    Just wondering from the big boys and everyone else...how often do you check stats? I check my rankings every Thursday & Sunday and my affiliate pays on Sundays. I do it this way so I can see if my work that I put into for the week has paid off LOL

    So how often?

    I use statsremote and take a peak a few times a day, when starting out the sensation of new easy money had me checking once an hour.

    I try to hold myself from looking I have got it down to the 1x per week. Once I ramp up a few more sites I may change that to every other day LOL

    Check my rank once a day via serpbook.
    Check my affiliate pay twice a day, when I start my PC and before I shutdown it, another check if I get sale notification on my mobile phone.

    You gotta know your stats at all times... I guess it depends on what you are doing but definitely the closer look you pay to your stats the better you will be able to deal with any potential problem; specially if you are running rtc/ppc/etc campaigns.

    I check mine twice to 4 times a day, takes 1 second to check them and you can develop a sense of when do your offers perform best, which can definitely give you a competitive advantage.

    I think you should be checking your stats once per day or more. Why would you check it once or twice per week? What if something goes wrong and you lose out a weeks worth of earnings when you could have detected an issue much faster?
