How long did it take you to get your 'Footness' rating to 1000? What is a 'normal' amount of time to shoot for? Besides rating things, commenting, and posting things, do you have any suggestions for raising your footness level (without spamming)?
I've never paid attention to it.
Just checking now, the highest I've had is 4,339. I've got no idea what I was doing at the time to get it up there.
Scoring systems don't float my boat. For me it's how effective it is as a tool or how fun it is as a community.
I'm just curious about using it as another form of adsense revenue. I plan on getting 1000 footness rating, which will allow for adsense ads on my different 'feet'.
I agree with Darkside. I wouldn't waste too much time right now looking to Tagfoot for revenue. Perhaps in the future, but not right now. They are very, very new, and while their traffic peaked a few months ago, it has been somewhat tenuous of late. Let's put it this way -- Tagfoot gets less than .5% of the traffic that Hubpages gets.
I didn't realise that there was a minimum requirement in 'footness' to be eligible for Adsense. But then again I was involved with the private beta (it's now in public beta) and becoming a 'profoot' was automatic for me.
I think if you bookmark a bunch of your favourite sites, and by that I mean any webpage or website other than something you own, and make a few friends (lets say a dozen) and check out some of the popular links on the frontpage and make thoughtful comments on a few of them (10 or 12 perhaps?) and add half a dozen things to your wishlist you might very well get the 1000 you're after.
Let us know how you go with it.
At the moment the Adsense revenue is very small. But once they're out of beta and word spread I imagine that traffic will pick up. Not as much as what HubPages is getting, but I think it's got the legs to outrun Helium and Gather.
The world is coming to an end! For the first time, I don't agree with Darkside! I'm sorry, but my time is much too valuable to risk on a new website that may or may not take off. I get more traffic from my blogs in a month than Tagfoot does. And I am in complete control AND I get 100% of the revenue.
I've got my own blogs too.
Occasionally I like to put a large wager on a horse with long odds (even though in real life I don't bet on horse racing at all, but bear with me while I use it for this analogy ) if I've had a good look at the horse and I know the trainer.
But the moral of the story is, don't have all your eggs in one basket.
LOL! I don't put all of my eggs in one basket. Matter of fact, I have many eggs in many baskets. Keep in mind that I'm the kind of person that when I head to Vegas, I allot a certain amount of deniro to gambling. Once I win that amount back, it goes in my pocket and I continue to gamble on the winnings only. In other words -- I'm a low risk taker. That's why I'll never be a millionaire!
Moral of the story: When Tagfoot is successful, I will worry about it generating revenue for me.
Yes, I know that. Maybe I should have said "The moral of our story is, we don't have all our eggs in one basket."

I've just joined Squidoo and published my first "lens". My initial impressions of Squidoo are that it's less easy to use than HubPages (from the point of view of actually publishing something rather than just browsing as a reader), and is also slower. I do however like the...

So far I've mostly been relying on writing good content and trusting people to find it, but after a spike this summer, my traffic here at HP has collapsed to some rather depressing levels, considering the number of hubs I have, and I've been thinking maybe it's time to start putting more effort...

In the last couple of months I've been getting a lot more sun than the average geek as I've been helping a neighbour out with their vineyard (after moving out to the country). So when I saw that a Flagship Hub Topic on "how to make wine" was up for grabs I didn't hesitate in staking my...

After reading another info packed hub from Mark Knowles I note he recommends not using the revenue sharing feature of sites such as Shetoldme and snipsly as your adsense code will leave a 'footprint' for google to see you are creating your own backlinks.See: ...

I used to use the revenue to pay bills, but am now living back at home with my parents so my bills are much smaller. I plan on using my revenue to move to California where I can get a higher paying job and hopefully have more time to produce more hubs. It'll take a bit of money to do that so I've...

I'd like to get some feedback from our authors on textlink ads.You've probably seen these on other sites. Usually they appear as double underlines under one or more phrases in the text of an article. When the viewer mouses over the phrase a small advertisement will float over the...
