Here’s another email that is circulating. Again, actors, IMDB ranking doesn’t get you work if you don’t have a plethora of legit credits and an agent.

WHAT EXACTLY IS THE STAR METER AND MOVIE METER RANKING?
Updated weekly, the Star Meter and Movie Meter rankings provide a snapshot of popularity about actors and films based on the searches of millions of IMDb visitors.

DO INDUSTRY PEOPLE REALLY PAY ATTENTION TO THE IMDb RANKNGS?
Yes! The IMDb Star Meter Ranking has become the de facto tool used by all types of industry professionals to gauge an actor or film’s popularity. If you are an actor looking for an agent, or on the verge of booking a big job, agents, casting directors, and producers are looking at your IMDb Star Meter Ranking to help them decide whether you are popular enough to hire and work with. If you are a filmmaker looking for distribution, companies will factor in your film’s Movie Meter Ranking number when determining whether or not to buy/distribute your film, and at what price to pay you.
HOW LOW CAN MY RATING NUMBER GET?
You should expect to see an improvement of at least 50%, but could be as much as 99%, depending on how low your Meter Ranking already is.
HOW QUICKLY WILL MY METER RANKING IMPROVE?
We begin your 30 day boost within 1 hours of receiving your order. However, IMDb only updates their meter ranking system once a week (usually on Mondays). Therefore, depending on which day of the week you start, it may take up to 7 days, or one full IMDb cycle update, before you begin to see the full effects from Hollywood Star Booster.
CAN ANYONE FIND OUT I AM USING THIS SERVICE?
No. We have a very strict policy of never revealing who is, or ever has been, using our service.
IS THIS ILLEGAL OR SOME KIND OF SPAM?
No. The use of Hollywood Star Booster is not illegal, and it is not spam. We do not use any type of spambot to generate the IP’s. Every single IP address we use is legit, and owned by us. Plus you are not doing anything wrong. You are simply advertising your your name which is your property.
IS HOLLYWOOD STAR BOOSTER OWNED OR OPERATED BY IMDb?
No. Hollywood Star Booster is in no way affiliated with IMBb, IMDB Pro, or any of it’s subsidiaries.
WHY DOES MY RANKING FLUCTUATE EACH WEEK?
There are factors other than just direct visitors that IMDb uses to determine your weekly ranking that can effect your number (ie: popularity of projects you are connected to), which make is almost impossible to keep a ranking unchanged each week. Even when using Hollywood Star Booster, your ranking can still fluctuate 10% or more from week to week.
