Royal Surf Admin Under the Weather

July 3rd, 2007

The admin of Royal Surf has been slowed down somewhat by weather-related issues recently due to widespread flooding and severe thunderstorms across many areas of Texas. Meanwhile, there is an ongoing referral contest and some concern that promoters of the exchange may not be referring “quality” members. However, with at least 200 pages of surfing required before a referral can be officially credited, the problem of “tire kickers” inflating the statistics should be significantly reduced compared to most other traffic exchanges. Here is the latest update:

Greetings karlonia,

I’m running a bit behind due to all the rain we’re getting in Northeast Texas. I’m debating on whether or not I need to get an ocean liner for us here. ;-) If the rain keeps up, we’ll have enough water on the ground to float one. :D

We need the rain. Goodness knows we do, given the fact that summers are usually very hot and dry here. So, I’m not complaining…except for the fact that the saturated ground is interfering with our phone and cable lines. Makes working on the Internet a challenge. Call me old-fashioned but when it’s thundering and lightening, my computer gets shut down…and I don’t talk on the phone, either.

Anyway, onward and upward while the weather’s allowing me access. :-) We’re due to get “slammed” again later today.

RoyalSurf is now entering the fourth week of the Six Weeks of Referral Competition. I have received a couple of disturbing reports that we have a member who is pushing the competition among his membership bases in some other exchanges. This is all well and good, except for the fact that he does not seem to care about generating quality members. He’s more interested in winning the prizes. If I find out who this person is (no one has supplied me with a name yet), he will be disqualified unless I have proof that he is bringing in people who will use the exchange the way it was intended to be used.

Remember, for the six week period of competition, in order for the final winners to be determined the referrals MUST surf at least 200 pages on the exchange. If this requirement is not met, then the referral will not be counted. No exceptions. So be sure to encourage your referrals to qualify and completely activate their accounts in order for you to place for one of the top three prizes.

Here are the Top Referrers in the contest at this time:

1st User 783 14
2nd User 1585 10
3rd User 536 9

I’d also like to remind you that everyone can check and approve any new URLs that they add to RoyalSurf. It is not necessary for you to wait for me to do that for you. So please check them as you add them. It would be of great help to me so I don’t have to do those for you. ;-)

To keep this short and sweet, I will finish it out with your current statistics:

Credits Unassigned: 4500.8
Banner Impressions: 135.005
Text Impressions: 155.005

Make sure that you do login, check your sites, banners and text links…and assign those credits and impressions. We want to show your offer to others, but we can’t do that if you fail to assign the credits/impressions. Take a few minutes and do that now. And surf for a while. There’s been some very new and interesting offers come out recently. Check them out! This is why it’s called a “traffic exchange” and it’s very important that we don’t lose sight of that fact. I personally like to see what’s out there, and what my “competition” might be offering. It keeps me motivated and up to date on the “latest and greatest”. I highly recommend that for anyone who is determined to be an online business person.

Happy 4th of July to those who celebrate it. And I hope that our Canadian members had a wonderful Canada Day this past Sunday. :-)

As always, I am simply an email/contact request away should you need assistance. Please bear with me while we “weather” out this stormy season. I may be slow getting back to you but I will, as time and weather permits.

Catherine Heiter, Admin
