Check out the ‘Top 1000’ daily (free) ClustrMaps users! March 3, 2008Posted by ClustrMaps Team in News.
Users love ‘leaderboards’, ‘league tables’, and the ability to see what other ClustrMaps users are up to. For this reason, we have decided to bring back a feature we had a long time ago, but in a bigger way: rather than listing (say) the top 10 or top 100 users, we are going for the TOP 1000 USERS. By default, we only list users of the free service, on the grounds that paying users have typically expressed interest in more privacy. Also, free users have a lower limit on the number of daily visits we typically expect them to receive, and this makes it more appropriate for this kind of table.
NOTE 1: Gigantic high-volume users are not shown! The reason is as follows: to keep this fair and more accessible to the ‘middle and low volume users’, we provide an upper-limit cutoff, so only the top 1000 users with less than the cutoff number are shown. This cutoff (maximum) limit is displayed on the Top 1000 Users page at http://clustrmaps.com/top-users.html, and may change from time to time, but is typically around 10,000 or 15 ,000 visitors daily. We consider this a very fair and lenient policy – after all, our announced limit for free users is 2,500 visitors daily. But since we take pride in the fact that our service tends to provide a much more scalable display than others, we want to remain somewhat flexible!
NOTE 2: Paying (ClustrMaps+) users are not shown! This is explained in the opening paragraph.
NOTE 3: The list is updated every day at approximately midnight GMT/UTC.
