Feedback about Jomvie's Productivity:
  • I reviewed Jomvies tracked hours with the TimeDoctor, but he still is suffering internet outages. So I think the most important thing for him is to get a proper internet connection and use his personal computer (I also had a mini laptop and I know how much is a pain to use it because it's like working on an old Pentium 1 pc).
  • Regarding edited time, Its really distracting and I suggest that we disable him to add manual time. Instead he should have report us for any manual time and I will upload it to TimeDoctor. I haven't changed the settings yet, will wait for your feedback on this.
  • Update: Thanks for providing more feedback on this. I have now disabled manual time for Jomvie's profile.

  • Invited Jomvie through Producteev, created tasks and assigned to him
  • Watched some more videos from the "Instructions for Jomvie" folder, created task plan, uploaded to producteeve and assigned to Jomvie.
  • Jomvie was having trouble working with TimeDoctor as he was unable to use it properly, so I discussed this with him via Skype and have explained him how to use the software.

  • Also discussed other tasks with him and asked him to follow the tasks via Producteev team management software.
  • Uploaded some of Jomvie's reviewed work updates to Blogger diary
  • Watched some of the high priority videos, most of them were work update feedback videos so I published all reviewed work updates. There were also some tasks for Jomvie, which I uploaded to Producteev. 
  • Watched the video from the folder "Instructions for Jomvie" and uploaded the task to Producteev.

Adsense Split Testing
  • About Dares for Truth or Dare-2 Adsense Split-testing, Since the previous split test has been ended, therefore I have created a new split-test based on the instructions provided by you.
  • Truth-or-Dare-Questions-1 test has also been ended. Here are the final results:
  • Since the test has been ended and we have a clear winner, so I have created another split test.

PPG Adsense Review:
  • I have closely reviewed PPG site via Google Analytics and found that all Adsense earners are BB2 pages. Although I have replaced the Adsense shtml files, but still UYOH pages do not contain any GA Tracking code. That means that Google Analytics cannot track any Adsense data for uploaded pages.
  • Experiment: As an experiment, I downloaded a page (Consignment), added PPG Google Analytics tracking code and re-uploaded it to site-central. Now this page has GA tracking code and we will have to wait if it earns some revenue because this is the quickest way we can add the tracking code on any UYOH pages. I have also replaced the top-adsense unit code.

Ideal-Helper Administrative Support:
  • Uploaded all content and images to tier 3 page draft "Filipino Virtual Assistant"
  • Also implemented multiple tier breadcrumb navigation on the bottom of the page

  • Regarding a high priority video where you asked me how to change company title in Timedoct, here is the process:
    • Go to » Settings » Company Settings 
    • and changed company details
TimeDoctor Offline Testing:
  • Disabled my internet connection for 1 and half hour and tested offline time. The experiment ended with a success and Timedoctor updated the logged activity along with screenshots when I turned my internet connection on.


Note: As I turned my internet off, therefor I uploaded 1.5 hours as manual time on oDesk. During this time, I watched several videos that you have recorded and saved into Instructions for Jomvie folder.

Adsense Split Testing:
  • One of the experiment has reached pass 3000 visits, so now we have a clear winner (Original Page).
  • Since the experiment was over, therefore I created a new experiment based on the instructions you have given in another high priority video.

Other Administrative Support:
  • Although I have enabled comments on Ideal-Helper, but comments form is still not visible under any of the posts. Perhaps it will take some time to get it updated.
  • As you asked me in one of the videos, I have added an attention call-out box at the end of the thank you page for the new-sexy-dares AR.
  • Create a clone page of "sexy-dares-1"
  • Did not create an experiment for this page because I don't know how to track thank you pages via Google experiments. Also both pages (original and clone) have the same signup form and therefore if someone signs up to it, how will we differentiate the source page?
  • I have also tried to research this on SBI! forums but didn't get any helpful post.

Work Update - Ideal-Helper Split Test

Overview
Work Period: Dec 11 & 12, 2014
Hours Worked: 10:00 @$2.22/hour

                          (*Exclusive of $2.20 charged by oDesk)
Overall Difficulty of Tasks: Medium












Ideal-Helper Adsense Split Test
  • Note: Google Analytic code was not correctly set up on Ideal-helper pages, so I have reset the code correctly.

Ideal-Helper Monetization 
  • Monetized the following Ideal-Helper Pages.

C2 Split-test
  • Previous C2-utility template did not work, so I re-visited the instructions, searched forums and re-built the C2 submission shell. 
  • Then successfully added manual Adsense ads (using Sbi-Include) to the experiment page.
  • However, the experiment failed because on submission pages I am unable to added Google Analytics Experiment Code. As per Google analytics requirement, this code needs to be place immediately after the <Head> tag, which is not possible for individual C2 pages. If we do so via C2-utility page this will be implemented on all C2 pages.

Team Management Software
  • To manage Jomvie, two major problems I am facing are:
    1. Having Regular Skype Sessions with Jomvie: This is mostly because of time-difference between my and Jomvie's time-zone.
    2. I am not 100% aware on what tasks Jomvie is working, what tasks and pending and why and what tasks are lined up.

      For this I want to use a team management software where both of us can see, assign and track his tasks. Asana is one of the popular team management software, but that is very expensive. I have researched and experimented a free software (Producteev) is a free one and I think it will work well for a small team like ours
PPG Site Update
  • Although you've asked me to create another split test on flea page, but I am unable to create another test on the same page because:
    • A test is already running on the same page, so If I create another test, already running test will end. So we have to wait til the exiting test ends
Other Administrative Support
  • Watched the video about the cooperation between me, you and Jomvie and took notes from it.
  • Listened a video from Jomvie's .instructions folder and will discuss it with Jomvie tomorrow.
  • Within party games site-central, I have moved all clone pages into a sub-folder.
  • Also rearranged all folders within the page manager and moved all pages into their concerned T2 folders.

Work Update - Adsense Training Course and Split Testing

Overview

Money Paid to Me (Virtual Assistant): $20.67*
                          (*Exclusive of $2.27 charged by oDesk)
Overall Difficulty of Tasks: Medium







 




Adsense Training Course and Split Testing
  • Watched the video that you have recorded in order to split test Adsense units on the top traffic pages.
  • Completely followed the Optimizing Adsense online training course   
  • Built clone pages for top 10 party games site pages (8 tier pages and 2 C2 pages)
  • Then created Adsense experiments for all pages.
  • Since we cannot use Adsense code on C2 pages, therefore I re-created the C2-utility template (preview template was deleted) and then used adsense units on these pages.
  • Note: Since Sbi-utility template takes some time to implement changes therefore changes are not live yet. So I will create experiments for these 2 Content 2.0 pages as soon as Sbi-utility template changes are live.

    Additional Note:
    Not all of the top traffic pages have adsense ads, we already have removed on some of them and some of them were showing SBI! backup ads, so I did not include such pages into the experiment.

Other Administration Support:
  • Had a Skype session with Jomvie and discussed various ongoing tasks where he needs my input.
  • Reviewed some more vacation transcripts and moved them to the Philippines_Vacation folder.
  • Watched the video regarding the cooperation between me, you and Jomvie. I will review the video one more time before implementing it because at the moment I am also far behind him and honestly speaking that I am not 100% sure that on what tasks he is working nowadays, what task are pending and what tasks are finished. I will have to make a work plan.
