    quick POF tip on hiding profile

    you guys realize that if you keep your profile hidden on POF, it won't show up on search results but girls have no idea it's hidden when you contact them. so you can basically create as many profiles as you need and use whichever one fits the particular chick you're opening. when i had my profile unhidden i found that very few girls even looked at it, let alone contacted me, so it was basically a waste of time. but when i make contact i get a solid response rate, so no need to put myself in the public view at all. i have actually seen chicks i know on the site so i'm glad they now can't see me lurking.

    But that also dramatically decreases the amount of women who will view you also, doesn't it?
    Things you should know about QualityGame:

    As good as I am, I still need to grow in certain areas.

    So...

    A) Don't assume I'm an expert just because some of my responses are "GOLD."

    but at the same time...

    B) Don't assume that because I'm NOT an expert, my responses CAN'T be gold.

    well like i said i was getting so few views (let alone approaches) there was really no point to it. i think it has to do with my location in a massive city, where there are tons and tons of guys online, so the chicks just sit back and watch their inboxes fill up. and my profile has enough DHVs that low value chicks see they'd be wasting their time with me.

    And your views actually INCREASED once you HID the profile? That's interesting.

    Maybe it's because when you email them, or they view your page, they immediately notice that they HAVEN'T seen you before (your profile pic never popped up before, etc.) So maybe THAT, in a way is DHV, lol.

    Interesting point dannyterio, when I'm browsing for targets I notice the same old faces popping up and in particular those who are 'Online Now', maybes it's the same for the girls out there, so you're someone different to check out.

    I also have my profile hidden 99% of the time, due to the fact that there are a few girls on there who I have mutual friends with and if they found out I was using the site it would DLV for me in one of my social circles.

    Regardless I notice that once I message someone they may not always reply but they will at least view my profile, which obviously helps me get a higher response rate. Prior to having my profile hidden I didn't get too many views or messages and those that did I just wasn't attracted to physically. So at the end of the day having my profile hidden has perhaps helped give me some uniqueness and a slight edge over the competition.

    Interesting. For me the views come in hills and valleys... I might get ten in one day, then only one or two over the next couple of days. One of the things I like to do on PoF is cycle my profile pic and headline every few weeks, or even mess with the first three interests on the profile. I usually see a bump in views immediately following, though your mileage may vary. If you link to your profile, maybe we'll find out that your profile picture isn't doing you any favors.

    Obviously, the more often you're online, you'll show up closer to the top of the search results there, PoF likes to key off of online now and online recently. Make sure you log in every 2-3 days even just for a few minutes.

    PoF is kind of a black box... how does it know who belongs in the "These users think you're hot" list? Who knows. I know "My Matches" cycles a bit at the beginning of the week, which is usually when I get my views (Monday-Wednesday I get a spike). Of course if you're hidden, I don't think you'll be in anyone's matches.

    I'm in Chicago and I get a fair amount of views. Sounds like you have some solid reasons for wanting your profile hidden, but others might get some help out of this post.
