    Got Bots? 

    Poll results and some interesting facts.

    pollresults

     

    According to this recent poll of members, a vast majority type a greeting or use the chat interface to type “hello”. That’s funny, not at all what I’m seeing. In fact, the majority that enter my room are the silent type. The chat can be dead for hours and only silent lurkers would manage to stay. They could stay for extended periods of time, too. I’m talking record lengths of time.

    I used to think it was crazy to even entertain the notion that the sites could be using bots to make our rooms appear fuller. Why would they do that? They had traffic. They still do. Traffic that no longer pays .. or chats. Hmmm. Perhaps the real question then is why wouldn’t they use bots? It serves two purposes; to keep the performers attentive to the room should a real member enter and want to go private (the sites do still need our content), as well as giving the illusion, to what little members are left floating around in the tumbleweeds, that the site actually has traffic. The same type of thinking that goes into why a restaurant seats its first customers by the window. If the place looks busy, more people will want to eat there. The only difference is that a restaurant can’t fake its customers. A site can and it’s easy as pie to set up.

    Why would they fake customers instead of just buying traffic?
    Simple answer: It’s us camgirls that drive traffic to the sites. All of us, collectively, from our social media accounts like Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc.. The sites can keep those advertising dollars snug in their pockets. Besides, the sites don’t survive on what little traffic comes and spends on us. It’s our content the sites want. They couldn’t care less whether we make money or not. It makes no difference to them or their off-shore bank accounts.

    So, would they or wouldn’t they? I already know the answer. This is just food for thought for anyone with lingering doubts about how shady the sites can be.

    Have you experienced the same behaviour in your chatroom? Are the stats shown in this poll reflecting the opposite of what you’re seeing? Post a reply.

      I couldn’t agree more. I am noticing more and more traffic seeming “bot” like. Lots of girls will deny deny deny and say that they are real people. I certainly don’t think so..

    The Camgirl Calendar 

    It truly is amusing to see the excuses fly in adult industry message board forums, as soon as someone posts a complaint about how slow such and such a site is (Streamate, for example). Having been in the industry for 16+ years now, I can say with absolute certainty, that there are no trends with respect to overall traffic. There are far too many obstacles to factor in where traffic is concerned . The one day of the year that I have ever found to be consistently slow is Super Bowl Sunday. Regardless, in those forums, someone always seems to have the answer, often posted in a strangely defensive yet convincing manner.

    Several years ago, I wrote up a list in a message board forum of a site I used to work on, filled with excuses for why cam sites can be slow, every month of the year. Logically, traffic should be slightly affected by these events but not to the extent we were seeing it. The same applies to today. Another thing I always kept in mind, knowing this industry as well as I do, is to  always consider the source. If that source has something to say that might require some credibility to be believed, then perhaps they should put a handle to it; one that people can easily find online. <– I believe my insinuation came across loud and clear.

    Here’s my newly revised list of excuses for slowness. 12 months worth. Enjoy!

     

    January – New Year’s drinking, paying off credit card bills from the holidays. Superbowl (I’ll give this one some credit).

    February – Valentine’s Day (diamonds aren’t cheap!).

    March – Spring Break (eatin’, boozin’, tattooin’).

    April – Taxes, planting flowers (and weeding can just plain poop anyone out!).

    May – Mother’s Day.

    June – Father’s Day. School’s out!

    July – National birthdays (1st and 4th of July celebrations for Canada & U.S.A.). Also, this thing the industry likes to refer to as “summer slowdown”.

    August – More of that “summer slowdown” bs, along with the fact that people are trying to enjoy their last weeks of summer.

    September – Back to school. Labour Day weekend, too.

    October -Canadian Thanksgiving. Halloween (the only month of the year when chocolate prices soar!). Actually, this is true <–

    November – The start of Christmas shopping. U.S. Thanksgiving.

    December – Christmas is coming ! Christmas is coming! Holiday travel, planning, parties.

     

    Leaves very little time for us, huh gals? Somehow, miraculously, the sites still seem to thrive, despite all this. I recant what I said about them being webpimps. They’re not. What they are; magicians! One trick I’d like to see is where they’ve hidden all our money. 😉

     

    Happy holidays everyone!
