chart rank hyphen - reverbnation?
A while ago Audio Life that manages the sales of reverbnation artists stopped accepting my Visa Debit Card and insisted that they have never accepted them and have only accepted Credit Cards
I have TWO invoices that Dispute that, but apparently no one cares because im wrong : /
To rub salt in the wound i woke today to find i am no longer within ANY chart
I Was Number 1 Liverpool
I Was Number 1 UK
I Was Number 1 Globally
My chart listing is now just a - Sign/Symbol
(now if i hadn't noticed this i would of NOT been notified!!!!!!!!!)
i asked on their support forum and my post was closed and i received an email stating this

Firstly i never sent an Email..
Secondly i can't afford 3rd party services
Third... did they not realize that reaching number ONE in the world would Increase Traffic
(ive been featured on other blogs, ive promoted with a Music Give Away)
thats besides the fact my music is prity dam good considering my equipment....
Now.... if i am to understand this right, i need to STOP promoting my music, i need to DISABLE my widget, because clearly my .NET tutorial made my blog to popular and in turn my widget received to many song plays...
I need to beg all these RAP STARS to STOP ADDING ME TO THEIR FANS LIST
And although i WAS number 1 in the world i need to STOP getting fans...
I have roughly 6530 twitter followers
Scammers have 50,000+
I have roughly 1240 FB Page Likes
Scammers have 50,000+
I have roughly 29,000 YouTube Subscribers
Scammers have 400,000+
I have roughly 6000 mySpace Followers
Scammers have 50,000+
My stats are stable
So a lesson here i am seeing is if an artist stuck at number 2 has some funding
RATHER THAN RISK HIS OWN ACCOUNT
all's THEY have to do is spend a few dollars to buy you some fans on a site and BANG
their number 1... and your gone...
Interesting and clearly ANOTHER NAIL into my dealings with reverb nation
I have a meeting friday to talk about funding and possibly going self employed
being number ONE in my Home Town would of helped
being number ONE in my Home Country would of helped
being number ONE in the Whole World would of REALLY HELPED
and being their with BASIC STATS would of also been honest
but i have just learn't today that ANYONE can get you thrown out the charts for a mere $2.99 a month
(that's about £1.52 a month to keep your rivals at bay) by simply backing their rivals account instead of their own account
doesn't this also mean i can no longer work on my own blog because MY pc is accessing the blogs widget?
see when people start googling "Reverbnation Missing Rank" or "Rank Now A Hyphen"
that will affect my reverb stats while you guys are reading this to which WTF is the correct way to get publicity and stats besides by helping OTHERS, rather than paying for fake ones : /
Begs the question, if im number 1 in the world.. and actually miles ahead of anyone else
why ide actually need more fans.... to which this is how it looks now that i am essentially Invisible
To Which... MARCH 2013...
Here is a random reason why stats get elevated all on their own...
When you watch "most" of my music videos, you'll notice im normaly Featured in YELLOW at the top with TWO of my other music videos...
using google spider to enhance your Coverage is bog standard marketing....
I don't pay anyone to get featured...
