Overall Difficulty of Tasks: Medium











Website Administrative Support:
  • Watched some of the work update feedback videos, made all necessary changes and then published all reviewed work updates
  • Created a lot of screenshots from TimeDoctor web interface and saved to Future Blog Posts folder
  • Finished Reading BB2-Template-Instructions for the design changes. Although I have read it once, but the document is very important and we need to address this a lot when making actual changes.
  • Please let me know when to start it because I think we might need to change the layout of the sites because as per my experiment, the mentioned method within the instructions did not work for our design. I am not starting it today because today is Friday and if I couldn't complete this today, the website will look weird over the weekend, so most probably I will start this on Monday.
  • Watched many more videos and listened to audio mails from the High priority folder. Most of them were related to Jomvie so I guess those are not applicable now.  
  • I have also started building lost C2 Pages

Adsense Split Testing:
  • Thanks for providing feedback about my Adsense training course. Based on your provided feedback, I have created a new split test where I have used separate ad units for mobile and desktop devices.
  • Removed nofollow noindex from C2 post party dares and merged into EW! Disgusting Truth or Dare Stories

Work Update - Filipino Business Ethics Page Update

Overview
Work Period: Jan 06 & 07, 2015
Hours Worked: 10:20 @$2.22/hour
Money Paid to Me (Virtual Assistant): $20.67*
                          (*Exclusive of $2.27 charged by oDesk)
Overall Difficulty of Tasks: Medium








Filipino Business Ethics Page:
  • You also said in the video that you already have recorded instructions for the following image, but I did not get any such information on any of the previous videos. However, I have added your name at the bottom.
  • Also removed the Jomvie's image from the top call-out box and replaced it with another call-out image.
  • Also made all other changes you advised in one of the high priority videos.
  • Did not distribute it via RSS as you asked, so please have a review and distribute it via RSS Feed.

    1. Craigslist Phone Verification
    2. HTML Photo Slideshow Code
    3. oDesk Team Application
    4. Hourly Jobs
    5.  Adult Truth or Dares on party games website
    6. Flea page on PPG
    7. House page on PPG
    8. Red-Hat Page on PPG

Split-Testing Thank You Pages with Integrate SBI!'s Built-in Functions:
  • Watched the video about split testing thank you page via integrate SBI! functions and also read the help topics. As per my understand, this is possible. But to make this applicable, we must have to upload the source page where we have used the auto-responder form.

    For example:
    If we want to split test the form placed within the 'Sexy-dares-1', then we need to completely upload this page via UYOH.

    An easier way out would be to create BB2 thank you pages and redirect existing thank you pages to that BB2 page.

    For Example:
    we create a thank you page named as "thank-you-sexy-dare-autoresponder.html" and then place the HTML redirect code to the normal thank you page, and obviously we can add any GA experiment code on this BB2.

Feedback About Jomvie's Work:
  • Reviewed Jomvie's work diary and other reports via Timedoctor.
  • Today he has worked for around 6 hours and from his work screenshots I didn't see him working productive at all. There are multiple screenshots where he is not working at all. I am very concerned about his productivity because on Monday 5th Jan, he has worked for 5 hours and today 6 hours and in these 11 hours he productivity is zero.
  • Today he was online via skype and I also tried to contact him over there, but all in vain.
  • Also I didn't receive a work update from him for either working days. Work updates are also not uploaded to Google docs. Well its best to review his productivity on the next working day when we have both his screenshots and previous day work updates, but until now I haven't receive any work updates from him since you have asked me to manage him.
  • During his 11 logged hours, he has spent 6:30 hours on Dropbox, Producteev site and MS Word.
  • I think we should take this seriously, I will try again to get in touch with him tomorrow via email.

Work Update - Adsense Split Tests for Tier and C2 Pages

Overview
Work Period: Jan 05, 2015
Hours Worked: 5:50 @$2.22/hour
Money Paid to Me (Virtual Assistant): $11.67*
                          (*Exclusive of $1.28 charged by oDesk)
Overall Difficulty of Tasks: Medium











Adsense Split Testing:
  • Adsense Test for the List of Dares v2 has been finished and we have a clear winner based on the experiment.
  • Based on the finished results, I have implemented the winner page as primary page, created another variation of it and tested once again via Google Analytics.
  • Also there was some white space at the top of the page, therefore I have researched and implemented a print page function image.
  • Since it is little difficult to remember that what settings have already been tested, therefore I have created a spreadsheet that will help us to track all previous tests and winners. Please have a review of: High Priority folder/Adsense Split Testing/Tier Pages Testing.xlsx
  •  Adsense Split-testing for C2 Pages:
    • Disabled C2 ads setting on the "Dares over Phone? How to play phone Truth or Dare" and Manually placed 3 ad units on this page. Took the previous month data from Google Analytics and put together into a spreadsheet. Please have a review of High Priority folder/Adsense Split Testing/C2-Adsense Split testing.xlsx. I think this is the only way, we can split test C2 pages. 
Work Update Feedback:
  • watched the long work update feedback video and made the necessary changes including:
    • Added the wedgie image submitted by an anonymous visitor to the Wedgies Dare Autoresponder Thank you page.
    • Also included the post script note at the bottom of the thank you page.
    •  Adsense Training Key Features:

      As you have asked me about what I have learned from Adsense training, so here are the key points I learned from the Adsense Training program:
      1. Learned about what adsense units are more profitable and what not. For example a 336x280 is a very profitable ad unit.
      2. Large ad unit sizes have better performance because they also cover smaller ad units. For example, if we use a 336x280 unit, a 300x250 or 250x250 can also be displayed within the same frame.
      3. Some ad units are good performers for the desktop PCs, but not for mobile site versions. For example a 336x280 unit works best for PCs, but not for mobile sites. Similarly 320x100 ad unit is one of the best unit for mobiles and tablets, but it doesn't work well for desktop version.
      4. Based on the above information, we can use multiple ad units for both mobile and desktop versions. For example, we can use a container box with a 336x280 ad unit and then change its setting to show only on desktop version and then use another container box with a 320x100 unit, which is only visible to mobile sites.

        Note: According to GA, on party games site, more than 60% traffic comes from mobile devices.

        Additional Note: I am not sure whether its a workable idea or not. Therefore, I haven't implemented it on any of the pages.
