Hello friendly writers!


So I noticed that my author ranking is at 0% even though I have written two articles and have my Wizzography posted. Can you please tell me what my ranking means and how I can improve it?



With love, Alisha Lutz

While I am not fully au fait with the details of author ranking, you must realize that you are new and therefore it will take a bit of time, but if you persist it will rise.

Hi, fellow newbie. 

I have been here for 25 days or so, so I don't know much. I have written 3 articles which have gone through, and I have written 2 more which I will be posting soon. I will be posting my Wizzography today as well to make 6. With three articles, I have a ranking of 15%.

I think it's more about the nature of your posts than the volume. 15 percent is pretty depressing, but I am working to get it higher with every article I write.

Try to check out some of the best writers here and emulate them. I am not saying copy what they write, I know you would want to be original. All I am saying is, learn from them in the areas of formatting and presentation. That is what I am doing and hopefully it will increase my rating.

Things can be discouraging for us newcomers. Like the other day, one of my articles was straight up blocked! That was two hours after I had posted. It was disheartening at first, but it only showed the Admins were actually watching the site.

Welcome, looking forward to your articles. Smile

Hi, and welcome!

Author's ranking is made of several factors: your engagement in community, traffic to your articles, engagements of readers of your articles, etc. It took me about ten articles to get 100%, but I was very active in those days.

While it may be flattering to one's ego, this number has nothing to do with your ability for earning. But the number of your articles, quality of them, topics you are writing about, etc. do. So my advice would be to focus on creating content. Numbers on your profile will follow.

The author rank varies as well.  It not only goes up, but it also goes down.  Frankly, I wish these sites didn't have these ranking numbers.  They mean nothing to Google, have nothing to do with earnings.  They only drive members nuts and cause some to simply get fed up and move their content.
