Does anyone know what makes a post get "published" on this site?
I thought it might be getting five votes, but there are published posts with fewer than five. I can't find any FAQ or any explanation.
I found some stats which say that all my votes so far are categorised as "unpublished", even when I voted for published posts, so I am just confused.
I also tried clicking on the categories down the side, and there are no posts in any of them, even the categories that I posted my own posts in - how does THAT work?
P.S. Thanks for reminding me about DropJack - when I registered with GoArticles they tried to get me interested in it, but there was zero activity. Nice to see it's started moving a little, and HEY, the PR from the GoArticles site is clearly transmitting. Get published there and you are on a PR 4 page immediately.
Look what you did to this site with just one little forum post.
It's getting me thinking - DropJack seems to have an identical engine behind it - only the decoration is different. If we has five or six hubbers on there at the same time, maybe we could dominate its front page, too.
Isn't it amazing how quickly a handfull of inspired and active members can achieve results?
Thanks so much everyone this is definately hub-domination at it's best : )
If anyone wants to drop into to dropjack.com my user name there is shayericho
I've just found jenny 'inspire' : )
Question for the informed - is it only about the votes or does publication criteria include traffic stats? Guess my question is do we have to click through to the site or just vote for our fellow hubbers? If we do click through that's going to automatically increase hubscores too isn't it?
thanks again everyone - this is such a great community!
LOL That's the real power of Web 2! I'm befriending everybody's account, too
OK, some answers to questions asked here.
Yes, there is no PR yet, it's a brand new site. I just discovered it myself yesterday night. PR will come, and while it is nice to have - any extra link, even from a page without PR helps your ranking. Think what you put in anchor, though
Don't submit only your site/hubs, please. Nobody really likes that, unless it is specifically encouraged. This is not the case here. So, try to diversify.
Getting on the first page is nice, but it does not have any SEO effect. Neither of those sites is DIGG, so nobody will pick your links from there and publish all over the net. Even for PR5 dropjack homepage SEO benefits are limited to a couple of weeks while Google remembers that there once was a link to your hub there.
What I do - I try to get as many votes as possible - votes are links from other profiles that transfer link juice internally. And I social bookmark details page to bring in some external link love
Not only does blogatiser.com not have any Page Rank, according to Yahoo it only has one inbound link, and none according to Google, and Compete.com shows no traffic history. I think I'll spend my time on getting links elsewhere.
I just added you as a friend over there! This will be a great experiment to see how viral advertising really works- and the power of networking between friends and business associates is undeniably powerful!
If you have some topic suggestions post them here and i will add them in the morning its late here now.[/quote) David, I know it's late where your'e at but I have a question about the site: (if you could get back to me tomorrow that would be awesome) Is there a way to change what tag I put some of my submssions under? I just realized I accidentally put some things under automobile- I looked for a place on your site to ask for help but didn't know where to ask- Thanks and hope you can get some sleep!
If you go to the bookmark itself, and you are the submitter, there's a little link to the right which says "admin tools" or suchlike. When you press that you get another link appear, which says "edit title/description". When you click that it reopens the entire submission box and you can change anything you like.
(I did the same thing - submitted one as auto by mistake, lol)
I've joined a few of you as friends and done a wee bit of voting, don't have time to do much more right now!
I can't help noticing that almost everyone has submitted their own work. Isn't this meant to be a Digg lookalike, i.e we're meant to be submitting sites we think have value, not just advertising our own stuff? Which means we should be submitting each other's work, not our own?
There is an open source program which these sites are built on so they are all similar - but at least they all work the same way as well. At the moment with such a new site all "management" was is lots of content to be added so the site itself will get on google's radar - imagine the bot is going around in circles at the moment with this sudden burst of activity.
Maybe later they will change the rules but as Mark said the stie is happy they have content and users - Im happy because I have do-follow backlinks : in fact on of my submissions (not hubpages) just got indexed - been trying for over a week - probably a coincidnece but...
