The end of the EntreCard CashOut-Program has already affected some of the popular blogs in specific categories in EntreCard.
Some of these members had been just here for earning credits to reach a high amount in a short time by dropping each day 300 cards which they could use for CashOut.
As now the option of the Cashout is no more available for them, they just stop dropping their 300 cards or reduce it to an average level.
My tip for you is now, wait some days until you buy advertisements on the blogs in EntreCard. I had now several blogs where the advertising price was always above the 256 ECs.
Now they dropped to 64 EC or below because the other members don't drop any more on their blogs which means their popularity is sinking rapidly.
Popularity in EntreCard is measured by the drops on your own EntreCard widget during the LAST FIVE DAYS.
Just wait until the weekend and see which blogs are worth the money to invest in an advertisement, otherwise you buy now for over 100 or 200 ECs an ad and in the end the blog doesn't drop anymore and you get just a few clicks instead of a better return on your investment!
