Writing a Good dooyoo Review

Advantages: Money can be made and it is enjoyable to read other people's opinions
Disadvantages: Some people just try to make money
In the Dooyoo community, I think that about half the people are members as they enjoy writing and reading opinions, and the other half simply write for money, churning out up to 20 opinions everyday and keeping strictly to the 75 word limit just to get the 10p per opinion.
However, the people who try to make the money are normally the ones who have an average of just three or four reads per opinion, whereas the people who write just one or two opinions per day but read and rate a lot more opinions are the ones who write the best opinions.
There are many ways to improve your chances of making money on Dooyoo, while also increasing your enjoyment while on the site.
a) The most obvious thing to do is write good quality opinions. There is no real formula for writing good Dooyoo opinions but you just pick it up by reading others. This may mean writing less opinions but you will get more reads from one good opinion than from 5 bad opinions. It helps you and it also helps other people, who don't want to read "not useful" opinions. If someone reads three of your bad opinions they are unlikely to put you in their circle of friends, and therefore will not read your future opinions.
b) The time of day that you write your opinion is also important as you want it to be seen on the front page by as many people as possible. It has been suggested that the best time is about 7pm. However, although many people will be on Dooyoo at this time, possibly reading your opinion, your opinion will be replaced on the front page quickly as many other people will be writing their own opinions. I have found that the best time is around 7:30am (if you can get up that early!), or 9pm when anything up to 7 or 8 people may read your opinion.
c) Write opinions about thing people want to read about. Expensive goods are a useful example, as people are likely to want to read about them before spending lots of money. Issues in speaker
217;s corner are also highly read. I have seen many people writing about cheats for obscure computer games - people are not likely to want to read these.
d) Build up a circle of friends. Many people think that they can just trust someone and they will forever read their opinions. This is not true. It is far more productive to only put people in your circle of friends if you regularly read their opinions - then they will read yours. Also it is best to trust people who have rated at least 500 opinions, as you know that they are likely to read yours.
e) Write good comments. Some people are much more likely to read your opinions if you write a comment about theirs than if you just rate it "Very Useful".
I think I have covered everything here, but if I remember something else I will add it. I realise I have used the word "opinion(s)" a bit too much but Dooyoo is all about opinions. I hope you have found this very useful (if you got this far!)
