Entrecard users: be warned! EC is having a field day dropping all blogs that are not in English. One of my online buddies whose blog is in Hungarian was dropped without much ado by EC. This afternoon I received an email from EC informing all Entrecard members that effective July 1, 2008, Entrecard will be purging from its system the accounts of all members currently operating "Quick Drop Pages". EC admin said they now have a massive list of all violators.

EC admin said the quick-drop pages devalue the essence of EC by motivating members to drop on these quick-loading pages to get credits. Quality blogs are overlooked this way. I tried power dropping for a day or two but found them ineffective since the blogs on the list do not return visits. I find dropping on the list in my inbox the most effective.

I was worried that I too might be penalized so I wrote support. Here is my email.

I do not have a quick-drop page nor do i drop on them. Many find them useless as the urls on the quick drop pages do not return your drop. I have seen my link in some sites that have acknowledged me as one of their loyal droppers. Are those type of links not allowed too? If not, I am powerless to do anything about it.

After about 5 minutes, I received reply from EC support. Here it is.

No that's fine. Don't worry. The only people who have anything to worry about are the people creating the quick drop pages. We wouldn't dare touch your fine blog!

Well that's that then.

  1. Well, everyone got the jitters as one might be mislabeled.

    But as EC said, we need not worry. I am thankful I did not utilize these power drop links. I saw several of them inviting everyone to join them. But I realize that the true value of dropping would then be defeated if I did join them.

    Happy blogging.

  3. Hi!

    The wrongest was, that i worked a lot to collect those EC's.
    but it was more than it deserved.
    Otherwise
    tThere are only few words on my site, and you can find the important things in english too.

    I rather use the Blogcatalog :)
