Rating Stars on Helium
This hub is for all of you Helium writers looking for an explanation to why your rating stars are decreasing instead of increasing. I decided to write this hub when I logged into Helium to see that I had no rating stars after I spent many hours rating other articles.
For those who don't know, Helium is an article writing website where you can write articles and earn money. As a Helium writer, you earn Writing Stars and Rating Stars. Like many of us already know, you need to have rating stars to be able to earn revenue share from Helium.
How many rating stars do you need to earn money?
When I first started writing for Helium, I didn't even know that I needed to rate articles to qualify for revenue share. It turns out that you need to have at least one rating star to earn any sort of residual income from your Helium articles. When I did realize that I needed to rate other articles to earn rating stars, I just figured the more articles that I rate means the more rating stars I would earn. This is not correct. The quality of your ratings is what counts at Helium. It isn't the quantity of articles you rate, it is the quality of how you rate other articles.
Of course, I figured that it wasn't fair that I just spent hours rating helium articles and after logging back into Helium later, my one and only rating star disappeared. Why did my rating star disappear? I went into panic mode and searched for why my rating star disappeared instead of me gaining five more rating stars. I guess my article ratings were not quality ratings.
Getting rating stars on Helium is a private algorithm that involves percentiles and quality of ratings so if you are also wondering why your rating stars decreased instead of increasing, then you should remember that there are a few factors to consider when trying to earn rating stars at Helium.
Below is just a brief summary of what I found when I researched information about rating stars on Helium and how to earn and keep the rating stars.
