In answer to a question, blog rankings, as shown on the home page, are based on the number of unique readers each day for the past week. We believe this is a good indicator of the value of a blog, since it benefits blogs that consistently attract readers.
If you are a writer, here are some tips to help improve your blog's rank by increasing your readership:
- Post consistently and frequently.
- Add posts to an existing blog instead of creating a new blog. Blogs with multiple posts typically have more readers, and are thus ranked higher. Since readers can add a blog to their favorites, it's easy for them to track new posts.
- Want to create a new blog because the post is not appropriate for an existing blog? Before you do this, ask yourself whether you plan to consistently update the new blog. If you don't, add the post to an existing blog, even if it is off-topic. Keep in mind that you can always change the category of a blog.
