Hi again

1. I see where the wizzley rank is on my dashboard, but I don't know where to look for author rank?

2. Now in regards to the wizzley page rank, there is something odd in mine. A second wizzle was created (not sure how, but irrelevant to my question) and it is sitting in draft because it is nothing, I need to delete it. But what is odd, the wizzle which is nothing is 50% and my real wizzle, the one that is published is 47%.

Will this get fixed? How can an unpublished page with no content get a higher rank than a published page?

Maybe I need to wait a few more days for it to adjust iitself accordingly?

You can see your author rank in your profile pic on your profile page.

And yes, wait a couple days for adjustments. Pages start out at 50% but adjust after publishing to their "real" rank.

If you're used to the way scores work on a site like Hubpages, you'll find them a little different here. 

I have quite a few pages in the 20s and 30s. However scores don't really change anything (except how high you rank on the front page or sub sections).

All outgoing links are dofollow once you write five quality articles.

Thank you both chef and wrylit for reponding. I see the numbers now.

So if it doesn't change things, those articles that are featured or shown on the sub sections, would they not get more traffic, or do users not come to those through search engines.

What I mean is - if the sub section pages with the list of articles is indexed, then visitors would come and choose their own articles to view. Those on the first would get the most traffic.

I am just wondering really, if having a good article showing in the bottom makes any difference?

I hope I explained my question well enough.

Internal rankings don't affect your organic Google traffic through SERPs.

However, as you've stated correctly - it pays to create attractive pages that elicit lots of likes and comments, and thus achiever higher rankings within Wizzley. Better visibility = more traffic.

Siserou - I get what you're saying. Yes, the subsection pages where your page is displayed will most likely be indexed by Google, however I think it's unlikely you'll get many search engine visits that way.

I think it'smore likely that people who visit one article then end up staying on the site to browse would visit articles that way.

The only exception would be the main page, which is where anyone visiting the site or simply clicking the logo would be most likely to end up. 

So other than traffic you might get from ranking on the front page, I doubt that internal subsection ranking would really get you much traffic, if that makes sense?

Thx very much for the clarification wrylilt. I do understand it a lot better now with that explanation.

Awesome, glad you got it. I think I was confusing myself a little by the end - with lots of 'net stuff it's easy to understand it in your head but not always so easy to put it down in a coherent and understandable format!
