    Dear Bloggers Who Hold Giveaway's/Competitions 30th Oct 17 at 1:56 PM
    First thing is if this post is not allowed on MSE then please BG's/forum team take it off.

    I don't know if you are aware that since April when twitter tightened their spam filter lots of compers not all have been put on what's called a shadowban. This means that twitter mutes your account so your tweets are not seen by many people at all.

    Thanks to a lovely blogger who had a look at one of her comps she is running to see if my tweet entries are showing in the raff as I am shadowbanned got back to me & said no, they are not showing in the raff & she could not even find my twitter name on twitter.

    So unfortunately some people can not enter your comps on a daily basis anymore by tweeting the comp. So I was wondering if you could help us compers out by adding in a different way to share your comps daily?. Some good ones would be like & comment on a FB page daily, or heart & comment on a inst post daily, thumbs up & or watch a video on your yutube account, Klout you daily (No this is not actually hitting anyone!) anything like that would be fab because then the people who are shadowbaned can still enter your comps daily & share your blogs.

    I would normally tweet about this but at the moment it's like shouting into a empty bucket!.

    Yes people who are shadowbaned do get their twitter accounts back in 24-48 hours but as soon as they start tweeting comp links again get banned once more, yes some people are doing OK & can still tweet daily but so many of us now aren't & we would love to enter your comps daily.

    Thanks for reading & your time if you could spread the word to other bloggers too that would also help

    Like I said many times now, you think differently about how to comp, nought wrong with that you like numbers I don't.

    My comping goes along these lines:

    Ooo that's nice would like to win that!
    Bookmark comp
    Enter as many things as I want or not (varies from day to day depending on energy levels)
    repeat daily until comp ends

    That's me

    Right talking about energy levels time I bow out of this thread as it's going round in circles & can't add anymore than I already have & it's not a great way to use what limited energy I have left for the day

    Hope all bloggers who hold comps have loads of entries & thanks for holding them. Here's to all compers having loads of wins for the rest of the year

    Happy comping

    As I already said there is nothing wrong with entering that way, but if a site wanted to attract a larger number of unique visitors rather than just a larger number of visits then not having daily entries would probably be the way to go.
