What started as a new process to discover new blogs and to attract visitors to your blog quickly became power dropping--dropping as many Entrecards as fast as you can. To accomplish this, you turn off image loading in your browser; use the Linky extension to open up to 99 tabs, and click, click, click.
Why Power Drop?
I used several of these power-dropping sites when I first joined Entrecard. The more Entrecards you drop, the quicker you raise the value of your blog. High value blogs are listed first in their categories, are highlighted on the Entrecard Favorite’s page and command more credits for displaying advertisements.
Consequences of Power Dropping
If you quit browsing blogs and start power dropping, you take all the fun out of blogging.
First, the high value blogs require so many credits to display advertising that you either have to power drop or buy credits. Next, you quit leaving comments because you cannot see the visual captcha without image loading. Thirdly, you quit reading because it takes too much time. Lastly, you only visit fast-loading blogs, which are virtually splash pages with no information. Click, click, click. Meanwhile, you notice that your blog is not receiving many comments, your bounce rate (visitors/page views) has significantly increased and you are spending so much time power dropping and managing your Entrecard advertising that you are neglecting your blog.
What To Do
Tomorrow I will share another method of dropping, the consequences, and move toward outlining one solution to the problem.
