Read to Recommend Ratio

Anybody Want To Share? & A Couple Other Questions

I am mostly curious to see how others do in this stats category. I currently sit at 8.3% last 30 days. Does not seem very impressive but no idea what is typical. Until very recently (like last 4 days) I almost never recommended my own writings. I do not know if that counts or not in the stats but it seemed sort of tacky to me. Then I heard or read something about if you don’t do that it is harder for other people to find them or something. Is that true? Anybody know details on that? Also, I am probably sitting at around 80% bot followers at the moment. Just a guess but I think it is roughly accurate. Does anybody know if they impact stats in anyway (besides followers numbers obviously)? I do not see how they could contribute to page views or reads but maybe I am being naive. Please reply in comments. Thx!
