General Triberr Questions
3 of each.
Your Triberr account currently supports up to 3 Twitter IDs and up to 3 RSS feeds.
Each tribe holds only one twitter ID and one RSS feed combination.
Out of respect to your tribesmates, you should NOT change Twitter ID or RSS once you join to a lesser ones. Example: changing from your primary Twitter ID to your secondary (throwaway) Twitter ID.
You can RANDOMLY earn bones by giving Karma (thumbs up/thumbs down) in various places on the site. The bonfire area and on your tribemates posts in your stream on your home page.
Dynamic tribes will also give you an opportunity to earn bones, as you’ll have the option to share your dynamically generated tribemates tweets and make a few bones in the process.
I would strongly recommend purchasing some too, because they go fast and “earning” them is a rare occurrence. To purchase them, just click on the “bones” link on the Triberr toolbar.
Triberr uses your twitter profile picture.
In order to change your profile picture, you will need to change your twitter profile picture first. Then you will need to stay signed in over on Twitter and go back to Triberr.
Click the Home link on the blue bar at the top of Triberr. Underneath your profile picture you will see your twitter id with two arrows in a circle next to it. Click that. It will update both your profile picture AND your follower count.
The following words are promotional:
free, coupon, deal, bundle, discount, giveaway, hurry, shipping, $, register, shop, sample, savings, freebies, hop, off!, earn, winner, cash, promotion, guarantee, guaranteed, order, win, swagbucks, coupons, deals, winner, winners, cheap, rafflecopter, prize, off!!, off!!!, contest, sponsor, %, giveaways, g!ve, give@way,
To be a good tribemate it is helpful if you use different words than the ones listed, or go in and edit your tweet title on Triberr.
If you have “approved” the post or the “approve” button is still blue, then it won’t go away when you click the “done sharing” button, because it’s still scheduled to send out at a later time. “Unapprove” by clicking the blue button and turning it back to red and then click “done sharing” again.
According to Triberr creator Dan Cristo, ”it’s primarily based on the click through rate of the tribemates who have shared your post.” This of course, also has to do with how MANY tribemates have shared that post at that point. So if only handful have, your quality score will continue to change until they are all tweeted out.
Reach is how many new sets of eyeballs are looking at your content. Well, it’s how many sets of eyeballs have the opportunity to look at your content and might click on your link.
WARNING: Do not get caught up in a numbers game. At the beginning, I had a reach of over 700,000 people amongst the tribes I was in. I felt like I was on top of the world. I was terrified when I decided to leave a few tribes that my stats would fall. But that actually didn’t happen. Guess what? They rose. Because now I am in Tribes that match my niche, their followers are engaged which is truly the most important part– (it’s hard to be engaged with users when you have thousands of people you’re following and you’re not actually “talking” to them, but just spurting out tweets all day to posts you haven’t read.) I wound up with hundreds of new followers, tons of new readers that actively visit daily or near daily and engagement – actually getting to know other bloggers. That was my goal and I was successful. Originally, I was not getting near the number of hits I have gotten in the past several months after removing myself from those huge tribes with no specific niche. I will stress it again, use Triberr wisely – it’s not as much about the reach as you think if you’re not in the right tribes. So while your reach may decrease by leaving a tribe that doesn’t fit, if you join up in another tribe that is more your niche, even with smaller numbers – you’ll watch your stats climb.
The cost is 30 bones and all brand new tribes come with inbreeding already unlocked.
