The YouLikeHits Blog is here!
I now have a way to communicate with my users on what’s going on with the site!
Make sure to bookmark this blog because in the event that YouLikeHits is having issues this blog should still be up because it’s on a separate server.
The State of Google +1’s
I’m a huge Google fan. I absolutely love the +1 system and YouLikeHits has already offered out over 120,000 +1’s as of the time of this blog posting. The problem here is that Google +1’s affect search rankings. I’m not sure that Google will like false +1’s or +1 exchanges. I will be removing our +1 system within the next few days to prevent any issues with Google.
The State of Facebook Likes
As you know Facebook doesn’t like us giving incentives for Likes. However, without incentives then there’s no real reason to keep Facebook support on YouLikeHits. I’ve readded the Like incentive. Which means for now you can get Likes again instead of just Views. If Facebook wants me to remove it this time I will probably also remove the entire Facebook feature as the “Views” system was just creating a massive amount of Point trading instead of anything actually productive.
Google +1 Replacement
With Google +1 gone we’ll have Twitter, Facebook, Digg, YouTube and Websites. Here at YouLikeHits I love to have variety. It’s an interesting thing to see how social networks can come together through our system. With that being said i’m looking into adding brand new sites to the mix and a couple of them are looking promising! Keep an eye out for new little icons in Your Settings section. 😉
New Points Package!
People have been asking me quite a lot to add more packages with more Points. Those of you that have asked have had your wishes granted. There’s now a 5,000 Point package for the low price of only $35. That’s only 0.7 cents per Point.
Reporting Framebreakers and Protected Twitter Profiles
We’re working on a new [Report] system that will allow you to report framebreakers, bad sites, adult sites and twitter profiles that are set to private/protected mode. These sites and profiles disrupt the flow of the site and are not welcome here. Those sites and profiles will be permanently banned if found and reported. Fair warning!
1st Blog Secret Code
We now have a Secret Code system which will give you Points for a successfully redeemed code. You can find these codes anywhere on the internet so keep your eye out on Blogs, Forums or the Social Networks!

Thanks for reading and I will be posting more updates in the future! Thanks for using YouLikeHits!
