  1. Back when T's had 200k+ unique daily visitors,  a third party Web site set up a function where you could pay via Tsu $.


    That website was infected with male are last time I tried to access it and none of the big users cared enough to help me find the person who could sort it.  Which tells me that no one is using Tsu $ for anything other than donations.


    Having been through the process of getting paid, Tsu are not consistent and ban accounts rather than pay out.


    Tsu currently has about 63K unique visitors, the majority of which are in Asia so revenue is less than $500 per day for the entire platform.  And remember that unique visitors number is bumped up by all the people with more than 1 account, so real numbers are probably less than 25k per day.


     If they haven't already used up their investor funding they will sooner rather than later.  Perhaps they plan to sell all the content people posted.  


    My heart goes out to all those still trying to make it work, there are other platforms where payout is easier.

    I didn't understand this. Can anyone explain this?


    You earn money from the value obtained by the people Viewing your content as well as the people viewing the content in your network.  


    Tsu earn money from ads - views and clickthroughs.  The value of the view/clickthrough varies in different parts of the world - generally speaking US based views are worth more than European and African/Asian view worth less than European views.  Why? - it's partly about the amount of discretionary income that people are willing to spend on line and partly about the number of advertisers available (and what they are willing to pay) in the geographic centres.  Some geographic locations like India/Pakistan/northern Africa are known to have bot nests/pay people to click on ads/view pages...  so advertisers get little return (eg sales) from these areas.


    If Tsu's ranking is in the top 5k sites in the US, more advertisers will be attracted in that country (and same goes for the other geographic advertisers) - but I'm not sure how strongly Tsu pursue advertisers directly vs how much they just let programmes like Google AdSense to drive advertising.  

  3. I monitor Alexander where Tsunami has fallen from 4G to 9.9k and the largest user population now include India and Pakistan. 


    Tsu's revenue is based on views and click throughs adjusted for country of viewing.   Their algorithm doesn't state reward for likes and comments.  Instead multiple viewing of the same post may result in other ads being displayed or an increase in number of unique visitors per day.


    If you monitor newly made accounts you will see the number of view bot nests reducing although they are still out there.  And recently I Made it onto a spammers block list - which makes me check all of their accounts harder for scams and copyright infringement. 


    The real issue is about being able to make a significant enough amount of money to make a difference.   I will continue to plug away.


    My biggest fear is that at TSU will sell out.   Even now their biggest users are using a different platform to converse and earn..   and in theory Tsu could have provided that functionality directly.

  4. No it doesn't work like that.  You get the same % split of the revenue earned.  So if the members viewing you page have ad blockers switched on, you earn nothing.  


    You earn a very small % sharing someone's post... do not ad much as sharing you original posts.


    You will not be paid for spam posts, porn or Google images for which you don't own the copyright. 

  5. Hi Loki,  


    The getting of children happens outside of Tsu, not within it.  So if you have a following outside, leverage that to get sign-ups.  The problem for most of us is to find children.  I really have not had any luck at recruiting many active children- it has been all hit and miss at best.  


    I think many of the early networkers capitalised on Facebook and other social media followings.  Evidently Pinterest is currently a good source.  I don't know what will be the next good source.  


    The one thing I've learned is that it doesn't matter if you have 3 or 3,000 children in your network... if they don't post, you don't earn.  And now with groups, if they only post in groups, then you don't earn at all.

  6. I have no way of finding out the latest new users on Tsu.  However, I'm very good at finding the new users through other mechanisms...  so naturally, my name will appear as a follower.  


    I do my best to help new users thrive on Tsu, answering questions and helping them steer clear of the spammers and pornbots...   


    I post original content and try to be active every day.

  7. Just to let you know, the Beta version of Groups is live.  Currently there are two public groups - run by Tsu.. and a couple more...  They have a concept of closed and public groups, with public being the only ones which earn money...  Public Groups will be monetized as follows:

    • 25% = Owner
    • 25% = Split Amongst all Non-Owner Admins
    • 35% = Content-Creating Members
    • 10% = tsu
    • 5% = Designated Charity
  • Create New...
