Blogging Points

By
Real Estate Agent with Cascades Sotheby's International Realty

 

Okay one more question on this points thing.  I have been somewhat addicted to Active Rain ~ yes I have been up late at night and early in the morning surfing around.  I've found some great tools and info as well as some great success stories and encouragements during such a down market. 

Heres my question for all you heavy hitters and point getters out there.  Do you get points based on the content of your blog?  Or based on the comments you receive?  I know you receive 200 points per blog - I just can't figure out why my total blogging points isn't a factor of # of blogs X 200.

At the very least answer my question and get your 25 points for commenting!

Kelly - it looks like you have all the answers to you question.  I think that watching your "points summary" is the best way for you to determine where the highter points are coming from!  Great job and keep up all the blogging!

PS Great cartoon "to blog or not to blog .... "  That is indeed "the right question" - too funny :)

I opened this to find out the secret... I really don't know how the points past 200 works. I just try to post something that interests me and hopefully it generates something. I like to do a mix of "giving back" posts and localism. It's the low attention getting localism posts that have brought me the clients.

So many points' factors go into a post. First you do get 200 points for posts over 50 words, if you don't go over 10 per week, then no 200 points. But, if you write a great post and you are over your 10 posts per week you still get points for comments.

Now, lets say you write the best local post ever, you can get 200 bonus points for getting featured on localism or if you write a great post just for Activerain members and not featured on localism, you get an extra 100 points plus the comment points.

So, in a way you do get more points for content, because if you write a great post you get lots of comments and also featured points.

So keep writing and earning those points and enjoy what you are doing.

Kelly, great question. I'm reading all the answers to get more  informed myself. It makes more sense but I don't think I'll ever get all of this!!! :):)
