much easier!

    Very interesting, thank you. I must find the time to do the same job 😉

    • Seenorway says:

      I think most of us ought to! And I’ve been around as a active blogger since 2005.
      That ought to count for something? Looking at my own figures and earlier experiences in this field, I feel safe to warn you that 85% or more of your list of followers are long gone! Not because they don’t like what you publish, but because they really don’t have the time nor stamina to drift a blog effectively over time! Or because they had no intention of following you in the first place!

    Good for you, Svein! I did the same and happy about it. Still get new followers that I screen and just know some of them only want followers back. Delete, delete! Have a great weekend! Christine

    • Seenorway says:

      Yes, Christine, I know from years back that 80% of those that have ambitions for a blog give it up within the first 12 months! Of cours, this as a disasterous effect on the base of followers because no one take the trouble to delete them before closing the blog for the last time. So they’re forming the ghost squad! 🙂
      Well – done is done! mAnd by cutting my followers list from 1000 till less than 200, my traffic volume has suprisingly increased by 65%! So why didn’t I do this before?!

    Hi Dina,

    The funny part – and perhaps unexpected to most – is thaty after having cut my followserfs from a thousand and down to 200, my trafficc volumes has increased with more than 65% – documenting what you just said! I thing a great many of us ought to do just that! (But it’s one hell of a job!)

  6. Seenorway says:

    Why should they talk to you? They don’t talk to me either. Large digtal bodiues has grown so much thay can no longer keep up a dialogue with their clients! And that will mean a future downfall. You just wait and see!

  7. Good idea!! If I can only get WP to fix the errors you have been experiencing! Urrr!!!!

  8. Dina says:

    I have done the same. After five years of blogging I was amazed to see how many blogs I was following. And how many are not blogging any longer! It’s easier to keep in touch and being updated with one fellow bloggers with a list of only active bloggers.
    Ha en god helg!
    Hils fra oss i North Norfolk,
