Fake Who’s Online for WordPress

Description

Fake whos online for WordPress is a plugin/wdget that allows you to display a fake amount of users online on your WordPress site.
It will display a random number of members (upto 50) and guests (upto 100) in the front end via the widget.

  • Changing the text

If you want to change the text you can do that here, you may want the guest text to display ‘visitors’ instead, simply type in how you want the members/guests text to appear in the front-end widget here.

If you want even more members and guests online and more control and options then upgrade to the PRO version.

  • Setting up members

This option allows you to choose the minimum and maximum amount of members you want online, the widget will choose a random number between these values for you.

You don’t want a fixed static amount of members online, you want this number to fluctuate giving the illusion of members logging on and off, the amount of members online will never go above or below the values you set here.

  • How long do they stay online?

This option is how long the current random total of members should be displayed for (in seconds).

If you set this to 30 seconds that means the front end widget will display the current random total of members for 30 seconds no matter how many times you refresh the page, after this time expires a new total of members will be displayed (randomly chosen again) for another 30 seconds and so on… The number of members that are ever chosen will never go above or below the values you have previously set in the min/max options. This is the key to creating realistic traffic fluctuation on your site.

If you look at the fake whos online widget on the left of this page I have set it up with the settings you see in the image at the top of this page, you should be able to refresh this page and the values for both members and guests should stay the same for 30 seconds at a time.

  • Turn of member display

If your wordpress site doesnt have registered members ie. you may be running a blog, you can turn off the members display completely so that only the guests display shows in the front end widget, simply tick the box next to ‘hide member display’ to turn it off.

What a stupid way o cheating. Just do a refresh on a page and suddenly 10 more members but 50 guests less are shown. This plugin is not only cheating visitors but it is also missing some intelligence in doing so.
